StewMac Ghost Drive | PG Plays

DIY supply specialist StewMac sell a wide variety of parts and kits. In this episode of PG Plays, our resident lab rat John Bohlinger takes a deep dive with the company’s Ghost Drive. It’s the most popular among StewMac’s pedal kit offerings, which include overdrives, fuzzes, boosts, modulation effects, and more.
