The Devil Drive draws its roots from the classic OD-1 overdrive that Jeff has used with Annihilator from the very beginning.

Montreal, Canada (November 14, 2011) -- SolidGoldFX announces the new Jeff Waters Devil Drive overdrive pedal. The Devil Drive draws its roots from the classic OD-1 overdrive that Jeff has used since the very beginning to achieve the tight, articulate metal tones that he and his legendary band, Annihilator, are known for.

SolidGoldFX says the Devil Drive is not your typical, obnoxious sounding metal pedal, saying, "It doesn’t boast extremely high levels of gain, scooped mids or insane bass. Instead it is designed to be layered and textured with heavy hitting, hard rock amps to deliver its scorching tone or used on its own for some bluesy bite."

The pedal features a simple two mode, three knob layout, true bypass switching and low-noise design. According to SGFX, the tone is clear and focused with excellent string definition tight lows and smooth highs. Its drive ranges from clean boost to a hot overdrive.

The Mode switch allows you to select either “Vintage” or “Modern” modes. In “Vintage” mode, only the Volume and Drive controls are active, while the “Modern” mode engages the Tone control and adds a slight increase in output gain for a hotter signal. The new SolidGoldFX Devil Drive carries a street price of $175 USD.
