The Animals Pedals Surfing Bear Overdrive V2 is a pedal that brings a delightful blend of aesthetic and sonic charm to your pedalboard. With its heartwarming design by Australian surf art painter Jonas Cleasson, depicting a bear enjoying coffee while surfing, it not only adds a visual appeal but also a wide spectrum of overdrive tones to your setup.

Dive into the Sonic Waves

The Surfing Bear Overdrive is not just a visual treat but a sonic powerhouse, providing a range of tones from a clean boost to a light crunch and warm overdrive sounds. It's a pedal that can be utilized effectively for both rhythm and lead playing, ensuring your guitar tone cuts through the mix while maintaining its warmth and clarity.

A Modern Take on a Classic Sound

While the Surfing Bear Overdrive takes its foundational inspiration from the legendary "808" overdrive pedal, it is not a mere reproduction. The pedal has been designed to cater to the modern guitarist, ensuring a wide dynamic range, responsiveness, and clarity even when the overdrive is pushed to its limits. The balance between attack and sustain is meticulously crafted, ensuring your playing is articulate and expressive.

Versatile and Player-Friendly

The V2 version of the Surfing Bear Overdrive brings player-friendly features, such as an easily accessible battery compartment and a footswitch placed towards the front for enhanced playability. The controls - VOL, DRIVE, and TONE - allow you to sculpt your overdrive sound with precision, ensuring that whether you're boosting your signal or seeking a warm, sustaining overdrive, your tone remains clear and vibrant.
