Friedman Unveils the Smallbox Overdrive
A pedal-sized circuit based on the company's British-flavored amp.
Huntington Park, CA (November 25, 2020) -- The Friedman Smallbox all-tube amp is well known for being one of the most flexible and touch-responsive two-channel amplifiers on the market. Now you can get that same tonal versatility, sensitivity and harmonically rich overdrive in a pedal. The Smallbox Overdrive packs the same intuitive control set as the amplifier, allowing you to dial in your perfect shade of rock, from vintage Plexi goodness to high gain madness in no time. It doesn't matter if you want a high-output cleaner tone for pushing your amp hard or a thick gritty drive that will sit well in any classic to modern rock band, a sweep of the gain control easily gets you there. If you want to reign in the gain more, simply flip the side mounted gain switch, and it will simulate the Plexi-Channel of the Smallbox Amplifier. Want to experience the amp’s accolade-garnering tone in the convenience of a pedal? Put the Smallbox Overdrive on your board today.
Though the Smallbox overdrive can scream with an unabashedly rock 'n' roll voice, you'll be surprised at how truly versatile it is. To get more out of the amp you already have, roll the pedal's gain knob back, flip the gain structure switch to “lower gain mode” and get a killer dirty boost.
