    An as-new special edition "Heck" pedal, pristine but still ready to get weird. Comes with box.

    From ss/bs:

    f@ck overdrive. that’s how i used to feel and exactly the reason why i built this pedal. tired of the countless similar-sounding pedals on the market, i wanted something new; something unique.

    inspired by William Basinski’s The Disintegration Loops (a tremendously unique and beautiful record), the f@ck overdrive is my humble attempt to recreate in pedal form some of the crackling, disintegrating sounds found on the recordings. an extremely unique effect unlike any other, some of the tones are reminiscent of overdriven tape, blown-out compression, torn up speakers and overloaded tubes or amp “sag”.

    multiple jfet gain stages are at the core of this warm-voiced overdrive, with a huge range spanning clean boost to gritty drive to beefy fuzz. the f@ck overdrive sounds great on it’s own, but also pairs incredibly well with other pedals to transform your signal in subtle, yet complex and unexpected ways.

    the crackle function is dynamically modulated (envelope controlled) and can also be momentarily engaged or disengaged for dramatic moments. turn up the threshold and the harder you play, the more the overdrive crackles, tries to keep up… and fails miserably.

    at smallsound/bigsound, i have changed my mind about overdrive.
