van weelden royal overdrive
Where have I been to not know about the Van Weelden Royal Overdrive pedal? Not only did this pedal start shipping in January it has already won a best pedal of 2013 by Dutch Magazine Gitarist!

In case you haven’t heard of Van Weelden they are an Amplification company very popular with Joe Bonamassa. Here is a video of Joe talking about his Van Weelden Twinkleland which is a great sounding Dumble-esque amp.

Here is a little clip of Allen Hinds testing the pedal:

I don’t have any details but I think you can work it out from the photo above, it has 2 switchable modes, a 3 way bright switch and a gain boost switch then it has a foot-switchable Mid Boost and the same kind of controls you would see on an amp including Treble, Middle & Bass control and a Presence control.

The current Van Weelden website seems to be undergoing a transformation at the moment so keep an eye on their Facebook page for announcements.
