Tasty Tube Overdrive and True Bypass!The HardWire CM-2 Tube Overdrive guitar pedal gives you incredibly rich tube tone when you engage it - and completely true signal bypass when it's off. The pros choose pedals with true bypass because it's the only way you're going to keep your tone exactly the way you want it between your guitar and amp. The CM-2 also features high-voltage operation for improved headroom over "conventional" pedals, plus a 2-position Classic/Modified voicing switch and Level, Gain, Low, and High tone controls. Great tone is yours with the CM-2!
Serious musicians are highly selective in their guitar and amp choices. After all, it's the foundation of their tone. Adding effects to their signal chain is done judiciously. And when they turn off an effects pedal, they need to know it's not creating undesirable noise or coloring the unique character of their tone. In a true bypass pedal, the signal passes straight through the box when the effect is bypassed. When it's on it's on. When it's off it's off. All HardWire pedals feature true bypass.
With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal - normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate special circuitry that increases the operating voltage "headroom" above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals are compatible with a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.

by Matt from PhilaOne of the best overdrive pedals (and there are a lot) on the market. Classic mode goes from Tom Petty type crunch to that ACDC rock sound. Modern will drive your amp even harder into the metal zone. ... read more [+]Very well built pedal. close [-]

Very Transparent OD
by Dan Hines from Moline, ILThis is by far my favorite OD pedal and I have tried a bunch. For me, the perfect OD is the ability to dial back the gain and set up the pedal to leave your guitar/amp tone unaffected, can't tell if i... read more [+]t's on or off - then dial in the gain you want - this pedal can do it.

Music Background: Been playing almost 40 years...
by Liam from Brisbane, AustraliaI've been looking for a good overdrive that can be used heavy and semi-clean. The versatility of this pedal blew me away; personally, I'd rank it with the MXR GT-OD Overdrive for quality.

I'd highly recommend this from my great experience with this. If this were stolen, I'd definitely buy another one. close [-]
