Distortion is a heavier effect than Overdrive.  It's found on more modern recordings including Modern Rock, Metal and more.  Distortion has various grades of "power".  When I think Distortion I think of anything from Metallica, Rob Zombie, and many more great heavy bands.  Distortion can be used for both fat and chunky rhythm tones as well as stinging lead solos.

    This pedal says it all..... Imagine this ph@llic statue on stage boosting your frequencies. Questions will fly by and you will be center of attention. Well, it is such a nice boost/overdrive!!!! It features one 12AU7 TUBE [included] and point to point wiring. Now with a toggle for a selection of the input capacitor. It also works great with bass guitar. One way to describe it ill be the following. Tube boost on [awesomeness] / Tube boost Off [boringgggg]! You choose
    The fascinating thing about it is that it gives the tube character to any amp you plug it in. It can make a cr@ppy little solid state amp sound like a tube one. So not only it boosts but also adds a tube flavor. It does not compress that much. The signal will be bigger, more open, louder with a really rich breakup. All you are asking for!!!!
    Only powered with a standard 9v dc adapter.
    So if you are after a real tube booster, this is the way to go. It captures all the tube flavor we love in tube amps and gives you the ability to add it with more flexibility!!! You try it once.......... you cannot turn it off!!!! Lots of punch and output and great break up.. a winner!
    Crazy name but an amazing pedal!

  • Bizarre Violine Distortion Pedal (VIOLINEDIST)
    Bizarre Violine Distortion Pedal
    _4N_Bizarre Violine - Best distortion pedal - left side front angle
    Soulful Guitar Tone
    The Bizarre Violine has a very warm and organic sound that always cuts through the mix both live and in the studio. It has a really unique voice, unique sound, but at the same time stays true to the sound of your fingers, instrument and guitar controls. It gives incredible sustain, harmonics and overtones.

    You can completely control the amount of saturation just by using your playing dynamics. It’s easy to achieve beautiful high gain or low gain tones by adjusting your guitar controls, dynamics or the gain knob. It responds and is more sensitive than any previous amplifier or pedal. Check the demos below!

    Studio Quality EQ
    Our EQ is very musical and sounds always good, even at extreme settings! The Bass control lets you dial how big you want your cab or combo to sound like. The Mid control lets you not only adjust the overall tone to your particular amplifier but it also enables you to have ultimate control on how vocal you want your tone to be. The High knob adjusts the overall brightness adding or cutting “air”.

    Clean Control
    The Clean knob allows you to add the clean signal back to the distorted signal. It mixes the pedal input signal with the saturated signal. Please note that the EQ only has an effect on the saturated signal.

    At moderate settings, it gives great note attack and definition and allows for dual amp style layering effect if used with boost or overdrive. Higher settings sound great on bass guitar where this clean parallel chain lets you add grit and compression, making it sound really big on the mix or for solos.

    Great for unique bass and guitar sounds!

    Precise Control
    All Controls have 10 detents so that you can easily and precisely recall your favorite settings and quickly setup before a gig. You can, of course, use the in between positions of the detents.

    Pedal Connect System
    Our Pedal Connect System allows the ON/Bypass state to be remotely controlled by devices like the upcoming Bizarre Midi Switcher or even a simple self-made on/off switch.

    Another feature it brings is that if you use the footswitch as normal it works as expected, but if you keep holding/pressing the switch down it will enter a nonlatching mode. This means that if the effect was initially OFF it will turn ON and stay ON only for as long as your foot is pressing down the switch. The contrary is also true.

    This is great for accentuating short parts and avoids a lot of footswitch control dance!

    True Bypass
    It is 100% True Bypass and uses a very high-quality relay that will last a lifetime. This heavily reduces the switching popping noise and the loud mechanical “clunk” associated with normal switches. No more pedal switching tap dance or broken switches!
    Other features:
    Can be powered using a standard 9 or 12V power adapter, 2.1mm center negative
    Consistent performance gig after gig, no matter what power supply you use or if the ambient temperature is hot or cold
    Bright LED that is always visible, even in direct sunlight or on bright stages
    Low battery indicator -if the LED starts to blink you have one hour of battery life left
    If the supply voltage drops to a very low level the pedal will switch to Bypass mode
    Reverse polarity protection: It simply won’t power up, protecting itself
    Overvoltage Protection: if the LED blinks really fast, please disconnect the faulty power supply
    Designed and built like a tank, it will last a lifetime
    Proudly Made in Portugal, Europe
    Made in Portugal (1 only!) Worth $415 AUD!

  • TOD2
    LunaStone True Overdrive #2 Overdrive Pedal (LUNASTONE2)
    unaStone Expands the Compact Pedal Series with TrueOverDrive 2 (Copenhagen, 3 April 2017) Following the successful launch of TrueOverDrive 1 at NAMM 2017, the Danish guitar pedal brand LunaStone now follows up with a new overdrive pedal – TrueOverDrive 2. TOD 2 looks very similar to TOD 1. In fact, on the surface only the number on the silk print sets them apart, but once they are plugged in, it becomes clear that TOD 2 adds more low end to the drive tone. “Guitar overdrive is very often a personal matter of preference,” says Steen Grøntved, founder of LunaStone. “And for some, a beefy bottom is the tone of reference so that is exactly what TOD 2 brings to the board. Overall, the core tone and transparency is the same as the original TOD 1, but with that extra low-end punch that fits certain playing styles and musical genres better. It is out goal to cater for all guitar players, so it was a logical next step for us to make this tweak, tuning the pedal differently to make sure there is a suitable TOD for everyone out there.” Physically, the appearance is exactly the same as TOD 1 with diagonally positioned knobs that can be adjusted on the fly with the foot, a clearly visible LED and a soft switching footswitch with relay. All of which is united in a minimalistic Scandinavian design package. More than 23000 guitar effects pedals from 4000 brands: http://www.effectsdatabase.com/model/lunastone/tod2
