The perfect combination of fuzz, distortion and overdrive that captures the best qualities of each sound.
The idea of blending amps together has been a studio trick used on countless recordings over the years. Being able to blend the strengths of certain amplifiers and have other amps fill in the weaknesses produces a richer, better balanced sound. Up until now, the only way to repoduce this live was to haul a few amps around with you on the road. After a few gigs of doing that, a lot of players end up compromising tone for the ease of carrying 1 amp around with them. This is where the multidrive shines.
The multidrive allows you to blend Overdrive, Distortion and Fuzz together, creating a full and rich array of tones that would not be available otherwise. Let the sustain of fuzz, the bite of distortion and the clarity and note definition of overdrive all work together! It's like having an overdrive pedal, a fuzz pedal, and a distortion pedal, all in one box.
The Empress Multidrive is three killer drive tones in one box with the ability to blend them to taste. Each drive can be individually high-pass and low-pass filtered giving you infinite possibilities at your finger tips. Don't be fooled, this isn't a box of clones, its three new innovative circuits delivering tube preamp sound in a 4x3 inch box.

Comments about Empress Effects Multidrive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:
I've owned the multi drive for over a year, and it's a fantastic pedal. It has really great overdrive, fuzz, and distortion sounds individually, but the real magic happens when you combine 2 or more effects together in parallel. You get very nice drive settings that sound fantastic. I particularly love the overdrive effect for it's organic tone, and the distortion setting on mild and crunch is very nice for low gain uses. This pedal may not sound as good as an original bigmuff pi, ts808 hand wired, or fulltone fulldrive individually, but it combines three excellent effects together in a small enclosure that is really nice for a pedalboard. I love tweaking the settings for the mid tones through the switches, and the master EQ and individual selector EQ's for each effect (lp/none/hp) is very powerful, and helps to tailor the sound to your liking. Empress is known for great pedals that are very tweakable (I know, I own their superdelay and paraeq as well), and this pedal is no exception. This is a great option for someone looking for a quality drive pedal.
