Best Of the Best Dual Overdrive Pedals? [KOT, Gladio, Duellist,…

by | Mar 19, 2022 | 0 comments

Here we go then – our first ever fully live ‘normal’ TPS episode.

Why are we doing this? Erm, truthfully because we’ve run out of edit windows this week, so it’s either this or no show.
On a more positive note, we’re big believers that from adversity comes opportunity. We REALLY want to do more live stuff, so let’s do it.


There will be NO SUPERCHAT and NO LIVE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS – we just can’t keep on top of them. It’s just a straight TPS episode, but done live instead of recorded and edited.
Thanks for being with us!

Erm, I say in the video (Mick here) that this is inspired by a Nobels ODR-1 on the green side (correct) and a Boss BD-2 Blues Driver on the blue side (not correct). It’s actually a Marshall Bluesbreaker.
Seems that everyone is confused, because’s Browne’s site mentions the ‘Blue pedal used by John Mayer during Continuum’. Mr Mayer definitely had a Boss BD-2 at that time, and it’s blue.
He also had a Marshall Bluesbreaker apparently… which is black.
Please forgive the confusion! Either way, the nice people at Browne got in touch and confirmed it is inspired by an original Marshall Bluesbreaker.
