Giganteum Drive

Redefining flexible overdrive


Giganteum Drive

Description

The Giganteum Drive was designed from the ground up to provide uncompromising versatility in a small footprint. Its two independent channels offer a complete range of discrete drive tones from boost, to light grit, all the way to raging fuzz. 

 

The Germanium side features a "girth" control for treble or full-range boost. This side is fine-tuned to play best with a tube amp on the verge of breaking up. You can add some vintage color to your tone, or slam your amp with 20dB of boost. 

 

The Silicon side is all-original, using a combination of discrete MOSFET and BJT gain stages for either a light, vintage-voiced breakup, or the boxy thunder of a cranked tube combo. Your standard gain and volume controls are supplemented with an adjustable low pass tone control and a "fat" switch to add low mid content. 

 

Stacking both sides opens up an entirely new world of tonal combinations - with low Girth settings you can get tight distortion, and with high Girth settings you'll get unexpectedly heavy fuzz. The Giganteum Drive shines in its almost infinite flexibility, allowing the user to unlock new depths of tone with slight tweaks. 

  • Switchcraft Jacks
  • High quality true-bypass stomp switch: nickel plated lugs, phenolic plastic casing, precision engineered switching mechanism, high-tension spring for smooth stomping
  • Enclosure printed and drilled in the USA
  • Hand wired and assembled in California
  • NOS Germanium transistor in Germanium circuit
  • High-quality Wima/Kemet/Nichicon capacitors
  • Standard negative ground power--this pedal plays nicely with others!

Power

We always recommend isolated power supplies. If you daisy chain effects on one supply (ours can handle that despite being Germanium PNP powered), you may inject noise, ripple, ground loop hum, etc. This effect requires 9v, center negative power. In other words, the industry standard power supply.  

 

Controls

  • Top-mounted jacks, input on right, output on left
  • True-bypass stomp switch is on/off, indicated by LEDs
  • "Master" controls the amount of volume for the Silicon side
  • "Tone" controls the low-pass filter for the Silicon side
  • "Gain" controls the amount of distortion on the Silicon side
  • "Ring" controls amount of boost from Germanium side
  • "Girth" controls the frequency response of the Germanium side, more bass clockwise, more treble counter-clockwise
  • All controls are interactive, so tweaking is encouraged!
