Denis Herbert, aka Doc Music Station, is about to launch no more than four effect pedals for guitar in December.

Doc Music Station debuted in 2012 with Lucy’s Drive, a clone of the legendary Klon Centaur which second version will be released in December with a new design (Lucy’s Drive II, 250€) that allows for installing the stompbox in a pedalboard, with jacks positioned on the side of the enclosure and the ability to add a 9V battery, something that was not possible on the first version. Note that the first Lucy’s Drive was a request from Denis’ friend, and the designer decided to built a pre-series.

Lucy’s Drive testers feedback was very positive, and this led Denis to build new pedals. You can now find the Doc’Stortion (189€), a distortion pedal based on an OPA 2604 with two symmetric and asymmetric modes, the Vintage Drive (169€), an overdrive inspired from the TI 4558 that sounds like a TS 808 and employs a symmetric silicium clipping circuit, the Val’Drive (169€), a version of the JRC 458 with an asymmetric clipping circuit using silicium + germanium + LED, and two Vintage Fuzz pedals, one based on a germanium Russian NOS MP41 circuit (129€) for Hendrix tones and the second using silicium BC 108 (129€).

A metal-oriented distortion pedal (189€) and a +10dB Boost pedal (90€) will also be available soon.

All the stompboxes are powered by a 9V battery (not included) or an external power supply (not provided) and use a PCB manufactured in Irland. Denis then modifies the clipping circuit, solders, assembles and tests each pedal in the North of France. Production is about 30 pedals a month, but it should increase very soon.

Doc Music Station website will be available soon, in the meanwhile, you can contact Denis Herbert (in English) by e-mail at denis.herbert@neuf.fr.
