The White Light Overdrive is based on vintage overdrives that defined the sounds of classic hard rock. This vintage voiced stompbox is similar to a vintage DOD 250 or MXR Distortion+, but don't mistake it for a direct clone of these OD's of yesteryear. The White Light gives total control over the voice of the dirt along with a modern presence that is both dynamic and responsive to your playing. The Weight control allows you to adjust the saturation and low end, giving you plenty of tonal shaping options. The White Light Overdrive doesn't discriminate – it likes both humbuckers and single coils, and will add some real 70s grit to your tone. The Compression switch lets you choose between an open voiced overdrive with more high-mids and bite, or more compression with less bite and better mid-range.
Gain - adjust the amount of distortion
Weight - modify the saturation, bass response, and overall feel of the sound
Level - adjust to level of output
Compression Switch - control compression, mid-range freqs, and bite
True bypass so signal chain is unaffected when White Light is switched off.
