An overdrive for the guitarist who wants precision, clarity and above all - simplicity.
The passionate redhead. She delivers smooth creamy break up with delicious front end clarity. When you need an uncluttered, concise overdrive, come and knock on Scarlett's door.
Seven years in conception and finally realized in 2011, Scarlett's siblings: the Seven Sisters, are a revolutionary new concept in the realm of guitar effects pedals. The world's first rechargeable guitar pedals - the Sisters feature a Lithium Ion cell (like that found in your cell phone or digital camera) and internal charging circuitry. Simply connect Scarlett to a regular guitar pedal power supply, charge her for four hours and Voila! 120 hours of actual use!
Two simple controls open a world of sweet, singing overdrive - Volume controls...the Volume! Gain controls...the Gain!
The tiny sisters have the Worlds smallest pedal board foot print - simply meaning they take up less space on a guitarists pedal board than any other available battery powered pedal.
Finally, the Sisters offer professional level features at an entry level price - putting all the goodies within the reach of any players budget.
Summon the Seven Sisters to your setup. Order today.

Comments about Red Witch Scarlett Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:
Not a tube screamer clone but a very versatile good sounding overdrive. It is very small and light with a long lasting rechargeable battery. If you recharge it when you change your strings, it will always be ready to play. I like that I can easily stuff it in a gig bag pocket and have my minimum rig, OD to amp, with me in a single easy to carry gig bag.
I'm not sure it is ideal for a pedal board as it is on as long as the input is plugged-in and plugging an un-powered AC adapter into it does not shut it off. Most (all?) 9v battery powered pedals disconnect the battery when an AC adapter is plugged-in which means in this case they are off. If the pedal board is unplugged from AC power, an input plugged-in Scarlett will continue to run until its battery fully discharges. LiIon batteries have their worst lifetime if repeatedly discharged to zero, stored at no charge, and recharged. I assume this is why Red Witch rates the battery at only two years of estimated life.
So bottom line, fantastic as a compact light stowaway in your gig bag, but maybe not leveraging its best features if left plugged-in, in an un-powered pedal board.
