Bondi Effects about the MkI
The Sick As Overdrive (MkI)
When we designed the Sick As were not content to produce a simple clone of an existing pedal. We drew from several influences of designs that we loved, to ultimately achieve something that we believe is truly one-of-a-kind. The Sick As features thoughtfully tuned active BASS and TREBLE EQ capable of fifteen decibels of cut or boost. In addition the GAIN knob balances between the overdrive and clean boost. Turned to the left, you have a sparkly clean boost pedal. Turned to the right are two distinct, and unique flavors of low-mid gain overdrive. The CLIP switch enables you to select which voicing of overdrive you would like. The HI mode is a more compressed, driven voicing reminiscent of Dave Keuning, of the Killers, while the LO mode is more a open, natural, boutique overdrive, similar to many of the popular overdrives of today.
- Split-rail technology for increased headroom
- Premium Audio Grade Operational Amplifier
- High Gain mode provides smooth compressed mid-high gain overdrive, reminiscent of Dave Keuning and the Killers.
- Low Gain mode for open natural EQ, and a transparent tube-like overdrive. The Low Gain mode sounds like your amp, but more of it.
- Powerful active Bass and Treble controls capable of up to 15dB of boost or cut.
- Gain knob balances between the amount of overdrive and clean boost.
- Premium 3PDT True Bypass Switch
- Powered by any center negative “Boss” type 9v DC power supply
- DC Current Draw: 20mA
- Limited Lifetime Warranty
The Sick As Overdrive retails for $199

- (2014-04-24) Guys, check out this clip of the @bondieffects Sick as Overdrive. I have it set here to just enhance your tone and give you a slight grit if you play hard but it sounds really really really really nice! I'm playing my @alpherinstruments custom Evertune g by Pedal Projects
- (2014-04-24) And here you have a lot more gain but it's still very clear and articulate. I seriously recommend that you guys check out @bondieffects and consider this sick (as) overdrive!! by Pedal Projects
- (2014-04-24) And here's the last clip of the @bondieffects Sick As Overdrive with the clipping switch up which gives you more gain and giggly more compression BUT it doesn't squash your tone, surprisingly because it's very common. I forgot to compensate for the volume by Pedal Projects
