The Barbershop Millenium Overdrive

Have you ever sat in a barber's chair wishing your tone was as slick as your freshly shaved upper lip? With the Barbershop Overdrive on your pedalboard, you could keep your moustache and sound good doing it.

Less is more with this simple, original design. This adaptable pedal, which is constructed by hand from JFETs that have been precisely matched, will treat your pickups with the care they merit. They will thank you in return with some of their beautiful tones.


  • SAG

The SAG control reduces the voltage to the amplifiers as you turn it counter clockwise, giving additional control over the character and feel of the saturation. The lower the SAG, the browner the sound. Full voltage is applied when the control is set to fully clockwise. It is at this setting that the pedal has the potential to be its cleanest and loudest.

  • Tone

A 3-position switch allows to select between different flavours of high cut. In the middle, there is no cut, like the classic Barbershop of days passed. To the right, a subtle high cut to tame ever so slightly the feeling of brightness accompanied with the Barbershop. To the left, a more extreme cut for those times when you want to deliver into your dark side.

  • Drive

Sets the interstage gain of the amplifiers. More gain means more distortion. The wide operating range allows you to go from an almost clean gain to a tasty rich overdrive.

  • Volume

Controls the output volume of the pedal while keeping the effect unchanged. This is where you have plenty of room to boost.

  • Notes on Powering

The Barbershop Millenium Overdrive was designed to operate using your typical centre negative, regulated 9-9.6 VDC power supply. The pedal is protected against reversed polarity. The pedal will function with voltages up to 18 VDC but the character of the pedal will drastically change. The higher the voltage, the less drive you will have. Always check your power supply for proper voltage and polarity before connecting. There is no battery connection inside the pedal.
