Martin Crunch Drive:
is a 9V-battery-powered pedal designed to emulate that "hard to get" crunchy blues tone from a good tube amp.
The Attack (mid) and Edge (treble) controls give access to a variety of flavours within this type of distortion style without compromising sonic quality.
If subtle crunch is your thing, you'll find plenty of cool chord and light solo options here which - regardless of EQ - always sound crisp and lively perfect for jangly chords and light blues soloing.
The Carl Martin Crunch Drive is true bypass and features an AC adapter jack.

GUITAR WORLD (USA) January 2000. Crunch Drive, Rock Drive, Heavy Drive, & Noise Terminator
The problem with many distortion pedals is their attitude. Most expect to be used as the main source of your gain-enhanced tone and show little respect for the characteristics of your amp. These Carl Martin pedals don't assume you want to transform your beloved, saggy AC30 into a spandex-ripping Triple Rectifier. Instead, they simply give you another slice of what you already like.
GUITARIST (UK) May 1999. Crunch Drive, Rock Drive, & Heavy Drive
There's hardly anything to complain about with these pedals. The Danish designer these are created by Holm Malmquist - certainly knows a thing or two about tone and how to cram it into little black boxes, so anyone looking to augment or upgrade their pedalboard would do well to take a look.
BASSIST (UK) CM Pedals in General.
High performance, low-noise pedals which can be used live or in the studio are rare beasts, but that's the case here. Pedals which work at this level of efficiency and are this well made, with this level of pedigree aren't cheap, but in the same breath aren't expensive either. If you appreciate paying for quality, the Carl Martins wont be found wanting.
