  5. One of my absolute favorite overdrive pedals has been the tried-and-true Boss BD-2 Blues Driver. Its dimensional crunch contains all the warmth of a tube amp bursting into overdrive but with a top-end clarity that sets it apart from Boss’s other popular pedals, such as the DS-1 Distortion and SD-1 Super Overdrive. Indeed, I’ve always found that Boss injects a sonic signature for their gain pedals that falls somewhere between analog and digital but with all the desired harmonic overtones that make them sound inherently unique. Considering there are hundreds of boutique pedal companies that build Tube Screamer replicas and Klon clones, very few have ever emulated a Boss overdrive or distortion pedal. Not to say this is a good or bad thing, but Boss has always been fi ne in their “gainful” space. So, in what might seem an unprecedented move, Boss partnered with the boutique pedal company, JHS Pedals, to create the Boss JB-2 Angry Driver. The result is an extraordinary new pedal that combines the overdrive circuits of the Boss Blues Driver and the favored JHS Pedals Angry Charlie, making it one incredibly versatile dual-mode pedal. What’s even more remarkable, aside from its two very distinct crunch circuits, is the added operation to use each one independently, or combine and stack them for a plethora of overdriven colors. FEATURES The JB-2 is housed in Boss’s familiar compact pedal chassis, but what’s instantly striking is the pedal’s red control knobs, a colorful addition not found on any other Boss pedal. The pedal features three dual-concentric controls for level, tone and drive. The tops of the knobs govern the JHS circuit, while the bottom halves control the Boss section, allowing for independent settings for its separate overdrives. A six-position mode knob selects the overdrive and configurations (JHS, Boss, JHS/Boss, J>B, B>J and Parallel). Here you can run each pedal separately (JHS or Boss), or toggle between the two (JHS/Boss), or route the order of them in series mode (J>B or B>J) or run the pedal in parallel mode. The JB-2 also features an LED indicator that shows which effect is active (blue for Boss, red for JHS and purple when both circuits are activated). Apart from the 1/4-inch input and output jacks, there’s also a remote 1/4-inch input jack that allows you to connect an optional footswitch to select between two types of overdrive, or turn them on/off individually. A 9-volt battery or 9V adapter powers the JB-2. PERFORMANCE I must be up front and admit that I own at least eight Boss Blues Drivers (I have a problem), so as expected, the Angry Driver makes me feel right at home with its included circuit. All the tone of the Blues Driver is intact here—the low-to-mid grind of its drive sound, a full bass response and a brilliant top-end sheen. On the flip side, the Angry Charlie has a more assertive voice, with a huge midrange bump and tube-like touch sensitivity in its medium-gain drive. It’s definitely a more boutique overdrive sound many players gravitate toward. Depending upon how you set the drive on its individual circuits, both series modes offer plenty of molten distortion sounds and fully cranked lead tones with cutting mids. Because you’re stacking circuits, it’s a beautifully unbridled tone that also works well for coaxing glorious feedback. Parallel is a great set-and-forget mode where I was able to dial in an arena rock distortion that sounded big and ultra-smooth. However, I found the best way to use the Angry Driver is to set the mode switch to toggle between the JHS/Boss circuits. Setting the gain low on the JHS works well for clean and rhythm tones, and pushing the drive around two o’clock on the Boss circuit is ideal for soloing. STREET PRICE: $199.99 MANUFACTURER: Boss, Boss.info ● The JB-2’s three dual-concentric knobs provide independent drive, tone and level control for each overdrive type. ● The six-position mode selector allows each overdrive to operate independently, or combine them together in series and parallel configurations. THE BOTTOM LINE The Boss JB-2 Angry Driver combines two signature overdrives; the Boss Blues Driver and JHS Pedals Angry Charlie, into one versatile pedal capable of touch-sensitive gain and smooth distortion. FARA CUTIE!
  6. The GRID SLAMMER™ overdrive pedal produces a variable boost in gain over a wide range with a classic, guitar-centric midrange bump that enhances many different playing styles. It’s a true overdrive “specialist” that covers an amazing array of what many top players consider the most expressive and musical ranges of overdrive. From sweet, subtle breakup to a harmonically smoldering overdrive that can both sting and sing, the GRID SLAMMER sets a new bar in legendary overdrive! PRODUCT FEATURES: Designed and Handcrafted in Petaluma, California, USA True Bypass On/Off Switching - Bypasses all circuitry when off to ensure no tonal loss Gain Control allows you to dial in the perfect amount of vintage breakup or classic overdrive Master Level Control provides a variable range of signal boost up to +20dB Tone Control balances the amount of high frequencies On/Off Status LED 9V Battery Powered or Externally Powered (optional) via External Power Jack Input Input & Output Jacks (Nominal Input -20dB) SPECIFICATIONS: Dimensions (W/D/H): 2.87" x 4.77" x 2.28" (73mm x 122mm x 58mm) Weight: 0.731 lbs.

  7. Snake Oil Fine Instruments are purveyors of only the purest, homegrown tonal tweaking tools on the market. Fresh from the creative minds at Chapman Guitars, these rather luxurious bits of kit are made in the UK to the finest specifications. This particular specimen, The Marvellous Engine, is a distortion pedal that's both sophisticated and full of attitude, both charming and terrifying - in equal measure. Simple Controls The Marvellous Engine is inspired by the old guard of British valve amps. Distinctly pronounced in the midrange with plenty of top-end bite, it has the capacity to tip into high-gain sounds when it calls for it. Although it sounds great out of the box, a simple set of controls provide you with everthing you need to harness its power. Tweak the gain to adjust the level of 'push' - give your amp a kick or set those valves ablaze. The distortion control takes you from subtle '60s overdrive to modern plexi-style chunkiness, while the tone control allows you to shape your tone with an intuitive EQ range. Volume does exactly what you think it does. Pristine UK-built design Snake Oil pedals are designed and built in the UK. Built to withstand the toughest of gigging schedules, they also look the part. An embossed metal enclosure and design would look just as good in a trophy cabinet as it would on your battle-scarred pedalboard. Here's what Chapman & Snake Oil have to say: Snake Oil is proud to present the miraculous and majestic Marvellous Engine! This superb distortion pedal is the choice of the respected musician, offering a joyous richness of tone unparalleled by any other inferior brand. Inspired by classic, higher gain British amps, this stunning device is at home in front of the clean or driven amp of your choice. It may also be desirable to know that secretly stowed away in case you should require it, the "Voice" control gives access to get a second clipping stage. With Gain, Level, Tone and Voice at your disposal you will dramatically dominate the competition in just a few swift manipulations of your Marvellous Engine. Made in England to exacting specifications, you can rest assured that your Marvellous Engine from Snake Oil Fine Instruments will never let you down. Specifications Analogue distortion pedal Gain, Volume, Voice and Tone controls Powered by 9V battery or 9V DC power supply (not included) Dimensions 110mm (L) x 54mm (W) x 50mm (H) Weight 350g Made in the UK
  8. TUMNUS DELUXE With the >Tumnus Deluxe, Brian has set a new standard. Thanks in large part to the design’s articulate-sounding buffer, all of the clarity, punch, and detailed breakup of the original Tumnus are still there. But if you prefer the sound of true bypass performance, just hit the switch on the side of the pedal for uncolored tonal purity. Brian also injected the Tumnus Deluxe with a level of tonal flexibility not previously available on this style of drive. Active bass and mid controls, as well as a regular treble control (the same as the pedal it was inspired by), encourages you to sculpt the tone from this pedal to the demands of your rig. Whether you’re boosting a driven amp or another pedal, using the pedal as a stand-alone overdrive, or crowning it your “always on” tonal sweetener, you’ll find the Tumnus Deluxe’s wide-ranging controls make it much more than just another clone. The Tumnus Deluxe delivers all the string-to-string clarity, high-headroom output, and amp-like breakup that made this style of overdrive pedal so iconic. But its 3-band EQ will enhance your tone with warm low end, instantly identifiable midrange, and just the right amount of top-end sparkle. Unlike some other similarly voiced pedals, the Tumnus Deluxe has enough tonal control to perfect your sound through any rig. The buffer inside the Tumnus Deluxe sounds so good, you might just find it enhances your tone whether the pedal is on or off. But Wampler knows that some players prefer the clean signal path of true bypass operation. With the Tumnus Deluxe’s side-mounted buffered/true bypass control, attaining that uncolored sound is as easy as flipping a switch. FARA CUTIE!
  9. Speaker Cranker™ Overdrive The Speaker Cranker™ is a discrete, all-analog distortion enhancement device (i.e., not a booster), designed to give your signal some extra grit and a slight boost without drastically altering your tone. Think of it as sticking an extra preamp tube in your amplifier for more overdrive. Single notes will blossom and bloom with rich harmonics and responsive, tube-like sag. Power chords will sound thicker and crunchier, a little more ragged around the edges. Complex chords will remain distinct and complex, as the Speaker Cranker is designed to preserve your tone’s integrity without muddying up the low-end, or “rounding out” the mids, or adding any top-end “shimmer,” or “sparkle,” or any of that other garbage. It’s your tone. Cranked. Ya got that? Repeat after me: “The Speaker Cranker is an overdrive, not a boost.” FARA CUTIE!
  10. Jonassus drive is a dual-channel overdrive pedal offering a sweet, warm, and articulate low-gain overdrive (“Low Channel”) plus a thick and ballsy medium-high gain overdrive (“High Channel”) . Each channel has its own Volume and Gain control, a shared Tone control, and an independent set of clipping mode options : Diode / Asymmetric - more compression and bites. Diode / Symmetric - less compression, smooth, balanced. LED / Symmetric - wide opened, warm. A multicolor LED identifies which clipping option is selected. Left footswitch : bypasses/engages the pedal Right footswitch : selects which Volume/Gain/Clipping (V.G.C) control set is activated, the left-side or the right-side. The left-side and right-side V.G.C controls are not permanently mapped to any channel. The DIP switch (at the back of the pedal) setting gives you three different ways of mapping the V.G.C control to the low-gain and the high-gain channel. The range of gain available on both the low channel and the high channel is fairly wide, this adds an extra dimension for exploring the drive textures, e.g. you can easily get very usable crunch tones by dialing down the gain control in the high channel, and likewise you can coax some heaviness by cranking up the gain control in the low channel. Despite the overlaps of the gain range, the two channels are tonally distinct and unique. Now combine that with the triple clipping mode selection and you get exceptionally wide ranging overdrive tones available on tap, and the dual channel / dual footswitch arrangement makes for fast and easy access of those tones.
  11. Architect V3 Overdrive/Boost Pedal The Architect V3 is Rick Matthews’ unique take on the legendary klon circuit, which has formed the tone of countless guitar players. Matthews Effects is the first company to take this legendary design to new heights by building in an active three band EQ which sculpts the tone of the overdrive. The option to select from three distinct clipping modes allows you to perfectly pair this pedal with any guitar/amp combination. The boost channel offers two independent circuits to choose from, giving you vast control of your tonal blueprints. With the Architect V3 you can create layered, clean boosts, to dynamically push your amp with powerful EQ dialing, or crank up the gain and shake the very earth. There is always more to discover and build on with the Architect V3. Specifications Active 3 Band EQ – The EQ in the Architect V3 provides active control over the Treble, Mids and Lows. Actively boost or cut these frequencies to dynamically shape your guitar’s tone. Gain Control – The unique control delivers a lot more than a traditional Gain knob. Set to the lower setting (left), your signal is routed via a boost circuit. As you turn the “Gain” up, it gradually engages a secondary gain channel which is being mixed in. A wide variety of tones are at your disposal using this layered Gain feature.. Independent Boost – The new Architect V3 offers an independent true bypass boost control and footswitch. Use the slide switch on the side of the pedal to select between a Silicon or Mosfet circuit to form the foundation of your tone. CONTROL SUMMARY: Output – Volume of the overdrive Gain – Controls amount of gain Bass – Boost or cut the bass freq. Mid – Boost or cut the mid freq. Treble – Boost or cut the treble freq. Boost – Volume of the boost THREE CLIPPING MODES The slide switch on the side of the pedal lets you select from three distinct clipping modes, each with a different color of gain. This allows you pair the Architect V3 with any guitar and amp combination. Silicon – Very tight and crunchy Diode Lift – Slight natural clipping great for pushing a dirty amp Germanium – Compressed and tight EXTERNAL BYPASS JACK This input allows you to control the Boost and Bypass switch remotely using a TRS cable. Tip controls the Boost bypass switch and Ring controls the Drives bypass switch. BUILT IN USA QUALITY CONSTRUCTION Rick Matthews obsesses over every last detail to make the highest quality and intuitive pedals available. This commitment to excellence is on full display with the Architect V3. With its rugged build, iconic overdrive tone and boost circuits options, you can construct your entire tone around The Architect V3. High-grade components selected for their superior sound and response Top-mounted jacks make pedal board placement effortless Overdrive & boost in a single compact pedal Soft-touch footswitch designed to years of abuse Fully active three-band EQ Three clipping options Two boost options External bypass control for both the overdrive and boost circuits. TRS cable required. FARA Cutie!
  12. The ZenMan is one of those unique boxes meant to complement a good amp, rather than smother it in distortion. The pedal’s layout is simple: Tone, Boost, Gain, and Level, along with a heavy-duty Boost footswitch and a Bypass switch. In this case, the latter is another name for “overdrive on/off,” as it activates the pedal; in this mode, the ZenMan’s desired settings are dialed in. The Tone knob is pleasantly nuanced – not shrill or harsh, as is the case with some pedals. The Vintage/Phat switch is another cool feature, providing some beef in Phat mode while easing off the middle for a more natural, old-school sound in Vintage mode. As if that’s not enough, the ZenMan’s gain can be dialed down and the Boost used as a clean-booster for solos. Jamming on a ’63 Fender Jaguar through a classic 1×12 tube combo, the ZenMan performed superbly, allowing the Jag’s natural voice to shine through. To play the blues all night long with just a bit of tube-amp bite, set the ZenMan for light gain. Turn up the gain to reach into Keith Richards territory and keep going for some deep Bad Company riffery. Turning the mini switch to Phat gives a more contemporary sound with some nice low-end chunks. In fact, the ZenMan delivers impressive bottom in this mode – suddenly the 1×12 cabinet had the beef of a 2×12 and, at times, even a half-stack. Add in the Boost feature and the sky’s the limit, with the clean booster settings providing killer country or blues workouts without the dirt. Step on the Bypass switch and you’re back to your amp’s unfiltered tone. Used as a go-to box for soloing, the ZenMan could be quite deadly with the amp set for a decent overdrive sound and the pedal set up as a solo boost – it’s easy to imagine tone going through the roof. Cool pedal, indeed.
  13. JAM pedals’ unabashed distortion monster. We pulled out all the stops to make sure the Rattler will get you all the amazing tones of great early 80s ProCo RAT® distortion boxes and put in the time and R&D to make it more responsive to picking and fretting nuances resulting in an open, dynamic, overdriven tube-amp feel! Its asymmetrical clipping circuit, carbon comp resistors and of course the legendary NOS LM308N chip, the featured star of this design, are the main ingredients of a great recipe resulting in the Rattler shining through any rig, whether modern or vintage. Enjoy fat and creamy distortion courtesy of the devious snake!
