The Il Torino Overdrive, the MXR Custom Shop showrooms latest addition, serves up smooth, organic grit with the controls you need to adapt its sound to your carefully constructed signal chain.
Designed by guest Custom Shop engineer Carlo Sorasio, Italys premier boutique amp and pedal builder, the Il Torino Overdrive uses MOSFET technology to recreate the gain structure of classic tube preamps, allowing it to sing with sweet, touch responsive saturation and natural sounding compression. Next, Carlo added a 3-band EQ section so you can finely shape the sound of the overdrive.
Finally, Carlo added a BOOST/OD switch to toggle between Boost Modea cleaner sound with just the right amount of compression and sustainand OD Modea more aggressive, cranked tube amp sound.
This pedal uses a sophisticated bypass system in the form of a Class A Low Impedance Output Driveressentially a form of buffered bypassto keep your tone sounding warm and natural across long signal chains where signal loss normally occurs.
It all comes in a sturdy MXR box with all the high quality jacks and switches to make it last on the road.
