Video: Electro–Harmonix Operation Overlord Allied Overdrive Demo

Joining the ranks of Electro–Harmonix's long lineup of stompboxes is the Operation Overlord Allied Overdrive, with a list of functionality as long as its name. The Operation Overload was one of the pedals that EHX debuted at Winter NAMM this year, alongside others like the Blurst Modulation Filter pedal.

The Operation Overlord features a boost that runs before the overdrive circuit for extra gritty tones, a 3–band EQ, a wet/dry knob for introducing clean signal, individual controls for boost and gain, and an input level toggle for different output pickups and instruments.

What's specifically cool about this little pedal is that it's not just a guitar's ally, but works with a variety of other instruments, too. Whether you're hooking it up to your keyboard, bass, guitar, or other electronic instrument, you're guaranteed to get that warm, gritty, tube amp–like response you're after.
