WILDE DRIVE

Designed in collaboration with Will Wilde a musician who has taken the harmonica way beyond its blues roots since he first emerged on the music scene in 2010. Always pushing forward, evolving and redefining his sound, Wilde’s hard-edged harmonica steals the spotlight from the traditional rock guitar, with a sound that owes as much to Slash or Gary Moore as it does to Sonny Boy Williamson or Little Walter. 

The Wilde Drive requires an 18vdc source sold separately.

ABOUT
The Wilde Drive is designed to bring an edgier sound to harmonica, mixing vintage and current design techniques and components. The pedal takes an aggressive solid state overdriven signal and slams a subminiature pentode tube, resulting in a hard distortion saturated with harmonics that works great for the harmonica. We then add in a touch of hall echo effect to fatten the tone just a bit, which is switchable.

Please be aware that the subminiature tube, like all tubes, can be microphonic and make a ringing noise when the bypass buttons are hit, any noise should be of low volume and subside quickly. Because this pedal is intended to be an "always on" pedal, this issue is not a factor when performing.

POWER
The Wilde Drive requires an 18vdc power adapter. The DC adapter requirements are a regulated 18vdc with a minimum 200mA output and a 2.1mm x 5.5mm connector with a negative center. Current draw is 147ma. Power adapter is sold separately.

This Pedal is Nasty…In a Good Way!

I used it at a gig last week and it put an overdriven crunch on my solo that was Awesome! It’s exactly what I have been looking for.

Wild drive - the first all-round carefree pedal for blues harp

Order and delivery went smoothly and quickly. Plug it in, make the settings and it sounds great. Finished tinkering with several overdrives/preamps, equalizer, delay, etc. My equipment. Shure SM58 > impedance converter > Wild drive > T-Rex Octavious > Pipper Raptor (Fender Tweed Deluxe Clone) Thank you very much
