The El Cambo Overdrive effects pedal provides a variety of superb tube-like overdrive tones, perfect for blues leads, and hard-rock rhythms. It is the closest you can get to achieving the smooth sustained tones of a pushed tube amp.

Old School Tube-Style Overdrive
As far as versatile and ubiquitous effects go, an overdrive emulating a pushed tube amp is number one. El Cambo will fatten up your tone with some extra girth around the waist, giving you that highly sought-after mid-range "oomph" that cuts through the mix when your band is pushing decibels. This particular gritty mid-range honk gives the guitar a certain vocal quality that is ideal for a singing blues solo but also works formidably in a hard rock setting as a lead boost on top of an already overdriven sound.

A Mountain of Mids
El Cambo Overdrive features a distinct mid-range boost when engaged. This can help warm up a tone that's a bit too jangly to cut through a loud rhythm section and also gives a certain vocal quality to a lead guitar sound. With its symmetrical clipping overdrive circuit, the harmonic saturation is very fluid and musical sounding.

Boost Into Epic Solo-Mode
With plenty of gain and boost on tap, El Cambo can be tailored to work in almost any setting. From just a bit of push to your preamp and a subtle warmth to your tone to a screaming overdrive with singing sustain and girth, El Cambo gets you there. From blistering Texas blues, soulful pop ballads to classic rock riffs - El Cambo fits right in.

Built for the Road
Made from a sturdy metal housing, this all-analog overdrive will last for years and years without losing that warm tube saturation tone. Top mounted jacks are convenient and ingenious way to save pedal board space and keeps cable clutter to a minimum and true bypass keeps your signal nice and clean.
