Parallel Overdrive (Preorder)
Build Time is expected to be 8-16 Weeks, but we will update as we know more.
It’s a Parallel Boost/Overdrive.
What does that mean? Well, it starts with a linear clean boost. This takes your guitar signal and only makes it louder without changing your tone at all. Then you bring in the Overdrive with the Blend control and decide exactly how much you want of each!
The overdrive portion is in a lot of ways our Savage Drive, but utilizes the Blend to control the tightness. This allows you to get as aggressive with the drive settings as you want and still sound great.
This pedal is our first drive that’s tailored towards more modern amps and modelers. Normally an aggressive overdrive can be too much for a tight modern amp, but one turn of a knob can give you just as much or as little as you want.
Volume: This control is active no matter what the other controls are set at. It takes your tone anywhere from 0-40db (with the Drive section brought in completely, more on that soon).
Blend: This gives you the ability to go from 100% Boost pedal to 100% Overdrive pedal and anywhere in between. Using this, you can crank controls like the Dirt and make it as nasty as you like without totally ruining your clarity. Bonus Feature: with the Blend all the way down it can be used as a solo boost in your Effects loop.
Dirt: This adds some distortion to your signal. We've gone with our favorite clipping options to keep the gain staging crisp and crunchy. You wont hear any of it with the Blend control at minimum, so turn them both up a bit before you start tweaking.
Mids: This brings in more of where your guitar lives, the Mids! Lower settings will keep things smooth and liquidy, while higher settings will add a grind, snarl and bite unlike any other. This control is also "bypassed" with the Blend control at minimum, so don't be alarmed if you don't always hear it. This is one of those things that can be absolutely incredible if blended in parallel with your existing tone.
Power: The Parallel Overdrive features an onboard bi-polar power supply, so it requires 9volts ONLY!!! Higher voltage will only damage it.
