At the crossroads of Highway 61 and Junction 49 lies the official crossroads of Clarksdale, Mississippi the birthplace of the Delta Blues. This historic town, and the famous music that was created there, is responsible for the inspiration behind this pedal The Clarksdale Overdrive.
Blues and non-blues guitar players have used Tube Screamerå¬ type circuits for years to help them create their own signature sound. Over the years, countless players have been asking Brian to create that world famous vintage mid-range overdrive well he finally did it!
The Clarksdale is Brian's take on that world famous lime green overdrive many of us have come to love with a few great Wampler styled improvements of course. The world of Boutique pedals is filled with lots of great clones of that already famous circuit so what else could be done?
Brian wanted to create a pedal that would be true to the sound and feel of the original but would have a wider range of tonal options to satisfy even the biggest tone chasers out there. The addition of a 3 band EQ (Bass, Mids, and Treble) allows a player to have a more tailored tonal pallet than the original. The Lift/ Smooth switch will also allow a player to either sit in the mix with the Smooth setting or allow your leads to standout with the Lift option. Also unlike the original green giant the Clarksdale will not fizz out as much at low or high gain settings.
The Clarksdale has one foot in the past and one foot firmly planted in the future. Your Search for the perfect vintage midrange infused overdrive is finally over.
