The Big Bloom Overdrive is built in our shop just outside of Boston, MA. It’s a medium to high-gain overdrive pedal.

The Big Bloom captures the sounds and essence of prized amplifiers. At low gain levels, the pedal produces a very smooth and musical distortion, and at higher gain levels it will throw almost every note you play into controlled feedback. There is noticeable harmonics riding on top of the notes at all volume levels which give a very interesting sound. Some attributes that come to mind – honk, note flipping, smooth singing OD, bloom and lots of dynamic pic attack.
