HomeBrew Big D Overdrive/Distortion

HomeBrew Big D Overdrive/Distortion

The HBE Big D is an extremely versatile overdrive/distortion capable of achieving many different sounds ranging from light bluesy overdrive to modified hi-gain tube amp distortion.

- Input-Instrument in. Unplug when not in use to conserve battery life.
- Out-Out to amp
- 9VDC jack-for use with -(Negative) center, 9VDC, filtered, and regulated power supply.
- Gain control-Varies the amount of overdrive.
- Level control-Varies the amount of output. Capable of driving an amp in to saturation. Sounds best when ran a little above unity. (Louder with the pedal on)
- Tone control-Works backwards from a traditional tone control. Increase the tone control for more bass response.
- Bigger-(footswitch) Switches in and out the "Bigger" control.
- Bigger-(control) Variable boost gain stage, switchable with "Bigger" footswitch.
- On/Off-True bypass of effect. (Note: a small pop may occur when effect is switched on/off. This is normal and is a trait associated with true bypass.)

- Clip: Changes the dynamic response of clipping section. Hard: Increased output, reduced clipping.
- Soft: Less output, more clipping. (Will not function on diode select positions four and five.)
