The Carrera Overdrive is a lower gain pedal designed for clean/edge of breakup tones. Often when playing clean it can feel like the guitar lacks presence in the lower mids and upper mids. The Carrera adds a slight boost to these frequencies giving your guitar a better balance throughout , perfect for cleaner single note work with more note definition and dynamics.
With bass and treble at around 2 o'clock and gain set low, it has a warm treble and a more percussive low end than your clean signal remeniscent of a Klon set for clean boost.
Although it really shines on cleaner settings, the Carrera is perfectly happy delivering vintage full bodied overdriven tones. Passive Bass and treble controls for a more natural sounding eq can brighten humbuckers, fatten up a strat bridge pickup or cut the undesirable low end from a strat neck pickup.
