Intensive Care Audio DEATH DRIVE

All-Analog Overdrive and Distortion


Unfortunately this product is discontinued and sold out, please contact us about alternatives!

The DEATH DRIVE is an original, all analogue overdrive and distortion pedal for the treatment of Bland Guitar Syndrome and Excessive Aural Dryness. Used regularly it can provide effective relief from these, and other music and instrumentation related conditions. All Intensive Care Audio pedals are built in London, England, using high quality components and featuring soft touch, relay based trued bypass.

Main Features:

  • Overdrive and Distortion Effects Pedal
  • All-analog dual gain Drive – ranging from subtle volume push, to natural, tube-like Overdrive or compressed and saturated Distortion
  • Pre-Gain Tone control (MOOD) for full-range tone shaping
  • Interactive primary (DESTRUCTION) and secondary (DRIVE) gain controls for a wide range of tonality
  • Relay-based true bypass with soft-touch switching
  • Built in London, England
  • Powered via (opt.) 9V DC power supply
            (2.1 mm plug, center -, current draw 65 mA)


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

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.

The DRIVE knobs 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.
