The Mobin is a true bypass overdrive with many different tone options. The 3 position diode selector gives you a variety of overdrive tones. In the down position, the pedal has more British style tone. In the up position, the Symetrical Overdrive mode has a tube-like organic sounding overdrive. The middle position is a great mode for a clean boost style overdrive and has more than enough gain to really drive your amp. All of these options make this a dynamic overdrive that will work in any musical situation.
