Phat Axx in Diamond Plate Case
(Click for a close-up)

Looking to recreate the creamy, buttery tone of Eric Johnson in one pedal, Indyguitarist has comes up with the "Phat Axx" Overdrive.

Controls include a bass boost switch, volume and gain knobs, and a tone knob that acts as more of a 'presence' control than the traditional tone control found in most overdrives. The Phat Axx is completely true bypass and includes a 9v "Boss style" power jack.

There are two versions of the pedal being offered - one of them is in a diamond plate enclosure, while the cheaper version is in a hammond box. The same circuit is inside however. The diamond plate enclosure is a bit more expensive since the case alone takes several hours to fabricate from start to finish.

  • Bass boost/cut switch
  • Blue Led
  • Completely True Bypass
  • Optional Custom made Diamond Plate/Poplar enclosure with copper shielding for extra noise protection


  • Diamond plate enclosure: $169
  • MXR style/plain enclosure: $129
