Here's what Browne Amplification say about the Carbon Overdrive

We carefully extracted the Blue side of our Protein Dual Overdrive and gave it the ability to stand on its own for a solo mission. The Carbon is inspired by a legendary circuit that we obsessively tweaked to address some of the issues we had with the original design.

The 'blue side' is based on a modern classic blues overdrive pedal, used by countless guitar players worldwide but perhaps most famously by John Mayer on his  “Continuum” album. We addressed issues like the lack of output, while also tweaking the tone control and experimenting with components in order to find his favourite version of this much-adored circuit.

Many pedals offer different clipping choices, internal dip switches, and trimmers that give you endless options. We found this to be problematic because, for us, it can create option fatigue. The Carbon is designed to be an incredibly versatile pedal without any switches or internal pots to tweak.

The higher you have the gain set, the brighter the Carbon will be. If you happen to be running the gain on the higher side you may find yourself dialling back the tone control. This is normal! The Carbon has massive output potential which will give you the ability to turn the drive way down and use it as a clean boost.
