ToadWorks Leo Jr

  • Level
    controls the overall signal level.




ToadWorks Leo Jr is an overdrive effect pedal that emulates the classic American overdrive that made Rock & Roll what it is today.

A scaled down version of our Li'l Leo pedal, Leo Jr delivers all the tone with a minimum of tweakage. Priced to fit any budget, Leo Jr easily re-creates the classic tube overdrive of vintage American amplifiers.

Leo would be proud, and so will you.


The switch turns the effect on and off, the Gain knob controls the amount of overdrive present in the signal, and the Level knob controls the overall signal level.

Leo Jr features a true-bypass circuit, so when its off, its really OFF. Each pedal is carefully manufactured by hand, using only the finest components.


ToadWorks Leo Jr is a true American overdrive designed to provide crisp, clear, cranked-amp saturation, just like Leo used to make. Leo Jr makes it easy to emulate the early sounds of rock & roll, yet remains versatile enough to cover the hard rock sounds of the last 20 years.

Using a transistor based design, ToadWorks has created something few dare to attempt - a solid, reliable, affordable alternative to diming your high-wattage tube amplifier.

Leo Jr is hand wired, by people, not machines. From our high quality 3PDT switches to the custom made enclosures and knobs, each component is the finest available, making ToadWorks Pedals the most well-built and reliable effect pedals in the world.
