Gear Watch: EBS MetalDrive

EBS Metal DriveEBS has released another new pedal, the EBS MetalDrive is a high-gain distortion pedal designed specifically for the bass. The MetalDrive is the eighth pedal in the “Black Label” series released by EBS.

The pedal was inspired by bassist John Moyer of Disturbed. EBS had been modifying a MultiDrive pedal for Moyer who required overdrive as well as metal distortion. The result is the MetalDrive, designed to “deliver pure, mean, metal distortion for bass – and beyond!”

Features include:

  • Universal High Gain Distorsion
  • Tubeism, Standard and Flat modes
  • Control for Dist and Output
  • True Bypass

The MetalDrive is available now and retails at $199. You can check out more information on EBS’s website.
