Overdrive Pedal FAQs

What's the difference between overdrive and distortion pedals?

An overdrive pedal aims to naturally push your amp's valves harder to create a natural-sounding breakup. In some instances, an overdrive pedal will aim to mimic this effect, particularly useful if you don't have a valve amp. By contrast, distortion dramatically saturates your guitar signal, changing its character with EQ and clipping.

What's the difference between overdrive and boost pedals?

Some overdrive pedals have clipping circuits that add a small amount of saturation and grit to your signal. A boost pedal pushes the front end of your amp without adding any clipping - the result is usually a noticeable increase in the level of your signal.

Where does an overdrive pedal go in my signal chain?

Overdrive pedals usually go early your chain, after dynamic, volume, filter and pitch-shifter effects. This ensures clarity for the rest of your effects.

Should I have more than 1 overdrive pedal?

While overdrive has a simple and clear purpose, different overdrives have different tonal characters. Many guitarists have multiple overdrives; this will give you more choice over your tone. It will also allow you to stack your overdrive sounds for more complex tones.

What does buffered bypass and true bypass mean?

True bypass means that your signal goes straight through a pedal when it's not engaged, so there's no loss in signal strength. Buffered bypass pedals actively work to boost/restore your signal via internal circuitry to ensure that it remains strong and clear.
