What Is It?

The PastFx Canberra is a faithful reproduction of the Buffalo FX Carrera overdrive. Named after the Australian capital, the Canberra overdrive is our lowest-gain offering within the Spectrum Collection. The pedal excels as a clean to mildly crunchy drive, boost, and all-around tone shaper, favorably articulating low and midrange frequencies to provide warmth and presence even when playing clean or with the gain set to the edge of breakup. When cranked, the Canberra can even exhibit boosting characteristics popularly associated with the mythical Horse-themed overdrive of pedal lore. The key element of the pedal is how it “feels” while playing; notes are smooth, dynamic, and enriched with slight texture as the user adjusts the controls. A perfect foundational overdrive for stacking layers of dirt or as a tastefully blended low gainer and boost on its own.
