When I created the Ecstasy, I was working on creating a pedal that would go from clean tones to distorted tones while adding a bit of warmth. I wanted something for myself that would be dynamic, have a great sounding “gritty” tone to it yet be able to respond to the volume knob like a tube amp. I’m a big fan of dynamics and if a pedal can’t work with me dynamically I just can’t use it. Out of this search, I developed the Ecstasy Drive.
The Ecstasy is my take on that elusive “dumble” tone and feel – smooth creaminess yet crunchy when you need it to be. Very responsive tone controls that interact with the pedal – they don’t just ‘color’ the sound. They actually affect the response and feel of the pedal, just like a great tube amp.
