Designed by guest Custom Shop engineer Carlo Sorasio, Italy�Ê‰ÛÓÌös premier boutique amp and pedal builder, the Il Torino Overdrive uses MOSFET technology to recreate the gain structure of classic tube preamps, allowing it to sing with sweet, touch responsive saturation and natural sounding compression. Next, Carlo added a 3-band EQ section so you can finely shape the sound of the overdrive.Ì_å_
Finally, Carlo added a BOOST/OD switch to toggle between Boost Mode�Ê‰ÛÓ‰Û�a cleaner sound with just the right amount of compression and sustain�Ê‰ÛÓ‰Û�and OD Mode�Ê‰ÛÓ‰Û�a more aggressive, cranked tube amp sound.Ì_å_
This pedal uses a sophisticated bypass system in the form of a Class A Low Impedance Output Driver�Ê‰ÛÓ‰Û�essentially a form of buffered bypass�Ê‰ÛÓ‰Û�to keep your tone sounding warm and natural across long signal chains where signal loss normally occurs.Ì_å_
It all comes in a sturdy MXR box with all the high quality jacks and switches to make it last on the road.Ì_å_
