The Visual Sound VS-XO premium Dual Overdrive is like having 2 outstanding overdrives in one pedal. As a matter fact, that's exactly what it is. Two independent channels with separate ins and outs can be routed separately to their own amps, put in different order in your pedal chain, or stacked for massive gain.
Each channel has its own sound, too. The right channel has pronounced mids without being honky. In addition to Drive, Tone, and Volume knobs, it also has a 3-way Clipping (diode) switch, a 3-way Bass switch, and a Clean Mix knob. The left channel also has Drive, Tone and Volume knobs, along with a Bass knob, but with flat mids, making it sound very amp-like.
The pedal offers true-bypass switching but offers the option to use buffered switching instead. Both are quiet.
- True-Bypass switches interact with gold-plated relays, and will last forever
- Separate Ins and Outs allow for system switching or changing order of effects
- Covered by the Visual Sound Lifetime Warranty.
- 5.11” x 4.45” x 2.05” including front jacks and top knobs
NOTE: Because tone is so subjective, we limit our printed descriptions of pedals. Descriptions here are largely edited from manufacturers’ sites. Your ears and your budget are the best guide. We recommend everything we carry and encourage you to come take ‘em for a spin.
