Swell Pedals about v2

The one and only Transparent OverDrive for Guitar (G-TOD) has been the go to pedal for Artists for quite some time now…and for good reason.

The G-TOD's real tube-driven tones are tight, round and woody and extremely responsive to playing dynamics and rolling back your volume knob.

Smooth natural compression and rich complex overtones are what SWELL Pedals are known for and the G-TOD is the pedal that sets the standard.

Everything from a gentle purr to a grinding roar is footswitch selectable for both live and studio applications.

Select between Drive's 1 & 2 for the just the right amount of gain and the NEW Boost remote jack (another SWELL 1st) gives you unparalleled control of your signal level with any simple latching on/off footswitch.

And yes-the TOD remains dead-quiet even with the output level control maxed out!

From your home Studio to the stage cranked amp tone and feel at any volume level via Amp and/or Record outs.

It's unanimous… all hail the G-TOD.
