The first in the company's line of US-built, boutique-style
effect pedals, Laffing Dog has unleashed a new overdrive pedal -
the Blue Dog - bringing a new mindset to the boutique pedal
Designed to appeal to both professional and non-professional
guitarists, the Blue Dog offers both clean boost, as well as
multiple overdrive tones. Designed to be interactive with the
guitars volume control, the overdrive cleans up nicely by simply
rolling down the guitar volume.
Each pedal offers the following features:
• Five knobs to control Volume, Tone, Gain, Drive and Clean -
allowing you to fine-tune your individual tone.
• Clean control to blend clean signal back into the overdriven

• True bypass on/off switch
• 9-volt operation and standard DC input

is used to overdrive a clean sounding amp, the Clean knob will
determine the "grittiness" of the signal. A wide-open Clean setting
can be used to push the amp into mild breakup in addition to the
tone of the Blue Dog overdrive section. Or you may find that the
Drive knob wide open with the Clean knob fully counter-clockwise is
the sound your after. Conversely, if the Blue Dog is used in front
of an already overdriven amp the pedal can be used to punch through
for solos, or can subtly, (or not so subtly), change the amps
character. Dialing in more clean settings can help a thick
overdriven sound maintain clarity and definition, (especially pick
Designed and built in the USA, the Blue Dog is shipping now.
