Cornerstone Gladio


Available in 3 months

Cornerstone Gladio is a double preamp and takes your tone into the classic, creamy blues promise land.

The Gladio is based on a Dumble amp and it is not just an overdrive; it’s a realistic tube-compression preamp able to take the sound into saturation still always retaining a rich touch-sensitive response and realistic compression.

The pedal has two independent channels with totally different voices, which combined together offer an even wider range of sounds. The 1st channel is able to deliver a smooth and creamy sound. It’s really transparent and with a round touch-sensitive response that helps enhancing the playing. Controls (Gain, Tone and Volume) are self-explaining and there’s a toggle switch called COMP to choose between two different compression levels.

The 2nd channel is the “angry” side of the GLADIO, designed to offer a special hard clipping, sounding a bit fuzzy with a high harmonics generation result (much inspired by Sonny Landreth’s tones). Controls (Gain, Tone and Volume) are self-explaining and there’s a toggle switch called JAZZ/ROCK.

With the central toggle switch you can choose the order of the two channels. If you open up the pedal’s lid you would find two internal potentiometers, BASS for channel 1 and PRESENCE for channel 2.
