Tech 21 Double Drive 3X Now Available With Private Stock MOD

Posted Oct 20, 2011 at 8:00pm

Clifton, NJ (October 21, 2011) -- Tech 21’s Double Drive 3X distortion pedal has undergone a Private Stock MOD to feature more aggressive tones, a tighter low end, and a wider Level taper. It has been revoiced for more hard rock and metal tones rather than classic, bluesy style tones. This pedal will be available for a limited time at no additional cost. It is distinguished from the original by a MOD stamp on the pedal and packaging.

The Double Drive 3X uniquely offers two different types of distortion that can be used individually or cascaded together. Each is based on the power amp output stage of specific tube amplifiers: Drive A yields a “Class A” distortion, rich in even harmonics; Drive A/B provides a “Class A/B” distortion, which is rich in odd harmonics.

WIth a 100 percent analog signal path, the Double Drive 3X is digital only in its programmability. You can store three custom sounds, even on the fly. You simply tweak the controls, double-tap on one of the three footswitches, and it’s saved in that location. You can also choose to reserve one channel for a clean boost, up to 10dB, via the Level control by setting both Drives at minimum.

Other features include active 3-band EQ, a 1megOhm high impedance 1/4” input (same as traditional tube amps use), a 1kOhm low impedance 1/4” output (drives long cables without loss of signal integrity), and smooth, silent-switching custom actuators.

Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional power supply, the Double Drive 3X Private Stock MOD has an MSRP of $215.00.
