Tefi Vintage Lab Maccheroni Bros american-voiced dual overdrive (BLACK)


color: black

Maccheroni Bros is a dual overdrive consisting of two distinct circuits, designed to create a wide variety of modern versatile American sounds. The two channels are called Fred and Mike, both Italo-American bricklayers with very different personalities.

  • Fred is lanky and placid, the ‘good’ brother. This channel is based on the proprietary PCN circuit finely calibrated to this role. It gives a creamy sound and dynamic overdrive with sweet midrange sustain that favors a Legato technique.
  • Mike, stout and short-tempered, the ‘indomitable’ brother, produces the rock sound obtainable from a tube amp pulled at full throttle. This channel provides good sustain and presence with clear attack of every note played. Its circuit is based on a J-Fet stadium, combined with other circuits designed to obtain the best overall sonic performance.


TEFI Vintage Lab created this dual overdrive for musicians that need a wide variety of modern American overdrive sounds. You can adjust Fred for delicate distortions and Mike for the more aggressive kind, but their roles can also be switched for maximum versatility.
