Designing MojoMojo Overdrive was both very simple and very complex. We knew what we wanted from the start: A pedal that sounds like an amp, with a very open character and little compression allowing even the most subtle of your playing to shine through. We basically set out to capture lightning in a bottle with a clarity that even allowed for complex chords to stand out - did we succeed? Well, plug it in, play one lick, look us in the eye and try to tell us we didn't!
- Increased circuit board voltage for extra headroom
- Precise tone controls
- Voicing switch
Joltin’ the Juice
One of the reasons why we've achieved such a dynamic pedal is the fact that we use a special circuit that ramps up the voltage to more than 3-4 times the amount of your typical drive pedals. However, we don't use this added gain to squeeze more overdrive/distortion out of the pedal, but to dramatically increase the headroom and dynamics.The result? The most alive overdrive you have ever heard and a pedal that defines all that is magic about overdriven sounds.
MojoMojo is a very musical pedal, but it needs direction. It'll be up to you to integrate it into your gear via the tone controls. Luckily, MojoMojo sounds great right off the bat and dialing in what you want, from added punch or body to added beef on your leads, is fun and easy.
In essence, an overdrive is something you get from a fully cranked tube amp working hard. Simple, but so dastardly hard to capture. MojoMojo actually succeeded doing this in the most natural and musical of ways and is in fact so 'fat sounding' we added a voicing switch for backing off the bass a bit when used with dark sounding guitars.
Backstage Pass - All Access
It's not an easy task, but MojoMojo helps you off to the best possible start with its juicy sounds and great controls.

Artists Using MojoMojo Overdrive
With the amp on the verge of breaking up, the MojoMojo easily kicked it over the top, giving me a very warm punch. Turning up the Drive lent a light, vintage distortion. Boosting the Treble to the 2-3 o’clock position gave a biting crunch with a hint of cranked Vox AC30. In general, though, the MojoMojo is a very transparent pedal, almost like a second stage of gain for your rig.Check out the full review by Premier Guitar
Delivering valve-like overdrive or a clean(ish) boost to push your amp further, the pedal responds sympathetically to playing dynamics and has a certain clarity that lets chords ring through with individual notes intact. Lovely transparent overdrive that's like adding an extra channel to your amp.Check out the full review by Guitarist
The TC tone gods have answered my prayers! Usually anything that claims to have “mojo” doesn’t have any ‘mojo’ whatsoever. Fortunately, this little brown pedal packs the juju in and then some.Check out the full review by Delicious Audio
MojoMojo's moderate distortion character in ability to really finetune tones make it a very flexible pedal. The tone controls are very effective, even at lower volumes.
