New BigTfx Vintage Overdrive Pedal, Staff Favorite
The BigTfx Vintage Overdrive is now our best selling overdrive pedal. It adds rich, warm gain without masking your guitars tone. The "Fat" switch provides a simple low-mid boost when you need it. Here is how it came about.
We have sold hundreds of Tube Screamer, reissues, mods, and TS clones over the years, and there is no doubt the sound is classic. Unfortunately, when we would run across quality control issues (including some that arrived DOA), we had poor support from some of the original manufactures. We asked our pedal tech to take a look at a couple of them and he found numerous cold solder joints and a few other areas that could improve the durability. So we decided not to make a better built, better sounding pedal, but to make a best built, best sounding TS style pedal. One that we felt confident in.
Over a six month period, we acquired all the overdrive pedals we could get our hands on and listened to them as a team. After the 7th prototype, we had a pedal, that in our opinion, could not be improved upon as a TS style overdrive pedal.
