This listing is for a clone of the 1981 Inventions DRV drive, using an adapted version of the pedalPCB Informant Overdrive schematic. It sounds amazing, and much cheaper than the original!
Top mounted jacks, handwired, and a cool cream/red aesthetic. The knobs are not labeled, but match to the original's "Drive", "Cut", and "Vol".
The original sells for $250. This is a deal!
From the manufacturer:
nuanced preamp/distortion pedal designed in collaboration with Jon
Ashley of Bondi Effects. Through four years of abandoned prototypes and
circuit tweaking, I think that we have emerged with something really
special here. I wanted the DRV to be an extension of myself and what I
personally needed from a distortion pedal. It is vintage minded in sound
and concept. I find that there is a wide variety of sounds that can be
found from tweaking three highly interactive knobs, which is how I like
to tweak when I am finding a sound.
Clear and harmonic-rich
warmth with guitar specific midrange, which brings a lot of clarity to
almost any instrument. I think I’m most proud of the lower gain sections
of the pedal, where preamp meets distortion. The DRV has a unique
dynamic range and sensitivity, where instead of going clean to slightly
overdriven, it goes from clean to slightly distorted. I also love the
thick and yet clear fuzz sounds that you’ll find in the high gain
