Swell Pedals about v2

The B-Drive delivers classic tones made popular by '60s and '70s American tube amps in a compact and easy to use low-gain push-drive pedal from SWELL.

Fundamentally transparent, smooth natural compression and with NO loss of low-end frequencies the B-Drive is also dead-quiet even with the output level control maxed out!

The B-Drive cleans up by simply rolling back your volume knob and is also extremely responsive to the nuances of pick and finger style techniques.

Select between Drive's 1 & 2 for the just the right amount of gain and the NEW Boost remote jack (another SWELL 1st) gives you unparalleled control of your signal level with any simple latching on/off footswitch.

From your home Studio to the stage cranked amp tone and feel at any volume level via Amp and/or Record outs.

The B-Drive… for the Tone-ally driven.
