Fuchs Plush Drive Pedal

The Fuchs Plush Drive was designed for those who want the true tone, response and feel of boutique tube amps like the Dumble, Two-Rock or Fuchs, at a reasonable price. The unique 4-knob circuit gives you unprecedented control over the most important aspects of your tone. On the input end, the gain and touch controls allow you to set just the right amount of distortion and pick response, based on your guitar and playing style. On the output end, a subtle tone control and level control allow you to set both your overall lead tone and solo level. A unique bi-fet integrated circuit and matched discrete FETs are designed to emulate the smooth overload and musical second order distortion of a tube circuit quietly, musically, and reliably. Coupled to a good clean amp it's awesome. Add it to your amps overdrive for a super thick overdrive tone you won't know how you lived without before. Quiet enough to put in front of an overdriven amp easily.

Check out our exclusive demo of the Gilmour-esque tones within the Fuchs Drive:


The Plush "Plush Drive" pedal is a unique product, designed by Andy Fuchs. It uses a unique circuit topology which uses a combination of IC's and selected FET's, for lowest noise and the warmest tube like overdrive tones possible. The unit is activated when a standard 1/4" guitar cable is plugged into the input jack. If using this unit on battery power, the guitar cable should be unplugged when it's not in use, to extend battery life.

The Plush "Plush Drive" is a simple 4-knob overdrive pedal, which is easily dialed in for the widest range of overdrive tones. The gain control is set to control the amount of distortion. It can go from a mild blues style distortion, to a high gain Dumble style medium gain overdrive when set at maximum gain. The touch control is unique to this product. It sets the amount of touch sensitivity to your fingers and/or how hard you pluck the guitar. The tone control goes from a dark (full counter clockwise) tone, to a bright chimey tone as the control is turned up. Finally, the level control sets the final output level of the pedal. This control is used to set the solo level when the pedal is activated (LED on).

The input impedance is 1-Meg, suitable for most any guitar or signal source. The output impedance is approximately 1-K, which is buffered, to drive long cables as well as subsequent effects.

The Plush "Plush Drive" (like all Plush pedals) provides a hard wire bypass, which means when not in use (LED not lit) the input is connected directly to the output, with no loading of the signal, and no active devices in the signal path.

The DC jack on the side is a standard 2.1 mm tip negative adaptor input. A Plush DC adaptor may be purchased from your local dealer or any standard Roland style (or similar) DC adaptor may be used.

This pedal may be driven by a Plush "Pure Gain" pedal to achieve higher levels of gain and distortion.
