Horizon Devices is the company started by Misha Mansoor (of Periphery fame) to sell his incredible overdrive pedal, the Precision Drive.
The Precision Drive by Horizon Devices is an interesting concept purely because it takes an age-old idea of a TS style overdrive and completely revamps and modernises it for modern metal and djent crowd. It’s not necessarily made to be used as an overdrive on its own - though you could definitely use it like that. Instead, it’s been designed to be stacked with an already driven amp and to tighten up the sound of that amp distortion. It’s also got a noise gate on board so you can play super tight metal riffs without worrying about fuzzy distortion ruining your guitar tone.
Plenty of R&D has gone into the making of this company and the pedal – over 400 hours to be precise! This commitment, combined with the fact that they redesigned the noise gate 7 times over, will show you how much Horizon Devices and Misha himself care for their users. We hope to see plenty more from the company in the near future.
