The Blessed Mother V2 births a classic overdrive sound, perfecting that raw, yet velvety tone. The range goes deep and wide thanks to the Immaculator function, which allows you to control the transparency of the drive. Dial in sounds from vintage, Tubescreamer-like grit to a heavenly, transparent boost. The Blessed Mother plays well with others and often enhances other drives in the signal chain. Thanks to a supernatural combination of silicon and germanium diodes, the gain has a warm and sweet character to it, just like you would expect from God's mom. Separate treble and bass controls allow you to really tailor the feel to your liking, but this pedal’s speciality is its powerful midrange that can cut through no matter where on the neck you are playing.

Features:

  • Blend knob for added transparency control 
  • Drive, Treble, and Bass controls
  • 9v or 18v DC. (Center Negative)
  • 33mA draw

Why did I wait so long?

I had been eyeballing this pedal since it first appeared to me. I thought, this looks awesome, but do I really need another overdrive.

When I finally got one it was a revelation. I didn't know that dialing in an overdrive could be so inspiring.

Musical and silky

This pedal was a gift from my dad, a fellow guitarist and tone sculptor. I'd read solid reviews, and was expecting to have fun plugging it in, but wasn't expecting the absolute joy I got out of this pedal. I'm able to dial in some velvety overdrive tones I can't get from any other gear. I'm playing a standard tele and a tele deluxe HH into a Vox AC10, and both guitars take to the pedal quite well. I can get those big overtone-rich rhythm chords that remind me of Further Seems Forever or early Dashboard. If I push the pedal at high drive and high volume, and stack it with an under-worked Fulltone OCD, solo tones are massive and sustained. The pedal's sonic signature can be heard even at lower gain settings, but no matter how hard you push, even with the immaculator totally disengaged, you can still hear your guitar's voice and frequency content. It's like everything I hope for out of a tube screamer, but far silkier and more useful. I also love seeing the variety of styles and gear choices from the people writing the rave reviews on this site. I can't think of a style of playing that couldn't utilize this overdrive. Well done Heather, thanks for creating this pedal and putting such care into every step!

A Standout Among OD Pedals

Very versatile overdrive. Was able to dial in many tones that worked for me & then switched amps only to discover so much more. I found that it worked best for me into a somewhat higher gain amp at a semi-clean setting; this pedal was able to warm up & tighten the sound so beautifully. No matter what I plugged it into though, this pedal consistently produced a nice velvety grit that is unique to all of the other overdrives that I own & the Immaculator knob just adds to that uniqueness. A beautiful design as well. Love the leds! May have to get another down the road to have one for each of my pedal loops...

Greatness

I use this pedal to boost my Mesa Express plus head for brutal sounding metal music. It has all the bite you could want with an outstanding note clarity. I was using a JHS Screamer before and while I like that tone, I love this one. I was lucky enough to buy this pedal from my local guitar center!

I love this pedal!

This is the most dynamic pedal I have ever owned. The immaculator makes it really fun to play with blending my amp and the pedal effects, and, at any setting I have tried, it sounds AMAZING.
