A beautifully transparent overdrive that conjures up smokey blues and classic rock tones.

The TC Electronic Cinders overdrive pedal brings coveted vintage tube amp tone to your rig with its all-analog circuitry. Designed for guitarists who want singing leads and full-bodied rhythm tones, the Cinders overdrive has an extremely responsive and dynamic feel. Its overdrive captures the warmth and richness of a cranked tube amp while remaining transparent enough to ensure your playing still shines through the mix.

All-Analog Circuitry Emulates Tube Amp Distortion

At the heart of the Cinders overdrive is an all-analog circuit that convincingly recreates the harmonic complexity and touch sensitivity of distortion from a tube amp pushed to sweet overdrive. The Cinders delivers the singing sustain, warm midrange and smooth compression that makes classic tube tone so addictive. Whether you pick softly or aggressively, the Cinders overdrive responds like a great tube amp by cleaning up beautifully as you lower your guitar volume.

Retains Clarity, Articulation and Vintage Tone at Any Volume

Some overdrives can make chords sound unfocused and muddy. The Cinders overdrive retains impressive clarity so your chord voicings and melodic lines come through articulately. Notes bloom rather than get blurred together. This transparency is essential for cutting through a mix so every nuance of your playing is heard. Thanks to its excellent dynamic range, you can achieve rich, harmonically complex distortion tones at bedroom levels with the Cinders overdrive. Crank the Drive knob to experience the same saturated tube-like tones produced by a loud amp pushing its power amp section hard. The Cinders overdrive gives you cranked vintage amp tone anywhere without having to deafen your audience.

Simple Controls Make Dialing in Your Tone Intuitive

The Cinders overdrive keeps things simple with just Drive, Volume and Tone knobs. The Drive control sets the amount of gain, taking you from mildly broken up to heavily saturated. The Volume knob adjusts your output level. The Tone knob lets you shape your EQ by cutting or boosting treble frequencies. With just these three knobs it's easy to find your perfect tone.
