Lawrence Petros of LPD Pedals has been methodically working on creating overdrive pedals that recreate the tone of the most popular guitar amp of all times, and the Fifty5 is his take on the Fender Tweed’style amp.
The three classic Level, Drive and Tone controls are in this pedal integrated by two toggle switches that deliver a few tonal variations.
The Voice switch adds extra low end for a “fatter” sound in the up position, while HDRM switch adds more headroom to the circuit, raising the internal level threshold where the signal starts breaking up.
Have a listen to the demos of the LPD Pedals Fifty5, we added it to our article about the best Tweed-style overdrive pedals.
