Friedman Small Box Overdrive Pedal

The Barking British Sound of the Small Box Amplifier in Compact, Cost-Effective Form!

Written by

Elliot Stent

Based on the amplifier of the same name, the Friedman Small Box overdrive pedal dishes out bullish, British-voiced distortion! Replicating the addictively touch-responsive feel of the full-fat valve amp that it derives from, this stompbox allows you to attain the same tonal versatility and harmonically-rich sounds but in compact form - and at just a fraction of the price too!

Friedman Small Box Overdrive Pedal Demo

Plexi Punch to High-Gain Heaven

The Small Box pedal packs the same intuitive control-set from the original amplifier, enabling you to dial in the perfect gain tones - from vintage Plexi punch to high-gain onslaught.  Whether you want to drive your distorted amplifier into sweet sonic saturation (like a boost pedal), or transform your clean channel into a thick and gritty drive that will sit well in any classic rock mix - the wide sweep of the Small Box's dedicated Gain control makes anything possible!

Flexible EQ Controls

If you want to reign in the gain some more, simply flip the side-mounted switch and it will accurately simulate the 'Plexi' channel of the Small Box amplifier. This also changes the feel of the pedal, which becomes more sensitive to your picking attack. And when it comes to tone-shaping, the Small Box overdrive's generous selection of EQ controls (Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence) allow you to sculpt the ideal sound for any situation.
