    Product Description

    The Horizon Devices Precision Drive is a modern, cutting-edge overdrive pedal. Tailored towards high-gain metal players looking to tighten up their sound, the Precision Drive is built specifically to be used in conjunction with super-hot amplifiers and digital modellers.

    Designed by Misha Mansoor, founder of modern metal titans Periphery, the Precision Drive came to fruition so that his specific needs could be satisified. After spending many years experimenting with overdrive units in order to craft his heavy percussive style, the Precision Drive is the culmination of all of that experience.

    With over 400 hours of R&D spent on designing the circuit, the Precision Drive is a unique, forward-thinking overdrive pedal.

    Modern Control Set

    The Precision Drive features two of the staple controls you'd expect to find on an overdrive - Volume and Drive. The Volume control is self-explanatory, letting you adjust the total output of the pedal, whilst the Drive increases the amount of dirt. 

    To use it the way Misha would be inclined to, keep both controls fairly low when placed in front of a high-gain amp. This will essentially "tighten" up your tone, not adding too much gain but rather shelving some flubby low-end, providing more mid-range definition and giving a more saturated sound. For Misha's signature technical riffs, the precision drive delivers all of the clarity needed to cut through in a frantic mix.

    The Attack control, however, is a more specific feature. Manipulating the response of the pedal, increasing the Attack will give a more immediate punch, suited for fast palm-muted chords. For extended range 7 or 8 stringed guitars, this is a key addition.

    The Bright control gives you even more flexibility. Adding presence to darker-sounding amps, the Bright knob delivers plenty of high-end sizzle. Taking away further low-end sag, this EQ control balances well together with the Attack. 

    Noise Gate

    The built-in noise gate is one of the most thoughtful aspects of this pedal's design. In fact, the Horizon team re-designed it 7 times to get it perfect! Taming any of the crazy feedback that can occur when placing an overdrive in front of a distorted amplifer, the noise gate can really tighten up your tone.

    Made to control your gain without destroying the dynamic range or response, with the gate control maxed out you'll get an insanely fast cut on the feedback, eliminating it almost immediately. For percussive playing with frequent and intermittent stops, there'll be no audible noise between notes.

    I didn't know how badly I needed this until it actually arrived. My ENGLs tone has gone from good to outstanding, amazing pedal for high distortion.

    Great pedal. Really tightens you the bottom end. I have a dual amp setup and the pedal gives a nice boost to my guitar signal.

    Exactly what I was looking for, awesome for low tuned metal riffage. Just a great overdrive pedal with many tonal options, the noise gate is a nice touch too

    The precision drive is a good pedal. Pretty much does as advertised but only nitpicks are it could use more more gain and yhe noise gate isnt that great.
