The VHT V-Drive does it all, boldly going where no other overdrive pedal has gone before:

From clean boost to creamy-smooth sustain to raging harmonic complexity,

the new VHT V-Drive overdrive pedal's unique controls offer an amazingly

wide range of tones and textures at an awesome value. In addition to

standard Drive and Volume controls, the VHT V-Drive offers four more

unique controls:


The V-Drive's 11-position Select switch provides ten different clipping

diode configurations plus a clean-boost diode-bypass mode. (Clipping

diodes are the heart and soul of nearly every classic overdrive pedal

design, and the type and configuration of these diodes defines the

overdrive texture and dynamic response character.)

The V-Drive's Select switch replicates the diode type and configuration

of the most popular overdrive pedals of the '80s and '90s as well as

some of today's most sought-after boutique designs. The V-Drive also

offers several new diode types and configurations for some fresh tones

for the future, enabling players to make their own unique contributions

to the advancement of the art of overdrive.


The V-Drive's Texture control adjusts the overdrive texture and harmonic

content. Working in conjunction with the Select switch, these two

controls provide an unprecedented range of fine-tunable overdrive

choices. Warm and smooth or bristling with harmonic activity, the choice

--- and voice --- is yours.


The V-Drive's unique 11-position Depth control fine-tunes the low-end

response to perfectly voice the overdrive depth to suit a wide range of

guitars, pickups, and musical styles.


The V-Drive's Tone knob is voiced higher than is commonly expected.

Unlike most overdrive pedals, it adjusts the treble content without

altering the midrange. The V-Drive's Tone control works in conjunction

with the Depth control to provide a wider and more useful EQ-shaping

range than conventional overdrive tone controls.


The unique Voltage control uses a special voltage multiplying integrated

circuit to increase the pedal's operating voltage for a tighter,

punchier, crisper, quicker-responding and more authoritative tone ---

ordinary 9-volt pedals can't match this new level of dynamic response.

The Voltage control can also reduce the V-Drive's operating voltage to

as low as 5 volts for a softer and spongier attack.

Like a box full of pedals in one, the innovative, revolutionary --- and

surprisingly affordable --- VHT V-Drive introduces the next chapter in

the quest for the ultimate overdrive. The new VHT V-Drive pedal has a

street price of $99.99 and will be available in late May 2011.
