The new HOBO DRIVE from T-Rex Effects is a spectacular overdrive pedal that’s built to put you firmly in the driver’s seat. HOBO DRIVE is so configurable and so gorgeous sounding, it’s hard to imagine that no one has thought of it before.

At its core, HOBO DRIVE is a 2-stage preamp controlled via traditional PREAMP and MASTER volume controls. A TONE control lets you customize your overdrive sound right from the start, shaping its timbre your exact tastes.

On top of the preamp core, you get a very useful boost function for soloing, single-note lines, you name it. This not only makes HOBO DRIVE a more versatile pedal, it can eliminate the need for an external boost pedal, if you normally use an overdrive sound for your lead playing.

When you kick your HOBO DRIVE into boost mode, it takes your overdrive sound up to the volume level you’ve set. But HOBO DRIVE lets you do something else: An ingenious PRE/POST switch gives you the option of boosting your signal before it hits the preamp – to add even more drive as you raise the stakes with extra volume.

The reason T-REX call's it the “Hobo Drive” is primarily based on its versatility. The HOBO drive is the migratory laborer of your rig; it lends a powerful hand on demand. Its raw vagrant tonal disposition is reflected in the many versatile drive sounds this pedal can create. There's a whole world of musical inspiration that's waiting to unfold. HOBO drive never lets you settle down, it inspires your love of the musical journey above its destination. It reacts as a 2-stage Pre-Amp with the extra muscle to boost it over the top. From a bluesy sound to a real gritty grungy sound this hobo drive lives up to its name. Overall a modern classic overdrive pedal that combines yesterday, today and tomorrow in innovative ways.
