Dead Horse Overdrive


The Dead Horse Overdrive: What your old school green box overdrive wished it sounded like! Over the last decade the Dead Horse has become the go-to overdrive in the metal world for a reason- it sounds fucking good!


The Dead Horse Overdrive… NOW IN A SMALLER ENCLOSURE! Same killer tone you’ve come to know and trust… just a smaller space saving enclosure.
Yeah, it’s based on a Tube Screamer… but it sounds WAY better!

We took the classic design of the Ibanez Tube Screamer and went nuts from there. We performed all of the common ‘after market modifications’ by guys like Keeley or Landgraff and other boutiquers get upwards of $600 for.
Extended low-end, and more gain are just the tip of the iceberg… The Dead Horse Overdrive has the traditional Tube Screamer tone, volume, & gain control format with the addition of a switch to change the clipping diodes from symmetrical to asymmetrical. The DIODE switch results in the subtle sonic changes that only the truest of overdrive fanatics can appreciate.
