Over a period of months, Brian made some circuits and sent them off, there were a couple of "tweaks here and there to be made and then finally, when official "proto #2 landed it went straight into the live rack and out on the H20 world tour. That prototype has now been made into the Brad Paisley signature "Paisley Drive and goes with Brad wherever he goes. When you see Brad live, or performing live on the TV, and you are blown away by his overdriven tone, its the Paisley Drive.
The truly great thing about this pedal is that its not only Telecaster style guitars that it works so well with, it brings the best out of your Strat or anything you may have loaded with hum buckers. You no longer need to have individual pedals for your guitars; the Paisley Drive will make each one sing.
The inbuilt tonal controls, the presence and mid contour switches, will make this pedal the single most versatile and complete overdrive pedal you have ever owned. In fact, we believe it might be the last one you ever buy. Brad Paisley:-"we actually recorded this (pedal) in the studio, you know, trying it out. I turned up a Train wreck Amp that I've got and compared the sound of the distortion and it was very, very similar. And that's a very good test because any time a pedal can mimic a great overdriven amp then you're on to something.
