"I wanted to create a fresh, new overdrive that’s envisioned from the ground up as modern design for modern musicians. I knew I would need help, so I enlisted some of my friends from Wired Guitarist, because I knew I couldn’t found a company on my own. However, none of us are electrical engineers. I feel so lucky, because we got our first choice of pedal companies to work with us on the Precision Drive: MXR. To be honest, this was a huge relief. Making great analog pedals for over 40 years? Inventors of the Carbon Copy and Phase 90? I knew for sure that our production was solid. Then came the hard part. Over 400 hours of R&D going into the initial circuit. More than 6 revisions just on the noise gate (yep it has a noise gate!). That wasn’t enough though. I wanted Horizon Devices from the very start to be community oriented. What if I loved the pedal and no one else did? Everyone has their blind spots. I took everything friends, musicians, producers, and engineers have told me over the years, and combined it with specific input from over 4800 guitarists in the Horizon Devices community. That resulted in even more tweaks to the final pedal, but all of this work was worth it."more
"Santa came in early!???? This pedal PRECISELY(????) does justice to its own hype! Thank you @mishaperiphery for creating this! Will debut this baby tomorrow (later) with @faspitchofficial and @urbandubph at @the70sbistro for @udubpresents ' Early Christmas Event! DJENTY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!!! Yeah, I said it...DJENT! ???? #horizondevices #horizondevicesprecisiondrive #precisiondrive #fendermustanggt100 #fenderjazzmastercandjent #sodoeslespaulswithpafpickups"more
This pedal will put that mind-blowing vibe to your tone, packs that tight and clean stops thanks to its built-in noise gate. Best overdrive pedal I have.
Brings clarity to your overdrive, filtering out the muddiness. Built in noise gate without screwing up your long sustain. Great for all genres. I use it for metal, electronic rock and for recording. Really great stuff! Thanks to Misha and the MXR department.
Brings any amp to life--my Dark Terror, already completely brutal, was driven (if you will excuse the pun) to a whole new level. This pedal completely tightens your sond--no more flubby bass. I cannot recommend this pedal enough.
I use a Carvin Legacy Tube amp and Guitar Rig, and both have their quirks. The tube amp is buttery smooth, but it loses clarity if you crank up the second and third channel. This pedal has single handedly solved that issue, and opened up my amp to a world of new tones. With Guitar Rig, it takes the normal, trashy digital sound and gives it life. I was hesitant about buying this, but I shouldn't have been.
This pedal is by far one of the coolest sounding overdrives in my collection its great for metal the built in noise gate is impressive especially through my marshal jcm 800 its tight. Has lifetime warranty but its built like a panzer tank. misha perfected something every metal player should have in there rig.
