Zakk Wylde Overdrive

Overdrive

Image Not Available

Whether on his groundbreaking work with Ozzy Osbourne or with his own Black Label Society, Zakk Wylde's guitar playing is loud, tough, and relentless. Zakk's take-no-prisoners attitude extends to his quest for tone, too. When he wanted to develop his signature overdrive pedal, he looked no further than Dunlop. The result is the new Wylde Overdrive. This muscular stompbox will turn your clean amp into a heavy, chunky crunch machine. Or, use it like Zakk does and kick it in front of a dirty amp for a screaming, sustaining lead tone. The three simple controlsOutput, Tone, and Drivemake getting up and running easy, so you can concentrate on the business at hand: kicking major ass. Power: Single 9-volt battery or Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter - Controls: * Footswitch toggles effect on/hardwire bypass (red LED indicates on) * Output knob sets total output level * Drive knob controls amount of distortion * Tone knob tailors overall EQ

Finally a pedal that WONT color your tone. It's more of a boost kinda thing

You can use it for a wide range of applications from a boost to an overdrive etc..
Reliability

It's seen 4 tours and about 400 shows,been dropped, kicked, stomped on and still works like a charm!!
I Like
I liked the fact that it didn't color my tone and it preserves my amp heads and preamps actual tone.
Don't Like
Nothing to dislike!!

Everybody raves about the Keely. While nice, when it comes to dollars and cents and you are on a budget, thisis the swiss army knife right here!! One of a kind!! Nice job MXR/Dunlop!!

Just to clarify. This pedal did so much for my tone I felt I was a bit overzealous when I said 400 shows but yeah, I actually am offically on my 3rd one now as I by one, use it, sell it and I have done this over 4 years looking for the next best thing but finally accepted the fact that there is no other substitute for this pedal. Realistically speaking I have done about 90 shows over 4 years with one of these pedals. Sorry for being so overzealous. It's just a great pedal!!
