NVMBR Drive V1.5
OVERDRIVE WITH OOMPF
WHAT: Medium gain, broad frequency drive for guitar & bass- special edition mod of our 1st pedal on a brilliant silver hammertone finish!
INSPIRATION: 90s recording sessions using small tube amps pushed hard as overdrive effects.
CIRCUIT SAUCE: Drive nuance control varies gain and signal clipping simultaneously. Turn it to the right to increase the gain and asymmetrical diode clipping = more overloaded drive. To the left, to the left... is more silicon transistor drive character = a tighter drive with more clarity.
Highly interactive with the input signal, the original circuit added a slight volume bump that was more pronounced with some signals. Version 1.5 has been factory modded (and by "factory "we mean our basements) to include a volume control, the small knob on the right.
SOUND: Depending on the pickups and instrument, the NVMBR Drive V1.5 can deliver a very full frequency overdrive from medium gain to blown speaker! A guitar volume knob unlocks more gain range, as the Drive cleans up well and is totes responsive to playing attack.
The sound is the same as the original version with a post-circuit volume attenuator. The sonic ground covered in the videos below spans low end bass to single coil bridge pickups!
NVMBR Drive V1.5 features top-mounted Neutrik jacks and silver hammertone paint finish. A very limited edition, "factory mod" version of our 1st pedal- there may be a 1-2 day lead time to install the volume pot and little wires. 😉
- 9V center negative power supply or battery
- Nuance controls clipping type, more transistor alone or transistor plus clipping diodes
- Huge gain capacitor passes wide range of frequencies for a full sound suitable for guitar or bass. Or stylophone, cracklebox...
