The Lightspeed is one of the most popular pedals from Greer Amps and for good reason: it sounds incredible. Now we've teamed up with Greer Amps to bring you an Andertons exclusive: introducing the Lightspeed Purple Edition, designed with our very own Pete Honore!
It is a transparent overdrive that was built to specifically keep the organic sound of your guitar without altering the tonality too much. However, it can be set to 'colour' the sound a bit more and push a clean amp over the edge or add sweet sustain to an already driven channel.
Born in the USA
Greer Amps pedals are all made in the USA by a small team that value quality over everything else. Each pedal is made to order and goes through a rigourous quality control process before leaving the factory so you know you're getting a quality product that's been looked at by a human before getting to you. Meaning, it's not just a factory churned product.
Here's what Greer Amps say:
The Lightspeed Organic Overdrive is a very natural sounding overdrive. Why "organic"? Well, simply put, it's the clearest, most natural feeling, and best overdrive we've heard for the player looking for a natural drive tone. Blending with the tone of the guitar and amplifier, this pedal has rich harmonics and complex but smooth clipping. The Lightspeed Overdrive is sensitive to pick attack and has a different "feel" than other overdrives. The Lightspeed can be set to be "transparent," but can also drive your signal to the edge.
