While many overdrives emphasize particular frequencies, the Forza gives you a more even spread across the frequency range. The voicing is very open, and it sounds just as good through a clean channel or hitting an already-overdriven amp. In addition to up to 37dB of gain there's a three-band EQ for controlling the lows, mids and high end, and the Level control has plenty of range to allow use as a clean boost too. The Forza uses a glass diode, back-to-back stack overdrive circuit. It features True Bypass switching and is made in the USA.
