Overdrives & Distortions are some of the very defining and building blocks of a Rig and as the saying goes, “there is nothing new under the sun“, the building blocks of these effects are nothing but a preamp circuit with clipping stage. Our philosophy of focusing on fundamentals made us to employ the minimalist approach to retain as much dynamics & guitar interaction as possible with the effect unit.
The design of dope drive took inspiration from classic vintage Muffs which defined the rock era. We took our usual HiFi approach and upgraded the circuit by using precision & hand selected components.
In front of a tube amp, and even a solid state amp, you can get an unmatched huge sound experience. The high quality circuit & low noise components keep the pedal ultra quiet and high grade sheet metal enclosure shields from interferences.
The amount of singing sustain delivered by the unit is phenomenal and when pushed further by a compressor, overdrive or linear boost it gives you unbelievable experience, only heard to be believed.
The unit features extremely versatile 2 tone controls, the tone control knob & a toggle switch to select 2 subtle mid boosts.
One very distinguishing feature of the pedal is despite being a high gain unit it is the quietest distortion we have ever made or compared across. The credit goes to the selection of high precision, audiophile grade, hand-selected components and hand-wired as per best practices.
Check out the demo video to get the feel of it, however and aural experience in our opinion is something which can only be experienced in full when you do it live.
