The TESLA WOLF OVERDRIVE is a JPTR FX staple, our quintessential low gain paragon that started it all. In an understated and classical style, it’s modus operandi is very simple: kick it & rip it.
Its simple controls allow for clear-cut and straight forward execution: a master volume, gain structure, low pass filter and a voltage choke shape its remarkably versatile base sound, which can go anywhere from soft clipping and a small pat on the but to a full concussion received at a stoner-doom gig where the stacks come tumbling down. Meanwhile, the voltage choke allows you to get that dying 9V sweltering fizzle, just without having to assault mother nature with evil batteries, and controllable range from a stabbed speaker (3 o’clock) to a sustain killing broken radio (noon) and glitchy little octave sputtering (<12 o'clock).Like with all things, it is the beast which is out of sight that is the most terrifying. As such, we have expanded the Tesla with additional internal dip switches to further fine tune your gain structure and base orientation, essentially turning this single pedal to four individual overdrive pedals in one housing:Switch one activates two silicon diodes, while switch two introduces two military grade (and over 3 decades old) germanium diodes, for a tight, tube like sound and classic, vintage-inspired fuzz clipping. The third dip switch gives the base orientation a tight & tidy smack - familiar from the old rodent-inspired gadgets from the late 70s - by adding two pairs of LED's to the circuit. The fun with combining all classically sought after clipping diodes in one housing doesn’tend there: turning all of them on or combining them reveals this humble overdrive to be a behemoth of gain possibilities. Conveniently, we have left a hole in the back for easy, tool free and gig-friendly access.The TESLA WOLF is more than just an overdrive for us. Stripped, bare and convenient, it covers the most ground in both late and modern overdrive history, ranging anywhere from the early Kinks stabbed speakers to modern and tight, and everything in between.
