Electro-Harmonix Introduces the Nano Operation Overlord Pedal

Electro-Harmonix Nano Operation Overlord PedalElectro-Harmonix has unveiled the Nano Operation Overlord, a distortion/overdrive in a compact chassis. The stompbox is versatile in application thanks to a three-position switch that sets the input level to make it compatible with guitar, keyboards, bass, and most electronic instruments.

It also has a three-band EQ plus a dry blend, which EHX notes is useful for bassists to retain articulation and bottom end. Normal and boost modes allow for quickly changing the texture and level of your distortion. “Normal mode uses three JFET gain stages for tube amp-style response and tone while Boost adds a classic pedal-type overdrive circuit before the JFET stages,” the company explains.

The Electro-Harmonix Nano Operation Overlord is available now for $89.40.
