The GainOver Overdrive by Italian TEFI Vintage Lab was designed “for the musician who needs to move from a soft crunch to pushed overdrive tones during the execution of a song, always preserving the same sound but with different gain and volume using a single stompbox.”
It features two gain circuits – one high and one low – organized through a special proprietary circuit configuration, and sporting their own separate footswitch and volume + gain controls. A contour knob allows for extra tone coloring.

The Gainover is an overdrive designed to have two sections with separate Volume and Gain presettable: a section “LO Gain” features a low gain range to be used to adjust finely creamy crunch and a section “HI Gain” with high gain range where to unchain the instrument in exhilarating saturated tones.
The Gainover is based on a special proprietary circuit configuration (PCN), offering a dynamic distortion, creamy and characterized by a progressive action: will never come as a “scratched” sudden, but for low gain will always enter discreetly, giving significant musicality and respecting the dynamics of execution.
We designed the Gainover for the musician who needs to move from a soft crunch to pushed overdrive tones during the execution of a song, always preserving the same sound but with different gain and volume using a single stompbox. Useful also for single-channel heads to obtain 3 classic operating conditions: Clean, Crunch and Overdrive. On each of the two presets it is possible to adjust Gain and Volume for unlimited versatility.
