Free The Tone : MS-SOV Special Overdrive (MS-1V Matt Schofield Signature Model Ltd.)
This is the third version of the mighty SOV Overdrive that I’ve been able to try. The first was the Providence SOV-2; then came the Free The Tone version which had creamier highs; and finally this one, the Matt Schofield Signature version which, to my ears, has a little more headroom than the two aforementioned versions and cleaner or brighter highs. I like it a lot.
Here it is with a Redhouse Strat-style guitar and a Palmer DREI amp in various output modes. Great stuff, Yuki and Matt!
