Easy to use
The simple layout consists of single input and output jacks, along with a footswitch, and three control pots: DRIVE, TONE and LEVEL. The 'DRIVE' control sets the amount of gain and gives you a huge range to choose from, the 'TONE' control lets you adjust the high frequencies to cut through the mix and create anything from a guttural rumble to a searing lead tone. Finally, the 'LEVEL' control lets you set the loudness of the effect, so that when you hit the footswitch and add the distortion, you get the desired boost.
When you're doing your thing onstage, it is imperative that you have reliable and robust gear that can take a bit of abuse. The DR. Tone OVD101 is built to take a beating, with a solid chassis that holds up to the most vigorous of tests. The pedal can be powered by mains power using a 9V adapter, or a 9V battery when mains power isn’t available.
Whether you're just setting off on your musical journey, or are a seasoned pro who takes to the stage on a regular basis, The Dr. Tone Overdrive Pedal is easy to control, and offers some of the greatest overdrive effects out there, and at this price, it's a must have for any serious player.

- One of the best
- Excellent budget pedal
- Excellent quality
That is not the limit of this pedal though. This can go from a totally clean boost all the way to a distortion that could rival the likes of an Ibanez Tube Screamer. The tone knob is very good too. You can go from uber muddy yuckiness right up to a nicer, more transparent sound.
Very well built and I would certainly recommend this pedal. I'd definitely look at buying more Dr. Tone pedals in the future too.
