What Vintage series would be complete without an ultra-versatile and simple to use drive pedal? Funny, that’s what Carl said just before he introduced the DC Drive. 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 clean boost after the drive section, and 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. 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 comes in that cool retro diecast housing with the equally cool chicken-head knobs and CM graphics.

The pedal can be powered by 9v battery but we recommend a regulated power supply (not included).
