Mick and Daniel visit the overdrive world this week – There were tons of combinations to test out. “classic” modern overdrives, through some, without question, classic amps. The point being to let you see how certain types work through certain amps, without trying to encompass every variety there is out there; A slice of classic overdrive history, if you will. They acknowledge that there are many, many choices out there, but the principles should remain the same. You should easily be able to see how to apply it to your own rig.

As always, they’re awesome and funny, and let’s face it, very, very British!
