After compiling and publishing the list of the Best Selling Overdrives of 2017, which features almost exclusively units built by established companies, we were looking for an online “Best Of Lists” featuring mostly smaller manufacturers.
This video by Australian videographers In The Blues not only fit our criteria, but it exceeded it: it highlights overdrive/distortion pedals that are not pure clones of other circuits, but offer something very unique. How wonderful!
Here’s the video, a really interesting and mostly unexpected selection of stompboxes.
Check out our interactive galleries of this list, organized in single channel and multi-channel units, with quotes from the video and links to the single demos by In The Blues!
