Mythos Pedals Brings Back the Luxury Drive

Mythos Pedals Brings Back the Luxury Drive

The Luxury Drive adjusts the gain of a single transistor to deliver a punchy and clear sound.


Mythos Pedals has collaborated with Tim Jauernig to bring back the classic Luxury Drive Boost pedal. Hitting a clean amp, driving pedals, or pushing an already driven amp with the approximate 14dB of output is designed to get your tone right in the sweet spot.

Tim Jauernig, the original designer, is well known for his signature pedals designed for Greg Koch, Jeff Kollman, and more. TC Jauernig's pedals were always straightforward and no-nonsense and that vision definitely align with Zach’s idea for Mythos. Tim has taken a step back from building and Mythos is honored to keep his name and products alive in the minds and boards of players the world over.

Mythos Pedals Luxury Drive Boost Pedal

The Mythos Pedals Luxury Drive comes in a 125B enclosure with Top Mount jacks, and just like many of Tim’s designs, the baseplate is left raw aluminum for an old-school boutique feel. The Luxury Drive features a single true bypass switch and solitary level control, it doesn’t get any simpler than that. They will be available on March 8th, 2023 for $139 at Mythos Pedals dealers. We hope that this is the first of many collaborations with Tim Jauernig.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
