Weather Man

Overdrive + Boost

$279 CAD


The Weather Man combines a versatile, dynamic, light-to-medium gain overdrive with a powerful, totally independent JFET-based clean boost. On their own, the overdrive and boost would make a welcome addition to any rig, but when stacked together, they make magic.

Each effect has its own true bypass footswitch but share a bi-color LED. When the overdrive is on, the LED will light blue. When the boost is on, the LED will be light red. When both effects are on, the LED will light purple.

Overdrive: From sparkly almost-cleans to aggressive rhythm crunch, the Weather Man's overdrive is the perfect do-it-all drive. As an augmented & modified BB style drive, it's not totally transparent, but not too colorful either. It adds the grit, sustain, and sparkle you're looking for without taking over your sound completely. The three-position voice switch lets you tailor the mid-range of the pedal, and from there the various external and internal controls allow you to dial a vast array of overdriven tones. It stacks really well with other drives, Fuzzes, and of course, the built-in boost. Your search for that perfect overdrive ends here!

Boost: On the surface, the Weather Man's boost is simple - just a single knob for volume, but it's so much more. Offering up 22dB of clean boost, its JFET-based design gives a wonderful tube amp-like feel that adds a liveliness and an ease to your playing that you won't be able to go without. The boost is placed before the overdrive in the signal chain, so when stacked together it pushes the overdrive further into distortion and gives a volume lift - perfect for solos or standout moments in a song.
