A Must-Have OD Tone Of The 2000s & Beyond
The Warm Audio ODD Box V1 (“ODD” for short) is a hard-clipping, op-amp-based overdrive inspired by an iconic pedalboard staple known for having a “cranked amp” tone. Perfect for boosting, adding breakup, or adding high gain to cleans, the ODD has all the tonal versatility of its inspiration. Delivering all of the sounds of a cranked, saturated tube amp, the ODD features classic-inspired controls, including a UK/US Switch, to flip the personality of ODD from a “British” to an “American” tube amp. True to its inspiration, the ODD delivers the sound of massive, live electric guitar that attracted players like Billy Gibbons, Mark Hoppus, Eric Johnson, J Mascis, Paul Gilbert, and many more to that open tube amp sound.
Cranked Tone On Any Stage
The ODD brings the coveted “amp-in-a-box” tone to any stage or studio. With a high degree of touch sensitivity combined with powerful drive and tone controls - the ODD sounds like a full stack regardless of volume. The added versatility of the UK/US switch ensures that any guitar or amp will deliver a true cranked-amp tone in any setup.
To accurately deliver this artist-favorite tone, the ODD is built with through-hole construction using premium components, including a TLO82CP Op-Amp, 2N7000 transistors, & hand-selected capacitors & resistors.
Pedal Settings & Controls
The ODD has three critical OD controls on the front with a special addition. Drive controls the amount of clipping, or “overdrive” tone. The tone control increases treble as you turn it clockwise. The Volume control acts like a master output, increasing volume as you turn it clockwise. The UK/US switch quickly changes the personality of the ODD. The UK setting distorts earlier, bumps the upper mids, and increases volume - giving this setting more of a cranked, "chimey" amplifier tone. The US setting has a little more clean headroom, allowing the ODD to act more like a boost at first, and better aligns with traditional tweed-based "edge of breakup" amplifier tones.
