Built to emulate the sound of vintage Orange amps, the Monarch Overdrive by EarthQuaker Devices is a discrete, FET-based overdrive that gives you the ability to boost both bass and treble frequencies. For an organic, colorful tone that has a full low end and bright highs, the Monarch is certainly king.

  • Great pedal!

    As far as an orange comparison goes, I've only ever played a tiny terror combo... In my opinion it is way more than that! This is the best drive stacking pedal that I have ever owned, it stacks with my amp distortion and other dirt pedals, it is amazing!! As others have stated unity gain is really low, so there is a ton of room to blast off.

  • Holy Citrus!!

    Holy Citrus!! This thing is a dead ringer for that juicy Orange tone I've been looking so desperately without having to drop a ton on an Orange amp.

    It was as discribed, new in the box sounds great!

    Another killer pedal from Earth Quaker Devices. I was looking for a great sounding bass overdrive, this is the one. I love the simplicity, look, and tone of the pedal. Keeps the low/thickness of my bass and still cuts in a room with two guitarists.

  • Great for bass!

    Verified Purchase

    When I found out one of my favorite bass tones is a blend of an Orange AD200 and a Thunderverb, I went on a search for the Thunderverb in a box. I FOUND IT! Handles bass incredibly well, gives you as much grit and beef as you want, but also lends itself to be a subtle OD with the gain all the way down. Won't be leaving my pedalboard anytime soon.
