General

 

THE EBS MULTIDRIVE STUDIO EDITION IS A 'CLASS A' OVERDRIVE PEDAL, CAPABLE OF PRODUCING SUSTAIN, OVERDRIVE AND MANY OTHER USEFUL 'TUBE AMP' DISTORTION SOUNDS.


 

Spice up your sound! The MultiDrive is considered an overdrive, more than a distortion pedal. The mode switch selects Tubeism, Standard or Flat overdrive type sounds. All with a preserved bottom since the pedal let through the low frequencies untouched and solid. With guitar, it provides a slightly overdriven bluesy tone with lots of sustain and body. This is the pedal to spice up your sustain!

 

Evolution. The MultiDrive was first introduced in 2001. The 2008 edition improvements added 3 dB higher headroom, higher sensitivity and new analog circuitry with higher dynamics and lower noise, as well as true bypass switching technique. The latest Studio Edition, introduced in 2015, comes with a complete new design, optimized signal path, new signal relay switching technique, overvoltage protection up to 18V and the possibility to power the pedal with anything from 9-12V DC.

Review from Bonedo.de (in German)

5 out of 5 stars

"Der EBS MultiDrive Studio Edition-Bassverzerrer ist das charakterlich neutralste und dadurch auch universellste Overdrive-Pedal der EBS-Familie. Klanglich ist es mit druckvollen Mitten ausgestattet, die dafür sorgen, dass selbst stark verzerrte Basssounds definiert und tonal erfassbarer bleiben. Vor allem Vintage-orientierte und weniger drastische Overdrive-Sounds gehören zu den Stärken des kleinen "Unruhestifters". Ein weiterer Vorteil: Das EBS-Pedal verhält sich für einen Verzerrer äußerst geräuscharm!"
