At first, the Carl Martin TOD High-Gain Overdrive was designed as the Limited Edition Dizzy Drive to celebrate the reunion tour of Danish alternative rock band Dizzy Mizz Lizzy. At the height of their success in the early '80s, guitarist Tim Christensen ran a BOSS Turbo Overdrive pedal through a Marshall Stack, which delivered a heavily-driven, high-gain sound that Carl Martin sought to update and improve upon. The pedal offered Tim's same distinctive tone but with a fatter sound and more headroom. Only 500 of the original Dizzy Drives were made and they sold out very quickly in Denmark and Japan. Today, Carl Martin is excited to re-release this pedal as the TOD Overdrive.

"It would have been a shame to not make this pedal available to everyone!" -Carl Martin

A new twist on a classic high-gain overdrive, the TOD Turbo Overdrive sports a single footswitch along with Level, Tone, Drive and Edge control knobs. Control the overall output of the pedal with the Level control and roll back on the high frequencies by dialing down the Tone control. Max out the Drive knob for tons of over-the-top overdriven tones, or keep the Drive knob turned down for a subtle crunch. For additional sonic flexibility, the unique Edge knob gives you the ability too increase or decrease the midrange frequencies while adding or removing presence. The Carl Martin TOD Overdrive features a die-cast housing and an appropriate Classic Yellow finish. 9V DC regulated power supply optional.
