After going through countless prototypes for almost a year and a half, John Shanks and our team at Vemuram created the SHANKS ODS-1.
Not only did we work at his studio, but we also had the chance to R&D on the stage of Bon Jovi.
The SHANKS ODS-1 is a beautiful transparent overdrive that one can use to find that perfect balance of overdrive and distortion.
An ideal pedal that you can use in the studio and on stage.
The one go to pedal that can cover most of everything that you need from a mild push to full on for solos.
Controls : LEVEL, GAIN, TONE
Trimmers : SAT(Saturation), BASS
Produced by John Shanks
Collaboration with John Shanks.
An easy to handle overdrive with a wide range in tone.
Equipped with two trimmers lets you control the Bass and the Saturation of the overall tone.
Allowing you to achieve an even more wide variety to your ideal tone.
Inspired by many countless vintage pedals.

"We and the team at Vemuram have spent the last working and prototyping the new ODS-1 pedal. It’s a beautiful transparent overdrive that one can use to find that prefect balance of overdrive and distortion that I can use in the studio and on stage. The one go to that can cover most everything I need, from a mild push to full on for solos. A pedal I’ve been dreaming of for years that’s finally here.”
Controls: Level, Gain, Tone / Bass, SAT(Trimmers)
Terminal: Input, Output
Power : 006P (9 Volt Battery) or 9Volt regulated AC/DC adapter(Center Negative)
All of our pedals are compatible with 18V except for our fuzz pedals.
But we do not recommend using 18V because it is made and designed for 9V.
Please advise we cannot take any responsibilities for any damages using voltages higher than 9V.
