The Marauder pedal is based on the preamp found in the classic Peavey Bandit Blue/Teal stripe amplifier from the late 1980s and 1990s.
The pedal uses a standard boss-style 9V power supply. There is internal circuitry to generate a ±15V power supply, just like the original amplifiers used.
Controls include: Pre (gain), Post ("volume"), Master, Bottom, Body, and Edge. The Bottom, Body and Edge controls are an active boost/cut EQ as on the original amp. The Pre control acts like the "Supersat" control on the original amp. The Post control is the volume control. During the design of the pedal, we noticed that changing the post control to make the pedal output higher also resulted in a change in the tone and character of the distortion, so we added a Master volume control to help keep the tone you like with the post control but be able adjust the output volume.
We kept the Bright switch that was only functional on the clean channel on the original amp. Also, there is a low/hi gain switch and a shift switch that adjusts the mid frequency for the active EQ.
