Description

A little overdrive pedal with lots of punch that makes your guitar honk, bark and scream. The gain range is huge, but smooth and refined throughout. Low gain settings have great dynamic response and note definition. As you turn the drive to full The SuperNova Drive approaches full on distortion or fuzz.

That’s a lot of knobs for a little pedal.

Adding too many controls to an overdrive often causes more problems than it solves. You’ve probably owned one of those “super versatile” stompboxes before that offers a lot of variation, but usually leads to more time tweaking than making music. Usually the actual overdrive lacks any kind of personality or character. The EQ often seems tuned for a cheap stereo. The bass usually sounds like some kind of thick mud when turned up, and disappears completely when turned down. The midrange controls seem tuned far too high. The treble controls usually just add some razor blade thin hiss to the top end that sounds like broken glass in your ear drum. It’s time to stop turning knobs and start playing your guitar.

The SuperNova Drive turns skeptics in to believers.

Even the sound it makes when running your fingers over the wound strings sounds more like your amp than some buzzy pedal.  The SuperNova Drive won’t thin out your tone or kill bass response.

The multi-band EQ has been finely tuned and resides in a friendly neighborhood for both guitar and bass.

The controls are not aimed at making your amp sound like something it’s not. The treble control adds some bite, or can be rolled back to smooth things out a bit.

The mids contours the body of your tone, and acts a bit differently depending on drive settings. Turn the bass knob to find the sweet spot that works for your guitar and amplifier. Roll it back a bit if you are running your amplifier at “on the edge” levels where most overdrives would just get muddy and messy.

The SuperNova Drive is loved equally by guitar and bass players alike. At high gain settings easily cops hard rock, retro metal and stoner rock tones. There’s sustain for solos, and can lead to lots of sweet sounding controllable feedback that doesn’t sound fake or brittle. At lower gain settings it handles complex chords with ease. It has a bit of an early 60′s flavor to it with the drive dialed back, and will handle any early rock and roll licks or blues riffs you throw at it.
