The Suhr Shiba Drive overdrive pedal delivers a smooth, responsive overdrive with a wide tonal range to enhance both your rhythm and lead playing. Blending modern innovations with versatile sound-shaping controls, the USA-made Shiba Drive gives you refined overdrive tones to make your guitar cut through any mix.

Dial In Versatile Overdrive, From Bluesy Crunch to Sustained Leads

The Shiba Drive overdrive pedal lets you shape just the right amount of overdrive for everything from bluesy crunch to singing lead tones. The Drive knob sweeps from subtle breakup to a rich, compressed distortion, while the Level knob balances your output. Finding your perfect tone is easy with the Tone knob, which lets you shift from warm and smooth to bright and cutting. The Smooth switch also tailors the voicing, with options for mild high-end roll-off to a more pronounced taper for rhythm chunk and violin-like leads.

Pronounced Midrange Lets Your Tone Stand Out

With its tailored midrange character, the Shiba Drive overdrive pedal ensures your guitar tone cuts through the mix. The pronounced midrange focus brings out the sweet spot of your guitar's tone, keeping your sound clear even alongside vocals and other mid-heavy instruments. Whether you're playing live with a band or tracking layered guitar parts in the studio, the Shiba Drive's signature midrange makes your guitar soar.

Reliable Performance With True Bypass and Low Battery Protection

The Shiba Drive overdrive pedal is built for seamless integration and reliable performance. It features true bypass via a transparent relay, eliminating pops when switching the pedal on and off. The unique low battery monitor also alerts you to low power, automatically engaging true bypass if voltage gets too low. With the FX Link, you can integrate the Shiba Drive into more complex rigs and pedal switchers for expanded control options.

Intuitive Interface Puts Tone-Shaping at Your Feet

The Shiba Drive overdrive pedal features an intuitive interface, putting essential tone-shaping controls at your feet. The Drive, Level and Tone knobs give you immediate control over the amount of gain, output volume and overall voicing. The three-position Smooth switch lets you fine-tune the high end to suit single-coils or humbuckers. With its hands-on control, the Shiba Drive makes it easy to customize your overdrive on the fly.
