It’s pretty amazing what you can get, these days, for less than $50, as far as guitar pedals are concerned. Chinese/Canadian stompbox builder Outlaw Effects is laser focused on exploring the possibilities within that price bracket.
Their Cactus Juice Overdrive is not just a fine sounding overdrive. It actually features two separate OD modes (“Normal and Juiced”) and also a tone knob for EQ fine tuning.
The NORMAL mode offers warm and creamy breakup, great for rhythm parts, blues guitars, etc, while the JUICED one increases the gain dosage to extra strength, and lets you tear through denser mixes.

And here’s the video we shot at NAMM 2018 inside our Stompbox Booth.
Two distinct modes offer a wide array of classic, screamer-inspired crunch: Normal Mode gives you that traditionally warm and creamy breakup, while Juiced Mode ups the gain dosage to extra strength, and lets you tear through even the densest of mixes. Level, Gain and Tone knobs give you complete control over your sound. – USA Street Price: $49.00
