The new Analog Alien Bucket Seat Overdrive features the same Rumble Drive circuit that is found in their 5-star pedal the “Rumble Seat” – which is herald by artists like James Burton (Elvis Presley), Stevie Wonder, and Joe Walsh (The Eagles, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band). Everything from mild overdrive to a full on high gain assault is possible with the Bucket Seat.
The sound of the Bucket Seat is never harsh or brittle. It has a smooth break up and retains a lot of the guitar’s dynamics even at high overdrive settings. At a Gain setting of 2 o’clock, the Bucket Seat reaches its maximum gain. Once you go past this point the overdrive tone becomes more complex and harmonically rich. Turn it all the way up (clockwise) and you’ll get a very sweet overdrive with plenty of harmonics! When the “Gain” control is turned off (counter-clockwise), the Bucket Seat produces very little gain. At this setting you can use the Bucket Seat as a master output and tone control. If you want to introduce just a little drive, try increasing the “Gain” control up (clockwise) a little. This will give your guitar’s sound attitude and really make it jump out of your amp!
The Rumble Drive simulates a vintage Marshall 69 Plexi amp.
Output – The Output knob controls the direct output level when the Rumble Drive is engaged. The more you turn it up (clockwise), the more output you send to your amp.
Tone – The Tone knob control is very versatile and sensitive. You can dial in the right amount of treble or bass depending on the guitar you use and its pickups.
Gain – The Gain knob controls the amount of gain you send to the circuit.
