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.
