What's the difference between Distortion and Overdrive? They both sound really similar to me, can anyone tell me what's specifically different?
Distortion is louder than overdrive i think.=/
i think overdrive is what you use when you need that extra push.
Yeah........its like thunderstruck by AC/DC I cant use distortion i have to use overdrive because it has that extra crunch sound to it.
Distortion is digitalized overdrive as far as I know. You can't make distortion from a tube amp, It's overdrive.
Overdrive is the effect of old amps being pushed too hard and breaking up and distortion is distorting the signal. Or something along those lines.
