CAST Engineering Releases the Mike Zito Peace Drive

A uniquely voiced overdrive and a special boost that have been custom tuned to Mike Zito’s ear.

Atlanta, GA (May 19, 2017) -- The latest offering from CAST Engineering. The Peace Drive brings you two pedals in one, a uniquely voiced overdrive and a special boost that have been custom tuned to Mike Zito’s ear. This pedal also offers a unique switching system that enables you to put the boost function pre or post overdrive channel.

The Peace Drive gives you a drive section that offers up a delectable range of tone, by way of the level, gain, and tone knobs, which give you the ability to cover almost any musical style. We’ve worked countless hours with Mike to create the sound he hears in his head and we are confident this will please anyone’s taste for tone.

Don’t forget about the boost section that is dripping with magic. With a level and gain knob controlling this side, it does not disappoint. Use it as a standalone boost to send your amp into tonal bliss or stack it before or after the overdrive section by using our unique switching system that uses an LED ring around the button that changes color depending on what order you choose.

This pedal offers up a serious range of overdriven tones that will approach the distortion/fuzz territory when set correctly. The overdrive side has red lit knobs and the boost shines bright with green lit knobs.


  • Two pedal layout – Level, Gain, Tone (overdrive side) Level, Gain (boost side)
  • Two Footswitches for the overdrive and boost
  • Push Button Switch for the order (light indicates order selected)
  • Standard 9v neg tip power supply
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Designed and hand built in Atlanta, GA

The CAST Engineering Peace Drive is available for $279.99

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
