Jackson Audio Optimist Overdrive Pedal

The Optimist pedal is a versatile overdrive with two distinct modes: OD1 replicates the revered Klon circuit for classic tones, while OD2 offers a flat response overdrive for rhythm work. It features an active EQ for tonal shaping, MIDI control for seamless integration into rigs, and germanium diodes for authentic vintage tone. The EQ section, based on the Baxandall EQ, provides precise control over frequencies, making it suitable for both single coils and humbuckers. With its MIDI compatibility and studio-grade EQ, The Optimist offers extensive tonal flexibility for guitarists.
