    Super thick and sweet crunch that brings 3X the rock!

    The uniquely designed DD3X Double Drive 3X Distortion Pedal from Tech 21 captures the lush, muscular power amp distortions of both Class A and Class A/B tube amps. The tones can be used individually or you can feed one into the other for massive 'cascading' distortion and limitless tonal variations. The 100% analog Double Drive 3X is a 3-channel, fully programmable version of its single channel predecessor and features active 3-band EQ. The expanded tone section gives you even greater flexibility to create incredible and original tones. You can store three custom sounds, even on the fly, by simply tweaking the knobs and double-tapping on a footswitch. How easy is that? And, with both Drives at minimum, you can program a clean boost up to 10dB for blazing solos.

    DRIVE A controls the amount of Class A power amp output stage distortion (like Vox AC30®-style amp), rich in even harmonics. The amount of harmonics is dynamically controlled by the input level and their ratio by how hard you pick.

    DRIVE A/B controls the amount of Class A/B power amp output stage distortion (like Fender®/Marshall®-style amps), rich in odd harmonics.

    The signal path of Drive A runs into the signal path of Drive A/B. This results in an electronic multiplication, rather than addition, of the amount of distortion to achieve a cascading effect.

    • LEVEL is capable of extremely high output, up to 10dB (even in clean setting). Useful as a "pre-boost" for additional gain out of your amp without altering any tonal characteristics.
    • 1/4" INPUT is 1megOhm high impedance input, same as traditional tube amps.
    • 1/4" OUTPUT is 1kOhm low impedance output.
    • Can drive long cables without loss of signal integrity, even in bypass.
    • LED is highly efficient and low power consuming. It will fade as the battery runs low (±6.5V), although the Double Drive will continue to operate.
    • Utilizes standard 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional power supply:
    • Tech 21 Model #DC2.

    goood but....

    Comments about Tech 21 DD3X Double Drive 3X Distortion Pedal:

    This is a great pedal, dont get me wrong, however it is more of a modeler than a traditional pedal. I would love to have a pedal like lets say a Fulltone OCD or a Lovepedal Englishman, but i chose this because it has so many options. you can really dial in the sound of a Vox AC30 or a Mesa-boogie dual rectifier even a marshall JCM800 but htats the only problem is that it can handle all of those sounds.i cant pick! go to guitar center and try one out. make sure to look at the manual for tone options. its a cool pedal, just keep in mind its a modeler.

    Comments about Tech 21 DD3X Double Drive 3X Distortion Pedal:

    I had a Boss OD-20 for multi distortion effect ran through a keeley comressor and a DD-20 delay. The Boss doesn't have toggles, so if you want to chage from one preset to the next, to get back to the other one you have to tap the foot controller 4 times. So, I bought the Tech 21!WOW talk about AWESOME blues and country overdrive this thing has behemoth tone!!!Only thing I don't like is why you try and get a good rock crunch out of it, it seems to get a little to trebly for me...
