A little a lot more to the right, just a little far more…Also Much! While some pedal builders aim to give you the most obtain for your buck, Nunu Devices built the Tweedy Bird to let you genuinely dial in that sweet spot just north or south of a medium overdrive.
With only two knobs, Volume and Achieve, there’s not much to explain. The pedal runs on a 9-volt battery or an external energy supply. Correct-bypass switching and hand-wired circuitry with a Germanium diode are incorporated, but paint charges additional! OK, so the Tweedy Bird looks a bit unassuming, no large deal.
Cranking up the Volume knob and keeping the Gain low, the Tweedy Bird can double as a clean enhance pushing out a good 10 or 12dB. This will support set apart a rhythm and lead tone if you are making use of a single-channel tube amp. Bumping up the Gain really helped make my Fender Blues Junior sound a small meaner.
An intriguing bit of info you do not see in numerous pedal makers’ description is, “Hey, we voiced this pedal to sound fantastic with strong-state amps too.” Of course, I’m paraphrasing.
Clip 1 sent me straight to the garage to unearth my old Peavey Bandit. Although this amp will surely outlive me, it’s difficult to uncover a middle ground among an nearly sterile clean and a lackluster overdrive channel. I start off with the Peavey’s clean sound, followed by the Nunu adding a little grit. The guitar is a Fender American Regular Strat with single-coil pickups.
Clip 2 is the very same setup, except there’s a bit far more achieve from the Tweedy Bird, and I switched guitars to a humbucker-equipped Les Paul Studio.
Clip 3: To prove the Tweedy Bird isn’t all soft, here it is with more gain, still with the Les Paul, but plugged into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.
MSRP: $ 139
