Spiral Electric FX Unveils the Yellow Spiral Drive Pedal
Spiral Electric FX has just released the Yellow Spiral Drive, which they say ranges in sounds from “a clean boost to a crunchy monster.” The company is headed by circuit designer Tom Cram, who worked at DOD/Digitech and helped create The Carcosa, Rubberneck, and FreqOut pedals during his tenure.
“The circuit is based on the DOD 250 Overdrive Pre-Amp with choice alterations,” the company writes. “The addition of the Nanolog N2 Quantum Junction, the Girth control, as well as selectable clipping sections adds a useful and modern spin to this classic circuit. The Yellow Spiral sounds fantastic on bass with none of the low-end loss commonly associated with this circuit.”
A three-way toggle allows for changing the voicing of the drive between the N2, the N2 plus LED, and the N2 plus Silicon.
Bassist Jonni Lightfoot gave the Yellow Spiral a demo on bass:
The Spiral Electric FX Yellow Spiral Drive is available now for $250.
