Rothwell Hellbender overdrive

HellbenderBy now, you’ve probably got the impression that I’m mad for overdrives.  Fair cop.

This one is made in Northwest England an boasts quite a sophisticated circuit.  It’s gain characteristic is quite different from the Freekish Blues Alpha Drive or the Providence Stampede SOV-2, perhaps rather more British.  It’s slightly brighter but still very sweet and pairs well with my British amps.  I use it mainly on a lowish gain setting but it can give quite a lot of drive if required.

Beautiful housing, a very classy stomp box.
