The Muse Driver – Andy Timmons Full Range Overdrive is an overdrive workstation that allows you to orchestrate everything from a clean boost to a treble supercharger, a chimey tube-amp overdrive to a square-wave, germanium fuzz generator and more. This pedal combines a three-control blues driver circuit with two switches for the voicing Drive and Tone characteristics. Robert and Andy developed these switches to give players a broad range of drive tones. The Drive toggle engages two germanium diodes for a smoother, slightly compressed drive. Switch to Andy’s clipping style for a brighter and more articulate attack. Every part of the circuit has been optimized for tone and the demanding needs of a recording and touring artist such as Andy Timmons. Simply adding the Muse Driver to your pedalboard will likely make your rig sound better. This pro sounding overdrive can be switched between true-bypass and buffered bypass at any time.

- Buffered Bypass or True Bypass – Change instantly depending on your rig’s needs
- JFET Transistors, Germanium Diodes and Op-Amp Gain combine to form harmonically rich overdrive
- 9 to 18 Volt operation for huge dynamic range and headroom
ANDY TIMMONS – TONE SWITCH
The Muse Driver gives you two tone control circuits to choose from. When the Tone Switch is up and in the AT Position the tone control features Andy’s preferred voicing of the low-end response of a drive pedal. Each note in a chord is clear and articulate. If the Tone Switch is down and in the RK Position that features the legendary Phat Boost in the low-end frequency response, perfect for pushing up vintage or single coil pickups.
FULL RANGE OVERDRIVE – GERMANIUM TOGGLE SWITCH
The Muse Driver circuit combines JFET saturation, diode clipping, and op-amp clipping in order to create its harmonically rich tone. Drive Switch UP for AT Clipping – this mode features asymmetrical LED diode clipping and is Andy’s Super AT Mod sound. When the Drive Switch is Down for RK Clipping – the circuit features two germanium diodes for clipping. This mode can sound a bit like a vintage fuzz pedal with a softer, smoother feel.
MUSE DRIVER – BOTH BUFFERED BYPASS & TRUE BYPASS
The Muse Driver features our precise buffer for noise-free switching. We have developed a buffer which not only makes your rig sound better, it gives you silent switching with no tone loss. Switch between true-bypass and buffered on the fly. Simply press and hold down the foot switch for two seconds and the pedal will switch between true-bypass and buffered bypass! You can decide what works best in your rig.
