MI Effects Release Cross Over Drive Pedal
MI Effects have released a video demonstration
of their new overdrive pedal 'The Cross Over Drive' pedal, which
will be released this coming August.
"The Cross Over Drive is a FET overdrive designed to capture
the response and touch-sensitivity of an amp's organic overdrive.
This preamp design is all about the strumming hand - with the
amount of drive determined by every nuance of the attack, be it
finger-picking or plectrum.
The pedal was dubbed the Cross Over Drive due to its
seamless transition from boost to overdrive to distortion to fuzz
with a sweep of the GAIN knob. At its lowest gain, it is a
boost/enhancer adding some extra sparkle to the guitar's natural
tone. Turning up a bit more GAIN gives some nice, complex,
tube-like overdrive but allows clean-up of the signal via the
guitar's volume knob that A/B's well against a standard clean. A
bit more gain and you have a smooth, harmonic-rich, sustaining lead
sound from 70′s rock to jazz-fusion.
Find the right EQ spot with the DETAIL knob, and blend
in the amount of top-end harmonics with the BALANCE control for one
of the sweetest, responsive drive tones that will have you
convinced you have found another channel in your
This will be a limited edition run of 250 pedals, due to
limited transistors supply. The XOD will be sold at selected
retailers worldwide, available August."
