Reuss OD-01 Cab Drive Overdrive
The Reuss OD-01 Cab Drive is an exact clone of a rare and collectable yellow 1970’s overdrive
pedal which featured an unusual 14-pin quad opamp IC chip. The Reuss version features a vintage recycled chip, and adds a tone switch to the original circuit for increased versatility
• ‘LEVEL’ sets the output volume of the unit
• ‘OVER DRIVE’ sets the level of overdrive. Turing the knob clockwise increases distortion
• ‘TONE’ selects between the “stock” sound (left position) and a flat eq response (right position). The flat
eq setting gives an increased bass response and makes the Cab Drive suitable as a bass overdrive pedal
• ‘IN’ is the input of the unit. Connect your guitar here
• ‘OUT’ is the output. Connect your amp here
• There is a 9V DC connector for an external power supply at the top edge of the unit. This is a standard
guitar pedal ‘negative centre’-type jack. ONLY use this type. Reversing the polarity will damage the pedal
Please note: The unit is drawing power from the battery, when there is a jack in the input connector. Alway remove the input jack
when the pedal is not in use, if you are running it with a battery
