Offered is another fabulous guitar Overdrive pedal from the folks at Providence.......these are some great pedal builders who have many fine quality effects. This particular pedal is the "Silky Drive" also known as the SLD 1F. With vintage style tube amp tone structures which produce classic sounds with a truly natural smooth and articulate edge. Also boasts 'passive tone controls circuitry ' which add to the natural transparency whether in low gain or high gain settings.While the company has changed models along the way, this is still one fine example of their products. It is built like a tank, has a quiet switch which is smooth and very responsive without having to stomp on it or hear any noise when engaged. They have something called 'vitalizer' technology used in all their pedals and this may be the added transparency factor. This particular pedal is far quieter than most we have tried in all settings, the output is less also so you can push it harder.....I found this lower output gain to help stack better with other pedals than most other brands which when stacked seem to counter each other and just add a ton of noise. All my gear is kept at the studio and has very little use and as such is MINT, comes with box and documents as pictured. Just cleaning out the herd and trying many effects regularly for new projects, so have fun with it and 'turn it up' !!!check this out: https://youtu.be/elHTTeuWGdQshipping to continental US only, paypal payment within 48 hours of acution end.
