Animals Pedal Major Overdrive Guitar Effect Pedal
The Major Overdrive is an overdrive that can make a variety of distortion from a slight dirty clean tone, crunch, all the way to a little beyond the gain when all settings are maxed out. That is to say, it doesn’t just put out the 70s Plexi amp tone, by daring to lower the voltage even further to produce the earliest “brown sound” that is said to have distortion going beyond what you get from maxing out the settings.
The hard rock sound of the early 70s is known for its strong distortion, but actually the gain isn’t that high. Fast phrases done with the bass strings gain increased momentum as they are emphasized. Real Plexi amps have the ability to make real distortion even with low gain when the band is playing together. Using the Major Overdrive, you can easily recreate that magic with the gain nob set near the center.
