Gamma Bacchus Dynamic Drive

The Gamma Bacchus Dynamic Drive is part of a new series of affordable bread-and-butter pedals released by a company that’s established enough to be sold through Guitar Center, and mysterious enough to have no online presence whatsoever (we can’t find a website nor a social media page for it!).

Of the two overdrives on their roster, the Bacchus (a pedal named after the Roman god of partying, drunkness and drama) is the heavier and more versatile one, thanks to a wider gain range and two selectable voices for Normal and Fat.
