The Providence Flame Drive is an extremely versatile overdrive pedal that can deliver anything from sweet, silky overdrive to edgy overtone-rich distortion. It features fast attack response that effortlessly follows the most detailed picking nuances, as well as one of the most coveted characteristics of Free the Tone overdrive effects: eminently musical, amp-like distortion that is never flat or muddy. The Providence Flame Drive can add some serious sonic fire to your sound!
The FDR-1F Flame Drive features a newly developed Vitalized Noiseless Switching Circuit (V.N.S. Circuit) that effectively minimizes switching noise that can occur when the effect is switched on or off while maintaining optimum sound quality.
Due to the adoption of the new double-contact grounding circuit (D.C.G. Circuit), by inserting a monaural plug into the output jack, the shield (sleeve) of the plug provides two points of contact to the pedal's ground circuit. By increasing the area of the point of contact, it becomes more difficult for a loose connection to occur, and provides the additional advantage of improved sound quality.
Boosts the low frequencies. Press the switch in to engage the BASS BOOST function.
The innovative VITALIZER® circuit is included to prevent signal degradation. The VITALIZER® circuit is active even when the effect is off, ensuring that a degradation-resistant signal is being output at all times.
