LunaStone Pedals Releases the TrueOverDrive 2

The newer version packs more low end and increases the gain.

Copenhagen, Denmark (April 3, 2017) -- Following the successful launch of TrueOverDrive 1 at NAMM 2017, the Danish guitar pedal brand LunaStone now follows up with a new overdrive pedal – TrueOverDrive 2.

TOD 2 looks very similar to TOD 1. In fact, on the surface only the number on the silk print sets them apart, but once they are plugged in, it becomes clear that TOD 2 adds more low end and a little more gain.

“Guitar overdrive is very often a personal matter of preference,” says Steen Grøntved, founder of LunaStone. “And for some, a beefy bottom is the tone of reference so that is exactly what TOD 2 brings to the board. Overall, the core tone and transparency is the same as the original TOD 1, but with that extra low-end punch that fits certain playing styles and musical genres better. It is our goal to cater for all guitar players, so it was a logical next step for us to make this tweak, tuning the pedal differently to make sure there is a suitable TOD for everyone out there.”

Physically, the appearance is exactly the same as TOD 1 with diagonally positioned knobs that can be adjusted on the fly with the foot, a clearly visible LED and a soft switching footswitch with relay. All of which is united in a minimalistic Scandinavian design package.

The new TrueOverDrive 2 pedal will be on display – and demo – at the upcoming Musikmesse trade show in Frankfurt, April 5 to 8 2017, at Hall 11.0 C87.

Pricing: $149 / €149

Here’s a different way to unleash the beast within your tracks.

Welcome to another Dojo. Last month I explained in detail how to set up and use sidechain compression techniques to get that classic pop/EDM pumping sound on your rhythm guitar parts and other instruments in your mix. This time, we’ll use the same setup techniques but, instead of sidechaining a compressor, I’m going to show you the benefits of using a gate.
