Seafoam Pedals Introduces the Lowtide Overdrive

A unique low-gain, transistor-based overdrive.

Gulf Shores, AL (August 15, 2017) -- New from Seafoam Pedals is the Lowtide overdrive – a different approach than the typical transparent low gain pedal. Being transistor-based, not opamp-based like most overdrives, this pedal boasts unique and smooth gain while adding dimension and fullness to the guitar. The Lowtide features an interesting “focus” control that adjusts the type, placement and intensity of diode clipping for customizable gain shaping.

Features:

  • Five knobs to control volume, bass, treble, drive and focus
  • Top-mounted jacks for pedalboard convenience
  • Soft-touch true bypass switching
  • Standard 9v DC operation
  • Hand-made in the USA

The Lowitde overdrive carries a street price of $200 and can be purchased directly from the Seafoam Pedals online store

The author’s PX-6131 model is an example of vintage-guitar evolution that offers nostalgic appeal in the modern world—and echoes of AC/DC’s Malcolm Young.

An old catchphrase among vintage dealers used to run: “All Gretsches are transition models.” While their near-constant evolution was considered confusing, today their development history is better understood. This guitar however is a true transition model, built just as the Jet line was undergoing major changes in late 1961.
