"During the early 1980s the Pearl Company (Japan) made a great line of guitar pedals. These pedals were of outstanding quality and were produced by a company called "KLM" (all circuit boards were labeled with this name). The overdrive can best be compared to an Ibanez Tubescreamer with extra gain and the addition of a semi-parametric equalizer. Some prefer this pedal to theTubescreamer or the Fulltone Fulldrive."

"The Pearl OD-05 is a sleeper and is worth looking out for. It has two -- yes two JRC4558 chips inside ala the Ibanez Tubescreamer and can produce the sound of the TS-808 without the loss of bottom end. The EQ is pre-drive and provides for a ton of sound options. Single coil or humbuckers sound full and meaty through this pedal. It can get a little "mushy" when the overdrive is set too high and doesn't clean up enough at lower settings -- otherwise its perfect and a future classic."

"The equalizer on the OD-05 has a frequency range of 100Hz-4KHz and gain of +/- 15dB allowing you to select various tone colors."
