Touch-sensitive gain with a strong, aggressive, cranked-amp voice

The Skreddy Pedals™ Major Overdrive cleans up well with the guitar volume and has a massive voice like a huge early 70's British tube amplifier.

Has a "brown sound" flavor, kinda like a tube amp that has a variac on the power supply to reduce the voltage slightly.  The tone is clear, focused, and balanced with a beefy low-mid and a buttery high end.  The attack is punchy and cutting, with just enough compression to be chewy and in the pocket.

Thick slabs of rock'n'roll goodness!

Skreddy Pedals Major Overdrive KICKS ASS!!! Thanks Marc Ahlfs !

(Marc:) "It wasn't till the final tweak I made to this circuit that I discovered just how on the nose it covers Van Halen's first album tone."

Barry: "you know, I've heard of that guy. But it does WAY more - great volume clean up, nice touch. It sounds great at many different levels of gain. Just love it!


you just have the greatest dirt sense Marc - chewy and yummy. Now I can leave my 74 Mark II in the basement ;^} "
