From clean boost to light crunch to bright and warm drive tones, this tone can be used for both rhythm and lead.
It is a tone that is flat and has a wide dynamic range, yet the mids are exciting, which is required for guitar tones.
You can use it alone, boost other distortions and amps with SURFING BEAR OVERDRIVE, or push SURFING BEAR OVERDRIVE with another distortion or booster.
As a circuit, the base is the legendary drive pedal "808". However, even if it is reproduced and reproduced as it is, it will not be the "current sound".
The tone that guitarists today need to have a wide dynamics range, responsiveness with variable gain in the volume of the guitar, and clarity that allows you to instantly understand the composition of the chords. Not only is it clear, but the balance between attack and sustain is also important.
SURFING BEAR OVERDRIVE has enough sustain, and the attack and sound that are not too noisy even when cutting are not buried, and the distortion is clear and forward. Combining these elements, you can lightly customize the tone with the TONE knob.
The VOL knob has a high output level, and a clean boost is possible by lowering the DRIVE knob. Conversely, setting the DRIVE knob high will give you a mild, warm tone reminiscent of the legendary “808” tone.
The timbre is always clear and there is no sensation of muffled sound.
The foot switch is true bypass. It is powered by a 9V battery or a standard center minus DC 9V adapter.
Designed by Australian surf art painter Jonas Cleasson. The extraordinary feeling of a bear breaking coffee while surfing is drawn with a warm touch.
