The Electro-Harmonix Nano Operation Overlord overdrive effects pedal takes the acclaimed Operation Overlord FET overdrive circuit and packs it into a compact, Nano-sized case. Two different operational modes — Normal and Boost — span the range from smooth, subtle grit to full-on drive and distortion. Whether you're playing guitar, bass, or a mono synth, the Nano Operation Overlord gives you the control you need to dial in the perfect flavor of harmonic excitement. Complete with an active 3-band EQ for final sound-shaping, the compact Electro-Harmonix Nano Operation Overlord pedal is a powerful tone tool.
The original inspiration for the Electro-Harmonix Operation Overlord was to allow keyboard players to access the gritty, tube-style overdrive that guitarists have enjoyed for decades. But when plugged into a standard guitar rig, the Overlord sings with an amp-in-a-box type of tone that will make it the centerpiece of any guitarist's setup. A powerful onboard 3-band EQ shapes the tone, while the huge-sounding bass range makes the pedal a great option for bass players as well.
The EHX Overlord utilizes a FET-based overdrive circuit to offer grit that goes from jangly breakup to all-out fuzz. Because of its design, the pedal responds extremely well to your playing dynamics and volume-knob manipulations. It’s much like putting your favorite tube amp right on your pedalboard. And Music Experience players immediately noticed that the Bass control is especially helpful for giving your open-back combos the huge low-end punch of a sealed 4 x 12" cabinet.
A nano-sized version of the Operation Overlord with the same great overdrive and distortion tones, but in mono for those who don’t require stereo ins/outs. It’s super versatile and ready for your axe be it guitar, bass or keys. The EHX Nano Overlord is switchable between two modes: Normal and Boost. Normal mode provides low to medium gain sounds and relies on three amp-like JFET gain stages. When Boost mode is engaged it’s like adding a pedal-type OD circuit in front of the JFET stages to really increase overall distortion. The pedal also features a Dry blend control which is invaluable for bass and keyboards, a 3-position input level selector switch and an active 3-band EQ.
A super versatile overdrive ready for your guitar, bass or keys!
