Bondi Effects Sick As Overdrive Mk II – No Longer Available

Transparent overdrive pedal
MFR# Sick As Overdrive Mk II

Product Description

Looking for a crystal clear, organic overdrive that sounds like your amp but more of it? Then the Bondi Effects Sick As Overdrive MKII may be the pedal for you!


  • Hand-selected audiophile components
  • Two unique voices of natural tube-like overdrive
  • Ultra-transparent clean boost
  • Powerful active EQ controls capable of up to 15dB of boost or cut.
  • Can operate as a clean boost, overdrive, or a blend of the two.
  • Voltage boosted internally to an 18 volt spread for increased headroom and clarity.
  • Soft-Touch True Bypass
  • Powered by any negative tipped “Boss” type 9v DC power supply
  • Built by hand in the USA

The Sick As can operate in three different modes; clean boost, low gain or high gain. Turn the gain knob all the way down and you are in clean boost mode. As the gain is increased, overdrive is gradually mixed in to the clean signal until it is completely overdriven. This booster is so transparent in fact, that if the EQ and level knobs are set at noon, you will not be able to tell the difference between your bypassed and effected tone. The low gain and high gain modes can be selected with the toggle switch. Up for high gain and down for low gain. The high gain mode is a more compressed overdrive that is reminiscent of a vintage Tweed amplifier, while the low gain mode is a very transparent and open sounding lower gain overdrive with a little more bass content.

The tone controls are active and function in all three modes. Inspired by an old HiFi circuit, Bondi Effects carefully tuned each band to the ideal voicings for electric guitar. When set at noon they are flat; turn them clockwise and you boost the frequency up to 15dB, counter clockwise and you cut up to 15dB. This versatility not only allows you to cut through in a mix but also to fine tune the overdrive for different guitars or amplifiers. Fatten up single coils to make them full and rich, or brighten humbuckers to make them sparkle and shine.

Bondi Effects pulled out all the stops with this one, and to top it all off it comes standard with soft-touch true
bypass switching! Get yours TODAY! We guarantee you’ll say “This overdrive is SICK AS!”

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
