Carl Martin has announced a new overdrive pedal in the form of the DC Drive.
Giving its Vintage Series a face lift, the new anodized pedal is designed for a smaller pedal board footprint, yet promises all the same great tones.
The DC Drive has a few tricks up its sleeve. Besides the typical Level, Tone and Drive knobs, which obviously control the volume of the signal, the tone and the amount of overdrive, a Regular/Fat switch has been added.
In Regular mode, the drive is crisp and clear – suitable for anything that calls for old-school drive. Switch over to Fat and the drive gets thicker with a lot more gain, making your sound much more modern.
The pedal can be powered by a regulated power supply like the Carl Martin ProPower V2.
To celebrate the new release, Carl Martin has launched a free giveaway. All you have to do to be in with a chance of getting your hands on the new pedal for free is to go to the official Carl Martin Facebook page and share and like the pinned post about the DC Drive.
