Overdrive / Distortion
Overdrive and Distortion are the original gangster guitar effects. Created from players pushing their amps beyond recognition or from literally ripping a hole in their speakers, the dirt is truly born out of rebellion. From the soaring sustaining lead lines of David Gilmour, the crunchy arpeggios of Thom York and the roaring riffs of James Hetfield, distortion has shaped the history of music. So if you want to change the sonic script and add some crunchy character to your sound, be it through a sparkling low-gain drive or a fire-breathing metal distortion, then follow the dirty tone road and get your grit on.
