The DEATH DRIVE features 4 controls, there are therefore a range of available remedies.

EGO: Controls the overall volume of the effect. The DEATH DRIVE is a high output device, suitable for pushing tube amplifiers further into breakup.

DESTRUCTION: Ranging from subtle to extreme, the destruction control dictates the severity of the distortion. At lower settings it provides natural, tube-like distortion full of vintage character. At higher settings the distortion becomes pleasantly compressed and saturated whilst still retaining clarity and individual note definition.

DRIVE: Operates as a secondary gain control. Used in conjunction with the Destruction control it allows you to fine tune the exact saturation of your signal. The two gain controls are interactive and provide a wide range of tonal remedies.

MOOD: Controls the pre-gain tone shaping of the distortion. It has been deliberately voiced to provide useful tone shaping within the full range of the control, meaning there are no useless settings at either extreme.

All Intensive Care Audio pedals are built in London, England, using high quality components and featuring soft touch, relay based trued bypass.

Supply using only 9v centre negative supply.
