It is designed to overdrive distorted amplifiers and give dynamically controlled light overdrive on clean sounds.
Distortion level can be controlled by pick attack and pickup strength. Harder picking for overdrive and softer for cleaner tone.
With the unique Focus control you can adjust the feel and dynamics of the pedal as well as overal EQ.
Turning Focus CCW you need to play harder to get distortion and the tone is softer, great for jazz and blue.
Focus turned CW gives a slight treble boost and earlier distortion.
This type of overdrive has previously only been found in the BJF Honey Bee but is now presented in Mad Professor version. The Mad Professor SHOD has a tighter sound and is more versatile as it was designed to work with all kinds of guitars and amplifiers.
Like all Mad Professor pedals, SHOD is hand made in Finland using only premium components, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.
