The Sixty 8 delivers everything from light break up to the growling roar of a Plexi in a conveniently sized 4.75”L x 3.63”W pedal.

The Deluxe version offers all of the amazing tones of the original Sixty 8 Drive, plus a convenient footswitch to choose between two gain stages. A boost switch has also been added bringing an already stellar pedal to new tonal heights.

Lawrence Petross—drawing upon over ten years experience building amps and pedals—devoted 6 months to design and perfect the circuit found in the Sixty 8 Drive. Each pedal is handcrafted by Lawrence in Mesa, Arizona, using only the finest parts available.
