You like the great sound of the Route 808, but you want a more open sounding, amp-like overdrive with less dominant mid-range? Open Road is the overdrive you've been searching for. Finally, an overdrive pedal that delivers grind and girth. Clear low end, sparkling highs, and none of the mid-range hump found in most other dirt boxes. Play a sixstring chord and all the notes ring through. Play a single note line and it sizzles, punch a power chord and it grinds.
Open Road features a very interactive tone circuit, effecting not only high-end roll-off, but gain structure as well. At any setting, at any volume, Open Road produces organic amp-like tones that might cause you to leave it on all the time.
Works great on bass too!
