    Hey guys! If anyone is on the market for an awesome overdrive/boost pedal than I highly recommend "The Protodrive". Did a little clip to demo it. In a mix and not in a mix.
    It has a lot of options and settings and is very versatile.
    If you like what you hear and are interested go to www.facebook.com/airiseffects and talk to Rick. He's a cool cat and will answer any questions you may have. These are a good deal.

    1st and 3 clips are without the pedal engaged and 2nd and 4th are with it engaged.

    Vouching for our own RickyCigs on here!

    Right now, he has an overdrive called the ProtoDrive that actually has been well received! A clean boost is currently in-the-making, and a bass overdrive is also coming soon!

    Here is Rick's quick runthrough of info for the prototype of the ProtoDrive pedal:


    One thing that I must mention is that the final version has a different layout/config than that of the prototype!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now, here are some demos that I threw together for the pedal.

    To save space in this thread, I'm just going to ask that you read the description of the videos, as opposed to me typing it all out or copy-and-pasting everything. The description of the videos contains all technical info and specs.

    If you prefer Soundcloud as your medium, I'm also embedding Soundcloud audio clips below each YouTube video.

    This might not give you pedal GAS, but if you're in the market for a super versatile overdrive that really can put your classic Ibanez Tubescreamer or Maxon OD808 to shame and actually has some serious tone to it behind its flexibility, then stay tuned to Rick for more! And stay tuned to me and Identity Device (Ian) for more as well!

    mod edit: we get you're doing promotion for for Airis, keep it to one thread or they're all getting deleted

    This overdrive pedal ("The Protodrive") really does a lot for the orange micro terror. I used my Ibanez 7 RG7621 with a dimarzio DSonic bridge and it was pretty muddy as you'll hear. The protodrive tightens it up quite a bit.

    If you are interested in the pedal go to www.facebook.com/airiseffects and talk to Rick to place an order or have any questions answered. He's an awesome guy and I highly recommend doing business with him!

    I would like to point out to the mods that IdentityDevice is sharing these of his own free will. He is not an employee or paid promoter of any kind. Just a satisfied customer. I don't want him to suffer because of something I did.

    That being said, thanks for the demo! I love hearing my pedals in action. Especially on such a neat little amp!

    Do it! The MT is fun as all get out and a great little thing to have around for jamming practice, etc.
