CostaLab | Moon Drive Overdrive Distortion V2
- Germanium Transistor/Diode
- Moon Drive V1
The Moon Drive is a pedal made taking inspiration from the most classic of distortions: the Big Muff. Its circuit is composed of four stages of gain, two of which house the clipping circuits, which are its greatest strength.
Made with germanium diodes, they offer a very personal tone, round and with a great deal of harmonics. The tone control is of the DTC type, ie Dinamic Tone Control. In practice it interacts with the gain control: when high levels of distortion are used, the sound becomes rich and open, therefore the tone must be dosed accordingly; on the contrary, with little gain, the sound is more closed and less harmonious, opening the tone compensates for this completely natural characteristic. The Moon Drive is equipped with an always active class A buffer, characterized by very high input impedance.
