On this week’s Academy Of Tone, Thomas and Rich enter the world of transparent overdrive pedals! These low gain drives are seen by many players as being the holy grail in guitar tone… but what actually is a transparent overdrive, and why are they so sought-after? Thomas and Rich will look at a bunch on the show, including the legendary Paul Cochrane Timmy – the father of transparent drives – the Greer Lightspeed, the Nobels ODR-S Special and more!
PLUS, these low gain drives are perfect for stacking – using more than one drive pedal to achieve different saturation effects. Thomas and Rich will delve into the best order for effects pedals in your setup, and which drive should come first, and why?
We’ll take your questions on overdrives, pedals and AMP X live too, so don’t forget join us for the ride!
NOTE: this is a change of plans! We were originally scheduled to have Mick Woll join Thomas for this week’s show, but that has had to be postponed for a future episode.
