There are tons of great sounding boutique overdrives out there, but they’re usually in the high end of boutique price range too. The more affordable ones are typically feature starved and not very versatile. Like most guitar players, I wanted it all; versatility, affordability, and killer tone. On top of all that, was it too much to ask for high build quality, low noise, true bypass, and hand made here in the USA?
Introducing Odie, the best boutique overdrive pedal with all the boutique features except the high price. Odie uses only the best quality components, and features a mechanical true bypass switch, Switchcraft jacks, and mil-spec teflon insulated wires. The PCB and control layout are designed make the pedal rugged as well as easy to use. (How rugged you ask? Check this out.) All components are rated at voltages of at least 18 volts so you can run Odie using an 18 volt power supply for added headroom.
How does it sound? Check out one (or more) of the demos below.
