Announcing our new program for 2019, Pedal of the Month!
Each month in 2019 we will be releasing a new pedal, which will be available for a special price for that month only! We’ll be taking pre-orders for that month, and the pedals will be built and shipped in the weeks that follow. Once the pre-order is over, the price goes up for the rest of the year! Pedals that sell well will become part of our regular offering, those that don’t will go away.
May’s Pedal of the Month is the Blood Drive!
The words “transparent overdrive” get thrown around a lot these days, but in reality a lot of those pedals still put quite a stamp on the tone of your rig. The Blood Drive, another totally original overdrive from Byron Amps, is a TOTALLY transparent medium gain overdrive pedal with three band active EQ.
It can be set for a nice clean boost, or a great rock (or country rock!) crunch with plenty of output volume, but the real star of the show is the EQ section, which is more like what you’d find on an analog mixing console than a typical guitar pedal. It’s powerful enough to make the Blood Drive sound like almost any other overdrive, with tons of boost or cut on each frequency available. All the while, it preserves the tone of both your guitar and your amplifier, or any pedals that it’s stacked with.
It has plenty of low end and works really well on bass!
