Electro-Harmonix Crayon Full-Range Overdrive Pedal

Open up a box full of tonal colors. With an open frequency range and dedicated bass/treble controls, the Crayon is an alternative to mid-focused overdrives.
The Crayon is a versatile overdrive with independent bass and treble controls and an open frequency range that provides players with a musical alternative to customary mid-focused overdrive pedals. It delivers a range of sounds going from a suggestion of dirt to full-on distortion and is equally impressive all by itself or when driving another overdrive pedal.

"A Tried And True Classic, Crayon Defines The Full-Range Overdrive Pedal"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I wish I had about 20 EHX guitar and bass pedals! I sure dig the many options and love that the build quality is always a lesson in USA spec deluxe. Durability counts and these pedals are exactly that. Having said all that, The Crayon is one of my fave overdrive pedals, regardless of cost. Place in front of clean tube amp, set as basically a clean boost. Then slowly start adding in some drive, be amazed, play all enthused awhile, then add a bit more overdrive, become a whole 'nuther guitar hero, play crazy enthusiastic guitar riffs, then crank a bit more. It goes on and on, very rich harmonics from the Crayon, really shines up other drive and fuzz pedals into mojo tone bliss. No bad settings with this pedal. Highly recommended, a real joy to play.
