Rimrock Effects 'Mythical Overdrive'

$160.00

"I have been an acoustic and electric guitar player for over 25 years. Several years ago I became interested in electronics. This led to guitar repair and modification soon followed by effect building. I have built and sold hundreds of effects and enjoy passing on quality, boutique effects to fellow players for a fair price." - Ken Dalton

We proudly welcome Rimrock Effects to the Music Emporium family!

The Mythical Overdrive is a low gain overdrive / boost based on the legendary Klon Centaur. Each MO is handmade in Oregon by Ken Dalton himself, and they just exude quality from the moment you pick one up. We really love the overall look and pedalboard friendly size. 

To skip right to the point, these pedals sound phenomenal! We've tried a lot of "Klon Klones", in addition to spending time with the real deal, and these are as close to the real thing as we've encountered. This circuit excels at fattening single coil tones or pushing an already cranked amp in an incredibly sweet, smooth, compressed overdrive.

What's especially hep about the MO is that Ken builds them with two different clipping options, selectable via a mini-toggle switch on the top. In Ken's words:

"The 1N34 clipper offers vintage clipping at lower gain settings - germanium diodes provide warm tube amp like breakup. The NOS German Telefunken OA126's are a very rare and unique germanium diode that clips at a very high forward voltage resulting in germanium distortion tones at higher volume levels than normally associated with germanium diodes." 

Translation? To our ears, you get the option of classic Klon / mid-drenched boost tones - or - a slightly higher headroom, "bigger" sounding version of the Klon. Subtle to be sure, but it's there and a cool to have the option. 

As you can tell, we love the Mythical Overdrive. If you're looking to add that Klon magic to your rig, do yourself a favor and click the add-to-cart button - you won't regret it!
