The Midnight Drive is a transparent overdrive. It is not going to change your tone (unless you want to), it is just going to make it dirtier. Also, is a dual pedal for harp. It has an Overdrive and a Booster. The goal of the Midnight Drive is to give you the break-up of a small tube amp out of a clean amp, at any volume. The sound of the Midnight Drive is based on a special type of

transistors called FET. I selected those because they sound and react a lot like tubes! The pedals work on a regular 9v power supply, but internally the voltage is raised up to 18v to give you the maximum headroom and dynamic range.


Any power supply designed to work at 9v with a negative center.

Are the pedals true bypass? Yes, the Harp Mojo (and all Rods pedals) are true bypass.

I´m a harp player. I play early electric Chicago blues, so I am always looking for the sound of the classic records that we love. I have recorded a couple of albums with my band Rod and the Chucos Suaves. You can check it on Youtube, they are free!

In 2020, due to the quarantine imposed by Covid-19, there was plenty of time, so I decided to fulfill a long-cherished dream: build my own electric toys!

I researched how to build effects pedals and put together several (more than I needed, of course) and little by little I began to understand how everything worked. Building guitar effects and trying to get them to work on the harmonica was my favorite hobby that pandemic year.

The pedals that I offer here are the result of that hobby mixed with the passion about the amplified harmonica tone and my experience as a gigging musician.

Each pedal has been designed by me and tested by various harmonica players around the world. Each pedal is built by hand at home, one small component at a time, and each pedal is tested by me before shipping.

Thank you for your interest  and support to Rod Harp Effects!



All pedals have a full 5-year warranty.
The warranty applies to the pedal, not the original buyer, so even if you got the pedal used you can still apply to it.

The warranty covers any malfunction of the mechanical parts and the circuit. The repair is free, you only have to pay the associated shipping costs.

The full warranty is void if the pedal has been modified in any way, or if it has suffered direct damage due to user negligence (spilled beer, for example).

If the warranty is voided, we will repair the pedal, but you will have to pay the cost of the spare parts in addition to the associated shipping costs.

Great amp replacement for small gigs

I bought this pedal to replace an amp, as this means I can travel to a gig with all my equipment via train. I go from this pedal straight to PA.

I chose the Midnight Drive originally because of its uncomplicated power requirements compared to other harp overdrive pedals, and I am very glad I chose this!
The pedal feels very solid and well made.

I play blues (not a professional), some pieces with just the boost for a more acoustic sound, and other pieces with a dirtier overdriven sound. This pedal works great! It helps me cut through the band when I need it to.
Obviously it's not the same as playing through an amp, but it sounds great and the tradeoff in transport weight is enourmous!
