Totally unique analog signal path

Typical overdrive pedals (even high-end models) use a single gain stage to achieve their effect. But that's just not how real tube amplifiers work, which is why Pigtronix built their FAT Drive with a series of cascading gain stages. The result is a totally dynamic overdrive that responds to your playing style - just like a real amp! If you're used to conventional overdrive effects, prepare to be blown away when you plug into a Pigtronix FAT Drive.

Tone-shaping lowpass filter

With the tone control set all the way clockwise, the FAT Drive gives you that totally open, full-range tone of a guitar plugged right into a cranked tube amplifier. Start dialing in the tone, and Pigtronix's lowpass filter starts rolling off the highs. That lets you use the FAT Drive to carve your midrange and and open up a whole new world of bottom-end punch.

Change voicings with the flip of a switch

Here's something you can't do with an every-day overdrive pedal - flip a switch a totally re-voice it. In fact, it's because Pigtronix built the FAT Drive with multiple cascading gain stages that this is even possible. The way it works is by changing the overall gain structure. In "Lo" mode, the FAT Drive gives you a more wide dynamic range, breaking up a bit more the harder you hit it. In "Hi" mode, you get the pure madness of a high-gain amp cranked to 11. Talk about versatile! That's just one more reason your pedalboard isn't complete without a FAT Drive on it.
