While many overdrives emphasize particular frequencies, the Forza gives you a more even spread across the frequency range. The voicing is very open, and it sounds just as good through a clean channel or hitting an already-overdriven amp. In addition to up to 37dB of gain there’s a three-band EQ for controlling the lows, mids and high end, and the Level control has plenty of range to allow use as a clean boost too. The Forza uses a glass diode, back-to-back stack overdrive circuit. It features True Bypass switching and is made in the USA.
Think of this as “a little more” on top of a clean amp channel: plenty of body with a little midrange dip to smooth out the tone. This setting sounds especially jangly with a Stratocaster.
Use this setting with a clean amp channel for vintage crunch tone. The mid-range response is flat with lower bass for more focus, and it features maximum drive with a slight high-end boost. This setting pushes your guitar into a bright, tubey growl and works equally well with single coil and humbucking pickups.
Use this setting with a clean amp channel for a classic American rhythm sound. The boosted bass and completely scooped mids give a thick tone, and the wide open gain gives you plenty of power.
Tight Metal Boost
Use this setting in front of a high-gain amp to tighten up the bottom end and add thickness and compression to the mids while keeping pick articulation clear.
Use this setting on top of your overdriven or distorted rhythm sound to add punch and sustain, or to turn a great rhythm sound into a great lead sound.
