The Luxury Drive is based on simplicity, durability, and most of all tone. Without tone, what else is there.
The Luxury Drive is not a typical Overdrive. In fact, it offers very little grit of its own. Instead, the Luxury Drive was designed to serve as a boost to drive your Overdrive / Distortion pedals, and your amp harder. With the level control set to the lowest setting, there is a slight boost in the output signal. Turning the level control to the highest setting yields an increase in signal to pummel your effects rig or amp. Note: At high level settings, noise from pickups, cables, and other effects will also be boosted with the signal from the Luxury Drive.
The Luxury Drive is designed to boost your signal, and retain the tonal characteristics of the guitar / amp / fx you already have. The increase in signal from the Luxury Drive offers an added edge of treble-licious tone, with a slight bit of touch sensitive compression that won't fail in the low end.
Greg Koch, Fender clinician, and Favored Nations recording artist said this of the Luxury Drive. "Its Sublime, Full On Gristle"
Try the Luxury Drive in front of your favorite Overdrive or Distortion pedal for a little added luxury to your dirty or clean signal. It works great with your acoustic too!
