New Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired overdrive

ToadWorks USA continues to expand its popular range of boutique stompbox effects.

The Texas Flood is a hand-built overdrive pedal based on the classic Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer.

Refinements to this much-imitated circuit include an enhanced low-end response, and increased gain range and an improved tone control.

Stateside, the Texas Flood will retail at $190 RRP.
