ColorTone Overdrive - Colorsound Style 70's Classic


The classic Colosound Overdriver™ bridged the gap between Boost & Overdrive recreating many of those popular, but hard to get tones of the 70's. Now you to can build a similar style circuit without overpaying. A favorite of Mr. Gilmour and Jan Akkerman of Focus among many.

We have added some modifications to the Original by adding a Master Volume Control and (a mod to smooth out the Gain Control). Must have for vintage tones!

Board Dimensions (W x H) 1.85” x 1.29” ca. 47mm x 33mm
