"Great cheap overdrive!"

This is a pretty awesome overdrive considering the price. There are the simple 1/4" input and ouputs as well as the input for a power supply. This is an analog overdrive pedal. This cannot be edited with a computer nor controlled by MIDI. It is not rackable, it is a foot pedal.


The effects editing on this pedal is pretty straightforward. There are three knobs, level, drive, and tone. These knobs are pretty self explanatory. There is no need for a manual, though I didn't buy it with one so I can't say for sure.


I like using this with a Strat or Tele. It doesn't really do a Les Paul much justice although it's still good with one. The amp of choice is my favorite, the Fender Twin, and it also works well when used in conjunction with the dirty channel on most Marshalls. With the Twin and Strat (or even the tele), it's almost an alternative to cranking the amp. While I would still do that anyway, I would kick in the pedal and get a great rock sound that has a ton of bite but not too much fuzz. Think SRV or some nasty garage rock and you're in the ballpark. With the Marshall, it sounds good with the clean tone, giving it some dirt that is usually not there. When used with the dirty channel it can be a good boost to whatever sound you are looking for, usually for me I kick up the high end and really get soaring lead tones that sound fantastic. It also is a true bypass pedal, which is great if you don't like messing with your tone.


I can't say many negative things about this pedal, it's cheap and it does the trick. It's certainly not my favorite overdrive, but I'd say it competes respectably with most of them, and at half the price I'd say it's a real winner. Anyone looking for a good overdrive for a relatively low price would do well to check this out.
