    Here's What TC Electronic Say About the El Cambo Overdrive

    EL Cambo Overdrive

    As far as versatile and ubiquitous effects go, an overdrive emulating a pushed tube amp is as good as it gets. EL CAMBO fattens up your tone with a little (or a lot) of extra girth around the waist, providing that highly sought-after midrange “oomph” that cuts through the mix, especially when your band is pushing hard decibels. This particular gritty honk gives your guitar a powerful voice that is ideal for a singing blues solo, and it’s also perfect for a hard rockin’ lead boost over the top of your amp’s already overdriven sound. Crank it up and testify!

    • Vintage all-analog overdrive
    • True Bypass
    • Built like a tank

    ​A Mountain of Mids

    EL CAMBO OVERDRIVE delivers a distinct midrange boost, one that can instantly warm up your tone, even if it’s a bit too jangly to cut through a loud rhythm section. Thanks to its symmetrical clipping overdrive circuit, the harmonic saturation is amazingly fluid and musical sounding.

    Boost into Epic Solo-Mode

    With plenty of gain and boost on tap, EL CAMBO can be tailored to work in almost any setting. From adding just a bit of push to your preamp with subtle warmth to your tone, to a screaming overdrive with singing sustain and thickness, EL CAMBO gets you there. Whether the moment calls for blistering Texas-style blues, soulful pop ballads or classic rock riffs – EL CAMBO fits the bill!


    Made from a sturdy metal housing, this all-analog overdrive will last for years and years without losing that warm tube saturation tone. EL CAMBO’s top-mounted jacks help save pedal board space and corral your cables, while the true bypass operation keeps your signal nice and clean.


    • Vintage and authentic sounding overdrive pedal
    • Shape the scream of your tube drive with the 3-knob interface
    • Classic blues rock tones that conjure up the great masters of the genre
    • True bypass for ultimate signal integrity
    • "Built-like-a-tank" metal chassis
    • Runs on 9 V battery or the PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)
    • 3-Year Warranty Program*
    • Designed and engineered in Denmark

    Mr Ricky Pablo Meza19th Feb 2022

    It's a decent pedal, good for light gain stuff (blues, southern rock, classic rock) but not for higher gain stuff (hard rock) I bought it because I wanted a good overdrive but this thing doesn't have much kick to it. I'm sure I'll find some use for it but it didn't really impress me. It's an overall decent pedal just know what you're gonna use it for before you buy it.

    Nice straightforward overdrive. Works really well with any single coil guitar. You don't need to be SRV to get the best from it.

    Danny Carden21st Apr 2020

    Great little TS clone it adds that nice little mid range bite to my amp to give that Killswitch style chug. The price is great. The switch isn’t the usual clunky switch so it only takes a light tap to turn on and off which should make operation simpler on stage.

    Gives me the tube screamer style overdrive for a small price and in a tank of a chassis. Stacks well other pedals
