Golden Cello has been one of the great success stories at Mad Professor. Of course it has, how could you not love a single pedal that has the tone of a vintage fuzz stacked with overdrive going into tape echo and a 100W vintage Marshall. Now, not everybody wanted the delay section of the Golden Cello because they placed the pedal early in the signal chain and then the delay was placed in the not so optimal spot. Enter the Amber Overdrive, which has the same golden guitar tone and exactly the same overdrive circuit as in Golden Cello. Only the output of the Amber Overdrive was increased compared to the Golden Cello. This was a popular request and we listened to our dear customers!
Now this captivating saga will have yet another chapter!
Over the years we have had some requests on maybe looking at somehow shaking up this loved circuit a bit, that it somehow could stand out in a mix a bit more. Not everybody is a rock star playing 5-note patterns with their own trio and not having to deal with the volume level of their guitar.
Now we looked at it! Amber Overdrive with Midas Touch mod brings more harmonic definition and carefully added silky presence to this highly sought after distorted tone bordering on fuzz. It is like the circuit got a new heart of gold and the golden tone got even more golden! Like you found another vintage fuzz or overdrive that was even better piece of the puzzle and sums up even more satisfying harmonic content! Amber Overdrive with Midas Touch mod has the fat and saturated but cutting liquid lead tone you’ve always dreamed off!
