An overdrive with classic character and open, vintage tone.
The Crimson Drive is a cutting and dynamic overdrive designed around a single germanium transistor and vintage germanium diodes. It creates a very open tone with excellent harmonics and a pleasing raw grit that can't be duplicated with more common FET or opamp based overdrives. With a simple twist of the gain control, the Crimson Drive can go from a gritty Rangemaster style treble boost to a rattling overdriven sound that is reminiscent a vintage plexi style amp at full bore. Works great with single coils as well as humbuckers and has excellent clean up with your guitars volume control.

Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Crimson Drive Germanium Overdrive:
Fantastic pedal. It might get some feedback if you use a power supply, so I would recommend a 9V battery. Other than that, great pedal.
