Players who love the raw grit and dynamic response of Class A amplifiers will find the Getaway Drive from Orange to be an incredible addition to their pedalboard! This ‘amp in a box’ style overdrive provides the lush tone of your favorite Orange amps. An internal push button rolls off frequencies above 20 kHz when depressed (default setting). This will be more apparent when used with an interface or headphones. This pedal utilizes an internal charge pump for extra headroom.
When using the CabSim output marked with the headphone symbol, the CabSim will always be activated even when the pedal is in bypass. This output can also be connected to computer interface or headphones. Both outputs can be used simultaneously. If using the ‘GETAWAY’ output, it is low impedance, buffered when in bypass. The bypass is very transparent. This is ideally used on the clean channel of an amp or with slight overdrive utilizing high volume, low gain levels on the pedal.
The Getaway Driver pedal can be powered by 9 VDC. A regulated DC power supply fitted with a center negative plug (2.1mm). To replace the battery, unfasten the four screws on the base and secure the new battery in the battery clip, making sure to observe the battery’s polarity (+ / -).
