The MXR CSP033 IL Torino Overdrive has been designed in partnership with Carlo Sorasio, Italy’s premier boutique amp and pedal builder.
Versatile, responsive overdrive that offers smooth, organic grit
MXR's Custom Shop series deliver more than your standard pedals, with more care and consideration to the circuitry, wiring and performance to ensure you get the most out of each stomp box. The IL Torino Overdrive is no different, utilising MOSFET technology to recreate the gain structure of classic tube preamps, allowing it to sing with sweet, touch responsive saturation and natural sounding compression. Next, Carlo added a 3-band EQ section so you can finely shape the sound of the overdrive.
Finally, Carlo added a BOOST/OD switch to toggle between Boost Mode—a cleaner sound with just the right amount of compression and sustain—and OD Mode—a more aggressive, cranked tube amp sound.
