(2nd gen)

Classic 808 remake in true point to point hand wired form, plus a handy clean boost

The legendary king of overdrive

The Sally Drive Classic has the original TS808 tonal characteristics but with various improvements in dynamics and overall performance. It is harmonically rich, touch sensitive, articulated, and more amp-like in overall performance.

Amp-like tone and response

It responses to your picking velocity brings out dynamics like a real tube amp and even with gain set at max it would maintain superb sensitivity. Also cleans up beautifully with guitar volume roll off. Great string to string separation brings out beautiful harmonics on complex jazz chords

The output buffer has been tailored a bit so it sounds beefy but not muddy on Les Paul or other darker sounding guitars. It's more transparent than the original 808 and you can definitely hear the wood tone from your precious guitar. 

Get that extra decibels you need for solo

The clean boost is post-drive and can be engaged independently to boost anything that comes after the Sally Drive. An internal trimpot adjusts the gain for the clean boost (0dB to 15dB)

Sally Drive Classic DC is loaded with only the finest components and is carefully crafted to ensure reliable service on your board for a life time. 

 

Sally Drive Classic and Advanced share the same characteristic but they have different strengths and shine in different aspects. 

Sally Drive Classic = OD + clean boost

If you have a decent amp that needs to be pushed hard or just add some extra texture, Sally Drive Classic is the one to go for.

It is designed to simply sound good with minimal controls and is more suitable for those who already have a  balanced rig. 

Sally Drive Advanced = OD/Preamp

If you use a strat or tele but sometimes need extra low end for riffing, or you own a Les Paul but don't like the muddiness when strumming chords, Sally Drive Advanced is designed just for you.

With selectable pass filter caps and mid boost/scoop controls, you have unlimited flexibility in tonal shaping.  It's specifically designed for those of who prefers to bring only 1 guitar to their gigs.
