The pickup mogul reckons it's "the first stompbox that actually captures the feel and responsiveness of a high-gain tube amp", with three gain stages and a fully featured EQ with sweepable mid frequency.
This triple gain threat means the Palladium can cover tones from light overdrive through to classic-rock grit and full-on metal distortion.
Elsewhere, resonance and presence controls shape the extreme low- and high-end, while a boost knob adds overdrive to the beginning of the signal path.
In fact, the whole package is so versatile, SD claims you can use it with a power amp, clean guitar amp or already distorted amp.
The Seymour Duncan Palladium is available from April for £349 street.
