Overdrive pedals increase the gain of the signal between the guitar and amp, which in the case of a tube amp will force the unmistakable sound of a cranked, distorting amp with the switch of a pedal. Some overdrive pedals more assertively color and distort the sound of the setup while others, such as popular transparent overdrive effects like the Fulltone OCD and Paul Cochran Timmy, strive to maintain the natural tone of the rest of your rig. You can find all manner of boost and overdrive pedals on Reverb, whether you're looking to give your sound a subtle bump in volume or drive your tone clear into breakup bliss.
