I have a love for overdrives and distortion boxes that dont change the color to much but gives a great boost to the sound of the equipment.

One of the things I was looking for was the classic lead sound that Zakk Wylde gets. He has a great tone and is really smooth when he solo's.

Disclaimer: That in your face style is just signature Zakk and is not included with pedal, so if you are trying to play like him, the pedal will help your sound but not the technique.

If you like a great overdrive, check it out!!!
Model Year: 2007
Price: $80.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Housed in a box similar to the Distortion +, the ZW Overdrive is equipped with three knobs (Volume, Tone and Drive). A power adaptor can be used.
Sound Quality:
Various guitars through a Marshall JCM800 and 1960A Vintage Slant Cab. Great for Blues, Rock and Heavy Metal ala Ozzy, Queensryche, Priest, etc.
Ease of Use:
This unit as simple as it gets - just three knobs. Start a 12 o'clock and adjust as necessary to get the flavor of sound that you are looking for.
MXR box. Rugged as the older generation boxes (ex. Distortion +, Phase 90, Phase 100, etc.)
