Behold: The Second Coming of Nergal’s infamous LCFR. This cursed box from Hell is an overdrive/booster for your aggressive, demonic high-gain sound.

“I wanted KHDK to create LCFR The Second Coming as a more brutal version of the first and KHDK made it more Diabolic than ever.”
~ Nergal

The Second Coming builds on the first edition, with an added mid control SULFUR for yet more aggressive force that wails with evil…thus rendering it even more versatile for a range of playing styles. 

Fine-tuned with your and Nergal's input based on the first edition, The Second Coming is a state-of-the-art piece of audio engineering that even its namesake, The Lord of Darkness, would be proud to plug in.

Every pedal is assembled, hand-printed and guitar-tested in Prague.

Recommended pairing: limited edition LCFR White Chocolate

Controls & Specs

LCFR CONTROLS

SUMMA: Controls the amount of output volume. Tip: The output gets insanely loud on the maximum setting, especially when your Gain control is also set high. You’ve been warned...

IGNIS:  Adjusts the amount of your input signal. Turning this knob up increases the breakup. On high settings, it brings a smooth clipping/compression to your signal.

Tip: With both the Gain and Volume dimmed, the LCFR may be too loud.  Sometimes squealing or feedback may occur when other controls are dimmed too. Find a good balance of these two controls. For a cleaner signal, turn your Gain low and dim the Volume. This setting works best for boosting a tube amp with its own overdrive - and the LCFR works as a powerful toneshaper. If you want the LCFR to produce its own clipping and overdrive, turn the Gain high and adjust your output with the Volume knob.

NOX: This active control adjusts your low frequencies. It’s neutral at noon, boosts the lows when turned clockwise and cuts the bass when turned counterclockwise. Tip: Bass is hugely useful for shaping your signal with a low-tuned guitar. Cutting of the lows before distorting your signal gives you a faster attack and a tight bass response. 

LUX: This active control adjusts the high frequencies. It’s neutral at noon, boosts your highs when turned clockwise, and cuts the highs when turned counterclockwise.  Tip: Use the Highs to shape your tone in the pre-distortion stage. Cutting your highs before distortion brings a smoother, mellow tone, perfect for soloing. For aggressive rhythm playing, boost the highs to cut through in the mix and add a precision to your playing.

SULFUR: Boosts or cuts the mid frequencies, but within this control there are two frequencies which adds a very unique additional aggressiveness to your tone.

BYPASS STOMP SWITCH: Activates the whole circuit. When the LCFR is ON, the two amber lights are aglow. When the LCFR is off, it is true-bypassed with no effect on your tone.

LCFR POWER

Connect a 9-18V center negative power supply. The pedal can be powered by an external DC power supply. Use a stabilized DC with 2.1mm barrel connector and negative center. Use 9 to 18 Volts power source. Tip: 18 volts will give you a louder output and a cleaner sound.

LCFR can also be powered with a battery. Exchange it by unscrewing the bottom lid. Use a fresh alkaline battery. To preserve battery life, always unplug the input jack when the LCFR is not in use.
