The Golden Acorn Overdrive Special is a dynamic overdrive designed to catch a small window in which single notes can be worked to be seemingly clean or distorted. It's important to mention that this distortion is a soft type of distortion, which is essential to make expected note progressions sound seamless. The Golden Acorn Overdrive Special can be used for most music styles except the more aggressive and heavy styles.
