Amber Overdrive
Mad Professor Amber Overdrive

One of the most sought-after guitar tones must be a combination of a great overdrive or fuzz pedal straight into an overdriven tube amplifier. Well the Mad Professor Amber Overdrive produces this sound even when running through a clean amplifier!

This great pedal is another winner from Mad Professor. It produces a properly thick sound whether playing chords or cranking out single notes – always fat and juicy with just a hint of fuzz. For comparison, the circuit is similar to discontinued Golden Cello Mad Professor used to make, except now there’s more output on tap.

Though highly saturated, this dynamic overdrive can be cleaned up nicely with the volume control of your favourite guitar. And as with all Mad Professor pedals (and it’s not just us saying this), it offers a typically wide range of dynamics and the all-important, expressive touch sensitivity.

When you plug this great little pedal into a clean amplifier, the Mad Professor Amber Overdrive can give you the massive sound of a saturated amplifier cranked, running wide open. But it can also be used as a slightly distorted boost to increase saturation on slightly overdriven amplifiers. Great flexibility.

As are all the Mad Professor pedals, you get a usefully small footprint packed with great tone. It features complete true bypass.

It’s a great overdrive if you’re looking for fat lead tones, Eric Johnson tone, David Gilmour tone, Leslie West tone, long sustain, with just a little fuzz.

We are an online store only, so your new pedal has never been demoed on a shop floor or been out on display. We do though test all pedals (and any power supplies where included with pedals) before we send them out to hopefully minimise any hassles of faulty pedals on delivery.

We use recycled materials where possible for our packaging, and all our energy is from renewable sources. Check out our environmental page.
