Product Description

The Lightspeed is one of the most popular pedals from Greer amps and for good reason! It sounds incredible.

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 about the Lightspeed

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.

On tour with Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow, and others), Alex Weeden (Miranda Lambert), Drew Shirley (Switchfoot), J.B. Brisendine (Brother Hawk), Casey Meyer (Jim Quick and Coastline), Jason "JJ Boogie" Reichert (Arrested Development), Justin Kennedy (Justin Kennedy Band), James Duke, Matt Goldman (Glow in the Dark Studios), JR Mead (Kutless), Jordan Peters (Lauryn Hill), and more!

I love this pedal. I stack it into a Walrus Mayflower and I have all the drive sounds I use in two pedals. Simples.

Great pedal - ideal for adding a richness and grit to a clean tone!

Mr. John Osborne4th Aug 2019

Just what I have been looking for, tried a few overdrives over the years and this does the job perfectly. Good enough for Danish Pete then says all you need to know.
