Shannon Overdrive



The Shannon Overdrive gives you a custom, modified TS808 with true bypass switching. Made using metal film resistors and capacitors for higher fidelity and low noise, this overdrive offers amazingly warm, smooth overdriven tube tones. Improved bass response in the mid hump gives you a tight, but fuller, low end.

Another improvement to this classic is the use of heavy asymmetrical clipping that gives it amazing transparency. It won't mask the tone of your guitar and allows the most complex of chords to come through. The gain control has been setup for more drive that will give you rich harmonics and singing sustain when turned up.
