    Excelente overdrive, very fat!

    Lovepedal Lovepedal Kanji 9 Overdrive PedalPublished on 02/13/12 at 04:54
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    OD 9 Kanji Eternity Lovepedal brand, handmade in the USA.
    3 knobs: Level, Glass, Gain, and two toggle switches: "Tone" and "Clipping".
    The pedal appears a little mysterious, with nothing written on its surface apart from a nice kanji!
    9V power supply at the top (well done!), the pedal has a very solid feel.
    Perfect so far!

    UTILIZATION

    The "Glass" control, characteristic of Lovepedal's Eternity OD pedal, is well-conceived and is in fact a treble booster: you start with the knob at 0 and increase it (clockwise) until you get the highs you want.
    The two switches are, in my opinion, a sort of smoke screen, because while the pedal sounds great with both switches in the central po…

    UTILIZATION

    The "Glass" control, characteristic of Lovepedal's Eternity OD pedal, is well-conceived and is in fact a treble booster: you start with the knob at 0 and increase it (clockwise) until you get the highs you want.
    The two switches are, in my opinion, a sort of smoke screen, because while the pedal sounds great with both switches in the central position, the other two positions don't really add much. But they can be useful for players who like to tweak their tone.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Here is the most important point: excellent!
    The sound is fat the way I like it, the reserve gain and volume is sufficient,  crunch is heavy and solid output! 
    The dynamics are great, you do not lose bass, the guitar's sound is perfectly maintained, in short it is very good.
    Depending on the guitar you use, you can play anything, country, Led Zep-style hard rock, the tones of ZZ Top or Lynyrd Skynyrd, the blues of course, in other words  this pedal is plenty versatile!
    on the other hand for those seeking a low gain OD, move on, there's nothing to see here. The Kanji 9 is made, I think, to send a minimum (in whatever settings "clen boost" with the gain to 0 its still happening)!

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is the upscale boutique, its has a certain price, but its worth it, I like this brand bcp, their OD are all very good and source!
    Is the price a bit high but hey, there are fortunately a lot in occas.

    Overdrive with options!

    Lovepedal Lovepedal Kanji 9 Overdrive PedalPublished on 04/26/11 at 11:14
    This is a new company that I have just discovered. I've been searching out different companies' pedals for a while, as I'm getting tired of hearing the same boss tones all the time. This one is an ovedrive, but that's a bit misleading as it actually has a lot of tonal range, and has a little bit of compression thrown in for good measure. It really can go from a light overdrive to a lighter distortion depending on your choice of gear.

    UTILIZATION

    It has the typical volume, drive, and tone knobs that you'd expect, but also adds some really cool extra features in the two toggle-switches. The first one switches tonal range (it's a three-way switch so you can get a detailed tone selec…

    UTILIZATION

    It has the typical volume, drive, and tone knobs that you'd expect, but also adds some really cool extra features in the two toggle-switches. The first one switches tonal range (it's a three-way switch so you can get a detailed tone selection between that and the knob.) It also has another toggle switch that changes between a relatively straight, dynamic signal, and a more compressed one allowing for more dynamics or smoothness, depending on what you need.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This pedal is interesting, in that it really can do a whole lot of different tones. With a Strat or Tele, it can do anything from a mild, slightly gainy boost, to a warm overdrive, even a ripping high pitched rock sound. With a Les Paul, it can get a great Smooth, creamy lead tone, and with another distortion can really tear things up. The added tone switch really almost makes it three different overdrive pedals, as the tonal difference can be that big. The compression switch, while not always necessary for me, does make it easier to use if you're going for a clean boost for a solo or something, but I find that for rock music I tend not to need it. I still like having it though, just in case!
    I'd say that it mostly sounds best on Tube amps, as do most pedals and most instruments really.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, this is a really awesome pedal. It makes me want to sell at least one other one I own! I think the best thing about it is the range of tones. While it has a a few options in terms of sound, I like it because none of them are bad, and all are in fact useful for me quite often. I'm confident that this pedal will have something for just about everyone, assuming you play anything that requires overdrive.
