The 2018 DC Drive is smaller and updated version of Carl Martin’s classic overdrive pedal. Besides the size, the main upgrade consists in the new Regular/Fat switch, which adds – in Fat mode – more gain for a modern sound.

Here are a few videos of this pedal:

We have given the Vintage Series a face lift! A new, fresh, anodized pedal designed for a smaller pedal board footprint, with all the same great tones. Here are the first in the series: The DC Drive, with it’s killer Overdrive.

Just like Carl, this pedal 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 (hmmm, which knob?) and the amount of overdrive, Carl has smartly added a Regular/Fat switch… not so typical. 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. The pedal can be powered by a regulated power supply like the Carl Martin ProPower V2.
