Overdrive and Distortion Pedals

Overdrive and Distortion Pedals

There’s a seemingly endless list of options when it comes to overdrive and distortion pedals. Whether you’re after an ultra-hot distortion for metal, a bluesy overdrive, or just a gain booster for your solos - we’ve got you covered!


The classic overdrive pedal will cover a multitude of genres. From Led Zeppelin to B.B. King, all the great blues and rock players rely heavily on their overdrive pedals. The BOSS Blues Driver has long been a staple, as has the Ibanez Tube Screamer - both giving their own spin on the classic overdrive sound.

In more recent years, the legendary Klon Centaur has become an often-imitated pedal design. We stock some great pedals from RYRA, Wampler and Tone City that closely replicate this iconic sound.

If you’re after something with a little more grunt, the Fulltone OCD is a much-loved pedal, with the V2 now available. This pedal really bridges the gap between overdrive and distortion, making it incredibly versatile.


If you're more of a high-gain player, we have a great range of distortion pedals too. From the game-changing Boss DS-1 to the ProCo RAT or the MXR Distortion Plus - we’re bound to have something to suit your needs!

Amp-Style Pedals

There are a few brands that even make pedal-formatted versions of their amps. This means that you can achieve a sound that closely imitates some formidable amplifiers for a mere fraction of their prices. From the Friedman BE-OD and Diezel VH4-2 to the MXR EVH 5150 - we’ve got a truly great range to choose from.
