Boutique-quality, all-analog overdrive designed for easy use on the road or in the studio.

Not simply a pedal with his name slapped on it, the Richie Kotzen Signature OMG Pedal was an intense collaborative effort. Richie, who has ears like a bat, was characteristically meticulous about every detail. It took many prototypes to get the OMG pedal to sound -- and feel -- the way Richie wanted it. Named not only after one of his songs, "OMG" is a perpetual exclamation whenever one hears Richie play.

The all-analog OMG has a unique, slightly asymmetrical distortion that emulates single power tube Class A amplifiers, but with a tighter, quicker and snappier response. It is designed to articulate every nuance of Richie' dizzying playing style.

¢ TONE: Specialized voicing for adjusting the high-end and mid-range. At max, it' flat. As you reduce the setting, it decreases the high-end without losing mids or getting muddy.
¢ GIRTH: Custom designed active mid-range control for compatibility with tube amp tone stacks. Cut or boost from 12 o™clock.
¢ DRIVE: Adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive, similar to when the output section of a tube amp is being pushed. Highly interactive with the level of your guitar. For instance, you can clean up the amount of distortion by decreasing the guitar' volume (except in very extreme settings) without having to change the setting on the pedal. Conversely, you can increase the amount of distortion by simply increasing the guitar' volume.
¢ BOOST: Kicks in up to 28dB of preamp gain when the OMG is engaged. This wide range facilitates feedback and sustain. Activated via its own footswitch, you can also use Boost independently from the effect for a clean boost.

      Comments about Tech 21 Richie Kotzen OMG Signature Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      To qualify, I have a Marshall DSL40C. This pedal produces every sound I ever imagined wanting. It does this with a combination of distortion, boost, and the ability to run them separately or run the boost into the distortion. In all cases the result sounds like a great big expensive amplifier. Starting with the clean amp output I can go from a gentle blues warmth with a little distortion, to a chunky but clear AC/DC attitude with a little distortion and a little boost, to a paint-peeling god-almighty meltdown with medium boost channeled into medium distortion. Dime'ing the boost and distortion is more like fuzz. But in all cases, one hears the notes, one hears the amp.

      Like most of you I've tried hundreds of distortion and overdrive pedals. This one stands above the rest; it is superb.
