MI Effects Release Cross Over Drive PedalPreview -

MI Effects have released a video demonstrationof their new overdrive pedal 'The Cross Over Drive' pedal, whichwill be released this coming August. 

"The Cross Over Drive is a FET overdrive designed to capturethe response and touch-sensitivity of an amp's organic overdrive.This preamp design is all about the strumming hand - with theamount of drive determined by every nuance of the attack, be itfinger-picking or plectrum. 

The pedal was dubbed the Cross Over Drive due to itsseamless transition from boost to overdrive to distortion to fuzzwith a sweep of the GAIN knob. At its lowest gain, it is aboost/enhancer adding some extra sparkle to the guitar's naturaltone. Turning up a bit more GAIN gives some nice, complex,tube-like overdrive but allows clean-up of the signal via theguitar's volume knob that A/B's well against a standard clean. Abit more gain and you have a smooth, harmonic-rich, sustaining leadsound from 70′s rock to jazz-fusion

Find the right EQ spot with the DETAIL knob, and blendin the amount of top-end harmonics with the BALANCE control for oneof the sweetest, responsive drive tones that will have youconvinced you have found another channel in youramp!

This will be a limited edition run of 250 pedals, due tolimited transistors supply. The XOD will be sold at selectedretailers worldwide, available August."
