The Animals Pedal Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive is the latest release by this playful Japanese manufacturer, but this pedal circuit already existed in a less refined version inside Nevada’s Skreddy Pedals‘ Major Overdrive.
The companies two teams worked together on an updated design with less gain and more headroom.
The result is a versatile drive with a classic, mild, cranked-amp voice reminiscent of British tube amps. A tone full of dynamics and sparkle centered around the midrange that’s perfect for more traditional genres like Blues or old-style Alt Rock.

Diamond Peak Hybrid Overdrive is the latest collaboration between Animals and Nevada-based Skreddy Pedals™.
The pedal is based on another Skreddy design, the Major Overdrive, but features less gain and more headroom.
This is a versatile drive with a classic, mild, cranked-amp voice that exudes British tube amp tone. Diamond Peak delivers plenty of crunch without getting fuzzy, muddy, or compressed, and is ideal for ultimate hot blues/rock sounds centered around the midrange that sparkle when the amp begins to break up.
