Rocking OverdriveOne 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. Very well built pedal.

Very Transparent ODThis 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 it's on or off - then dial in the gain you want - this pedal can do it. True Bypass and high headroom. I like the Modified setting for it's flat frequency response.

Incredibly solidI'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. It's true bypass, so it won't affect your tone, plus with the EQ settings down low, you're able to get a quiet, driving sound without having to compromise your high gain and effect level. I'd highly recommend this from my great experience with this. If this were stolen, I'd definitely buy another one.
