Bendrive

This is a 2-channel overdrive/booster. Overdrive side uses AD712 IC with BAT41 Schottky/2N7000 mosfet -clipping and from there signal goes to a hot mosfet booster. Perfect for those creamy/screaming leads! Both channels can also be used independently.

I did special front panel graphics for this one as they are printed in reverse on the backside of a 1,5mm thick transparent plastic sheet..

Sound samples by Jukka-Pekka Berg:

“Bendrive’s tone, gain and voice controls were at 3 o’clock. The boost control was at 9 o’clock, which is about unity gain but gives the sound a nice sparkling top end boost. The guitar used in the clip was a Gibson Les Paul ’59 Reissue into a Kingsley Deluxe 32 combo amplifier loaded with a pair of Celestion G12H Blackback speakers from 1976. The clean channel of the amp was used, so all distortion is from the pedal. A touch of delay from TC Electronics Nova Delay and a hint of the amp’s own spring reverb was added to help the guitar blend nicely in the mix. The recording microphone was a Sennheiser e606 hanging in front of the amp from a microphone cable approximately in the center of the speaker cone.”

“Gain at 12 o’clock. The guitar used was a gibson Custom Shop ES-355 with its volume backed down a bit.”
