Sometimes boost is enough to get the grit required for your tone. Sometimes, it's not. But why carry around two pedals?
Ding Mao is a hand-built dual-function pedal with independently controlled boost and overdrive. It's really two pedals in one since each effect has it's own input and output.
The Ding Mao's boost function uses JFET to amplify the signal, providing up to +20db of clean boost without any coloration. Basic EQ is handled by the Boost Treble and Boost Bass knobs. This boost provides a wider dynamic range and allows for significant changes in tone with just the use of your picking dynamics and the guitar's volume knob.
The Ding Mao's Overdrive delivers smooth, tube-like overdrive ranging from a hot clean drive to aggressive classic rock tone. Simply use the Drive Level for volume, bass and treble EQ knobs, and the d.Drive to adjust the amount of overdrive in your signal. This overdrive sounds great on its own, but it certainly plays well with others, enhancing the natural tone of your main rig's preamp section.
Each effect has an independent input/output section so you are not locked-in to having a specific signal chain. The effects are bridged internally, however, so when you want the boost and overdrive next to each other there is no need for a third cable.
