Reuss Ecstatic Overdrive
Marshall Bluesbreaker overdrive.
The Reuss Ecstatic Overdrive is based on the coveted 1990s Marshall BluesBreaker pedal, with the popular KoT/PoT modifications and all the vintage new old stock ‘mojo’ semiconductors parts that goes with it.
It’s a great sounding overdrive that offer a relatively transparent and dynamic overdrive effect with a slight high-mids boost. Compared to a classic tube screamer type of overdrive, this one is brighter, clearer and punchier. It really shines at lower drive levels, and gives some killer crunch-tones at modest drive settings.
The Ecstatic Overdrive can be pre-set to two different drive modes – or to a great sounding clean boost effect – via internal ‘DIP’ switches. The pedal stacks very well with other pedals, and works magnificently as a second gear to a classic overdrive/tube screamer-type pedal.
The overall brightness of the pedal can be adjusted by a presence trimmer inside the pedal.
