The "Torque" switch is what sets
the Four-Speed Overdrive apart
from other overdrive pedals. It
switches between four different
overdrive characters.
The "Rumble" Boost Switch
adds more booty to your
Also great for lower gain
settings like jazz or funk.
First, for the touring musician that is often flying out for
a weekend or overnight show and is using a scaled down
rig such as one or two guitars, a pedalboard and a
backline rental amp. The Four-Speed was designed to
sound great with any amp so you need not worry about
what type of an amp you'll bage when you step on stage.
Second, For the session guitarist who
may need to pull more than one sound
out of the same amp. You can cut rhythm
tracks with a fat semi-overdriven sound
then, with a few clicks and turns, burn out
your lead lines with a rich and inspiring
overdrive full of harmonics and sustain.
Third, For the musician who has an arsenal
of guitars and amps to choose from. This
allows them to use the same pedalboard and
effects pedals with multiple amps. The type
of pedal most switched out of a pedalboard
is the overdrive/distortion pedal mainly
because it is most effected by the amps
characteristics. Here's the pedal that sounds
great with any amp, tube or solid state!

The Four-Speed Overdrive is an extremely
transparent, dynamically responsive overdrive
pedal. It has a gain control that sweeps across
the range from boost to full on distortion and
all levels of gain in between and a tone control
that acts more like a presence control. Then
combine this with the "Torque" Switch, a
four-position switch that selects between four
overdrive "colors" or "characteristics" and a
"Rumble Boost" push-pull switch that adds
more bottom to your signal you've got one

versatile overdrive pedal.
When the first Four-Speed Overdrive was built, I didn't realize
the possibilities of a pedal like this. It was created to be the
most versatile overdrive pedal for the guitarist who may be using
more than one amp. Now, after all the feedback I've received
I've found that it's most often used in three major applications:
