Earthquaker Devices Crimson Drive

The Crimson Drive is a cutting and dynamic overdrive designed around a single germanium transistor and vintage germanium diodes. It creates a very open tone with excellent harmonics and a pleasing raw grit that can't be duplicated with more common FET or opamp based overdrives. With a simple twist of the gain control, the Crimson Drive can go from a gritty Rangemaster style treble boost to a rattling overdriven sound that is reminiscent a vintage plexi style amp at full bore. Works great with single coils as well as humbuckers and has excellent clean up with your guitars volume control.

Upgrades from V1 include:

Added Tone control
Vintage black glass OC139 germanium transistors and germanium diodes
Lower noise floor and improved power filtering

Measures

4.37″ X 2.37″ X 1.75″ with knobs
