“At last, a pedal that takes the tried-and-true overdrive to a whole new level.”
-Guitar Player Magazine
Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive is an overdrive pedal featuring a unique “clean” control. Its overdrive circuit provides the same tone as a vintage ‘808. Then the clean control blends back in a boosted direct signal. This restores the attack and feel which is lost in a highly compressed overdrive circuit.
The Sparkle Drive utilizes the same concept as layering two amps, one clean and the other saturated. Of course with the clean control turned down, you get a classic overdrive tone. All the way up, it provides a super transparent, 100% clean boost.
And just like every Voodoo Lab pedal effect, the Sparkle Drive features true bypass switching, a heavy-duty metal switch and on/off status LED.
It’s hand built from the finest components available and is backed by a 5-year warranty.

- CLEAN – Blends the boosted clean signal with the overdrive. All the way down is overdrive only. All the way up is clean only. In between is a blend of both clean and overdrive.
- VOLUME – Sets the output level.
