Great for any electric instrument

The original inspiration for the Electro-Harmonix Operation Overlord was to allow keys players to access the gritty, tube-style overdrive that guitarists have enjoyed for decades. But when plugged into a standard guitar rig, the Overlord sings with an amp-in-a-box type of tone that will make it the centerpiece of any guitarist's setup. A powerful onboard 3-band EQ shapes the tone, while the huge-sounding bass knob makes the pedal a great option for bass players as well.

Tube-like overdrive and response

The EHX Overlord utilizes a FET-based overdrive circuit to offer grit that goes from jangly breakup to all-out fuzz. Because of its design, the pedal responds extremely well to your playing dynamics and volume knob manipulations. It's much like putting your favorite tube amp right on your pedalboard.

EHX is famous for cramming a huge amount of tone-shaping options into unassuming pedal designs, and the Overlord overdrive is no different. Along with the pedal's 3-band EQ and dirty tones come an independently footswitchable boost. This boost is placed before the overdrive circuit to push your tone into fuzzy territory that remains touch responsive. Stereo I/O will be a huge benefit to keys players and musicians who run stereo rigs. And the pedal's Dry control allows you to blend your unaffected signal back in for added clarity.
