Greer Southland Harmonic Overdrive Pedal
The Southland Harmonic Overdrive Pedal is derived from the much loved Lightspeed pedal. With more gain, two stages of clipping (utilizing different diode types for each stage of clipping), a focused midrange (not that annoying “hump”), and a bit of presence on top of the signal to help cut through the mix, the Southland is the next logical step in the Lightspeed's evolution. Like the Lightspeed, the Southland Overdrive is very touch sensitive, and responds to pick attack with a wide range of dynamics.
The Southland Harmonic Overdrive will fit with any musical style, and pairs amazingly well with the Greer Lightspeed. If you're looking for two pedals that stack amazingly well together, and can give you a rich, harmonics-filled overdrive tone, then it's time to get a Southland Harmonic Overdrive, AND a Lightspeed Organic Overdrive, today!
Does the Southland Cover the Same Territory as the Lightspeed?
The truth is it doesn't. The re-voicing of the circuit to have more of a focus on the mids, and more presence in the top end, as well as the increase in gain of the circuit, push the Southland to a place that the Lightspeed doesn't get to...one of the primary goals with the development of the Southland was to create a pedal that was different, AND would work well together with the Lightspeed. The combination of the Southland and the Lightspeed make for one of the most heavenly overdriven tones we've ever heard...and we're okay with that!
