The McGregor Pedal Story (original)

It All Began in Michael’s Studio

McGregor Pedals started one afternoon when Michael Schau , the best guitar player I know (and also one of Western Canada's most respected blues/rock players), told me that he could never find a low-gain overdrive pedal that was truly transparent. I figured it was time to use my physics background; I started researching and came up with a proof of concept as well as a long list of modifications/improvements. Michael heard the proof of concept and said, "don't change a f***ing thing." I ignored him and spent a year making mods, only to end up pretty close to where I started. Serious pros (including Michael) have been playing the Crunch Transparent Overdrive live and in recordings ever since.

"The number one pedal in my board. Absolutely great for getting a fantastic Blues, Roots or low gain rhythm or lead tone without colouring the tone of my guitar or amp. Just an invaluable tone tool for the professional guitarist"--Michael Schau
