This is a very intriguing and unique pedal because it features recreations of the two most popular overdrive circuits ever created: the Tube Screamer and the Klon. The two circuits can be used separately or combined, and feature the classic three knob controls of the originals.
Greenchild Amps is a rather new, family operated company based in Santa Fe, NM, although it was founded in Kentucky in 2013. They seem to have a knack for pedals featuring more than one circuit, and powered with boosted PSUs, which allows for more headroom.
They currently have two other pedals under their belt: The Tribus Drive features three independently voiced channels, with MOSFET based distortion, in one pedal, great for boost stacking. The Greenchild G777 is presented as a transparent Dual Overdrive with flexible EQ options.
