SoopaCharged Overdrive

Beautiful little high gain drive pedal to really push your amp.

The cascaded MosFet gain stages give a huge amount of breakup without the need for diode clipping, while keeping noise to a minimum.

The contour control resembles an amp presence control in operation, dictating the amount of punch you're throwing down the cable.

Though not officially touted as such, I'd say this is the right direction to be looking if you want to fill the Orange amp-emulation gap.

Not much else to tell you other than it'd look good in an orange enclosure.

The PCB is laid for vertical-mount pots, but you can also use standard pots and mount them with snipped component legs or header pins. All of these mean the circuit will be mounted sturdily in the enclosure.. Of course, it can be conventionally wired too. Note: if you select vertical-mount pots these have a round shaft, so take that into consideration when buying knobs - you'll need some that fit with a grub-screw.

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.

Gritty 5 product stars
"Very nice gainy overdrive. gritty and almost fuzz like when maxed. Really reminds me of an old OR120. Not too bad with the gain dialed back, but where this shines is when everything is full tilt. Will definitely use this on my board. Love it!" Bill - 13/11/2017
Doomverdrive heaven! 5 product stars
"This is the perfect overdrive if you want massive gain, girth and throaty growl. It borders on fuzz on full tilt, but the tone and texture is so well defined it never goes in to splatty compression or vacuum cleaner distortion drone. It sounds like my old Orange OR120 OD when cranked, lotsa valve-voiced vocal midtones and crunchy harmonics. "Contour"-knob reminds me of Orange's "Drive" knob. Not a proper tone control, but the pedal is so perfectly voiced you won't miss one ..." Tjærand Matre - 16/02/2015
