The TOD-1 has successfully achieved the sweet, mild overdrive sound of a tube amp. Without losing the delicate picking and fingering nuances, and equipped with a tone control that can further emphasize the treble register and create a clean tone, the TOD-1 is capable of producing a variety of overdrive effects. It features a natural distortion that changes smoothly along with the input level.
