The Cold Fusion Overdrive is a true overdrive that naturally melts with your guitar and amplifier rather than just changing your sound. The pedal has two distinct fields of application: If the Gain control is set at zero the Cold Fusion is providing more than 25dB of clean boost - more than enough to seriously overdrive the preamp tubes of your amplifier and get a natural cranked amp tone.
When you turn the Gain up past 9:00 you can gradually add more and more distortion. The Gain control is a dual pot that controls different parts of the circuit simultaneously, to produce a transparent, warm overdrive at any setting. The Gain knob and the Tone knob are useable throughout their whole range and are capable of producing many shades of overdrive. The spectrum extends from "touch of dirt" to "bluesy tube sound".
Unlike other overdrive pedals the Cold Fusion Overdrive doesn´t have that nasty nasal, midrangey taste to it and it doesn´t lose bottom end when cranked. An impressive crystal clear boost and fat, dirty overdrive sounds are the hallmarks of the pedal. The active tone control lets you cut or boost different parts of the frequency spectrum with no loss.A true bypass with LED indicator instead of a cheap input buffer and a 2,1mm barrel jack 9V connector are standard features with Banzai.
