Pigtronix FAT Drive is just dripping with
touch sensitive overdrive that responds to every
nuance of your playing style. Multiple cascaded
gain stages enable the FAT drive to cover sounds
ranging from slightly overdriven to rich saturation,
all while retaining musical dynamics and the original
character of your instrument.
FAT Drive takes a futuristic analog approach to
create complex crunch tones using CMOS clipping
and a variable low pass filter for tone shaping.
Bringing the tone control all the way clockwise
takes this filter completely out of the circuit for total
transparency and robust low end. Rolling the tone
control back smooths out the highs, leaving ample
mid-range bloom and bottom end punch.
A Hi / Lo toggle switch brings additional versatility
to the FAT Drive’s wide-ranging palette of overdrive
tones, altering the gain structure for enhanced crunch
and soaring leads. The FAT Drive features true
bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt
power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior
headroom, clarity and overall output.
