MUSIKMESSE 2017: LunaStone TrueOverDrive 2 Guitar Pedal
To the delight of many of their fans, LunaStone's new launch entertains a second installment of tube-like overdrive; a logical move considering the success of the previous TrueOverdrive 1, which was released earlier this year at NAMM.
Whilst the pedal has an almost identical appearance to its predecessor, the TrueOverdrive 2's merit lies in its ability to produce a comparatively 'beefy bottom'. Being more predisposed to the lower end of the auditory spectrum, the TrueOverdrive 2 lends itself as the perfect companion to a range of different genres and musical styles. With a hefty bottom end (pardon the phrasing) you will be granted an imposing presence that will not only allow you to penetrate the mix but deliver more clarity to your tone.
As faithful to the tube-like overdrive as the original TOD 1, the True Overdrive 2 possesses the same high quality tone and clarity of sound as its older brother. Ride your tone steplessly with nothing but the volume knob on your guitar and experience anything from a delicate crunch to crushing cacophony at the gentle turn of a knob. Maintaining one of the staple features of all of LunaStone's Overdrive Pedals, the TruOverDrive 2 pedal utilises a cascaded gain stage approach which allows you for a more focused and powerful application.
The knobs on the pedal not only look good, but offer a practical solution to tweaking your tone mid-set. With the volume knob and drive knob placed at opposing sides of the pedal, you can experience unprecedented access to your controls, allowing you to change your sound at a moment's notice. Forget those moments of the past in which you find yourself on the stage-floor jostling erratically among a flurry of wires and LED lights all because you accidentally wiped your preset tones during load-in. Your foot may now reign as the master and commander of your tone, altering and directing your tone in accordance to the requirements of the venue/track.
