Korg OD-S Analog Drive Pedal Hands-On Review

2020 NAMM Show: The latest loopop video takes a look at the new Korg OD-S analog drive pedal.

The OD-S is based around a Nutube analog triode vacuum tube. Nutube technology, introduced in 2015, is essentially a ‘vacuum tube on a chip’, designed to offer the harmonic effects that vacuum tubes are known for, but in a compact, low-power form factor.

Here’s what they have to say about the video:

“During the show I built Korg’s new OD-S analog drive pedal – this video is a quick documentation of the build process as well as a test drive (pun unavoidable) with both a synth (Microfreak) and Guitar.”

Topics covered:

0:00 Intro
0:30 The Build
1:25 The Controls
2:10 Synth test
4:15 Wide on/off
5:10 Guitar test
6:50 Slightly subtle
7:30 Various tones

  1. This is over-priced for a DIY pedal product !

    I wish these review posts would write up a summary, pros/cons etc. in text form instead of video.
