Fire Custom Shop Carpe Diem Overdrive Pedal

Written by

Elliot Stent

Well, our friends at That Pedal Show say that this is one of the best pedals that they've ever heard!

It's a British amp in a box very similar to our friends in black and gold. It's highly responsive that cleans up beautifully but it really shines when driven hard with a clean tube amp.

Natural Sound

So you have your beautiful guitar and a lovely clean amp, the last thing you want is a pedal that will suck the tone out of that. The Carpe Diem has true bypass to ensure your signal stays pure, but because of it's dynamic range, you can still hear the sound of your guitar coming through with the overdrive/distortion.

Hot Rod/Classic

The toggle in the middle of the pedal will allow you to dial in mild british overdrive or high gain distortion. So you can use the pedal as either your main distortion, your overdrive sound, or you can stack it with a boost pedal for the ultimate flavour.

Built in Brazil

Fire Custom Pedals are built in Brazil by a small team who ensure that every one of their pedals comes out tour-ready. They're all guitarists who wanted to create pedals that could withstand a touring schedule and so they're all built with the highest quality components. With true bypass and amphenol jacks, you are ensured that they're made to last.

Here?s What Fire Custom Say

This pedal was born a long time ago by the need for an overdrive that sound like a tube amp without using valves and on a pedal format.
You have in your hands the fruit of the work of people who love music, tone and quality, which combined with the years of experience will enable you to express your heart through your sound.
The Fire?s desire is that this pedal make you: ?Carpe Diem. Enjoy the day, make your life an extraordinary thing ?- Dead Poets Society (1989)
