LPD Sixty 8 Drive V2
When I started designing the Sixty 8 Drive, I had a long list of goals I wanted to achieve. I wanted something that sounded and felt like my favorite 1968 Marshall Plexi 12,000 series. I think it gets pretty close. Super low self noise. Buffered bypass using true copper switching with a super transparent bypass tone. Completely natural note decay, no strange fizzy artifacts. Highly versatile.
It’s very dynamic, responds to the guitar volume control and pick dynamics very well. Has a great amount of sustain without needing a ton of distortion/fuzz to get it.
The Gain control also functions as a shelving EQ. As it’s turned up, the low frequencies are attenuated slightly. This is to keep the bass tight as gain is increased.
The Low control is pre-clipping and designed to offset the shelving filter on the Gain control. You can add back in all the low frequencies that the Gain control removes if you want.
I personally build, sign and date each Sixty 8 Drive.
