Marshall Drivemaster Reissue
From bluesy overdrive to bright, cutting distortion — the Marshall DriveMaster pedal could deliver in every situation. Today, original units are rare collectors’ items, but they’re just too good to hide away and leave in the past. That’s why Marshall have brought their DriveMaster back as part of their Reissue Series of stompboxes!
Based on Marshall’s original The Guv’nor pedal, the DriveMaster simplified its circuitry and added a touch more gain at lower frequencies. The bass, middle and treble controls offered detailed tone-shaping too; altogether creating a heavy-duty, reliable stompbox with a wide range of sounds on tap for various applications. This accurate reproduction lovingly follows the exact specification of the original, hand-built in the very same factory that’s been making Marshall amplifiers for over sixty years. The iconic look has also been accurately recreated, right down to the finish of the control knobs and the unique chassis shape.
