Pharaoh about the Rodeo Drive

The Pharaoh Amps Rodeo Drive pedal is a medium-gain overdrive pedal well suited for blues or rhythm guitar.

The Rodeo Drive pedal is based on a unique CMOS integrated circuit. The characteristic distortion content of this device generates an interesting soft distortion sound that some have compared to tube amp distortion. The Rodeo Drive is loud enough to function as a boost even with its gain control at minimum settings.

Great for overdrive or milder distortion duties, the Rodeo Drive also works and plays well with others. The RD sounds great feeding or being fed by other pedals and also works well in many amplifier effects loops. The Rodeo Drive is a great alternative for those players seeking a fat blues tone who don't want to use the more common TS-XXX type pedals.

Controls:

  • "Level:" The Volume control adjusts the overall output level.
  • "Drive:" The Gain control is an input gain control for the first amplifier section. Lower settings of the Gain control provide overdrive-like or clean-boost type sounds. Higher settings of the Gain control offer more and more distortion.
  • "Tone:" The Tone control is a simple low-pass / high roll-off filter to take unwanted treble out of the output signal

Features:

  • Sturdy sealed aluminum PRO housing with a baked-on enamel finish
  • True bypass switching AND LED indicator
  • 2.1mm DC power jack, compatible with most popular power supplies
  • High-quality Switchcraft input and output jacks
  • Durable glass-epoxy circuit board and top-notch components
  • Stable IC op-amp based circuit for reliable operation
  • Socketed amplifier IC allows for easy servicing or repair if needed.

Pharaoh about the Rodeo 2

The Rodeo 2 differs from the older Rodeo Drive pedal in its overall EQ and response. The Tone control was eliminated and the output stage was beefed up to provide a more even tone across the available Drive range. If you have an older Rodeo Drive pedal, it can be converted into a Rodeo 2 at no charge.

Controls:

  • "Level:" The Volume control adjusts the overall output level.
  • "Drive:" The Gain control is an input gain control for the first amplifier section. Lower settings of the Gain control provide overdrive-like or clean-boost type sounds similar to tweed bass amps. Higher settings of the Gain control offer more and more distortion, more like deluxe tweed amps.
