The ‘Bluebird Drive Germanium’ is a simple but effective overdrive that keeps the original timbre of the guitar and takes it one step further – no tone knob needed. Highest build quality and an innovative charging circuit make the ‘Bluebird Drive Germanium’ the perfect choice for professional and semi-professional musicians as well as demanding hobby guitarists.


Rechargeable Via Micro-USB

The Bluebird Drive is the world’s first analog guitar pedal, that is rechargeable via Micro-USB. Just plug it into your Smartphone wall charger or your computer and in less than 2 hours it will be fully charged. The battery lasts more than 100 hours of playing time.
The charging circuit is designed to prolong the battery lifetime and ensure safe operation. It includes temperature monitoring, undervoltage and shortcircuit protection and CC-, CV- and Trickle-mode charging.


Germanium Clipping Diodes

Rare soviet D9D germanium clipping diodes give you a sound that goes from warm overdrive to fuzzy leads. The asymmetrical clipping stage combines the characteristical low clipping threshold of germanium diodes on the positive half wave with higher output level on the negative half wave (achieved by connecting a silicon 1N4148 in series to the germanium D9D).


True Bypass, True On/Off

The ‘Bluebird Drive Germanium’ comes with true bypass and true on/off wiring to make sure your tone is not affected and your battery is not drained when the pedal is turned off.
