Effect: Overdrive

Expect to Pay: $250

Distributor: Kink Guitar Pedals


Recommended For:

Rock/blues/pop, and players wanting two independent drive tones in a single pedal.



Both sides of the pedal (808 style on the right and Guv’nor on the left) have independent controls, giving you the ability to tweak and then switch either on or off (or run the 808 into the Guv).



Easy enough to stomp, tweak and get some tones going, but also has some extra features for further shaping (hard/soft clipping).



Kink look like they’ve put some time and work into the Straya Drive, and the bogan Aussie graphics definitely set it apart from most drive pedals.



Can open up possibilities on a single channel amp and presents a lot of tonal options when combined with other pedals and/or your existing rig. Boosty, slightly broken TS-style sounds through to bigger ballsy drive.
