CARL MARTIN DC DRIVE
When Carl decided to update the Vintage Series, it did not take long to decide on a drive pedal....the DC Drive. Super simple but extremely versatile, the DC Drive features Level Tone and Drive controls which do the obvious, but it also has the Reg/Fat switch.....this is where the magic begins. In the Reg setting you get a traditional overdrive sound that is very quiet and adds no color to your tone. Dial in just enough to put an edge on your sound or crank it right up to full saturation, the DC Drive is pleasantly musical. Now switch over to the Fat setting and get more...much more.
There's more drive, more mids, more bass, more natural compression, more sustain, and.... who wouldn't want more of that? The Fat setting is darker, and much more modern, so you get two distinct drives in one pedal. Only the clean boost was dropped from the original pedal in order to save space. Carl, is a smart man. Check out the new look DC Drive....cool, anodized, smaller footprint, die cast case, head mounted input/output/9v and that awesome Carl Martin DC/DC converter circuitry which allows the pedal to run with +-12V internally (this means better parts and better sound), all while being powered by a standard 9v 200mA power supply. Bigger sound, bigger tone, all analog, all Carl Martin!
