I’m happy to introduce what is the first in what will hopefully be a long line of useful videos that will hopefully give a bit more insight into the world of guitar effects.
Today’s video is on the difference between distortion and overdrive. A lot of people know the difference, but a lot of people don’t (including those who have played guitar for a long time). They have a lot of similarities of course (thus the confusion by some people) but are certainly different effects.
To demonstrate the difference between the two, I’m using the ModTone MT-OD Dyno Drive Ovedrive pedal and the T-Rex Tonebug Distortion pedal. I’m also using a Washburn P3 guitar with Seymour Duncan humbuckers and a Mesa Nomad 45 amp on the clean channel.
Thanks for reading/watching! If you’ve got ideas or feedback for future videos, please let me know!
