From Keeley:

The D&M Drive is the perfect storm of Drive and Boost. The D&M offers a gorgeous sounding high-voltage Boost side which is designed to impart the perfect tone on any amp that needs to be pushed. No longer will you wonder what the perfect clean boost should be. As you roll things up, the drive morphs your tone into singing gold. A sexy and smoothly saturated midrange voice appears which breathes confidence. The Drive side offers everything you would want in a powerful gain stage. From flat honest overdrive that is perfect for any set of chords to searing hot lead work with tons of sustain. The Drive is the perfect counterpoint to the Boost. Not only does each side of the pedal provide rewarding guitar tones, they can be used to stack together for an out-of-this-world experience. The pro switching system developed for the D&M Drive allows you to select which side of the pedal comes first. What's more, you can configure the pedal to work in a pro switching system like the G2 for independent Boost/Drive use!

That Boost
Are you looking for something in between a clean boost, such as the high voltage Keeley Katana, and a germanium modded professional overdrive? If so, the D&M is the answer. To get things started, the D&M Drive delivers insane amounts of headroom. Then, a distinct midrange voice can be dialed in to give you the lead voicing you dream of. When dialed in, it can give you the punch and clarity of a horn yet be subtle and smooth in saturation in order to give you a warm overdrive filled with tons of sustain. Expect it to work well with any amp or rig.

That Drive
Multiple Gain Stages is where it's at. This drive delivers. From its lowest settings, where you feel like you've discovered the perfect pro sounding overdrive, to the roar of a high-end amp, the multiple gain stage Drive delivers a heavily saturated punch. And the headroom here is no slouch. Use it to find that delicate balance between drive and amp saturation for the core of your tone. Turn up the Drive to give yourself a dynamic and searing tube-like gain that excels in sustain. The D&M is designed for quick attack with plenty of high and low end. Rich harmonic gain and sustain with dynamics is what this side offers.

The Switching
Daniel Steinhardt from TheGigRig insisted that this was a versatile dual-gain box that wasn't limited in any way with its two simple stomp switches. You select the order! A simple toggle allows you to configure the pedal so that when both the Drive and Boost are on, you decide which is first. If you want to have a smooth and round tone to go into a richly driven amp-like gain stage... or if you want a highly driven tone with edge and harmonics to be then boosted with clarity and refinement, it's your choice. Not only that, but Daniel had the engineers incorporate his idea for TRS insert cables so that this pedal would easily integrate into a professional switching system like the G2. Now pedalboard designers can configure the D&M Drive to act as two independent pedals, switching between either side of the pedal as it were its own stand alone effect.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!
