Akai Tri-Mode Overdrive



Tri-Mode Overdrive from the Analog Custom Shop at Akai Professional is the big brother to our lower-cost Blues Overdrive. Tri-Mode Overdrive combines Level, Tone and Drive knobs with a Scream, Boost and Warm Tri-Mode switch in heavy-duty polished stainlesssteel housing. True-bypass switching, three adjustable knobs and tone toggle-switch provide precision tone control for an unrivaled tube-like sound.

Tri-Mode Overdrive’s Tri-Mode toggle-switch provides a variety of tone settings ranging from mellow cool to outrageous, wild abandon. Select Scream, Boost or Warm to enable soaring leads, lush chords and relaxed warmth. Tone may be further adjusted using the three precision Level, Tone and Drive knobs.

Tri-Mode Overdrive is powered by the included 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).


  • Triple-throw switch for Scream, Boost and Warm
  • Replaceable gain chip allows for custom tailoring
