The Lovepedal Kanji Eternity Overdrive is one of many available variations on the original Ibanez Lime Green Tube Screamer circuit. The Tube Screamer pedal is an overdrive pedal that got really popular after Stevie Ray Vaughan started using it in the mid-80s. The main characteristic of these pedals is the mid-range hump which really helps the guitar cut through in the mix – especially for soloing.
The thing I like most about this variation is that it manages to preserve the low end. I got really turned off to using my old one because it was all midrange and no highs or low which made the sound very two dimensional. This pedal, in contrast, sounds much fuller and is very sensitive to dynamics so the sound really jumps out at you when you dig in.
