Inspired by one of the best Xotic Effects design, the Soul Driven delivers creamy boost and overdriven tones that enhance harmonics while maintaining your guitar tone´s transparency,
This pedal brings excellent value by replicating a perfectly tuned amp’s tone and response, offering robust control over your mid frequencies, fattening up your tone while simultaneously punching through the mix. The tone control adds clarity without ever becoming harsh at higher settings (nothing says “good circuit design” like than that kind of feature).
If you’re the type of guitarist that spends a reasonable amount of time searching for that tonal sweet spot, that precise mix of boost, compression, and overdrive, this is the right build for you.
But what’s the secret that allows this pedal to achieve that sweet equilibrium point? Well, the Exotic Soul has enough push (not the traditional amount that a booster usually has) to send a tube amp into overdrive. Gain control might don’t go as far as to give you heavy distortion or a crazy amount of fuzz. Still, it has more than enough to delight with a wide variety of rich, saturated overdrive tones perfect for modern rock, classic rock, blues, and more. And finally, the compression has the ideal amount to deliver rich sustain and smooth harmonics without ever sounding flat or lifeless.
It’s not easy to reach that level of perfect balance, and the result is that Exotic sound that brings Soul to your playing.
