The Royal Blue Overdrive offers a broad spectrum of tones ranging from light overdrive to distortion. At its lowest Distortion knob setting, it functions as an EQ. Additionally, it can be employed to produce a tube amp-like crunchy 'strike hard for distortion' effect. With minimal filtering on the overdrive, it delivers a transparent tone that can be further customized using both the Treble and Bass controls.
Similar to the finest boutique amps, the Royal Blue OD allows you to control the level of breakup by adjusting the intensity of your picking or by manipulating the volume knob on your guitar. This level of expressiveness can be seamlessly integrated into any clean or slightly overdriven amplifier.
