Swell Pedals about v2

The G-Drive delivers classic tones made popular by ‘50s & '60s American tube amps in a compact and easy to use low-gain push-drive pedal from SWELL.

The Drive is extremely responsive to the nuances and complex overtones of single-coil and humbucking pickups and cleans up just like your favorite amp by simply rolling back your guitar volume.

Fundamentally transparent and with real tube-driven compression the G-Drive is also dead-quiet even with the output level control maxed out!

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 G-Drive… R.O.C.K. from the USA.
