    Blues Overdrive Pedal

    Add a blues distortion effect to your pedal board with this Blues Overdrive Pedal from Monoprice!

    This pedal uses a FET transistor to simulate the sound of tube amplifier distortion, resulting in that dirty, overdriven tone that is perfect for the blues and hard rock. You can control both the Gain and Tone of the overdrive effect, as well as the output volume. The pedal features true bypass, so it won't alter your tone when not actively in use.

    The casing is metal for long term durability. It is powered using either a 9VDC power adapter with a negative tip/center, such as our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611690) or a 9V alkaline battery (not included).

    Signal to Noise Ratio -90dB
    Input 1/4" monaural TS jack (impedance: 500k ohms)
    Output 1/4" monaural TS jack (impedance: 150 ohms)
    Recommended Load Impedance 10k ohms
    Power Requirement AC adapter or 9V alkaline battery. 9VDC (tip/center negative plug)
    Current Draw 5.5mA
    Dimensions (WDH) 2.9" x 4.5" x 1.9" (73 x 115 x 48 mm)
    Weight (including battery) 9.5 oz. (270g)

    Really nice tone for the price but failed after a year

    Pros: Really nice tone, nice size to fit on pedalboard, attractive, affordable, and sturdy construction

    Cons: It stopped working

    Overall, the blues overdrive pedal feels well-made and I was happy with the tone. It added a nice creamy overdrive, which is perfect for blues playing. Unfortunately, mine simply stopped working after a year and a couple of months. I opened it up to see if there was anything obvious wrong with it, but it seems completely dead.

    Always on, for better or worse

    Pros: Affordable and worth the experiment
    Nice sturdy housing attractive finish

    Cons: Effect sweep didn't start as low as I'd hoped

    Compared to the red 611614 Overdrive pedal, I thought this might be a little more subtle something I could use as a clean boost at lower settings., then add drive when I wanted to get crunchy. I found that not to be the case when this pedal was on, there was no "zero" on the effect, so it was always a little bit dirty and that minimum dirt at default was more present than I wanted. (By contrast, I wound up liking the red 611614 Overdrive, which did offer the from-zero range I was hoping for.) I also found the 611611 to be a bit muddy through humbuckers, but I'm told this kind of pedal really likes single coils, so keep that in mind if you're in the market.

    Does the job!

    Pros: Does exactly what you want it to do.
    Sounds good without shaking the house down.
    Way better than the gain in my solid state amps.

    Cons: Does not quite reproduce that over-driven tube sound, but that might be the result of keeping the volume down.

    The reason I wanted an overdrive pedal was because getting good overdrive with my amp generally meant setting off the neighbors car alarm. I can take this pedal and get good overdrive sound with the amp working at TV listening volumes. Using a Fender Princeton Chorus, known for it's clean channel, I get a good bluesy, tubey sound that is absolutely satisfying. And it is cheap!

    Gets the job done

    Pros: Price, well built, rugged.

    Cons: uncontrollably overdrives my hollowbody Humbuckers, but I like it for tele, SG's and P90 LP's and Jazzmaster.

    I use on a variety of guitars and pickups, for my needs it works best with P90's on a solid body guitar. It howls and it growls just like I want it to, it does collect a lot of line noise, but many of these lower priced pedals do in fact collect or build up immense "hum" or line noise. It suits my needs and especially my budget.

    Sounds pretty good, but noisy to touch

    Pros: Has a good sound.

    Cons: Will give off a buzz upon being touched by finger/hand.

    This pedal is actually very good, but has an odd thing about it where it buzzes if I touch it. A shoe or sock touch doesn't bring out the noise, but whilst messing around with it with hands/fingers, the noise 'effect' is obvious.
