    Product Description

    You will be amazed at how much character and tone comes in such a small package! But the Xotic SL Drive Pedal really does prove it is not all about size, use the "super lead" setting to produce a scorching bright tone with tones of energy or try the "super bass" for a thicker more bass driven sound. With everything from a true bypass switch to an internal dip, the Xotic SL Drive Pedal has it all and aims big!

    Here's what Xotic say about the Xotic SL Drive Pedal:

    Famous for its woody, organic and beautiful sounds of saturation, these legendary British amplifiers, the Super Lead & Super Bass, have been delivering one of the all-time classic sounds for almost 50 years. Players like Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and countless other relied on this type of tone for their signature sound.

    Xotic have recreated this vintage masterpiece in a rugged small enclosure. The SL Drive offers very amp-like response and cleans up nicely with a roll of your guitar’s volume knob. The internal dip switches allow you to choose the sound characteristics of both 1959 models. The “Super Lead” setting offers a brighter tone with more gain, while the “Super Bass” setting has more low end with less highs.

    This compact design is a powerful tool for the working musicians.

    The SL Drive is equipped with true bypass switching and eliminates any signal interference when switched off. Power requirements are either 9V battery or AC adaptor (optional)

    It really is a Marshall amp in a pedal

    Mr Paul Smith11th May 2019

    I chose the SL Drive from a huge amount of drives on the market as I wanted something that fit on a small pedalboard, could provide a Marshall style sound at all gain levels as an alternative to amp gain, and which could work well with the BB MB pre-amp also by Xotic. This pedal really delivers. Although it takes time to set up and find the best sounds for personal preference, it provides a variety of useful tones across the spectra of volume, gain, and equalisation. The design is just so thoughtful and I like the possibility of running it at 18v, although at the moment 9v is better to my ears. Recommended as a piece of gear that should fit with most set-ups.
