The Sacred Cow was featured in a recent edition of Premier Guitar's Rig Rundown featuring Guns N' Roses! Richard Fortus has been rocking one for quite some time now, and we're ecstatic that word is getting around.

The Sacred Cow is a playful nod to two classics: the legendary, elusive, gold standard overdrive, and the center of Texas culinary tradition: beef.
The Sacred Cow has all of the drive and and character that you would expect, ranging from slightly boosted clean to a nice gain, with some bite, that sits perfectly in a mix. We sought to create an accessible, pedalboard friendly version of this circuit, with some added flexibility, while remaining very faithful to the overall tone.
