Cinnamon Drive Features

Dual stage clipping circuits

The first stage of this boutique overdrive pedal uses a custom soft clipping circuit voiced to cover clean to mid-gain overdrive. The dual overdrive pedal second stage builds upon the first stage and stacks a hard-clipping circuit to add gain and tightness.

Highest versatility with the fewest controls possible

Dial in two totally different overdrive tones with independent volume controls, a true dual overdrive pedal experience.

A lot of dynamics and a natural tone

Both stages share the same passive tone control, retaining bottom end and mid-range while softening high frequencies. Highest headroom and dynamic range due to its power supply circuit to increase internal voltage.

True bypass relay switching

With this boutique overdrive pedal you’ll never get any signal interruption even if your power supply or battery fails. Intelligent true bypass relay switching system which constantly monitors voltage supply (both battery or DC Jack input) and switches itself to true bypass when it detects a drastic drop in voltage.

Easy pedalboard setup

Custom enclosure designed to match Smart Track® pedalboards. This dual overdrive pedal also comes with a super-strong Velcro® pad for standard pedalboards.

Setting up on a pedalboard

Take advantage of our custom enclosure to attach the effect pedal to your pedalboard.

We incorporated a proprietary locking system which allows the user to fasten the pedal without the need of using the typical hook and loop method. This custom fastening system follows the same philosophy behind the Smart Track fasteners but integrated in the enclosure reducing the space occupied by each pedal.
That translates into more pedal density for the same space, and who doesn’t want that? We strongly recommend you to take a look at our line of pedalboards, which are the best complement to our pedals!

Add the anti-sliding rubber pad at the bottom of your pedal, specially shaped for this unit. Surface must be clean and dry before applying adhesive pad.

Loosen the 2 thumb screws to unlock the bottom pieces out of the pedal. Place the pedal, inserting the bottom pieces inside the grooves.

Move the pedal to its final position. Tighten the two thumb screws with your hands or with a screwdriver.

You can screw the pedal directly to your pedalboard with wood bolts through the enclosure side holes.
