Mad Professor / Skyblue Overdrive / Skyblue / Effect Pedal For Sale
SKY BLUE OVERDRIVE
BJF design fine-tuned overdrive pedal
Hand-made in Finland premium quality overdrive pedal.
Mad Professor Sky Blue Overdrive (SBOD) is a very unique four knob pedal designed to overdrive already distorted amplifiers as well as provide light overdrive or soft distortion on clean sounds.
Special feature on this pedal is that you can adjust the feel and dynamics with Texture and Z knobs.
The Texture allows changing how and when circuit distorts as well as adjusting overall EQ.
The Z is a control that creates an adjustable load to the instrument connected to the SBOD input. With standard passive pickup loaded guitars dialing this control will adjust the upper resonant peak of the pickups. It also affects the taper of the volumecontrol on the guitar, adjusting how the tone cleans up when using the guitar volume knob.
Like all Mad Professor pedals SBOD is hand made in Finland using only premium components, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.

VOLUME:sets the output volume of the effect
DISTORT.: controls the distortion or overdrive effect
Z: is a control that creates an adjustable load to the instrument connected to the SBOD input. With standard guitars dialing this control will adjust the upper resonant peak of the pickups and also affect the taper of the volumecontrol on the guitar for easy setting of clean to distorted just from the volume control of guitar. This effect is masked if SBOD is driven by a buffered output such as from another guitar pedal or from active pickups
TEXTURE: allows changing how and when the circuit distorts as well as adjusting overall EQ. Dialing this control appears to adjust midrange, while it gives this impression from adjusting compression. Turning CCW gives more saturated effect that is easily distorted, turning CW gives a slight treble boost and less compression
(compression is used here to describe density of distortion since overall sound may be distorted throughout the dial)
Supply voltage range: 7,5 to 18VDC
Current consumption at 9VDC: 5 mA
Input inpedance: 227K TO 10kOhm's (adjustable with the Z-control)
Output impedance: 251K Ohm's

Harri Koski: Guitarist, marketing, cordinating the production, helping hand.
Harri has been playing guitar since mid 70´s and his serious hobby turned into a business when he started Custom-Sounds (www.custom-sounds.com) in 1996. Custom-Sounds was a high-end guitar gear company from the beginning and it was one of the first “boutique" guitar shops on internet. His co-operation with Bjorn Juhl started the BJF pedals business and soon these two soul brothers were talking about the ultimate amplifier. Bjorn Juhl and Harri had the mad idea about designing the ultimate guitar tube amplifier and to make it right here in Scandinavia. Bjorn put on his propel-hat and Harri put all his energy and money into this project. Soon we found the right people to work with us and the world got a brand new amplifier that was not a clone of any vintage amp as these modern hand-wired amps often are. Harri has a collection of various Gibson guitars and early JV Squier Fenders and plugs these into his serial no: 000 Mad Professor prototype head that is played loud almost every day.
Tapani Santanen: Guitarist, industrial designer, interior architect SIO.
