Caroline Haymaker

From the first day we began making pedals in fall of 2010, we received requests to build clones of well known overdrives such as the Klon Centaur™, Timmy™, and Tube Screamer®. We were never interested in pursuing that kind of work. Those great pedals are already out there, and for us to make something worthy of replacing one of them on our personal boards, it would take more than just putting our name on another maker’s design. We weren’t going to make and release an overdrive until we came up with our own thing that we liked even more. Prepare to be shocked at its character, range, versatility, and power. Easily capable of going from open, glassy flavors of boost to classic overdrive sounds that sound like an extension of your amplifier character, Haymaker can then go even further into high gain territory. Three switchable modes allow you to decide how the pedal responds to a broad range of settings and changes with your pick attack and volume control. That’s what we mean by “dynamic drive”. From transparent punch to touch-sensitive amp-like textures and fuzzy blast that’s rich in color, Haymaker has it all: it’s capable of stacking great and complementing your other drives, it’s made by hand in our small-batch distortery, and features a gorgeous powder coated 1590BB “big boy” enclosure with top-loading jacks to take up less pedalboard real estate. What are you waiting for, sound clips?
