LunaStone Smooth Drive 1
SMOOTH DRIVE 1- DRIVE SAFE. DRIVE SMOOTH. DRIVE ON.
This is one silky and smooth drive pedal that’ll give you just a little edge. But make no mistake. A little edge this tasteful can go a very long way and will often make all of the difference!
Think BB King, Larry Carlton and 335 Gibson guitars – even Jazz players will love the delicious crunch of this drive gem.
Compared to TrueOverDrive 1, this is a notch down the drive ladder.
Quite simply, we made this one for those of you out there who have wished for an even more gentle and subtle drive pedal than TOD 1, but without sacrificing the core tone of TrueOverDrive!
Yeah, it is smooth and gentle, but make no mistake – it can bite too! Dial in a healthy dose of drive and you can easily use Smooth Drive 1 for blues and rock, as well as the more jazzy styles.
Finally, you also get a small-footprint pedal with a beautiful Scandinavian design that just oozes stylish minimalism – and one that serves a particular purpose…
Just like the TrueOverDrive 1 and 2 pedals, the knobs on Smooth Drive 1 are not only placed diagonally because it looks killer, it is also because we know that sometimes a quick tweak is needed mid-song.
With the Volume and Drive knobs accessible by the edges, you can tweak them on the fly with your foot. No more kneeling down, letting go of the strings, abandoning the groove and loosing the momentum.
Just tweak on the go and keep doing what you are supposed to do. PLAY!
HEAR FOR YOURSELF
Apart from actually plugging into a pedal, nothing demonstrates it better than a great sound demo. Tune in, listen up and if possible wear some decent headphones.
For a smooth and jazzy context, please listen to the video demo at the top of the page. But also make sure to check out these two videos that show the more biting side of Smooth Drive 1. It may be a low-gain pedal tuned for jazzy vibes, but make no mistake, you can definitely crank it up and have it deliver some truly rocking sounds as well!
