Mad Professor has unveiled Supreme, a dual-channel overdrive pedal designed in conjunction with blues virtuoso Matt Schofield.

At the heart of the pedal lies two OD channels, A and B, tailored to neck and bridge pickups respectively. The A side, which takes its cues from Mad Professor’s Royal Blue Overdrive unit, is equally capable as a boost or low gain drive. The B channel is an all-new formulation that’s voiced for beefy, dynamic tones and features a power amp-like response, which provides plenty of headroom.

The two channels can be toggled via an A/B footswitch and sculpted via independent three-band EQs. Another interesting feature on the OD pedal is its independent mode, accessible through a toggle switch. This mode lets you stack the two drives, unlocking a new box of drive tones along with “more gain and compression”, according to the brand.
