SALE! BlackBox Overdrive 2

BlackBox Overdrive 2 - Piano Black



The External Switch Mod allows all the internal switch functions to be switched from the outside without opening the pedal to access the DIP switches. Recommended if you're not a one-guitar or one-amp player, or if you like to tweak settings on the fly for tuning to a room or recording.

A hand-wired, 100% discrete analog, natural tube-emulating overdrive, clean boost, and tone enhancement tool with a proprietary, completely transparent tube-emulating variable and switchable JFET pre-gain clean boost control to push your BlackBox into high gear, or to squeeze more volume or fatness out of the front end.

Features three switchable circuit modes - Standard (Hi-Gain), Classic (Lo-Gain), and Clean Boost.

External Gain, Tone, Volume, Presence, and pre-gain Boost knobs, plus internal Bright/Smooth Voicing and Mode switches - highly interactive controls that tap your signal in just the right places for a HUGE spectrum of both clean and overdrive tones out of just one box. 

Extremely dynamic and vocal, with just a hair of compression and that amp-on-the-edge feel in Overdrive Modes - play softly or lower your guitar's volume, and your signal cleans up well; dig in and that hot tube growl will sing. Just a touch of mids to help cut through the mix without destroying your tone, and enough flexibility and transparency to enhance almost any setup, never detracting from the nuance and feel of the rest of your rig. 


Like to keep it simple? The BlackBox Overdrive 2 can be switched to Classic Mode to convert the entire circuit into that of the simple 3-knob BlackBox Overdrive Classic, but with way more output volume, plus the option to utilize (or not utilize) a Bright/Smooth switch and Presence control. New for 2017 - not available in 2016 models.
