Introducing the QuantumDrive Overdrive/Distortion pedal.
The first and only pedal to use the principals of quantum mechanics tunneling!
Use the Overdrive and QuantumDrive channels independently or chained together!
The Overdrive channel gives everything from subtle sweetening to TS-style drive to heavy crunch,
all while retaining your playing dynamics.
The Quantum Drive channel gives an over-the-top unique distortion rich in dynamic harmonic content - after all it's based on quantum physics!
We are currently developing a patented guitar pickup that utilizes a microwave field to detect
and amplify sound. The same principal can be utilized with a diaphragm or vibration sensitive ribbon
to pickup and amplify sound in general. A design using this principal has many major advantages
over the current designs of guitar pickups, such as no susceptibility to 60-cycle hum, Full-range
audio fidelity, and no deadening of the strings inherent in standard magnetic pickups.

Tony Levin (King Crimson, Liquid Tension Experiment, Peter Gabriel, etc.)
As a bass player, I'm very particular about how fuzztones work with my sound, and have
only found a few through the years that I could work with. So it was great to find that
Acoustic Imaginearing's QuantumDrive fits the bill just right. A very cool, well designed
[Tony used the QuantumDrive on the latest King Crimson tour]
Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings, Transatlantic, Kaipa, The Tangent, etc.)
I can hear it doing some of that Fripp/Hackett over the top dist sounds that my other pedals cannot.
[Roine used the QuantumDrive on the Transatlantic release "The Whirlwind"]
Brett Kull (Echolyn, The New Progressives, Always Almost, etc.)
I love it and use it quite often. The range of tone and sound option are amazing....
I can always find a sonic place with your pedal because of its diversity of tone.
[Brett used the QuantumDrive extensively on the newest Echolyn release]
"very cool pedal" - atsushi ikeda
It is one of the few pedals I've used, I would say, that doesn't completely kill your upper presence when the tone knob is down, making that setting more usable for me than others have been in the past. It's an interesting beast, and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite pedals. - Sean, Virginia Beach
Great sound! - Kathryn, Kansas City
