SKY BLUE OVERDRIVE - Hand-made in Finland premium quality overdrive pedal that is a cut above the rest.



"Handcrafted in Finland, the Mad Professor MAD-HW-SBOD Guitar Distortion Effects Pedal is exactly what its name suggests. This is an distortion pedal that is a cut above the rest. Harmonically rich in terms of tones produced and manually wired to perfection, this is a pedal that you will want to invest in if you want light overdrive and soft distortion with clean sounds. It wouldn’t be wrong to categorize the pedal as one that is a ‘top of the line’ product. Featuring a unique ‘Z’ knob, the Sky Blue Overdrive pedal would enable you to hear your guitar in a whole new way, one that you never heard before!

So what is my final opinion on the MAD-HW-SBOD? Well, I would definitely say that this one is a keeper. Personally, I have found it to be exceptionally functional and it does its job very well. The sound quality of the device is simply outstanding and on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give this pedal 11 if that is possible!"

Mad Professor Sky Blue Overdrive (SBOD) is a very unique four knob pedal designed to overdrive already distorted amplifiers as well as provide light overdrive or soft distortion on clean sounds. Special feature on this pedal is that you can adjust the feel and dynamics with Texture and Z knobs.

 

The Texture allows changing how and when circuit distorts as well as adjusting overall EQ. The Z is a control that creates an adjustable load to the instrument connected to the SBOD input. With standard passive pickup loaded guitars dialing this control will adjust the upper resonant peak of the pickups. It also affects the taper of the volume control on the guitar, adjusting how the tone cleans up when using the guitar volume knob.

 

Like all Hand Wired MP pedals, SBOD is hand made in Finland using only premium components, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.

 



CONTROLS VOLUME: Sets the output volume of the effect DISTORT: controls the distortion or overdrive effect Z: is a control that creates an adjustable load to the instrument connected to the SBOD input. With standard guitars dialing this control will adjust the upper resonant peak of the pickups and also affect the taper of the volume control on the guitar for easy setting of clean to distorted just from the volume control of guitar. This effect is masked if SBOD is driven by a buffered output such as from another guitar pedal or from active pickups TEXTURE: allows changing how and when the circuit distorts as well as adjusting overall EQ. Dialing this control appears to adjust midrange, while it gives this impression from adjusting compression. Turning CCW gives the more saturated effect that is easily distorted, turning CW gives a slight treble boost and less compression. (compression is used here to describe density of distortion since overall sound may be distorted throughout the dial) ELECTRICAL SPESIFICATIONS Supply voltage range: 7,5 to 18VDC Current consumption: 5 mA at 9VDC Input impedance: 227K TO 10kOhm’s (adjustable with the Z-control) Output impedance: 251K Ohm’s Complete bypass (true bypass) EAN: 643003309 014 5
