Gurus Amps Presents the SexyDrive MkII

The latest version includes a balance control to blend the overdrive and clean signals.

Faenza, Italy (May 3, 2017) -- The new Sexydrive MkII has all the same features of first Sexydrive pedal, which was famous for its outstanding dynamic and amp-like response. We have now taken inspiration from some of the most historical overdrive tones like Dumble and Klon. We have also added a blend option with a control called balance.

This balance control lets you mix the overdrive and clean signal to revive pick attack and increase the dynamic feel. It adds a new exciting dynamic level to your performance. A small hole in the bottom panel gives you access to a trimpot to set the level of the clean signal to be assigned to the Balance pot.

Two small windows on the faceplate, show the “peak” (drive) and “fuel” indicates when battery level is low (when Sexydrive MkII is used with a 9V battery.)

The Sexydrive MkII can also use a DC power supply of 9 V or 12V that internally provides elevated input tension for more dynamics.

The Look of new Sexydrive MkII perfectly matches other Gurus Pedals.

Size: 3.54” x 5.11” x 1.57”

Features:

  • Amp-like response
  • Boost/Overdrive use, with a full tone stack to better sculpt your tone
  • Infinite sweetspots tweaking volume, balance, and gain pots
  • High dynamic signal both in 9 or 12V powering mode

Here’s a story about the most interesting man in the world.

“The guitar is my first love, my partner in life. We grew up together and we’ll most likely die together.” —Thom Bresh

One of the best benefits of being a musician is that musicians know musicians, and musicians are the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Georgia O’Keeffe, the Marx Brothers, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Juliette Lewis, Jack Black, and Zooey Deschanel are or were musicians, albeit not full-time.
