The Timbers Overdrive is a well rounded overdrive, designed to let the guitar/amp foundation of your tone shine. The clipping portion of the circuit allows the full range of your guitar through to avoid that nasal mid hump of so many drive pedals. But don’t be afraid of getting lost in the mix! The two tone controls give you the option of boosting or cutting both the treble and bass frequency ranges. An internal “Presence” trimpot also gives some extra flexibility to dial in your ideal sound. The clipping toggle switch is just another layer of flexibility! The UPposition is an open-sounding drive that maintains a nice chimey quality. Flip the switch DOWN for a more compressed, smooth drive. In either position, it can do clean or fairly distorted very well.
