Are you looking for an overdrive that is not transparent
and adds its own character and attitude? The Moonshine is for you. Our
Moonshine Overdrive is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of
the most famous overdrive ever created and housed in a little green
enclosure. Blues, rock, country, jazz, and even hardcore/metal players
will find this is an indispensable tool for shaping and creating unique
mid heavy tones for almost any need.
You’ll immediately feel at home with our basic Volume, Tone, and

We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the most girthy, thick overdrive
you have ever plugged into. If you’re a fan of stacking overdrives,
you’ll love putting this in front of or behind your favorite drive,
booster, or fuzz. The Moonshine delivers on any style amp, easily
producing anything from SRV classic Stratocaster/Fender amp tones with
class to huge “wall of rock” The Edge-style force through a Vox. On
another note, you might find a few Dumble-esque lead settings that will
have you feeling like you saved a cool $100,000 in search of that sacred
tone. Last but not least, it kills on bass guitar, the reason it was
This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power and measures 2.2"x4.3"x1.5"
