A distinct overdrive with lots of definition and headroom: EHX’s Mike Matthews kept hearing about a pedal called the Klon Centaur that was making waves amongst the pros, but was only available at a high price ($1000+ for an original, $300+ for handmade clones). Mike’s solution was to have Electro Harmonix make their own version that starving musicians could afford. Thus the Soul Food pedal was born.The Soul Food is a transparent overdrive with subtle features that sound amazing. Boosted power rails provide tons of headroom and increased definition. At low gain settings it makes an awesome-sounding clean boost. This pedal works best with tube amps, as the wide dynamic range and transparent drive will push the preamp tubes in your amp and result in authentic tube distortion. But the best feature of the EHX Soul Food is that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to own one!
