OVERVIEW

Hot distortion and overdrive pedal paired with a simple solution to give you even more juicy tone and power.

Xotic Effects Limited Edition SL Drive Chrome with Xotic Voltage Doubler Bundle includes the Xotic Effects SL Drive quickly became a favorite among the overdrive and distortion pedal enthusiast, and the Voltage Doubler.

SL Drive
Famous for its woody, organic and beautiful sounds of saturation, these legendary British amplifiers, the Super Lead & Super Bass, have been delivering one of the all-time classic sounds for almost 50 years. Players like Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and countless other relied on this type of tone for their signature sound.

Xotic have recreated this vintage masterpiece in a rugged small enclosure. The SL Drive offers very amp-like response and cleans up nicely with a roll of your guitar's volume knob. The internal dip switches allow you to choose the sound characteristics of both 1959 models. The Super Lead setting offers a brighter tone with more gain, while the Super Bass setting has more low end with less high end. Its compact design conforms nicely to the smallest space on any pedalboard.

The SL Drive is equipped with true-bypass switching and eliminates any signal interference when switched off. Power requirements are either 9V battery or AC adapter (sold separatelyl). This Limited Edition model comes in a chrome finish.

Voltage Doubler
Now with Xotic's Voltage Doubler, you can power the SL Drive with higher voltages allowing for various amounts of cleaner headroom, resulting in a bigger airier tone. Just plug in any 9-volt power adapter into the Voltage Doubler and choose between 15V or 18V. Now you can rock out at 9V, 15V or 18V.

Organic and musical

Comments about Limited Edition SL Drive Chrome with Xotic Voltage Doubler Bundle:

This pedal is very well made and has a very useful range of distortion. I haven't thoroughly tested all its voices (tweaked by the mini switches inside the box) but they all seem to be very musical with the various settings offered. I can't say I am an expert on Marshall sounds but it does seem to mimic that type of dirt when cranked up. I have used it with a Fender Blues Deluxe RI and it does turn it into a high gain-type beast. The distortion cleans up nicely when dialing down the guitar volume and reacts very well to picking dynamics. Power chords and riffs growl and punch with a great classic rock vibe (AC/DC, Sabbath, etc.) and leads are thick and juicy without any annoying shrillness (depending on your settings, guitars, signal path, etc. of course). The signal is not colored while the pedal is off. That is a big plus in my book since too many effects color your signal these days, even if they claim to be "true bypass". Finally, its size is very pedal-board or gig bag friendly and the price is definitely right.

      Comments about Xotic Effects Limited Edition SL Drive Chrome with Xotic Voltage Doubler Bundle:

      It's basically a Marshall lead sound in a tiny package. Really solidly built. Can use a 9V battery if necessary. Dip switches to change the voicing of the pedal are inside the housing and not that easily accessible if you've got it velcroed to a board. But the 4 different settings are pretty useful to dial in a particular sound you want -- especially great if you want to use it with different amps. Cleans up well with the guitar's volume knob. Fairly quiet for an overdrive pedal. I have not had a chance to try the 18V adaptor that came with the pedal. Sounds great at 9V plugged into my board's power supply. Only negative...the chrome facing on this version of the pedal make the clear knobs a little hard to read. Would probably be easier with black knobs. Not much of a problem considering how great it sounds.
