    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)

    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.

    Great Pedal For The Price!

    Pros: Excellent price
    Solid construction
    nice color

    Cons: LED could be a little brighter

    I bought this as a X-mas present for myself. The price was great. I got the pedal in about 3 days after ordering it. The construction is solid and the sound is really good considering how inexpensive it is. I just wish I had purchased a a/c adapter along with it. Went through four 9 volt batteries before I finally bought one.

    Works, but quality control seems to be lacking

    Pros: Relatively high build quality for the price (knobs are plastic and pull off easily, however)
    Pedal sounds pretty good

    Cons: The paint on the aluminum scratches easily
    Quality Control seems to be an issues

    Out of the box, I was impressed with the Blues Overdrive pedal. It seemed to be much higher quality than I would have initially thought for being a cheap pedal. It even came with a battery!

    That being said, my expectations were quickly cut off. I hooked up the pedal, and immediately noticed that the LED light wasn't coming on. The pedal still passed a signal though, so I decided to play with it a bit. Turns out the pedal works just fine, but the LED light that indicates the pedal is functioning does not. This became particularly annoying as I was trying to dial it in, because it was difficult to tell if the pedal was even on for some of the settings.

    Being the man that I am, I decided to open it up and take a look to see if I could find anything wrong. The pedal is easy to open up, but the paint is even easier to scratch. Once I had the cover off, the LED light started working without issue. So I put the cover back on, and the LED light went out again. So I loosened the screw in the upper left corner of the pedal a bit, and the LED turned on. Then I tightened it down again, and the LED turned off. So I loosened it again. A fairly easy modification (and the screw isn't loose enough to cause a whole lot of concern), but between this and a less-than-stellar experience with the Monoprice Chromatic Tuner Pedal... I'm thinking it might be better to spend a little extra and get something tried-and-true.
