The new Electro-Harmonix Operation Overlord is a brand new overdrive-stroke-distortion capable of working with guitar, bass or keyboard. So whether you wield an ES-335 or a TB-303, this puppy wants to make it scream!

JFET

Electro Harmonix aims to give you a valve-like distortion by using a JFET gain stage in the circuit of the Operation Overlord. Combined with a three-band EQ consisting of treble, mid and bass, the ability to add in the unaffected signal using the Dry Blend control means there a lot of useful options on offer here.

Stereo

While the pedal is stereo, it can also be run in mono as well, making suitable for most standard applications. Because it’s got a control switch for different input levels, it should handle any instrument signals thrown at it. It sounds like a neat idea and if the character of the drive is good then I think it could be very popular indeed. I am looking forward to actually hearing it.

Nothing on the EH site at time of writing, but of course I will update this as soon as I find some decent audio demos.

RRP $197.10
