OVERVIEW

A powerful overdrive that will bring the best out of your tone.

The D&M Drive is the perfect storm of Drive and Boost. The D&M offers a gorgeous sounding high voltage Boost side designed to impart the perfect tone on any amp that needs to be pushed. No longer will you wonder what the perfect clean boost should be. As you roll things up, the drive morphs your tone into singing gold. A sexy and smoothly saturated midrange voice appears that breathes confidence. The Drive side offers everything you’d want in a powerful gain stage—from flat, honest overdrive perfect for any set of chords to searing-hot lead work with tons of sustain. The Drive is the perfect counterpoint to the Boost. Not only does each side of the pedal provide rewarding guitar tones, they can be used to stack together for an out-of-world experience. The pro switching system developed for the D&M Drive allows you to select which side of the pedal comes first. In fact, you can configure the pedal to work in a pro-switching system like the G2 for independent pedal use!

The Boost
Looking for something in between a clean boost like the high voltage Keeley Katana and a germanium modded professional overdrive? The D&M Drive delivers insane amounts of headroom and a distinct midrange voice can be dialed in to give you the lead voicing you dream of. Dialed in to give you the punch and clarity of a horn yet subtle and smooth in saturation to give you warm overdrive and tons of sustain. Expect it to work well with any amp or rig.

The Drive
Multiple Gain Stages are where it’s at. This delivers. From a its lowest settings where you feel like you’ve discovered the perfect pro sounding overdrive to the roar of a high end amp. This side of the D&M packs a heavily saturated punch. The headroom on this side of the pedal is no slouch, use it to find that delicate balance between drive and amp saturation for the core of your tone. Turn up the Drive to give you a dynamic and searing tube-like gain that excels in sustain. Designed for quick attack with plenty of high and low end. Rich harmonic gain and sustain with dynamics is what this side offers.

The Switching
Daniel Steinhardt from TheGigRig insisted that this was a versatile dual gain box that wasn’t limited in any way with its two simple stomp switches. You select the order! A simple toggle allows you to configure the pedal so that when both the Drive and Boost are on you decide which is first. If you want to have a smooth and round tone go into a richly driven amp-like gain stage….or if you want a highly driven tone with edge and harmonics to be then boosted with clarity and refinement, it’s your choice. Not only that, but it also has TRS inputs so that this pedal would easily integrate into an professional switching system like the G2. Now pedalboard designers can configure the D&M Drive to act as two independent pedals, switching between either side of the pedal as it were its own stand alone effect.

      Comments about Keeley D&M Drive Effects Pedal:

      I've never met a Keeley pedal I didn't love. The D&M drive is no exception. I knew I had found the right pedal when my rhythm guitarist stopped during a jam session to ask how I had managed to get such an amazing mid-range out of my guitar. I was only running the D&M Drive into the crunch channel.

      The drive provides a harmonically rich dirt that sings with open chords. The boost is clear and cuts through any mix. I prefer to run the drive into the boost to increase the guitar's presence, but the pedal sounds nice the other way, as well. The gain stacks well with the crunch tones on my amp.

      My only word of caution: There's a huge output difference between "drive first" and "boost first". As you would expect, you get a *lot* more output out of drive first. You're probably not going to be switching between the two settings during a single show. I'm not the kind of guy who fumbles around with his pedals during a gig, so I don't think it's a problem. You need to decide for yourself.
