The Akai Drive3 Distortion is a guitar foot pedal that allows for creating customized distortion tones that include vintage crunch, modern cut and everything in-between. Distortion is controlled by a combination of Level, Tone and Distortion knobs, along with a Fat, Boost and Warm Drive3 switch. Select Fat, Boost or Warm to enable soaring leads, lush chords and great rhythm tones, with further adjustments available via the three precision knobs. True-bypass switching is available for when the guitar signal needs to be unaffected. The pedal is housed in a heavy-duty polished stainless-steel chassis for rugged and reliable operation.
