Recreate tones produced by Jimmy Page, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Johnson, all from one box. This board provides the best variety of playable sounds from the 70's.

In the early 70's, fuzz was king. The fuzz portion of this board is highly "playable," meaning that the response and dynamics can be controlled by pick attack and the guitar's volume control.  Later in the 70's the warm tubey crunch of a mildly pushed amp became highly desirable. The overdrive section of this pedal provides these tones. And best yet, you can mix the sounds of the overdrive, fuzz and booster in any number of combinations.

Need to grab a few things for a jam over at a buddy's house?

Grab your guitar, a few cables, and this box, and you're all set.

SuperDrive 70's - Squeezed into a 1590BB, Coutesy of Tremelo68

"I decided to skip the mod for now. I wanted to get it on my board for a practice session. Wow! It rocks! I stufffed it into a 1590BB, so the footswitching is tough, but then again, it takes a lot less space! Thanks for all the help. I do have the mod ready to put into the pedal and I think it will work."
