**Same trusted circuit in a Star Wars themed enclosure
This overdrive pedal is inspired by the simplicity of the EM Drive. It is a low parts, simply designed circuit made with the best hand selected parts that I can get, giving it impeccable tone and clarity even on the grittiest settings. Because of its clarity, it stacks incredibly well with other drives and has beautiful picking dynamics.
It's made with: carbon comp resistors, Russian paper in oil capacitors, ceramic axial tone capacitor, and both a germanium 1N34a and European 1418 diode. There are controls for volume, drive, tone and a toggle that engages the clipping diodes. Use it as a boost or a tone shaping pedal when the clipping diodes are bypassed. When the didoes are engaged it brings out a clear, rich, and harmonic overdrive.
Wired true bypass and is powered by a negative tip (boss-style) power adaptor. It can be run at 9-18v.
Tone aficionados kept telling EHX’s Mike Matthews about a pedal that had achieved a lot...
