ToneCandy Sweet Overdrive Pedal
This is our newest pedal and we are really excited about it. We let players try it out at 2 vintage guitar shows and got 100% approval from everyone. This pedal can go from very low to a medium high sweet singing distortion. This pedal really defines the notes being played and is very touch sensitive. It has a dark voicing that enhances the mid-low frequencies like an old class A amplifier, perfect for fattening up combo amps. We have also added a Bright Boost switch to deliver even more tone variations. We have gig tested this pedal for 6 months. It sounds the same at gig volume as it does in a small room at low volume. You will love this pedal!

Amp Like Sensitivity
All ToneCandy pedals have amp like touch sensitivity and they clean up when you turn down your guitar volume control.
Each pedal is hand soldered with pre-tested top quality components for long lasting durability. No machines are used in the assembly process and every step of construction is inspected thoroughly.
The pedal circuit is a 3 stage class A analog preamp using discrete components. There are no digital chips or opamps in this circuit. I use top quality FET transistors, capacitors and resistors to shape the tone for each preamp stage.
