Stompboxtober Day 15: Karma MTN-10

Enter here for your chance to WIN a Karma MTN-10! Giveaway Ends October 16, 2021.

Karma MTN-10 

The Karma MTN-10 captures the warm and wonderful character of the long out of production Ibanez Mostortion, an overdrive pedal especially popular with Nashville players for its amazing tube amp-like sound. As in the originals, we use the elusive CA3260 dual opamp chip. The Drive control covers a huge range of almost-clean to nicely overdriven tones, while the 3-band tone stack EQ allows for subtle-to-extreme tone shaping. And the Volume controls kicks out plenty of gain to push the front of your amp. The Karma MTN-10 is true-bypass, using advanced modern construction techniques and sturdier, more reliable pots, switches, and enclosures. The Karma MTN-10 is now on the pedal boards and in the studios of many respected players around the world. Check out the many glowing reviews we've gotten on our Reverb page!


An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.


Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive


Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
