Shnobel Tone Introduces the Frank Simes Signature Overdrive

A highly versatile sonic tool, the pedal can deliver a broad range of tones – everything from mild, wonderfully organic overdrive to medium-gain crunch with a richly satisfying midrange kick.


The pedal is a collaboration between Shnobel Tone and guitarist, songwriter, composer, and record producer Frank Simes. Based in Hollywood, Simes‘ long list of credits includes work with A-list artists such as Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Warren Zevon, RodStewart, Roger Waters, Roger Daltrey, and Martha Davis from The Motels. Additionally, Simes was the musical director for The Who for many years.

Its touch sensitivity makes it a perfect choice for guitarists who rely on precise right-hand technique, and it cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar's volume knob.

Frank Simes Overdrive features include:

  • Three knobs: Volume, Gain, and Tone controls
  • True bypass foot switch
  • Top mounted power and in/out jacks
  • Hand-built with through-hole components
  • Crinkle-coated diecast aluminum enclosure, dimensions 4.7 x 3.7 Inches
  • Standard 9v center negative power – no battery compartment​
