633 Engineering X2 Classic Overdrive & X3 Multistage Overdrive
You’ve seen the amps – and here are the overdrive pedals…
We took a look at a pair of 633 Engineering’s Dragonfly amps in issue 475 and now it’s the turn of the 633 pedals, designed – like their stablemates – by Cliff Brown, formerly chief design engineer for Blackstar. The X2 and the X3 are overdrives with similar looks but different applications in terms of their gain range. Both pedals are extremely well put together and nicely laid out with a 633 logo that lights up when they’re powered and a red LED to indicate active status. Both pedals run from standard nine-volt power, which is boosted internally to 18 volts for more headroom.
