Tube Overdrive Mini Pedal
Add overdrive to your pedal board with this Tube Overdrive Mini Pedal from Monoprice!
This mini pedal produces a simulated tube response for a warm, vintage sound. At low drive settings, it generates a vacuum tube-like overdrive effect, while at high drive settings it generates a screamer clipping-fuzz effect. 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 a 9VDC power adapter with a negative tip/center, such as our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611690). Note that the manual erroenously lists the DC connector size as 3.5/1.1mm. The connector is actually 5.5/2.1mm, which is the same as that of the 611690 power supply. The manual will be updated and posted here as soon as possible.

Questions and Answers
Yes and no ! The easy way is get the 9vac adapter. There is a rare 9v dc adapter out there but hard to find and there is no 9v battery compartment in unit. Good hunting.
CONS: Not completely metal, but at this price I'm not sure you can really complain about that.
PROS: Warm, creamy overdirve with lots of articulation. Tone adjustments are a great touch, and level adjustment allows for use as a rhythm effect, or turn up the level for a solo boost pedal.
CONS: That Monoprice didn't make this thing available earlier.
Sounds amazing. Nice distortion when you want it, and the guitar screams when you want it to. I have to be careful when I mess around with it, because I invariably end up spending way too much time playing.
Haven't noticed the noise that others have talked about, it's fairly quiet to me.
Do other pedals sound better? Maybe. But the ones that sound slightly better probably aren't $30. Skip a hamburger out and a couple of beers with it, and buy this pedal. It's a no-brainer.
