Not for me

By -jim

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Modtone MT-OVRD Special Edition Dyno Drive Overdrive Pedal:

It's a weird dirt pedal, It makes for a very thin fizzy sound on top of a basically uneffected clean tone. And you can't warm it up because the tone control appears to be before the drive circuit so to get much distortion you need to turn up the tone control. To me it has everything about the tone of a bad amp, like a speaker that's torn or something buzzing, but doesn't give any real grit to your tone. I've played through tube amps and this pedal doesn't capture any of the good qualities of a tube amp on the edge.

Also, it's not true bypass.

Now, there's always somebody looking for something weird so maybe there's somebody who will love it but it's going on the shelf here.

    Comments about Modtone MT-OVRD Special Edition Dyno Drive Overdrive Pedal:

    I use this pedal to give a little "crunch" to my rhythm and to boost my tube distortion. It is exactly what I was looking for. It is a nice complement to the pedals that I already have and can be used in combination with others. Overall I think this is a great pedal. If you looking for loud 'in your face' type of overdrive this is not the pedal for you; but if you're looking for a little kick and some versatility, its perfect.

    The pedal is like a weak tubescreamer, very thin sounding with hardly any drive. Not sure what this pedal is supposed to do. It doesn't boost anything

    Comments about Modtone MT-OVRD Special Edition Dyno Drive Overdrive Pedal:

    This unit thins out the bottom end of a guitar, and adds a treble boost. If used on a muddy guitar in front of a distortion, or high gain channel, it will push your distortion through the roof without any mud and will work wonders. I would not recommend using it on its own. It has an unusual bright sizzle in the gain. this is not an issue when used as stated above. I've tested on 5 different humbuckers,and on a strat.I also compared to other overdrives. results are the same for all guitars. Because of the treble boost, I had to turn the tone control all the way to the left to come close to the original signal. So, if you don't mind a little top end boost, and a thinned out (cleared up) bottom, this is for you. I paid 39.I gave it 4 stars cause you cant add back in the bottom end, and because of the treble boost.

        This pedal serves its purpose. Not the greatest sounding overdrive but adequate for a little boost. The price was great and I would buy it again at such a good price point. I would also try their other pedals as well.

        NOT ENOUGH GAIN

        Comments about Modtone MT-OVRD Special Edition Dyno Drive Overdrive Pedal:

        The unit seemed built well but maybe a bit more fragile than all the other effects I have. While the distortion sounds were OK, there wasn't enough gain when engaged (say for a solo). The effected volume would not exceed the bypassed volume even when set to maximum. I bought this when it was offered on Stupid Deal of the Day and thought it might be a cheap deal to add to my arsenal but it wasn't for me so I returned it. While shipping was free when I bought it, returning it cost me the round trip ticket. Save yourself an audition fee.

          Comments about Modtone MT-OVRD Special Edition Dyno Drive Overdrive Pedal:

          Sounds thin and separate from the guitar. It's like the amp has distortion but the guitar signal does not. I wanted it to have a little break up on songs that do not need full distortion. This is a very limited, terrible sounding pedal.
