The overdrive pedal that does everything it should

Hello,

I've bought this overdrive pedal, because i didn't see the point in spending more than 100 pound in another well known vintage distortion pedal that doesnt even have a true bypass. I compared one of these "boutique" pedals with the Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive and i've come to the conclusion that the Harley Benton does everything you could possibly want. everything is really high quality and will last for a long time. the sound difference to the more expensive pedal is barely noticable at all. The pedal does a great job in boosting tube amps and sounds very natural.
If you plan on buying a expensive pedal then first try out one of these and then make your decision.

good sound for rock'n'roll and blues music, but the pedal is bad manufactured. Use it very carefuly

excellent od. clear, transparent, respect the guitar tone. respond very well to your fingers. excellent buy. the only complaint is thomann the "plop" when i stomp on the pedal. but this is not uncommon for true bypass pedals.

This is the ultimate Tubescreamer. For 29€ you just can't go wrong. It's solid and good sounding. It's also a good modder pedal, since you can just open the whole thing up if something goes wrong or you get tired of it in it's standard form.

I've tested this against several other tubescreamers including an original TS9, Maxon OD808, Mooer Green Mile and others, it easily stands its ground. No TS ever sounds the exact same but if you don't mind that, this pedal is definitely for anyone who wants a TS tone for dirt cheap.

I absolutely recommend you to buy this even if you don't need it. I rarely do but it's just useful to have around for any situation that might call for it. Get this now!

In my opininon this is an OK overdrive. It does what it's supposed to do. It probably can't compete with more expensive pedals but for 30 euro it's more than OK.

A Tubescreamer

If your buying this pedal you probably want a tube-screamer but can't justify the money to buy an Ibanez or other expensive equivalent.

You're probably thinking; what's the catch?

Let me put your mind at ease..... There is no catch for the following reasons:

- It sounds extremely similar to a TS9
- It's genuinely rugged and well-built
- The Jack Ins/Outs are stable
- It's true-bypass
- The power supply housing is not flimsy
- The knobs and action do not feel cheap

Genuinely, the only problem with this pedal is that the price raises doubts. It's a great product and won't let you down
