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
  • Compact pedalboard-ready pedal

    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.

      This pedal is just right. The tone is amazing. Works with whatever guitar you plug in. My 72 classic series telecaster sounds amazing. This is everything I want in an overdrive pedal. Not sure what the difference is between the 69 and the 76 though...

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

      Okay, don't expect to just plug this in and be golden. There are a lot of colors to this little box of crayons and you'll have to spend a little time tweaking the knobs to find the sound you're looking for. The knobs, all of them, have a lot of range and a little movement makes a big difference. If you are patient with the pedal you will find some great tones, and other great tones, and other great tones, mixed with a few not quite there tones. There is also a lot of potential to mix this pedal with your other favorite OD's and Dirt Pedals to stack your distortion.

        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.

        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.
