What is the difference between Overdrive and Distortion??????

That is all i ask.

Please reply!!!!!!!!!
over drive has a warmer sound like the sound a tube amp makes when you turn up the gain distortion sounds crunchier and if you have enough it can make you single note **** sound screechy

Basically an overdrive pedal pushes the amp harder to create a grittier sound wheras distortion pedals are almost like a proper effect where they distort the signal further.

Look at it as an overdrive is pushing the amps natural sound harder and a distortion pedal alters the signal of the guitar much like a ... phase or echo or whatever other effect
well you see this difference is both require you to use the search bar
