Your new secret weapon for small-amp tones!
It's an open secret that some of the greatest guitar tones of all time were recorded using surprisingly small amps.
Recording engineers long ago discovered that small amps like the famous Tweed Fender Champ are dynamite in the studio.
In front of a microphone, the low-end roll-off and focused mids you get from a smaller speaker become a distinct advantage.
This characteristic frequency response makes for killer guitar tones that sit brilliantly in the mix, sounding anything but small!
It’s a technique that’s been used on countless recordings, by the likes of Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, Billy Gibbons and Mike Campbell.
The Small Speaker Overdrive is not an amp-in-a-box emulation of one particular amp.
Instead, this unique circuit captures some of the most desirable characteristics associated with small-speaker, vintage tube combos.
You get the same punchy, upper-mid focus, earthy breakup and super sensitive, expressive playing dynamics.
The pedal features standard Gain and Level knobs, plus a pair of unconventional EQ controls; a High boost / cut and a Low boost.
The Small Speaker Overdrive's controls are designed to be useful across their entire range, so experimentation is actively encouraged!
