Reviewed: Outlaw Effects Cactus Juice Overdrive
Outlaw Effects are a fairly recent entrant to the guitar and bass pedal arena, boasting a range of almost 20 micro-sized pedals. After spending some time with their Tubescreamer-inspired Cactus Juice Overdrive, I’m as big a fan of the pedal as I am of their jokes (their tag line is “there’s a new sheriff in tone”, and their entire range is creatively western-style named. Brilliant.) While some manufacturers might blatantly ripoff another famed pedal, the Cactus Juice retains its own character of Tubescreamer, and has some handy additions that turn it into its own micro-sized beast.
