Airship Overdrive (RAH)
« on: May 28, 2012, 10:04:57 PM »
Here is a clone of the Catalinbread RAH. PCB artwork for this is over at FSB. Big thanks to Haberdasher for hooking me up with an etch.

This pedal absolutely nails Jimmy Page when using humbuckers. It is probably the most dynamic overdrive I have played. Playing soft or rolling back the vol a bit makes it super-clean. It does not have a lot of meat with single-coils, but play it as it was intended with some med-output HB's and you will smile.

Might try to do a demo but dont have anything good to record with.

Super Cool.

I can't wait to get my fabbed board back from Dorkbot and build this sucker up!

I did one on vero yesterday. It sounds great and is very quiet. Thanks for inspiring me to give this one a chance. Jimmy Page tone. Whoo Hoo!!!!
