Oddfellow Effects The Bishop - Overdrive


Oddfellow Effects

Introducing the first single channel drive from Oddfellow Effects™! While the Caveman has become a staple on so many boards, it’s simply too much gain for a lot players’ needs, and not everyone wants a dual channel box. So we came up with a solution; The Bishop™! This single-stage, medium gain overdrive from Oddfellow Effects is a completely original circuit designed in collaboration with the infamous Scotty Smith of ProAnalog Devices. The Bishop covers so much ground, from a nice “top end hair” light overdrive, to full, thick, chunky rhythm tones. The dynamics and transparency that this unit offers are second to none. From the pick-sensitive feel to the volume knob clean up, The Bishop is one of those “leave it on all the time” effects. To top it off, The Bishop features an internal switch that allows the user to choose between “true bypass” or “buffered bypass” switching, as well as the ability to run on different voltages, enabling more tonal options. We do recommend plugging it in to 9volts, as the headroom is already phenomenal!
