The past several years have seen a sharp increase in interest and usage of transparent overdrive pedals. Unlike classic overdrives and distortion effects, transparent overdrives emphasize the natural tone of your guitar and amp, simply enhancing what's there instead of cloaking the sound in a layer of noise and coloration. Led by the game-changing Fulltone OCD in the '90s and extending to newer boutique options like the JHS Morning Glory and Paul Cochran Timmy, the class of transparent overdrives has come to form a distinct subsection of the drive pedal world.
