Drive Series effects are designed to be connected in front of a “clean” channel inputs of guitar combos or amplifiers, and do not have a cabinet simulated output as the Legend Amp Series. These pedals allow guitarists to obtain warm, crisp, natural tube sounds of their favorite high gain amplifiers, while preserving individuality and tone of the instrument and equipment.
In the Drive Series, AMT uses new original circuitry solutions developed by AMT specialists based on real actual tube stage emulation and response. The result is bright, rich, full, and powerful distortion sounds.
The AMT C-DRIVE is able to emulate the unique sound of Engl’s third cousin Cornford characterized by clear tone, diversity and minimalism. This pedal provides wide overdrive range from slight crunch to biting high gain*.
When using Drive Series Effects, the resulting sound is mainly influenced by the combo or amplifier you use, as well as the speakers installed in your cabinet. The Drive Series were designed for guitarists who do not need or desire the speaker emulation of the Legend Amp Series.
Drive Series pedals provide massive gain, and tonal perfection; just as the tube heads they represent!
