> The SEX DRIVE pedal was designed to fulfill the very particular needs of the builders good friend Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan, ARC Angels, David Bowie, Grammy winning producer, all around musician). The goal was to build a “clean-boost” pedal that would supply additional bottom end and sustain when needed. The pedal would have to provide a boost that would not alter the original quality of the amplifiers natural tone. Most important, was to not add a “nasal” tone like the other pedals in his effects graveyard. The result was the SEX DRIVE pedal.more

> The second is an acoustic board designed for Colin Hay of Men at Work. Colin wanted a very versatile system that was state of the art. It allows him to blend his dry acoustic sound with stereo effects. > A custom box was built by Martin to allow a DI feed and stereo XLR through the pedals to the house as well as a mono amp send. The box also allows a master mute of all outs to the tuner and a mute of the XLR's and amp send individually. The XLR's are ISO'd with two Jensen Transformers. > The signal chain is as follows: Custom switching box---Demeter Tube DI---EBS Comp----Durham Sexdrive----Fulldrive II----Boss Loop Station---TC Modulator----TC Nova Delay---Swith box. > The Demeter tube DI is an incredibly natural sounding piece. The TC pedals blended in stereo are amazingly spacious.more
When players talk about magical pedals that provide that "something extra" or "special sauce," one can be forgiven for some eye rolling. But the truth is, some pedals really do have that mojo goin' on. This pedal brings the mojo - hard. I used to use it as a lead boost until I realized I simply HAD to leave it on all the time. It's that good.
