XTS Custom Pedals
The Winford Drive is our newest offering. This pedal adapts to nearly every situation, going from light overdrive on country stages, to big wooly distortion on the hardest rocking gigs. With unparalleled touch sensitivity and dynamic response, the Winford responds to the way you play. The Winford goes beyond cleaning up simply by rolling back on your guitar's volume. Small changes in playing dynamics are translated immediately by the Winford to a huge palette of tones.
The Gain knob covers tones from very light overdrive to monstrous distortion. The unique Mid Boost gives natural sounding boost in the lower mids that can fill out lightly overdriven tones, and can give single coil instruments the girth to compete with their humbucking brethren. The Tone knob gives you broad control of your high frequency content and the Presence control lets you add clarity to your high end without getting piercing or sterile.
The Winford Drive is one of the most versatile guitar effect pedals ever made. It not only gives the player access to a huge variety of tones via its simple, powerful controls, but works with your playing dynamics and guitar's volume control to make the Winford an ultra-responsive and dynamic part of any guitar rig.
