Black Ice

Turn your guitar's tone control into an overdrive module.

Dial in some fun with Black Ice, the amazing battery-free circuit that turns your guitar's tone control into a great-sounding onboard overdrive.* With no batteries to worry about, Black Ice provides a lifetime of tone with no maintenance required.

The versatile Black Ice unit can be configured for just a touch of grit or a more aggressive grind. It's compatible with all passive guitar and bass pickups, is super small (about the size of a sugar cube) and very easy to install. Installation can be as easy as replacing the capacitor on your guitar's tone control with the Black Ice module. A variety of other wiring options are also provided for guitars with multiple tone controls and for those who prefer to access Black Ice via a switch.

*Note: Black Ice will not boost the volume or sustain of your guitar.

    Comments about Black Ice Battery-Free Onboard Overdrive:

    I guess I'm the ideal candidate for this little gizmo since I never use the tone controls on my guitars and I DON'T want to be futzing with batteries. Regarding the sound, it's not a replacement for a good overdrive pedal - sounds more like a distortion and doesn't boost volume or add sustain. That said, it's got a cool grungy vibe of its own and I love having it right there at your fingertips. Note to Jack Bruce fans – this thing sounds GREAT on bass!
