Masamune is a legendary Japanese swordsmith of the Kamakura period (1185–1333). He produced
some of the finest blades known to man. The name Masamune is synonymous with quality, so here
at NUX, we forged a design of combined circuits, compression, dry signal, 2 gain stage of
FET boost, routing...
ENTER the NUX MASAMUNE a pedal that offers huge razor-sharp dynamic sound, the quality on the
level of a Japanese Katana, and not just any katana, it's MASAMUNE!

NUX Masamune is a sound-crafter pedal
It forges your dry-signal, enhancing your sound before sending your signal to your amp, and/or
any effects unit. The Booster adds beneficial color to your signal, and, if necessary, after you
adjust the boost & drive levels, you can cut high frequencies on your Input signal with the Hi-Cut
Masamune’s Kompressor does a remarkable job managing and enhancing your signal: Komp Level knob
adjusts the final Output level for the Compressor, perfectly balancing your Input and Output signals.
Sustain knob adjusts the compression ratio, and increases sustain. Higher sustain levels will squash
your signal harder when you hit the strings and creates a longer, richer sustain. Blend knob adjusts
the compressor transparency from 50% to 100%, so you can dial-in the exact amount of compressed
dry-signal blend you want.
Clip Toggle allows you to choose the clipping range of your Input signal. The Toggle-UP position will
squeeze the signal for voluminous sound, and Toggle-DOWN will open up more space on your clipping range.
NUX Masamune Booster & Kompressor has inside routing with 3 Functions:
-Use both effects in parallel connection.
-Toggle-UP the MUTEX to engage only one effect at a time
-Choose which effect you want to come first on your signal chain.
