CRAYON V1-69

Online

The Electro-Harmonix Crayon is a versatile overdrive with independent Bass and Treble controls and an open frequency range that provides players with a musical alternative to customary mid-focused overdrive pedals. It delivers a range of sounds going from a suggestion of dirt to full-on distortion and is equally impressive all by itself or when driving another overdrive pedal.

• Full-range overdrive with a lush, rich, warm tone
• Independent Bass and Treble controls
• True Bypass for maximum signal path integrity
• Compact pedalboard-ready pedal
• Ships with a 9V battery and can use an optional 9VDC AC adapter like the EHX 9.6DC-200 psu
• Dimensions in inches: 2.75 (w) x 4.5 (l) x 2.1 (h)

Love this overdrive. Plying with an Epi Les Paul and Gibson LP Special and wow. Bass, tone and gain co trola give you a lot of variety in sounds. And the price is amazing! Love this pedal.

After 20 years of trying every overdrive on the market, I found the sound I wanted. If you are like me and hate the nasally sound of TSs and TS clones and want a more full sounding OD.. this is it. Having a bass and treble control is gold.. absolutely no coloring of my hand made amp.. just more of what I need. Can be used as a treble booster, transparent gain or full on drive.. and cheaper than anything else made of metal.. perfect

I use a 3 Channel dual rectifier. EMG 81 pickups. And I play Modern metal and thrash using the crayon as a boost. Same exact type of overdrive as an 808. But no mid-range weirdness very neutral. Maintains the tone of your amp. The most powerful knob on the pedal is the bass knob. The lower the bass setting the tighter the attack you will have. Tried many overdrive style boosts and this one takes the Cake regardless of the low price. Cork sniffers can take a hike. You would be very foolish to overlook this pedal if you are in the market for an 808 type boost.

Guitars: Epi Dot w/ Probucker PUPs & Epi Les Paul Custom w/ Gibson Burstbucker Pro PUPs Amp: '72 Silverface Fender Champ (original Oxford speaker) My Champ sounds great clean, but the stock Oxford seems finicky with OD pedals. Boss Blues Driver and EHX Soul Food left some unpleasant, fizzy artifacts (but both great on my Vox AC4!), and the Digitech Bad Monkey was just a bit too dark. Had some success with the separate bass and treble knobs on the Bad Monkey though, so I picked up the EHX Crayon...problem solved! The Crayon gave some fairly transparent OD, and really smooth break-up with the gain knob between 9 and 12 o'clock, I don't see myself going much beyond that, but there's a pretty wide range of overdrive/distortion available. IMO, the best feature of the Crayon is the separate treble and bass knobs. Being able to roll back the highs without over-doing the low end did wonders for the issue I was having compared to using a single tone knob. Great buy at $79, wish it came with a power adapter, but that's a tiny knock here! It might not be a Fulltone OCD, but I'd definitely recommend the Crayon!
