Jeorge Tripps dug deep into the vault for this one: Based on the original Supa-Lead which was manufactured exclusively for a Japanese music store and limited to 40 pieces, the Way Huge Supa-Lead is a highly-modified take on one of Tripps’s most unsung units; the Pork Loin.
The Supa-Lead MKIII is extremely amp-like, with a little bit of gain on tap until you really dig in, which unlocks the drive’s full potential. And in true Tripps fashion, the Supa-Lead MKIII is expertly voiced for maximum playability.
Tripps and Way Huge’s parent company Dunlop, will be at this year’s NAMM show, demonstrating this and a handful of others, so make sure not to miss it. – Nicholas Kula
The Supa-Lead Overdrive is a dynamic and touch sensitive overdrive pedal that cleans up immediately as you lower the guitar volume control. Designed to get amp-like crunch tones from a clean or slightly dirty amp, it produces a focused midrange grind with an abundance of output volume to kick your amp over the edge. Use the large sweep of the Tone control to dial in the perfect warmth, and with the Gain knob turned up, you’ll get a sonically monstrous sound that’s reminiscent of an exploding tube amp stack with large grain power saturation and hints of cone cry. Ride your guitar’s Volume knob or change up your picking dynamics for a cornucopia of tones from delicate to volcanic.
