Sleeping Dog, Howling Overdrive


Sleeping Dog, Howling Overdrive
In stock

The "Howling Overdrive" pedal is designed to offer a true valve amp style overdrive that reacts to the dynamics of your playing style.

Play gently and it's sweet and lush. Dig in on the strings and it literally Howls!

The pedal has three controls, volume, drive and Howl. The Howl control is an EQ that also affects the amount of gain. Turned all the way down, the control offers a bassier tone while cutting the overdrive level producing some great bluesy tones. Turned up the Howl control and it acts as a slight treble booster while enhancing the overdrive and slightly increasing the gain. Volume and drive settings work as standard.

Like a great valve amp of old the signal cleans up when you ease off the attack on your playing style and then unleashes glorious harmonically rich overdrive when you dig in on the strings. The pedal sounds tight in all settings and the integrity of your guitar's tone is never compromised. The overdrive isn't overly compressed and has a beautiful tone to it.

The "Howling Overdrive" has more of a classic blues and rock sound although it will go heavier when combined with an already overdriven amp. It sounds equally as good with humbuckers and single-coils.
