Colorsound Overdriver, 1974

The Overdriver is - as the name suggests - an overdrive pedal with a distinctive bass and treble boost. The pedal works very well with any kind of tube amps. With single coil pick-ups it gives a very transparent and super clean boost that sounds very dynamic and open, humbucker pick-ups will always result in a slightly overdriven signal. The bass and treble controls allow a wide range of tonal options, including a full-on treble boost. Very few of those vintage Overdriver pedals are left unmodded. Due to the remarkable volume boost when engaged, many users added a master volume pot (as the reissue pedal sports as well). This particular unit is still unmodded!
