Add the classic sound of an overdriven tube amplifier to to your pedal board using this Overdrive Pedal from Monoprice!
This pedal produces a warm, natural sounding distortion effect, similar to the sound of an overdriven tube amplifier. It features gain, tone, and level controls for precise control of your tone. It also features true bypass, so it will not alter your tone when not actively in use.
The case is made of metal for long-term durability. It is powered using either a 9-volt battery or an AC adapter with a negative tip/center, such as our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611690).

PROS: Decent sound. Well built. Compact.
PROS: Low cost, solid build, sweet low gain tones.
CONS: The only con I can find (as others have stated) is it gets a bit noisy on higher gain settings. Again, not really as issue for me as the lower gain settings are excellent and that works for me!

I lost confidence in the pedal and cables and returned both, but you might have a better experience. The pedal is certainly a good value and does what it says, when it works.
PROS: Good gain and distortion
CONS: Low note roll-off, reduces richness of sound.
Incompatible with one Monoprice cable
