I’ve seen these blow outs in the past, and when they happen, the pedals are usually gone pretty quick. This is a crazy deal on the Carl Martin Hot Drive and Boost pedal at Amazon. This pedal lists at $308. You usually see it available for $216. Right now, it’s on sale for $86.40. Yeah, you read that correct, $86.40 at Amazon.com! At the time of me writing this post, there were only 4 left in stock, so if you want one, you’ll need to jump on it.
Here is the official description of the Carl Martin Hot Drive & Boost:
Carl Martin Hot Drive’n Boost has been carefully designed to imitate the sound of a good old-fashioned distorting Tube-Amp. The Hot Drive’n Boost is the perfect choice for that crunchy blues tone, with plenty left over for a great hard rock tone as well. With the BOOST feature the Hot Drive’n Boost is a “TWO IN ONE” pedal. That allows you to get that extra “kick” (up to 20db) for solos to really stand out. The Hot Drive’n Boost has a built in regulated (+-12V) power supply. This enables us to design circuitry of the highest quality with maximum headroom. The low output impedance insures a lo noise connection, and gives improved working conditions for the guitar amp.
