Calculated at checkout

Pettyjohn Electronics builders of some of the finest handmade guitar pedals in the last few years. Incredible detail to construction and tone with NOT ONE shortcut taken. These are creations of tonal art thru and thru and the PettyDrive 2 is no exceptation. The Iron and Chime are two wonderful pedals on their own but toghther they product the ultimate in tonal arsenal for any guitar player be it jazz, country or fusion. The best of everything in one - Turn your clean amp into a multi-tone channel switching monster

The PettyDrive V2 brings the original Signature dual overdrive pedal up to speed with a list of upgrades

introduced in the Foundry Series IRON and CHIME, all housed within a new pedal-board friendly box

featuring a new, more durable powder coat finish and highly requested control labels!

Channel 1: CHIME

The CHIME channel is designed to function as a full-range, preamp that goes from sweet clean tones

into full saturation. As the gain is increased the circuit has been voiced to add a light, sweet,

harmonically rich breakup reminiscent of a pushed British style tube amp. You may hear significant

amounts of natural compression that feels much like power amp “sag” at higher gain settings. Channel 1

is equipped with an active tilt EQ built with Orange Drop capacitors for authentic amp-like tone! There

are two 3-way mini-toggle switches for easy, quick adjustment of the clipping circuit and low frequency

response. The Gain control range of the CHIME in the PettyDrive V2 has been increased by 2.5 times for

pushing the circuit harder. There is also a new Boost control that can add more sparkle and grit to the

tone when engaged!

Channel 2: IRON

The IRON channel is designed to be your go-to second stage overdrive. It has been meticulously voiced

for smooth yet powerful tone reminiscent of a cranked American style amp. Thicken up leads or add

power and punch to any chord without harshness found in many overdrives. You may find that it needs

very little tweaking with almost any guitar or amp. The Tone knob is an Orange Drop powered high-cut

that is highly effective for taming those bright guitars or amps. There are two 3-way mini-toggles again

to adjust internal settings on the fly. The top switch adjusts the clipping configuration and the bottom

toggle is a 3-way low cut that switches between 3 lower cutoff frequencies. The IRON also has a Clean

Mix knob that features an analog preamp with true internal summing for dialing in warm touch-sensitive

tones. The upgrades on the IRON include extended high-end range and it now includes an extra

JRC4558 chip so the user can swap between the stock OPA2134 in the gain stage.

External Insert:

The PettyDrive V2 includes an external effects insert! The middle mini toggle switch activates the send

and return jacks on the rear of the pedal so you can insert any chain of effects in between the CHIME

and the IRON. You can also use this loop for a variety of creative routing options including changing the

order of the IRON and CHIME and using each side of the PettyDrive V2 in a programmable true-bypass
