hao handbuilt effectsOver the past few years HAO effects have become the pedal of choice for many of Japan’s most respected guitarists. The reasons for this are simple – unparalleled sound quality coupled with simple yet bullet-proof design features that allow the user to focus on creating music rather than tweaking knobs. Painstakingly built by hand, each HAO unit is a cosmetic and functional work of art that features the highest quality components and construction techniques available in order to assure maximum performance. Godlyke is proud to add the line of HAO hand built Effects to our ever-growing roster of quality guitar accessories.

OMEGA DRIVE SIXTEEN (OD-16) OVERDRIVE$260.00
NEW VERSION COMING SOONThe first model in the HAO “Premium Workshop” series of professional-grade effect pedals, the HAO OD-16 is a significant step forward from HAO’s previous product offerings, including a complete cosmetic overhaul. The HAO OD-16 is the culmination of several years of research and development by the new HAO engineering staff, which included significant input from Japanese guitarists and other industry professionals.
Named for its internal voltage doubling circuit, the HAO Omega Drive Sixteen takes an incoming power supply of 9-volts DC and converts it to 16-volts DC, dramatically improving headroom and dynamic responsiveness. The tonal character of the Hao OD-16 is more aggressive than the standard “Tube Screamer” overdrive, consisting of tight and punchy lows and lower mids along with rich, sparkling harmonic overtones. The OD-16 reacts very fast to picking dynamics, offering an incredible touch-responsive overdrive that perfectly complements advanced playing techniques.
HAO Omega Drive Sixteen features include:
- Volume, Tone, and Gain controls
- Direct Tone Bypass Switch
- True Bypass Switching using 3PDT
- Internal voltage doubling circuitry
- Compact, cast-aluminum enclosure
- Ultra-bright status LED
- 9-volt Battery or AC adaptor operation
- 3-year limited warranty
