With such a name, you can expect it, this pedal is not made to accompany you to the ballroom. The KarDiaN Titania is a wicked distortion and made to devastate everything, but with elegance! Signature model of Japanese guitarist Leda (Baby Metal, Deluhi... and studio) it was the first pedal designed by the brand in 2017-2018 after 2 years of development. Fans of Hard-Rock, Metal, Djent and 7-8 Strings, this is where it's happening! This model being a limited series, it has a specific finish and a certificate of authenticity.
Let's start with the essentials, the chassis. So there... We can say it, it is extremely rare to have a case of this quality in your hands. It's a pure killer. Made of an extruded aluminum block, it is laser engraved with a multi-step process. The finish is magnificent, the attention to detail rarely seen for a product of this type (a pedal), it's light, super well insulated and it hits the pedalboard once. Inside, it's a beating as the Japanese know how to do. Simply the best and it's beautiful. Yes, it's beautiful to look at it's so well done. From Texas Instrument, WIMA's MPFC capacitors (metallized polyester film capacitor), Bourns USA 1% tolerance resistors, a custom made footswitch and a top PCB. 6 buttons: Volume, Gain, Presence, Treble, Mid, Bass and a Character toggle switch (H, M, L), 9VDC power supply. Come on, let's go!
First and foremost, the Titania is designed to work best on a big clean channel. So we plugged this chainsaw into a Two-Rock Traditional Clean for maximum headroom. We start with all the settings at 12:00. first thing that strikes is... the silence! The Titania is a pedal capable of delivering mammoth gain, yet it remains ultra-quiet thanks to a premium circuit design. Second thing, it sends serious! Let's describe the philosophy of this pedal a bit. One of the most interesting features is the Character switch. Indeed, this allows you to modify the amount of gain and low frequencies before attacking the main gain stage. You have 3 positions, Low - Medium - High. The higher you go, the more lows and gain you generate. This switch is particularly useful depending on the type of guitar you are going to use. The Titania being designed to work with 6, 7 and 8 string guitars, the switch will be adjusted accordingly. The biggest difficulty related to the development of the Titania was to design a pedal capable of taking on the monstrous bottom of the 8-string, while remaining upright in its boots. This is the case, the Titania is a pedal with an ultra tight, precise low end, with very articulated mids and treble that cuts through without being nasal. The awesome 3-band active EQ plus Presence control really carves out this bulldozer. The attack is ultra-fast, the response immediate and the sound signature unique. The corrections are surgical and the pedal excels in all styles that require maximum precision. Metal, Djent, Detune, everything goes without flinching.
The KarDiaN Titania Leda Signature Edition is a real ax (or rather a katana) in the world of high-gain pedals. It passes for a toy many pedals made in US (noise, breath, effectiveness of corrections, dynamics ...). If you're looking for a shred-oriented, big-sounding pedal, this is one of the best options out there.
