News Freekish Blues Alpha Drive

Working with East coast singer-songwriter, guitarist and Berklee College of Music guitar professor Thaddeus Hogarth, Freekish Blues has developed an overdrive pedal.


Thaddeus has been using Dumble or “D-Style” amps in his lineup for some time. He wanted a versatile pedal that could deliver those tones along with a range of tones from rock to blues, from classic to contemporary and fusion.



Here is what Hogarth had to say:

“I had been using Dumble-inspired amps for many years, but my love for the traditional sounds of the Tube Screamer and even the sound of a cranked Deluxe Reverb fueled my desire to create a pedal that covered all the bases. I think of this pedal as an extension of my instrument rather than an effect. You can leave it on and turn the OD control all the way down to get what amounts to a clear boost, or you can dial in varying degrees of overdrive all the way to full fat saturation. The overdrive and the volume control are interactive, like tube amplifiers with a gain and master control.”

Pricing & Availability

The pedal is handmade in the USA and sells direct for $168.
