Product Description

What Vintage series would be complete without an ultra-versatile and simple to use drive pedal? The Carl Martin DC Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal is just that! Besides the typical Level, Tone and Drive knobs, Carl Martin has smartly added a clean boost after the drive section, and a Regular/Fat switch to the DC Drive. 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, much more modern.

Anyone who knows the Carl Martin line is familiar with his Clean Boost, 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 overdrive pedal comes in that cool retro diecast housing with the equally cool Carl Martin graphics.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
i got it for $125 and itz well worth it 'cause it has the boost switch too. tone is a little less than a real 808 but very similar.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
very nice knobs and switches.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
if u want the 808 sound and u'll have to add a boost pedal (me a seymour duncan after it)but u'll be happier. as i said, well worth the $$$ though.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
great
Action
How was the action out of the box?
