As you may or may not know, it gets cold up here in Montreal. We’re hardy enough to grin and bear it—don’t get me wrong—but every now and again even we need to warm up a bit. And there’s nothing that makes you feel the heat quite like watching Hot Ones on YouTube.
One day it dawned on us—why not make an overdrive that would clock in at a couple million Scoville units? A couple-hundred burnt-out taste buds later, Los Calientes was born.
Los Calientes takes inspiration from the extremely tasty (and legendary) OD-1 overdrive and uses an RC4558 IC to serve up imminently usable drive tone that goes from transparent to crunchy with the turn of a knob.
No matter your palate, Los Calientes has the tonal flavor for you.

KNOBS, SWITCHES, ETC.
Vol Knob:You’ve heard that song “Pump Up The Volume”? This works like that. Need more? Turn it to the right—or “Pump It,” if you like. Bandmates/neighbors complaining? Tell them to suck it up. If that fails, turn this knob to the left.
Gain Knob: Think of this like adjusting the spice on your hot sauce. Wanna feel some tingle? Try this fella around noon. Wanna things so spicy you’ll want to slap your momma? Turn it to the right.
Input/Output:Instrument or other pedal goes on the right side, Amplifier or other pedal goes on the left side.
True bypass Footswitch:Turns the effect on and off.
