Greenchild Tribus Drive



Offering durable construction and a vintage vibe for the consummate musician, Greenchild LLC’s Tribus Drive effects pedal takes the concept of “road-ready durability” to an entirely new level.

The Tribus Drive is a uniquely voiced, three channel guitar pedal, designed to offer a broad ranging tonal palette. Essentially three pedals in one (clean boost, overdrive, and distortion), Tribus Drive covers a wide variety of musical genres and styles. From blues, rock, metal, country, and jazz, Tribus Drive has you covered.


  • Random access switching: hop from channel-to-channel in any order
  • MOSFET based distortion
  • True mechanical bypass across all three channels
  • Properly matched input and output impedance
  • Silent relay muting (via internal toggle switch)
  • Extreme touch sensitivity; responds dynamically to every nuance of your picking with definition and clarity
  • Equally well suited for driving tubes, solid state amps, or direct injection (DI) interfaces
  • Built like a tank, by hand in the USA, with premium quality parts


  • BOOST CHANNEL (Blue): 22dB of clean boost on tap; plenty of power to drive your amp into pure, glorious saturation. The Bone Ray tone control matches the flexibility of a traditional three knob tone stack, with only two knobs.

  • OVERDRIVE ?CHANNEL (Green): An extremely dynamic MOSFET overdrive that will add bite to your signal and push your tone to the limits. The tone control provides treble boost or cut, and the volume control features an active Baxandall circuit for extra power and sustain.

  • DISTORTION CHANNEL (Red): Essentially a Tube Screamer™ on steroids, the distortion channel delivers tons of dirt and saturated gain. Expect MOSFET based distortion with Plexi tones that range from rock to heavy metal, and a unique voice control that adds punch or clarity on demand.
