The Calhoun V2 is a collaborative signature pedal for legendary guitarist, writer, and producer Mike Campbell. Mike is most known for his role in Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, but he has worked closely with such artists as Don Henley, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, George Harrison, Jackson Browne, Brian Setzer, Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac and The Wallflowers to name a few. He also is a founding member of Mudcrutch and has a side project called the Dirty Knobs. When the opportunity to create his only signature pedal came to us, we were honored, to say the least. Let’s go over what the Calhoun V2 has to offer.
The Calhoun V2 is a 2-in-1 overdrive/fuzz pedal that is designed around Mike’s specific desires for live and studio performance. The left side of the Calhoun is the drive portion of the pedal with Volume, Drive, Treble, and Bass controls. The Volume control is a master level control allowing you to set the maximum or minimum volume of the pedal. The Drive control adjusts how much dirt/distortion you are allowing in the circuit. The Treble and Bass controls adjust the EQ of the pedal, allowing you to darken and brighten the frequencies as needed. The right side of the Calhoun V2 is the fuzz portion, with Volume, Fuzz, Bias, and EQ controls. The Volume control acts as the same master volume control as the left side. The Fuzz control adjusts the intensity of the fuzz sound. The Bias control adjusts the voltage to the circuit allowing more powerful tones that bloom with more headroom or weaker and more saturated tones. The EQ control lets you set the range of tone from dark to bright as you wish. The toggle switch allows you to choose the order of the two effects when stacked (both on at the same time). The effect that the toggle is pointed at is first in series; this lets you stack the effects in whichever way you desire to achieve different textures of stacked tones.
The power jack is a standard 9v DC operation. The right 1/4″ jack is the input jack where you plug in your instrument. The left 1/4″ jack is the output jack where you go out into your amplifier.
Last but not least you may have noticed from the first look demo we shared with you from the Heartbreakers rehearsal space in LA: Calhoun is a real dog. Not only does Mike love dogs but he and his wife are very involved with an amazing organization called The Tazzy Fund. Mike has requested that every penny of his profits from each unit go directly to The Tazzy Fund Animal Rescue to help fund its needs and mission. Check out their info here: https://www.tazzyfund.com
The Calhoun is the perfect pedal for the player who wants straightforward, no frills and easy to use dirt tones in a single package. It covers everything you need for rock and blues tones with ease. Be a part of rock & roll history and join Mike by adding the Calhoun V2 to your rig!
Operates at standard DC Negative 9V.
Despite what our website says directly below, this product has not “SOLD OUT” …The Calhoun V2 is not yet available and will become available early spring 2017. When we set our Inventory to “0” on a product, our website is hardcoded to say “SOLD OUT” even though it has not even become available …Apologies for the confusion.
The Milkman uses standard 9v DC Negative power only.

The No. 2 is KHDK’s original Clean Boost, utilizing the strength of KHDK’s unique circuit. Providing a warm, tube-like boost, it was designed for those who appreciate a natural and subtle gain. Best used as a tool for shaping your tone on a quality all-tube amp, the No. 2 allows the organic and transparent EQ controls to fully develop your tone.
Made in the USA.
Conceived in the dark depths of Kirk Hammett’s mind and forged in the secret laboratories of KHDK, an iconic circuit has been perfected to achieve its full potential and create the ultimate tone, with all the control in your hands. The Ghoul Screamer is a multipurpose pedal, a true utility knife of overdrives, featuring three standard controls and five additional switches.
The dramatic versatility of the controls spans from a clean boost all the way to a massive overdrive. In addition to the three standard controls (drive, tone, volume) five switches have been added. This significantly enhances the sound palette and - together with carefully selected and tested parts - elevates the Ghoul Screamer to the highest class of stage and studio gear. Proudly built and hand-tested in Kentucky and complete with haunting artwork by San Francisco’s tattoo wizard Tim Lehi, the Ghoul Screamer has the makings of an icon. Made in the USA.
The Ghoul Screamer is a tube screamer on steroids.– Kirk Hammett
Oh, the Soda Meiser. It's more than just a punny name. For starters, there is a lovely warm and intricate low(er) gain fuzz tone. Great for turning gentle strumming into walls of harmonically dense sound. Turning the gain up will gradually introduce more upper harmonic accents until you are wrangling an upper-octave fuzz beast that's trying to get away from you. Even better! Now the chaos switch is standard! Flip it up to enter the realm of fuzz danger where up is down and rabbits eat dogs.
The Cosmichorus doesn't stop at giving you an incredible array of chorus sounds though... Dr. Scientist insists you have an incredible amount of control over the sounds too!Made in Canada
The BitQuest is a digital multi-effect pedal featuring the option of using the different effects with a high-gain digital distortion or clean (with expanded control). The different selectable effects patches are 8 carefully selected and hand-programmed effects that sound cool clean and with distortion. The 8 effects patches are selectable by the rotary switch (the knob right above the toggle switch). The different effects patches are as follows:
- High Pass & Low Pass Filters
- Bit Crusher with Sample Rate Reducer
- Infinite Reverb
- Notch Filter
- Ring Modulator
- Octave Pitch Shifter / Harmonizer
- Delay (5 ms to 1 second)
No.1 is the original KHDK Overdrive. Powered by our unique proprietary circuit, the No.1 was born from years of passion and sweat, experimenting and tweaking with the tones we heard, loved and set out to perfect.
As versatile as it is bold, the No.1 is designed in the spirit of an overdriven tube amp. It features two gain controls which cascade the gain stages for a rich and harmonic overdrive. Gain one controls the first gain stage from a pure clean boost to a naturally compressing overdrive. Gain two shares one knob with the Bass control. It cleverly controls the gain and the low end of the next gain stage, which adds rich harmonics, bottom end and natural tube-like saturation to your tone. It is designed as an active high-pass filter for the second gain stage and will allow you to set the amount of bottom end with precision.
Made in the USA.
Although the new Cream & Onyx Beta sports a fresh look the circuit itself has not been changed and is sonically identical to the original cream and orange version.Made in Canada.
