Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 is as true to transparent and tube like overdrive as the original Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 1. Yet, it adds a serious punch in the low end frequencies, creating a beefier tone that will fill any venue with warm and fat overdrive.
Apart from that, Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 offers the same qualities and benefits: TrueOverDrive that doesn’t just sound like tubes, but also behaves like tubes. An overdrive that you can ride steplessly with the volume knob on your guitar, going from sweet crunch to screaming mayhem without the obvious ‘change of mode’ that typically jumps in at a certain point.
Like all Lunastone Pedals overdrive pedals, the basic concept is rooted in a cascaded gain stage approach.
For some musical styles, a thick bottom is what you’re really looking for. When your tone needs an inflated body and a massive presence in the room, Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 is your perfect choice. Or, if you’re in a trio band setting with plenty of room for the guitar sound, this effects pedal will win over the crowd, as you’re rocking out the house.
Finally, like the original Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 1, you also get a small footprint pedal with a beautiful Scandinavian design that just oozes stylish minimalism and one that serves a particular purpose.
Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 builds on the backbone of Lunastone Pedals’ most popular drive, Big Fella, and is the sharp edged knife that, combined with a warm potent body and sparkly overtones, makes you stand out with any band on any stage. You simply get the amazing Big Fella tone, but without a built in booster. Instead you get a significantly smaller footprint and a beautiful Scandinavian design that oozes stylish minimalism, one that also serves a particular purpose.
The knobs are not only placed diagonally because it looks killer, it is also because Lunastone Pedals know that sometimes a quick tweak is needed mid song.
With the Volume and Drive knobs accessible by the edges, you can tweak them on the fly with your foot. No more kneeling down, letting go of the strings, abandoning the groove and losing momentum. Just tweak on the go and keep doing what you are supposed to do. PLAY!
Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 is characterized by extreme transparency even at high gain settings. Something you would normally only be able to achieve with good quality tube amps driven hard and not from an overdrive pedal.
The characteristics of your beloved guitar, pickup settings and amplifiers stay intact and will not get smudged by over saturation when you increase the gain/drive amount on the pedal.
Also, turning down the volume knob on your guitar will make Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive 2 clean up your sound steplessly, thanks to the TrueOverDrive™ concept that is based entirely on cascaded gain stages.
There are basically three terminologies that are used to describe distorting guitar effects: distortion, fuzz, and overdrive. Over the years, these names have been mixed.
For most manufacturers, categorising is more a matter of taste and what they think a particular pedal sounds like rather than the actual physical differences in the electronic circuits. Essentially, ‘distortion’ covers everything that distorts a signal, whereas ‘overdrive’ relates to overdriving amp circuits, pushing a signal on the input of the amp that is hotter than what the amp is designed to cope with.
Today, most distortion and overdrive guitar effects pedal on the market use clipping diodes to create the distorting effect of the guitar signal. Lunastone Pedals TrueOverDrive™ pedals, Wise Guy, Big Fella and Three Stage Rocket, use a technique that have no clipping diodes in the signal chain at all. The overdrive comes exclusively from cascading gain stages, much like in a real tube amplifier. The result is a very transparent and tube like sound with lots of sustain and body. The reactions we have received from many guitar players, who have tried our pedals, is that they sound like a hot rodded Fender amp or a Marshall Plexi head driven hard.
The Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 is a high quality clean boost pedal, definitely not just a neutral active volume pedal. Lunastone Pedals founder and Head Engineer, Steen Grøntved, has deliberately tweaked it to add flavor to your guitar tone, and as a result, Lunastone Pedals have seen many players who actually use the Boost 18 as an always on preamp pedal, simply because they love the natural tube like sound of it. Now you can continue to do so with Lunastone Pedals Boost 18, but also get an additional kick upwards when using it for boosting.
Whether you want to push your tube amp into natural overdrive, or just need to lift your solos above the band, the Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 always delivers that truly sought after clean goodness!
Where other boost pedals just make you louder, the Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 takes a more refined approach to boosting by enhancing and focusing the tonal spectrum right where your guitar lives. Turn it on and instantly hear your tone stand out with renewed clarity, definition and punch as if you were pushing the tubes of a high headroom amp, making it perfect for beefing up clean rhythm parts or making melody lines stand out.
But hey, if you just want to use it as an always on tone enhancer we definitely won’t blame you!
However, if you want to get dirty though (and we know you do!) the Lunastone Pedals Boost 18 is the obvious choice for taking your tone from driven to blissfully wild. Crank it and slam it in front of your favorite overdrive pedals, or feed it straight into your already overdriven amp and get ready to hit the crowd with everything plus the kitchen sink. From crunchy blues rhythms to hard hitting power chords and sizzling solos, Boost 18 will give you exactly what you bargained for.
Now add True Bypass switching to the mix, so your core tone never gets corrupted, and you’ve stepped onto your new favorite sonic tool and secret gem.
