EL CAMBO

This product is no longer available.
The El Mocambo Overdrive Pedal will fatten up your tone with some extra girth around the waist, giving you that highly sought-after mid-range "oomph" that cuts through the mix when your band is pushing decibels.

This particular gritty mid-range honk gives the guitar a certain vocal quality that is ideal for a singing blues solo but also works formidably in a hard rock setting as a lead boost on top of an already overdriven sound.

  • Old school tube-style overdrive

  • All-analog symmetrical clipping circuitry

  • Smooth and warm overdrive with singing sustain

  • True Bypass

  • Built like a tank

  • Power consumption: 9V DC and 10mA

No lie, I did buy it because of the bar in Toronto with the same name, not sure if it's around anymore. After playing around with it, I will say it sounds great and I will use it in recordings. I found the using it along with the RUSH boost pedal, it gave me that ooph I was looking for.

For me, this is the best low gain overdrive I have ever used or owned . This is an excellent example of "cleans right up when you turn the volume down on your guitar" ......I own Tubescreamer type pedals, and Centaur like pedals ....and this is REALLY natural .....sounds , for me, like a good tube overdriven amp SHOULD sound . ....Harmonically rich on single coils or humbuckers ......awesome at twice the price ! ........Only drawback is 4 super tiny screws have to be removed to install the battery ....though I have not yet used up a battery ........but tonally ....10/10 !
