COMING SOON: Audiode Overdrive / Distortion Pedal

The next-generation Audiode is currently in development.

Pre-orders will be available when production starts again later this year.

Just one look at the Audiode Overdrive/Distortion pedal and it's clear: This is something new. Everything about the Audiode was carefully considered to serve the purpose of creating a truly useful pedal for just about any guitarist. With a multitude of tube and diode combinations, the endless search for the perfect overdrive or the divine distortion is over. Feast on the smorgasbord of fuzzy flavors this pedal offers.

Without the diodes, the Audiode will give you a range of tones from clean boost to slightly tube overdriven to full-on tube distortion. Or, switch the diodes into the circuit and get an incredible range of clipping options from your choice of diodes – without losing the warmth of the tube amplification. The diode clipping produces a full palette of guitar and bass fuzzes, overdrives, and distortion. With so many options, there really hasn't been a pedal like this before, and even more sound options are just another tube swap away.

A Pedal Like No Other

Just one look at the Audiode Overdrive/Distortion pedal and it’s clear: This is something new. The Audiode was carefully considered to serve the purpose of creating a truly useful pedal for just about any guitarist. With a multitude of tube and diode combinations, the endless search for the perfect overdrive or the divine distortion is over. Feast on the smorgasbord of fuzzy flavors this pedal offers.

From a Touch of Tube to Diode Domination

Without the diode clipping, the Audiode is basically the tube preamp from our Audity One Recording Amplifier, which will produce a range of tones from a clean boost to slightly tube overdriven to full-on tube distortion. Or, switch the Diodes into the circuit and get an incredible range of clipping options from your choice of diodes – without losing the warmth of the tube amplification. With so many options, there really hasn’t been a pedal like this before. The diode clipping produces a full palette of guitar and bass fuzzes, overdrives, and distortion, with a total of 36 different germanium, silicon, and light-emitting diode combinations.

The Most Important Part: Quality

Our products are hand-built in Indiana, USA. Everything in the audio signal path uses top quality components, including 1% tolerance metal film resistors and 5% tolerance Orange Drop® capacitors. All components are chosen carefully, with superior performance as the primary goal. We check the operating voltages and give every product our 24-hour performance test before it leaves the shop.

A Pedal You Can Roll With In More Ways Than One

You can roll tubes on the Audiode until you find the exact tone and sensitivity you need. Instead of the stock 12AX7, dial back the gain with a 12AT7, 12AY7, or 12AU7. Get wild and try something like a 12BH7 for more headroom, or a 12DW7 to vary the gain stages. With the diode selectors, you have numerous options with diode clipping. Try symmetrical combinations of germanium, silicon, or LEDs… or mix diode types for asymmetrical clipping. The possibilities are huge! All-in-all, the tonal range of the Audiode is beyond what you would normally expect from just about any overdrive or distortion pedal.

The Curious Audiode is a groundbreaking guitar pedal – in fact, it’s more like having a whole pedalboard full of tube-based overdrive and distortion pedals in a single stompbox!
