The Tom'sline ABS-3 Bluesy Vintage Blues Overdrive guitar pedal is a compact overdrive pedal emulates the Marshall Bluesbreaker amp sound. It's a simple pedal layout with the jack inputs on the sides as you'd expect and a case constructed with aluminium alloy to withstand heavy onstage stomping.
The Tom'sline ABS-3 Bluesy has three knobs, one for volume, one for tone and a third for gain giving you several options for tonal sculpting. The layout is very intuitive, meaning you spend less time figuring out and more time playing. The ABS-3 Bluesy is also True Bypass so it won't colour your tone when disengaged.
There is a two-way toggle switch that gives you an option for 'bright' with slightly boosted mids and highs as well as a setting for 'normal' operation. With this pedal, you get a nice breakup that's not quite full overdrive but perfect for blues leads and licks.
Pedalboard Friendly Size
The LED indicator is bright enough to be seen on the darkest of stages and the metal stop bar is really handy, preventing you from knocking the knobs with your foot whilst playing, as well as protecting them from any heavy-footed stomping.
The footprint of the ABS-3 Bluesy is minimal so it will fit on any board and requires a 9V power supply for operation. Included in the box is some 3M velcro hook and loop so you can stick it on your board straight away and get stuck in.
