OVERVIEW

The perfect overdrive to add some color to your sound.

The Crayon is a versatile overdrive with independent Bass and Treble controls and an open frequency range that provides players with a musical alternative to customary mid-focused overdrive pedals. It delivers a range of sounds going from a suggestion of dirt to full-on distortion and is equally impressive all by itself or when driving another overdrive pedal.

FEATURES
  • Full-range overdrive with a lush, rich, warm tone
  • Independent Bass and Treble controls
  • True Bypass for maximum signal path integrity

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix CRAYON Full Range Overdrive - 69:

    This pedal is fantastic! It sounds amazing through my Twin Reverb. It's a pretty transparent OD and doesn't add that mid-range bump like a Tube Screamer (not that there is anything wrong with a mid boost). Having separate knobs for bass and treble really give you more tone shaping capabilities compared to one tone knob. I play a Les Paul and a Tele, so the extra controls really help. There is a ton of variation with the gain. Rock, blues, country, this is your pedal. It may not work well for metal. You can turn the gain way down and use it as a lead boost, or crank it and get a great crunch. It also works extremely well for gain stacking pedals. It's very responsive to the volume knob on your guitar, as well as your picking attack. It blows away boutique pedals I've tried, and for this price, you can't go wrong. Also, just because I was confused and had to do some research, there are two designs for this pedal, but they sound exactly the same.

    Fantastic studio tool!

    This is a great pedal for sending a low-crunch tube amp channel into rich overdrive.

    But, my primary use for this pedal has been in conjunction with my reamping setup. I use this pedal very extensively in my studio for adding character to vocals, snare, synths, bass, percussion, you name it.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix CRAYON Full Range Overdrive - 69:

      Awesome pedal for the money. I typically lean towards more bluesy overdrive pedals, but this one is a nice addition in the pedal train as it has a bit more grit and provides me with a brighter sound. I use it next to a Xotic BB+ and a Wampler Plexi pedal into Fender amps. The Wampler provides a nice bass boost, so the Crayon is a great companion in this set-up.
