Huge-sounding sustain designed for a guy who knows his tone.

Robin Trower is known for tone, and the Robin Trower Signature Overdrive Pedal from Fulltone delivers a sonic effect truly worthy of its namesake. This pedal's got touch-responsive, huge-sounding sustain for days—and crystal clear when the guitar's volume knob is reduced for great live dynamics. This overdrive pedal sounds great with all of Trower's guitars. The front end of the pedal is specially tuned for those .012-.048 tuned-down strings. Robin's happy with the way it turned out. So give it a try. We think you'll be impressed.

Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop Robin Trower Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

Great overdrive, great boost for other pedals. I use it with my OCD and fuzzes. Don't expect tons of gain.

Much alike... but not exacllty the same as an OCD

By J blues

from FL

Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop Robin Trower Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

First, let me say I have been a huge Trower fan since 1974 and just had to check the Robin Trower overdrive pedal ( RT-OD) out myself.
I tried this with using a Strat with Texas special pups through a Marshall vintage/modern 2x12- 50 watt combo amp.
Its a nice pedal, but I already have 2- OCD's and a Fulldrive- 2 so in the end could not justify keeping the RT-OD for the higher price. In a shootout with the OCD, the RT-OD does have more gain much sooner as you turn the drive knob from min to max and seems to have more mid range tone but I just like the harmonics and versilitility of the OCD better, for me. The RT-OD is not exaclty the same as an OCD but has many similar qualities but lacks the HP/LP switch.
From what I read while researching, Fulltone developed this pedal for Robin so he would not have to switch back and forth from the OCD and Fulldrive pedal setups but I saw he still uses an older Fulldrive prior to this RT pedal on You Tube. I did not find the RT-OD to be an OCD + Fulldrive in 1 pedal.
Buy if you do not mind spending the extra money over other products and/or are a collector of signature pedals and just have to have it.
Skip if you want a pedal with more than the basic 3 knob configuration ( check out a Wampler Ecstacy instead, same price), or if you are already happy with your OCD, Fulldrive setup.
In the end I returned it and I'll just go with the set up Robin used prior to this pedal coming out in 2008, OCD and Fulldrive.
Standard 3 knob controls - (for the price should have more features)
Great Fulltone quality, all componets are heavy duty. If you have or are familiar with an OCD its the same type of enclosure minus the HP/LP switch.

Trower Power

Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop Robin Trower Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I run two Fender 5150 III heads and this pedal is not really doing anything with my system's sound that I liked sad to say. I play a higher gain sound though with humbuckers and this is probably geared for the single coil lower gain amp man. (or Woman). So I switched to my amp's channel 1 and lowered the gain and I still was not impressed compared to my Vox Saturator. For me anyway it is not worth the current asking price so I returned it.

The Robin Trower Overdrive Rocks!

By Strat_Guy_4_Ever

from Gainesville, Florida

Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop Robin Trower Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

A great overdrive pedal that works well with single coil pickups and strats. Used it with my Highway-One Strat, a G&L Legacy (Alder body with Seymour Duncan SSL-1s), and my John Suhr classic Strat... all of which interacted great with the pedal (producing with slightly different textured overdrive sounds, when run through a Grimaldi Tweed Amp 2x10, a Victoria Victorilux 3x10, and a Fender bandmaster head with an Avatar 2x12 cab with Texas heats). Pretty much nails the Robin Trower tone, give or take an EQ notch or tweek here or there; and does so without having to resort to the volumes necessary to generate that type of tone with a Marshall half stack alone... something I know the neighbors appreciate. As best as I can describe, it produces a controlled growl with a tight low end and vibrant low mids...couched somewhere between an overdrive and a distortion. Cut back on the guitar volume and it cleans up fairly nicely... allowing nuances in playing to cut through... so it is more than a one-trick pony if you work the guitar volume. Built like a tank... it's a Fulltone pedal -- Da! Perhaps its only shortcoming the price... about 60-70 dollars more than Fulltone's OCD pedal... but well worth it if you are looking for that elusive Troweresque vibe.

Beautiful, singing drive tone

Comments about Fulltone Custom Shop Robin Trower Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I loved this pedal. I think it sounded on par with the Zendrive, if not better. I used it in front of my Fulltone OCD occasionally, and got a nice, thick distortion. On it's own, it has some serious growl, a great overdrive tone, and even a great distortion. It sounds similar to my HBE Powerscreamer, but not too similar. I love the tone, I wish they could have added more versatile features, but it definitely rocks out of the box.
