The King of Gear Oxford Drive guitar pedal is a unique overdrive, designed and produced by TKOG in New York, who specialize in re-creating the sounds of the famous UK rock band Radiohead. It is a clone of a certain classic, UK shred-tastic, high-gain distortion pedal, made famous by guitarist Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead and many others. Plus, this pedal also comes with a built-in bonus... a Gov'nor-inspired LED-clipping mode, with more gain, and more volume. The famous Guv'nor pedal was used by Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien, also of Radiohead. The Oxford Drive pedal is true bypass, with top-mounted jacks, in a 1590B enclosure.


CONTROLS:

Clipping Diode Switch: The right position selects standard diode clipping. Diode clipping gives a standard compressed distortion sound. The left position selects LED (red) clipping, inspired by the Guv’nor pedal. LED clipping gives a more open distortion sound with less clipping more output volume available.

Contour: Not a mid control. Contour controls the overall EQ shape of the pedal, adjusting both the treble and mid frequencies. More mids and less treble to the left, less mids and more treble to the right.

Treble: Controls the level of treble frequencies. The amount of treble is highly dependent on the setting of the contour control, so the treble control will likely need to be readjusted when the contour control is adjusted.

Bass: Controls the level of bass frequencies.

Gain: Controls the level of distortion. “Stock” maximum gain is around 4 o’clock.

Volume: Controls overall volume of the pedal. Unity volume is around noon, but depends upon the gain setting and clipping mode. A large boost is available, so be careful when selecting a high setting, especially in the LED-clipping mode.


RECOMMENDED SETTINGS:

For all settings, set volume to taste...

For a traditional 90s lead sound, use stock clipping and set bass at ~2 o’clock, contour at 7 o’clock, treble at ~2 o’clock gain at 3 o’clock. Note that the gain and volume controls both offer an extended range.

For a 90s rhythm sound, use LED clipping and set bass at 12 o’clock, contour at 3 o’clock, treble at ~4 o’clock, gain at ~1 o’clock.

For a classic overdrive sound, use stock clipping and set bass at 8 o’clock, contour at 9 o’clock, treble at 3 o’clock, and gain ~12 o’clock.

For a low-gain ambient/shoegaze sound, use stock clipping and set bass at 11 o’clock, contour at 12 o’clock, treble at 4 o’clock, gain at 10 o’clock. Works best with dynamic arpeggios or chords and delay/reverb.

For a heavy scooped sound, use stock clipping and set bass at 11 o’clock, contour at 3 o’clock, treble at ~2 o’clock, gain at 3 o’clock. To ensure that you still cut through the mix with a scooped setting, you may need to tweak the contour setting to adjust to your amp’s mids.

For a blues lead sound, use LED clipping and set bass at 12 o’clock, contour at 7 o’clock, treble at ~8 o’clock, gain at ~2 o’clock.
