Back in July I posted a demo of the very cool Mad Professor Golden Cello which combines creamy fuzzy overdrive with Delay in one pedal, now Finnish effects company Mad Professor have released yet another Overdrive/Delay combination called The Bluebird Overdrive which has a more transparent and touch sensitive Overdrive which sounds perfect for Blues and Rock.
The Bluebird Overdrive Delay combines of two of the most popular effects in one pedal. The overdrive section is extremely touch sensitive. Like the best boutique amps, the Bluebird lets you determine the amount of breakup by how hard you strike the strings with your pick, and/or by adjusting the volume knob on your guitar. The Bluebird can add this level of expressiveness to any clean or slightly overdriven amplifier.
With just Volume, Distortion, Tone and Delay controls, the pedal is really easy to use. But for tweakers, there are trimmers inside the pedal for Bass control, Delay Time and Delay Repeats.
When using medium to low output pickups, and with the distortion set at its lowest level, the Bluebird can be used as a clean equalizer and delay. At higher drive levels, the pedal will produce medium distortion with lower output pickups, and heavier sounds with higher output pickups.
Bluebird Overdrive Delay is using only premium components, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.
The pedal will launch officially at Winter NAMM 2013.
