Analog technology that gives you the quintessential Pigtronix tube sound overdrive.

Pigtronix FAT Drive Tube-Sound overdrive guitar effects pedal is thick and juicy, dripping with touch sensitive overdrive that responds to every nuance of your playing style. Multiple cascaded gain stages enable the FAT drive to cover sounds ranging from slightly overdriven to rich saturation, all while retaining musical dynamics and the original character of your instrument.

FAT Drive effects pedal takes a futuristic analog approach to create complex crunch tones using CMOS clipping and a variable low-pass filter for tone shaping. Bringing the tone control all the way clockwise takes this filter completely out of the circuit for total transparency and robust low end. Rolling the tone control back smooths out the highs, leaving ample mid-range bloom and bottom end punch.

A Hi/Lo toggle switch brings additional versatility to the FAT Drive’s wide-ranging palette of overdrive tones, altering the gain structure for enhanced crunch and soaring leads. The FAT Drive features true-bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity and overall output.

  • 100% Analog wide range overdrive
  • Multi-Stage Tube Emulated Clipping
  • Hi/Lo gain mode switch
  • Passive LPF Tone Control
  • True-bypass switching
  • 18VDC 300mA supply included 

Strap in and shift your sound into overdrive. Order today.

    the missing button for dry and wet makes this box useless not to mention the ultra_gain switch that takes out ani attack from your notes.

    and not battery powered :)))))

    Comments about Pigtronix Fat Drive Tube-Sound Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I was hesitant about buying this pedal and even before it arrived I had some remorse. Once it did arrive I was astounded by the dynamics of this pedal. I have tried many, many overdrives and distortions and this one beats them all in the dynamics category. It really does do what it claims to. It is truly amp-like in the touch response and drive factor. Play lightly and you don't know it's on. Dig in and you will be blown back a few feet. And, best of all the distortion doesn't come all at once. Control you attack and you could leave it on all the time. Of course if you want to shake the earth just flip that "More" switch but beware, it takes no prisoners.

    The only strike I can give it is the plastic jacks. I understand that they are probably just as durable as the metal ones but it's a mental thing.

    I got a great deal on mine when I purchased it but knowing what I know now I would have no hesitation laying out the full price on another should I ever need to.
