Greer Amps Introduces the Southland Harmonic Overdrive


Athens, GA (September 24, 2014) — We are happy to announce the release of a new product. The Southland Harmonic Overdrive is our newest offering, in the Greer Amps line. Building on the Lightspeed platform, we have developed what we believe to be the best overdrive on the market. The Lightspeed was built with the specific purpose of being a light to mild overdrive. The Southland is the next logical step for the Lightspeed platform—more gain, a focused midrange (not that annoying “hump”), and a bit of presence on top of the signal, to help cut through the mix. This pedal, like the Lightspeed, is touch sensitive, responds to pick attack, and has dynamics that just won’t stop. On top of that, we’ve selected a chip to drive the Southland that takes it to the next level.

The Southland is available for dealers to pre-order now. We will be officially releasing these, for shipping, and publishing them on our website on October 14, 2014. We will be building up a stockpile of these units, in hopes that we won’t get bogged down on the production side of things with the Southland.

Curtis Kent: Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps

Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps

This is a demo of the Lightspeed Organic Overdrive – Greer Amps.


From their Website:
“The Lightspeed Organic Overdrive is a very natural sounding overdrive. Why “organic”? Well, simply put, it’s the clearest, most natural feeling, and best overdrive we’ve heard for the player looking for a natural drive tone. Blending with the tone of the guitar and amplifier, this pedal has rich harmonics and complex but smooth clipping. The Lightspeed Overdrive is sensitive to pick attack and has a different “feel” than other overdrives. The Lightspeed can be set to be “transparent,” but can also drive your signal to the edge.”
