Pepper Trip+

Vintage Overdrive.

Our new line of LeeHooker distortion effects is based on the design concept requirement of vintage sound of the sixties and seventies of the last century while maintaining high user comfort. Similar idea was previously introduced by the famous British designer Peter Cornish. (His customers included entire British guitar elite such as David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and others …)

The pleasant sound of Pepper can be classified as „soft – cultivated distortion“ of the tube amplifier, similar to the sound of the Howard Dumble Overdrive Special. It is great for rhythm playing and soul-blues-jazz solos. Circuitry is based on the classic MXR Distortion + concept, enriched by more precise EQ, input buffer (eliminates losses, such as when using a longer cable between guitar and effect), low impedance output, true-bypass and standard 9V pin-negative power supply. Distortion doesn't change the sound of the guitar and is very dynamic. It responds perfectly to the volume of the guitar, when the volume is low the sound is clearer without losing its richness and color. For me, Pepper Trip + is a super usable overdrive!
