Clay Jones Overdrive

Ah, the wonderful world of boutique pedals - this boutique box is actually an almost direct copy of another boutique box - the Langdraff Dynamic Overdrive - which itself is an almost direct copy of a Tube Screamer. The differences are enough to warrant its own listing though.

The component changes in this take it away from TS territory - not too far, maybe just around the corner - but far enough. It just has a bit more oomph about it than a typical TS, which is why originals go for mucho moolah.

Built on the latest Tube Screamer PCB. Why? Because you can.

Designed for PCB-mounted vertical pin pots which have round shafts, but you can wire in 'normal' pots if you prefer. If you want the kit pre-built this is only available with the vertical mount pots.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.

Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will take a battery. Knobs are not included.

Builds are only available with full kits including enclosures and vertical-mount pots. Please choose appropriate knobs.

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 37mm

Just.....awesome! 5 product stars
"A tight build, but well worth it. The best sounding overdrive I've tried. It's knocked my TS, and ZW44 off the board. It'll go from crisp, clear, and loud to full on actual distortion. Simply put, it's the (fuzz) dog's nuts! Thank you Fuzzdog!" Ian - 03/09/2018
Cant stop playing with it 5 product stars
"Sounds so sweeeeet. Definitely a step up from a regular tubescreamer. I find it to be more dynamic, a bit more harmonic, and a super sweet crunch when maxed. I cant stop jamming on this thing." Bill - 13/09/2017
Review update 5 product stars
"Just a little update to my previous review... I've been using my CJOD for nearly a year now and have found it to be a very reliable pedal, no problems whatsoever. I ended up changing the IC to a JRC 4558, which has a slightly different tone colour to the one supplied. This pedal has definitely been a worthy investment, so thanks again Poodle's Pedals! I have a youtube video where I'm playing my CJOD, here's the link:" Joe Sullivan - 23/02/2014
A must-have pedal. 5 product stars
"A truly excellent kit as ever from the mighty Poodle and I have to say, this sounds absolutely amazing. Way more grunt to it than a standard TS and through a JCM900 this thing positively soars. Not usually one for commenting on these things but thanks to the continuous, amazing support from Lee and the sheer brilliance of this kit, I really just felt the need to comment. Respect."

Highly Recommended 5 product stars
"This is a great kit which has taken me 3 hours to build. I'm pretty much a beginner at DIY pedals having only made some simple boosts on vero board, so I'm thrilled this has worked first time. It sounds much better than my modded TS9, warmer and more touch-responsive but still has that Texas tone. Also, the speedy delivery was excellent. Thank you very much Poodle Pedals, I will certainly be ordering more :D" Joe Sullivan - 25/06/2013
