Description

The MXR M294 Sugar Drive is in New condition and made by MXR , it is a great Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal – The ultimate clone. The MXR Sugar Drive creates a clear transparent drive with increased headroom for a dynamic wide open sound. The MXR Sugar Drive is a compact pedal based on the Centaurs rare and elusive circuit providing the musician with a diverse amount of transparent overdrive tones. It has the ability to maintain your guitars personality by blending in the overdrive with the clean signal the more you crank it. The circuit also features a voltage doubler which is how the additional headroom is generated for a truly transparent drive. . Available from Just Pedals for only £ 129 The secret to transparency Recreating a classic isnt easy upgrading it is even tougher. While the original sported a buffered bypass modern users often want an uncoloured signal when the pedal isnt engaged- the Sugar Drive offers both! Simply flick the Buffer switch to suit your preference. The reason this circuit has earned such reverence over the years is thanks to a couple of intelligent design features. The inclusion of the voltage doubler is simple but provides a huge lift to your sound with massively increased headroom perfect for a more articulate dynamic response. Coupled with the smooth transition as you turn the overdrive up and the ratio between clean signal and overdriven signal becomes smaller (very similar to turning an amp up and hearing it gradually break up more) and the transparent label becomes clear. Features Based on a rare & elusive overdrive circuit Increased headroom for dynamic wide open sound Boosts Rich Overdrive Includes ECB003 9V Adapter True bypass

  • Guitar Effect Pedal

  • Overdrive
  • An overdrive pedal is a type of guitar effects pedal that simulates the sound of a vintage tube amplifier pushed into overdrive or distortion. It adds warmth, richness, and harmonic complexity to the guitar signal, creating a smooth, saturated tone that ranges from mild grit to full-on distortion. Here’s how overdrive pedals work and some common features:

    1. **Gain**: The gain control adjusts the amount of overdrive or distortion applied to the guitar signal. Turning up the gain increases the intensity of the overdrive, while lowering it produces a cleaner, more transparent sound.

    2. **Level**: The level control adjusts the output volume of the pedal. This allows you to match the volume level of the overdriven signal with your clean signal or boost the overall volume for solos or lead lines.

    3. **Tone**: The tone control (sometimes labeled as “tone” or “EQ”) adjusts the frequency response of the overdriven signal. Turning it clockwise boosts the highs and cuts the lows, resulting in a brighter tone. Turning it counterclockwise boosts the lows and cuts the highs, producing a darker tone.

    4. **Drive (or Distortion)**: Some overdrive pedals feature a separate drive control, which determines the intensity of the overdrive effect independently of the gain control. This allows for more fine-tuned control over the amount of saturation and distortion in the tone.

    5. **True Bypass vs. Buffered Bypass**: Overdrive pedals may have either true bypass or buffered bypass circuits. True bypass preserves the guitar’s original tone when the pedal is turned off, while buffered bypass maintains signal integrity and prevents signal loss when the pedal is engaged.

    6. **Voicing Options**: Some overdrive pedals offer voicing options or switchable modes that allow you to tailor the character of the overdrive to suit your playing style or musical genre. This may include options for different clipping diodes, EQ curves, or saturation levels.

    7. **Stacking**: Overdrive pedals are often used in combination with other effects pedals, such as boost pedals, distortion pedals, or modulation effects. Stacking multiple overdrive pedals can create unique tonal textures and dynamic range, allowing for greater versatility and customization of your guitar tone.

    Overdrive pedals are widely used in various music genres, including blues, rock, country, and jazz. Guitarists use them to add warmth, grit, and character to their tone, whether they’re playing rhythm parts, lead lines, or solos. An overdrive pedal is a staple on many pedalboards, offering classic tones and timeless appeal for guitarists of all levels and styles.
