Pete’s Gear: Boss OD-1 Overdrive pedal

Beginning in 1999, Pete began using a Boss OD-1 overdrive pedal to drive the Fender Vibro-King amps at moderate stage volumes. The pedal was paired with an MXR Dyna Comp compression pedal (until 2004, when he began using an MXR Super Comp).

In August 2006, the Boss overdrive pedal was incorporated into the Pete Cornish Custom Design custom effects board in place of his previous stand-alone foot pedal effects.

Pete placed the pedals to the right of his microphone stand.
