Argentinian company Sabbadius was able to build a solid reputation for their modern take on classic vintage circuits. Their new El Toro Overdrive is their own take on the Tube Screamer.

The New Old Stock TOSHIBA 1S1588 diodes give it a glassier tone, and it also offers more output than the original green drives, which allows for a variety of saturation possibilities.

Here’s the official vide of the Sabbadius El Toro:

The SABBADIUS EL TORO OVERDRIVE is a pedal based on the well-known Tubescreamers but with much more output impulse, with the characteristic tube sound and the classic “GLASSY TONES” of Texas Blues thanks to its NOS (New Old Stock) TOSHIBA 1S1588 diodes for the clipping.

The controls are 3:

VOLUME: Controls the Output Volume of the effect.

DRIVE: With this control you give the amount of Drive (Saturation) to the effect which makes it one of the main versatile characteristics of this pedal. From Min. To Max. You go through a lot of sounds and colors changes and sustain.

TONE: This control the tone of the effect that tints from the lowest and warmest tones to the most screeching and glassy tones that mixing with the DRIVE knob you can obtain incredible results.
