Destination II Overdrive

The Option 5 Destination Overdrive II is a guitar effects pedal designed to provide a range of harmonically pleasing tones. It features improved bass response, standard 9-volt operation, and true bypass functionality, eliminating the "THUMP" associated with switching. Unlike its predecessor, the original Destination Overdrive, the DOII uses a standard 9VDC wallwart, with internal voltage stepping to retain the desired headroom. This overdrive pedal is not a "Screamer" clone but utilizes proprietary circuitry to create a natural, smooth overdrive with a usable range from subtle, bluesy tones to metal crunch. The pedal also boasts excellent note separation and overtones.

Destination Phase

The Option 5 Destination Phase is a stereo phase shifter with entirely analog circuitry and true panning capabilities. It offers the following technical specifications: \- Input Impedance: 1 Meg Ohm \- Output Impedance: 1 K Ohm \- Bypass: Non-Tone-Sucking Bypass \- Voltage: 9 Volts DC, center negative \- Power: Can be powered from any regulated 9 Volt DC, center negative supply \- Controls: \- Speed: Sweeps at a rate determined by the position of the Speed knob, with the ability to control the speed of the sweep. \- Depth: Controls the amplitude of the phase notch, allowing for gentle blending of the amount of phasing. \- Regeneration: Feeds a portion of the phase signal back into the phasing circuitry, making the phase effect deeper and introducing a toothy, whistling effect. The pedal is designed to be smooth and luscious, offering a slow sweep at fully counter-clockwise, and the ability to gradually remove the phasing sound with the Depth control. The Regeneration control increases the amount of feedback and whistle. The Destination Phase is a fairly straightforward unit to set up and operate, suitable for mono or stereo setups. It can be powered by a 9-volt battery or a 9-volt adapter.

Destination Phase Phaser Pedal

The Option 5 Destination Phase Phaser Pedal is a stereo phase shifter constructed with all-analog circuitry. Its features include true panning, stereo phase shifting, distortion-free peaks, a wide range of speed control, and a non-tone-altering depth control. The pedal also offers a cool regeneration control and a non-tone-sucking bypass. It is RoHS compliant and can be powered by either a battery or a standard 9-volt wallwart. The depth control acts as a level control for the amount of phase mixed into the original signal, and the speed control allows the phaser to sweep slower than other phasers, making it suitable for creating a super cool doubling/panning effect in stereo. The LED pulses in time with the effect, providing visual feedback to the user.
