Hamstead’s journey into guitar pedals started with their Signature Tremolo, which ports the incredible analog tremolo circuit from their highly regarded guitar amps into a compact pedal. But it was with their Odyssey Intergalactic Driver, and its glorious dirt tones, that they really gained the attention of the pedal world. It packs an unprecedented versatility, that spans from clean boost, amp-like overdrive and distortion to crushingly fat fuzz. The sonic versatility is also very present in their Subspace Bass Distortion, Comet Interstellar Driver and Zenith Compressor/EQ, enabling players around the world to perfectly hone in on their own signature tone.
“It’s rare that a pedal’s hardware engineering makes me stop in my tracks, but the moment I held a Hamstead pedal in my hands for the first time, I was completely floored by the unreal build quality and attention to details. From the ultra-smooth bypass switch, sleek custom casing and perfect feel of the controls, these devices just exude quality. Naturally the sonic engineering follows the same sublime standards, where I’ve especially been impressed by the rich analog tremolo tones of the Signature Tremolo and the insanely deep and tweakable dirt tones in the Odyssey Intergalactic Driver.”
