OVERVIEW

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!

      Comments about Black Ice Battery-Free Onboard Overdrive:

      I have a Bugera 55w head which I really had to open up the gains to get good grit. With this little beauty called Black Ice I can get excellent blues grit on the clean channel and hard rock sound on the gain channel. The amp gain levels are not half of what they used to be now with better sound. I love it. Best cheap upgrade I ever spent on guitars.that actually upgraded something.
