Not Your Daddy's Overdrive PedalThere are a ton of overdrive pedals out there, right? So why would Pigtronix, a company known for making totally off-the-wall pedals, jump on the overdrive pedal bandwagon? It's simple - the Pigtronix FAT Drive isn't your average overdrive. Unlike typical overdrive pedals, which use just one or two gain stages, the FAT Drive implements a series of cascading gain stages to achieve a truly smooth and dynamic overdrive that response naturally to the volume of your guitar. Hit it just a little to get that bluesy break up, or lay into it for soaring lead tones. You just don't get that from a standard overdrive pedal! And that's just the beginning of what's so cool about the Pigtronix FAT Drive.
Using its unique gain-staging architecture, Pigtronix added a Hi/Lo switch so you can totally re-voice the effect. Swtich it to Lo for a more classic tube amp tone, or toggle it to Hi and trigger pure high-gain mayhem! There's just no limit to the massive range of tone you can get out of the FAT Drive! But even throughout all of this range of tone, the FAT Drive won't lose the basic character of your axe. How cool is that???
Here's one more reason you've got to add one of these awesome pedals to your rig - it's got a built-in lowpass filter. Pull the tone knob all the way down for full-range drive, or roll of some of the highs and make room for truly bestial lows and added punch. It doesn't matter what style of music you play, if you own a guitar, you need a Pigtronix FAT Drive overdrive pedal.
