Brute Drive (BD-1) is a new distortion pedal designed by EWS. Compared to it's extreme cousin, Fuzzy Drive (FD-1), the BD-1 is designed for smooth, classic distortion sounds. With intuitive controls and a classic layout design; Volume, Gain and Tone, this versatile pedal also incorporates a Boost Switch for amplifying the low-mid/gain up to 10db.
Housed in bullet proof aluminum along with its true bypass, the Brute Drive (BD-1) will be an instant classic.

Value Quality Features
There is a tiny internal pot to adjust the 'boost' function up to 10db which is good for dialing in the sound you want for lead tones.
Overall I like the sound and feel of this pedal over the Boss DS-1 because it seems more natural and smooth sounding. Give is a shot, you'll like it. (Posted on 7/10/2012)
