    EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Bass Drive Deluxe Bass Pedal Product Description

    The Billy Sheehan signature drive deluxe is an extended version of the previous signature model, developed in close collaboration with Billy himself. Its a complete analog design with exceptional features to turn it into your own 'signature' pedal.

    More gain. The new Billy Sheehan Drive Deluxe offers significant more gain than the original version. It is also equipped with a 'Boost' footswitch for the Drive to really push the gain to the extreme when needed. The level of boost can be adjusted internally by a trim pot.

    Phase inverter switch. This new feature changes the character of the sound a lot. By activating the inverted phase you will notice significant more low-end when using the drive compared to the original pedal.

    Swappable op-amp. There are a lot of drive pedals that are considered to be classics. Many of them use some variation of a standard type of op-amp circuit design called an '8-pin dual inline op-amp'. The new EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Drive Deluxe offer the user the ability to change this 'chip' to one that offers different characteristics to the Drive effect. A list of suitable chips will be listed on the EBS website, and there might be a few different EBS branded chips coming later as well. The chip is accessed easily by removing the bottom plate of the pedal. It's attached to the board by an IC-standard socket, and does not require any soldering to be swapped.

    All the features from the original version are still there!

    The loops. You can still benefit from the super cool Drive and Clean Loop features. Use the Clean Loop to send a clean signal to an octave pedal and obtain optimized tracking while the Drive channel is still in use. Or put an Equalizer in the Drive Loop to fine tune your distortion character. There are countless options to use these loops in creative ways; these are only two examples to get your mind spinning.

    The built-in compressor. The Billy Sheehan Signature pedals comes with a built-in compressor that you can leave off, in Mid or High position. The compressor helps to maintain definition of tone while you're using heavy distortion. It also helps to blend together the distortion and clean tone better. There are two internal trim pot's that let you change the Threshold value and adjust the level of compression in the MID position.

    The controls. Both pedals include four distinct controls. Drive sets how hard the distortion 'engine' will work. TONE changes the character of the drive sound; LEVEL sets the level of the drive sound, and CLEAN sets the level of your clean tone.
