Sounds: Mona Lisa Overdrive

“Its a distortion pedal yea, but it has this sort of tremolo effect on the side.”

Words // Review by Alex Norelli

Earlier this year Left Bank interviewed Shark? at the Northside Festival. At that time Jared Hiller was in the early stages of taking his DIY overdrive pedal to the wild box of tone and blitzing pulse that it is today.  Officially releasing just over 50 handmade pedals on December 2nd, these little magical sandboxes are the things dreams are made of, with just enough possibilities to give a little funky edge to your sonic vocabulary.

This casing was made from an old floppy disk case.

Right now the pedal is available at Main Drag, Ludlow Guitar, and Control (on Lorimer) // NYC. But you can also buy it online at L0/Rez’s website.

// Pedal prototypes from left to right, oldest to newest, the first one on the left broke mid-show when the casing caved in.
