Carl Martin DC Drive
Carl Martin has announced the DC Drive, a new vintage-styled overdrive pedal.
According to the brand, the DC Drive is ultra-versatile and simple to use. Besides the typical Level, Tone and Drive knobs, it also features a clean boost after the drive section, and also a "Regular/Fat" switch.
In Regular mode, the drive is said to be crisp and clear, suitable for anything that calls for old-school drive… Switching to Fat makes the drive thicker with a lot more gain for much more modern sound. As for the clean boost, it is a familiar feature on Carl Martin products which allows a bump-up in signal volume that can be used either with your clean or overdriven sounds.
The result is a multi-use pedal that allows you to have a variety of rhythm and solo volumes at your feet. Like the rest of the Vintage line, the DC drive comes in a retro diecast housing with chicken-head knobs and CM graphics. The pedal can be powered by 9v battery, but regulated power supply is recommended.
The DC Drive is to be released early November 2008. No MSRP announced as of yet.
