Overdrive & Distortion

1995 Lovetone Brown Source Overdrive

A classic overdrive pedal, without the fuzz of many modern overdrives. This one very uniquely the first ever: Serial #0001. As Lovetone put it, "an instant flash-back to that dynamic, singing, BIG late 60's / early 70's brown sound that is associated with countless classic records spanning the whole musical spectrum . . . will make any new guitar sound 30 years older!" Best experienced through an amp that's already cooking! One of a trio of Lovetones owned by Henry Olsen, bass guitarist with Primal Scream.

Loved by: Johnny Marr, Kirk Hammett, Henry Olsen - and many more.

2008 Analog.Man King Of Tone Overdrive

Such is the demand, and such is the Analog.Man commitment to quality hand-built production, you'll be on a 2-year waiting list for one of these beauties. A brilliantly designed overdrive that takes an amp at reasonable settings, and makes it sound like it would sound if it were naturally driven to pure, smooth, tube distortion. Actually two overdrive pedals in one box, each with separate controls, and internal DIP switches to vary the level of Clean, Overdrive & Distortion output. Modern-day classic!

Loved by: John Mayer, Wayne Sermon, Noel Gallagher, and many more.

Legendary Limited Edition Overdrive

1983 Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer

Not the reissue. This one's the original. Ibanez produced their fabled "9" series for a relatively short run, from 1982 -1985. This is one of those, and comes loaded with the original (and venerated) JRC4558D chip. Famous for its "mid-hump" boost" to midrange frequencies. And today, one of the most successful, replicated and "modded" pedals in history, A solid gold (or green) classic overdrive.

Loved by: The Edge, Noel Gallagher, Billie Joe Armstrong, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore, John Squire, Carlos Santana . . . enough said!

1996 ProCo RAT 2 Overdrive/Distortion

The overdrive of choice throughout the 80s & 90s, this one from the final year of the legendary LM308 chip, the one everyone raves about. Built to withstand a nuclear apocalypse. Huge range of overdrive, distortion and fuzz, with crystal clear dynamic response. Absolute classic!

Loved by: Kurt Cobain, Noel Gallagher, Dave Grohl, Dave Gilmour, James Hetfield, Alex Turner . . . ad infinitum.

2015 Crowther Audio Hot Cake Overdrive

Paul Crowther first produced the Hot Cake when he was with Split Enz in the 1970s. He knew what he wanted, couldn't find it, so made it himself. And only a couple of new releases since then, he's stayed true to the basic formula - a great fat overdrive that retains the underlying tonality of the guitar without resorting to fuzz. So good, I've got two. One for me, one for you.

Loved by: Thom Yorke, Ed O'Brien, Noel Gallagher, Steve Cradock, Hugh Harris, Neil Finn, to name just a few.

2017 Vick Audio 73 Ram's Head "Big Muff" Overdrive

The Electro-Harmonix Big Muff is the stuff of legends, so much so that it's had more replicas and tributes than guitarists that have used it (well, probably). This is one of the very finest of those replicas, based on the 1973 - 77 Big Muff, also known as the Ram's Head. Staggering sustain. The perfect pedal for pretty much any solo by David Gilmour since the 1970s.

Loved by: Big Muff fans everywhere, and anyone that wants their guitar to sing, and keep singing.
