I have often been asked. What's the difference between an OVERDRIVE, FUZZ, and DISTORTION pedal. The answer is quite simply that they sound a bit different from each other and are typically used for different types of tones. But to better illustrate this, the spiff folks over at Pro Tone Pedals made a spiff vid featuring one of each type of pedal to make things a bit easier. Each of these is a really nice pedal but they are NOT cheap. Honestly, I'd say pick which type of pedal you like and buy the JOYO or NUX version smile.gif Here is the vid.

Interesting video! Thanks Todd. I must say that those pedals look and sounds really good. Do you have any of this brand?

I'm exploring the website....

I just bought a PRO TONE DISTORTION since I've already got 3 overdrives from other vendors. Should arrive soon !!!
