Pigtronix Announces FAT Drive

Pigtronix aims to distilled the essential soul of tube overdrive into the straightforward yet remarkably flexible design of the new FAT Drive.

Port Jefferson Station, NY (January 15, 2012) -- Since its inception in 2004, Pigtronix has pursued a conceptual approach to pedal design called F.A.T.: Futuristic Analog Tone. Pigtronix now intends to set a new standard for tube distortion in stompbox form with the all new FAT Drive pedal at Winter NAMM 2012.

Pigtronix aims to distilled the essential soul of tube overdrive into the straightforward yet remarkably flexible design of the new FAT Drive. This potent pedal is loaded with multiple cascaded gain stages, delivering musically dynamic and remarkably touch sensitive overdrive tones. FAT drive beefs up your tone without masking the natural sound of the instrument. Unlike many one-trick-pony effects; the FAT Drive delivers a full spectrum of overdrive tones, from subtle bite to raging crunch, all with convincing authority.

FAT Drive's massive gain section is coupled to a variable low pass filter for sculpting the sound you require. Regardless of what guitar and amp combination you favor, the astounding full range gain structure of the FAT Drive pedal is designed to be an instant favorite "go-to" overdrive for rhythm and lead.

Pigtronix FAT Drive carries a list price of $175 and is available now at Pigtronix dealers worldwide.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
