An overdrive that recreates some of the most sought after amp tone of all time.

The Monarch Overdrive is an all discrete, FET based dirt machine. It's designed around the input stage of a vintage amp produced by a company that bears the same name as the color of the monarch (hint…). It's been configured to produce higher gains that sound very natural and free of compression. The treble and bass controls function as frequency boosters, not the traditional roll off filters in most OD's. They are located in the preamp section and have a large impact on the over all tone, nature and distortion characteristics of the pedal as well as your amp. It gives big bottom end with a snappy, bright top at all gain ranges with some careful tuning of the tone controls. If you are looking for an overdrive for big fat chords with excellent low end retention, this is it! And, yes, it's true bypass.
Handmade with sweet loving care in Akron, Ohio.

  • Great Pedal

    As reviewed by Tracie Anderson on 12/2/2013

    If you are looking for a great classic rock sounding clean distortion then this is for you! It has great controls and it is very responsive. The level or volume dial can really give your overall volume a huge boost so be careful. The gain doesn't quite get you to metal but adds great tone! The treble can get crazy high as well so I like it at 12 or 11. The bass can get very muddy so I end up running that at like 12 or 1. Overall I am very satisfied. I would recommend this pedal as a must!
