A very expressive overdrive, the MojoMojo is very responsive to the way you play, as many great players, such as Vernon Reid, Larry Mitchell, Johnny Hiland, and Boz Boorer have found.
The TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive is designed with extra headroom and precise control in mind. Made in Denmark, the pedal features an inner circuit that boosts the voltage three to four times the amount of most overdrive pedals. This extra voltage is what adds the headroom. This is similar to some other pedals, wherein you can swap out a 9-volt adapter for an 18-volt adapter, to gain more headroom.
The MojoMojo is powered with a 9-volt battery or an external 9-volt power supply. You can adjust the sound of the pedal using a Drive control knob, a Level control knob, and High and Low tone control knobs. There is also a center-mounted Voice switch which shifts the emphasis on the midrange and reduces the bass slightly.
The MojoMojo features true bypass switching for no loss of tone. It also features analog-dry-through circuitry, meaning the dry part of your signal is never affected by the electronics. In addition, the pedal is very responsive. It will react to the way you play and to the volume control on the guitar. As a result, this can create a very expressive overdrive.
