Transparent Overdrive Circuit Preserves Your Core Tone

The Soul Food's overdrive circuit provides a range of overdrive, from a clean boost to fully saturated distortion, while maintaining the tonal characteristics of your guitar and amplifier. Higher gain settings increase midrange frequencies for a richer, fuller tone that cuts through the mix. Whether using single-coil or humbucker pickups, the Soul Food enhances your tone without masking it.

Treble Control Fine-Tunes Your Tone

Easily adjust the treble frequencies of your overdriven tone with the Soul Food's treble control. Turn it clockwise to add shimmer and definition to humbuckers or tame shrill single-coil pickups. Turn it counterclockwise to get a warmer, darker tone from any pickup. The treble control, combined with the overdrive and gain controls, provides a wide range of overdriven tones to suit any guitar and playing style.

Compact, Rugged Design is Built to Last

Measuring only 2.75"x4.5"x2", the Soul Food is a compact overdrive pedal that won't take up much space on your pedalboard. Its durable metal chassis is designed to handle the rigors of travel and performance. Power it with the included 9V DC power supply or a 9V battery for convenience in any live or studio situation.

Selectable Bypass Modes

Choose between true bypass or buffered bypass modes to suit your needs. True bypass provides the cleanest signal path when the pedal is disengaged. Buffered bypass has a slightly colored tone but prevents signal loss, which can be useful in complex effect chains. Select the mode that works best for your rig and playing style.
