The vintage-style, all-analog El Cambo draws inspiration from the green effects pedals of decades past, giving you unbelievable tonal flexibility. Set the 3-knob interface just right, and El Cambo’s overdrive circuit can achieve anything from a barely there push for blues phrases to screaming solos and gritty lead tones. When you kick it on, you’ll notice that El Cambo’s drive and level controls feel instantly familiar. The tone control fattens up your sound without overwhelming the mix with an all-out midrange assault. Here at Music Experience, we especially appreciate the durable metal housing and true bypass switching that leaves the signal untouched when the pedal is not in use. And best of all, El Cambo runs on a 9-volt battery or DC power. Is your tone feeling grounded lately? Liftoff with the TC Electronic El Cambo and prepare to take your tone to new heights!
As far as versatile and ubiquitous effects go, an overdrive emulating a pushed tube amp is as good as it gets. EL CAMBO fattens up your tone with a little (or a lot) of extra girth around the waist, providing that highly sought-after midrange “oomph” that cuts through the mix, especially when your band is pushing hard decibels. This particular gritty honk gives your guitar a powerful voice that is ideal for a singing blues solo, and it’s also perfect for a hard rockin’ lead boost over the top of your amp’s already overdriven sound. Crank it up and testify!
EL CAMBO OVERDRIVE delivers a distinct midrange boost, one that can instantly warm up your tone, even if it’s a bit too jangly to cut through a loud rhythm section. Thanks to its symmetrical clipping overdrive circuit, the harmonic saturation is amazingly fluid and musical sounding.
With plenty of gain and boost on tap, EL CAMBO can be tailored to work in almost any setting. From adding just a bit of push to your preamp with subtle warmth to your tone, to a screaming overdrive with singing sustain and thickness, EL CAMBO gets you there. Whether the moment calls for blistering Texas-style blues, soulful pop ballads or classic rock riffs – EL CAMBO fits the bill!
Made from a sturdy metal housing, this all-analog overdrive will last for years and years without losing that warm tube saturation tone. EL CAMBO’s top-mounted jacks help save pedal board space and corral your cables, while the true bypass operation keeps your signal nice and clean.
