1981 Inventions DRV gold/cream

The new standard !Runs on 9v standard (boss style) power. Battery clip or power supply is not included. An isolated power supply is recommended. In uniquely designed steel enclosure made with quality components throughout. The goal was to spare no expense. You can realise that sometimes in the world of guitar gear, there isn’t always one answer in choosing the best components and designs, so the designer just picked his favourites. This includes Switchcraft 11 open frame jacks and a super quiet soft touch switching system via an internal relay. This was a long project for the better part of three years, as a collaboration and with engineering by Jon Ashley of Bondi Effects. We feel that the pedal is unique in design and sonically unlike anything we have ever heard, especially in the lower gain and boost settings. There is a subtlety that feels more like a vintage pedal than a modification of a classic. There are two circuits present in the pedal, one distortion and one preamp boost, running at 18v via an internal voltage regulator. This pedal is extremely useful tool for capturing a lot of different types of sounds. Extremely sweet sounding throughout, especially for heavy and complex chords. There is a midrange punch that you will love and a warmth and thickness that reminds of a ribbon mic.
