Famous for its woody, organic and beautiful sounds of saturation, these legendary British amplifiers, the Super Lead & Super Bass, have been delivering one of the all-time classic sounds for almost 50 years. Players like Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and countless other relied on this type of tone for their signature sound.
Xotic have recreated this vintage masterpiece in a rugged small enclosure. The SL Drive offers very amp-like response and cleans up nicely with a roll of your guitar’s volume knob. The internal dip switches allow you to choose the sound characteristics of both 1959 models. The Super Lead setting offers a brighter tone with more gain, while the Super Bass setting has more low end with less high end. Its compact design conforms nicely to the smallest space on any pedalboard.
The SL Drive is equipped with true-bypass switching and eliminates any signal interference when switched off. Power requirements are either 9V battery or AC adapter (sold separatelyl). This Limited Edition model comes in a chrome finish.
Now with Xotic’s Voltage Doubler, you can power the SL Drive with higher voltages allowing for various amounts of cleaner headroom, resulting in a bigger airier tone. Just plug in any 9-volt power adapter into the Voltage Doubler and choose between 15V or 18V. Now you can rock out at 9V, 15V or 18V.
