OD-05 (Overdrive) w/Original Packaging

Effect Information

“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.”
