MSD Union Jack - Classic Class A Overdrive


Musician Sound Design

The Union Jack overdrive is a brand new development that perfectly complements the rest of the MSD product line. This device reproduces the typical British sounds of the sixties and early seventies - the sound texture reminiscent of Eric Clapton and Cream, Jimmy Page or Paul Kossoff. This being said, the Union Jack sounds the best when placed in front of a Marshall or Vox Amp. The overdrive sound is rich and full, and this tonality is retained even as the amount of Distortion is increased. When using a small amplifier or combo, we recommend using the Deep switch which significantly increases the degree of low-end response. Thanks to its enormous headroom, The Union Jack provides stable, consistent overdrive in front of any amplifier and never sounds muddy or undefined. Only the highest quality components are used in the construction of the Union Jack, including the meticulous hand-selection of the transistors that guarantees perfect, consistent operation from unit to unit.
