A mini version of the company's JFET overdrive.

New York, NY (October 7, 2019) -- EHX has unveiled the Nano Operation Overlord, a versatile, multi-instrument capable, distortion/overdrive with a broad range of distortion effects and tone shaping control.

Features:

  • Silent foot-switchable Normal and Boost modes that deliver distortion ranging from boost without the grit and mild crunch to intensely saturated overdrive and thick distortion
  • Normal mode uses three JFET gain stages for tube amp-style response and tone while Boost adds a classic pedal-type overdrive circuit before the JFET stages
  • A three-position switch which lets the user select the proper input level for their instrument and ensures that the Nano Operation Overlord is compatible with guitar, keyboards, bass and most electronic instruments.
  • Active Treble, Mid and Bass controls plus a Dry blend that is especially useful for bass and keyboards because it ensures that the instrument’s articulation, harmonic content and bottom end are retained.
  • A compact, space-saving design

The EHX Nano Operation Overlord is available now and features a USA Street Price of $89.40. An EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply is included.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
