All new and redesigned for 2012. Now in the CLASSIC cast aluminum indestructible case!
If you've got a BIG sounding clean amp- like a Twin, Bassman- heck even a JC-120 or big, clean modelling amp- the Bluesdrive is for you.
The goal here was to recreate the big, fat round smooth overdrive of a Fender® Deluxe but with modern levels of gain and crunch. FANTASTIC with thinner sounding guitars- get that Tele sounding FAT... really fattens up even Rickenbacker®s and thinner sounding Strats.
The Bluesdrive Classic has three modes:
- "Rotund" is MAX BOTTOM- great for thin guitars or thin amps- may be a bit much for overwound humbuckers...
- "Fat" is just right- fat and big like a hard-edged overdriven Fender® Deluxe...
- "Thin" is tighter and harder- like a Marshall running on a variac...
Like all of the GFS Footpedals, the Bluesdrive Classic is built a solid steel enclosure with heavy duty componentry and high quality switch and jacks. It will run off of a standard 9 volt battery (Not Included), or either of our GFS A/C Adapters.
Here are a few quick samples we recorded using an Xaviere XV-500 with GFS Fat Pat pickups, through a 63 Fender® Princeton, miked with a Shure SM-57.
