Bjorn's Description​

The History
It has been several decades since the  “overdrive” effect was introduced in the guitar world.  How many overdrive pedals have been created since then?

The One Control Strawberry Red Over Drive is not an imitation of the sound created by existing equipment. No matter how great or high quality the equipment is, once you start targeting a sound, it ends up being a simulator. While you need sublime spirit to develop an advanced simulator, it cannot become a true original overdrive pedal.

The design and circuitry of the Strawberry Red Over Drive is being demanded by guitarists of all genres of music.  Naturally, guitars and guitar amps are necessary equipment for all guitarists.  Additionally, high-end guitar amps are in demand and will always be cherished.

So, what if we can offer an overdrive that is equipped with all the necessary sound attributes to sound like a high-end guitar amp? Of course, every model of high quality amplifiers have a different sound. However, there are common sound attributes that are recognized as “good sound” across all guitar amps.  Most importantly, understanding the combination of a high quality overdrive and an amplifier is incredibly crucial.  Through my experience, I am confident to say that I truly  understand the attributes associated to this "sound".  . Hence, the perfect overdrive must do the following:

・It must stimulate the core of the guitar sound
・It must be versatile in order to output the sound that guitarists envisions
・It must maximize the attributes of other equipment (amps, effects, etc)
・Able to provide a spectrum of distortion, from clean to strong
・Able to fully pick up all the expressions that a player manually creates through his own unique playing style
・Able to respond subtle sounds

All these characteristics were thought of when developing the Strawberry Red Overdrive. Nothing was compromised.

The Design
The Strawberry Red Overdrive can be fully manipulated with Drive knob.  From a complete clean boost to low gain bluesy overdrive, powerful hard overdrive and to even more powerful distortion.  

If you keep the Drive at the minimum level and increase the Volume knob, it becomes a clean booster at +6dB.  You can reduce the gain immediately if you turn down the guitar volume without moving the Drive knob. If you turn off the Drive on and turn down the guitar volume, you can get a clean sound that is rich in harmonic overtones all while maintaining a thick and sensitive sound.  Its quick response highlights the best of attributes of your equipment, even when the gain is set to high.  Actively using the pickup select switch will allow a variation in the sound expression.

Highly responsive and highly dynamic overdrive pedals can sometimes create a sound that is hard to control. The Strawberry Red Overdrive creates a sound that is easy to manipulate while responding dynamically to your playing style. How?  It never loses the core of the guitar sound.  The sound created is always dense and stable at its center of gravity.

The Treble control of the Red Strawberry Overdrive controls the mid-treble in the range between -3dB and +6dB. If you turn down the Treble, it can adjust the range between 70Hz and 7KHz.  If you set the treble to high, you can boost it to between 700Hz and 7KHz.
Because of these attributes, you can adjust the sound to match your playing style.  From a gorgeous distortion that augments the harmonic overtone to warm tones that reduce the treble. No matter what level you set it at, it won’t create an extreme sound that will take away from you player.  This allows you to have the freedom to create any elaborate sound by taking advantage of the knobs variability.
