Model Overview:
The current production D1 Overdrive marks a culmination of years spent refining the circuit, prototype production and field-testing feedback from professional working guitarists. From the beginning, Dickinson's goal throughout this journey was to bridge the gap between player, pedal and amp by creating an all valve overdrive that runs at proper voltages. Because of this design approach, The D1 will respond to picking dynamics and volume changes, just like the onboard preamp section of a quality valve amp.
Under the hood, the Production D1 employs a carefully thought out combination of circuit board-mounted and handwired top-shelf components. These are housed in a beautifully bombproof stainless steel enclosure to ensure a lifetime of frequent use.
The simple, yet versatile control set now uses fully sweep-able pots instead of rotary dials for the top and boost controls for even more finite tone sculpting. The D1 can be dialed in effortlessly for subtle signal sweetening valve compression, dynamic corpulent crunch tones and rich singing lead lines with the boost engaged. Like all Dickinson products, the D1 Overdrive is handmade in the UK – using the artisanal construction methods that vintage British-built audio equipment is famous for. The question now becomes… what live or recording scenario wouldn’t be better with a time-tested, all-valve signal sweetener?
