Today, I am demoing a pedal straight off of my board, the MXR Classic Overdive. This small pedal packs a punch and has yet to let me down. The classic overdrive is actually the MXR GT-OD recased for a door buster item at Guitar Center’s recent Black Friday sale. For a guitarist on a budget, this is a great pedal for you.

This transparent overdrive gives a great volume/drive boost with low gain and heavy scoop that breaks up your amp enough to give you some crunch, but stays true to your clean tone.

My go-to pedal 75% of the time. Always on with my gain set at around 10 o’clock. I primarily use this pedal for slow worship songs, or at least I’ll start a song with the Classic Overdrive, then kick into something dirtier as the song progresses.
Here’s a short video where I focus more on the high end, switch pickups, and play a few chords at the end.

This is an overflow of creativity, knowledge, and experience. When given a talent, I quickly learned that it is for me to share. My passion is praising Jesus, and worshiping with my peers. My goal is to help upcoming and seasoned musicians reach their full potential. I love music, I love to worship. Here is your opportunity to do this with me. This is a time for me to be practical, to go in depth, to be honest. To make a sound louder than my guitars or amp with my drive to see others succeed. This, is An Honest Sound. -AO
