Spring is a low to medium gain overdrive with a max gain of approximately 44dB. It can be used as a clean (or clean-ish) boost at lower gain settings and a subtle overdrive with the gain turned up. Green LEDs provide just a bit of symmetrical clipping crunch when you dig into this pedal. The EQ is slightly mid focus to help tighten up low end and tame harsh highs. Mid-range will increase gradually as gain is increased to help provide clarity. However, the EQ remains relatively flat overall, unlike other green colored overdrives you might be familiar with. While Spring is the most transparent sounding pedal in the series it is not based on the Blues Breaker topology that so many other transparent sounding overdrives are. Spring is a similar concept, but has its own unique sound and place within the seasonal drive series.
Thanks for your continued support, and remember, these videos are intended to show off the PEDALS and what they can do, not what a brilliant guitar player I am - there are plenty of shredder videos out there, and besides, I'm really a drummer :)
