The Tim Pierce Signature OD/Boost delivers that rich, smooth tone with articulation and impact just a like a Super Drive 60. With the separate bass and treble control the pedal gives you extend EQ choices. The Power Amp section of the pedal supplies a fat yet harmonically rich boost that emulates the 5881 power tube section of a Naylor Super Drive 60. Both sides of the pedal can be operated independently or cascaded together giving you extreme flexibility. Lastly, the Tim Pierce Signature OD/Boost maintains the inherent tone of any guitar it is in front of creating a very natural amp like guitar sound.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck.
