    Up for sale/trade is my Johnk handmade Fat-Tone overdrive. More info about the pedal can be found here: http://johnkvintageguitars.homestead.com/CustomPedals.html

    For those who don't know, Johnk has tried/built every overdrive under the sun and this circuit is one of his very favorites. From what I understand, it's a variation of the classic Tube Sound Fuzz/Greed Tone Overdrive design, but with a lot more to offer.

    Here's what Johnk has to say about it:
    This one also include the three way toggle switch ($20 option) and a lo-boost switch; low end loss isn't even a question with this guy. The picture shows the pedal with the stock chrome knobs, but I replaced them with black Davies #1510 knobs because I needed to be able to look down and see exactly where my settings are at; both sets will be included.

    Only around 10 of these were made, so they don't show up too often! Can do anything from light overdrive to full-on blown tube amp sounds, all while remaining amazingly transparent. It has a way of bringing the fury while leaving your tone uncolored. Want a light OD to push a tube amp into light breakup? No problem. Got a P Bass? Crank the gain midway, hit the MORE setting and Starve switch and BOOM, you'll think Geezer Butler is in the room.

    So why am I selling it? This pedal sounds HUGE, but I have a modded BOSS ODB-3 which just works for the overdrive sound I need with my current project, even though it colors my tone and loses a bit of low end. If I could, I'd just sell the ODB-3 and keep this, but alas, I need to raise some funds as I'm starting school for my EE degree this fall and need to pay my entrance fees.

    I'm letting this go for $190 shipped CONUS. I do need money, but I will consider all trades, just send them my way, who knows, I could really need it! Worst I'll say is no.
