    Here's the latest update on the D.C. Fluid Drive:

    the D.C. Fluid Drive Proto type is finally finished (it took 3 of them to get it right)

    below is the rambleosity I've been trying to boil down on the webpage for it, hoping to launch in a few weeks, try not to roll your eyes as its a process. It'll get to the point quicker I hope. Box is getting screened right now.. (maybe you can help me get to the chorus faster, I go on and on I know)
    ...
    "I've wanted to provide an overdrive that leaves the bass end of my guitar signal relatively neutral. No compression or squish please unless I want to dial that in, and dont boost my upper mids. It needs to keeps the high end clear and sweet, and the rest of the EQ Fluid. Oh and I want it to stack well w other preamps and overdrives, or rather I demand it. That's it, a really useful tone tool that meshes fluidly within the signal chain of guitar, amp and pedalboard.

    The D.C. FLUID DRIVE does just that: utilizing cut style EQ controls and a generous gain boost w very dynamic asymmetric clipping. You can slam the front end of the Fluid Drive w your favorite boost, drive and preamp. In fact this is designed to sit after my Brain Preamp pedals, spectacularly. 90% of the reason it exists is because I want a stackable light overdrive that plays better than most w semi-hollow body / hollow body guitars just as well solid body guitars."

    Gotta get me one of those new Dodges with that there Fluid Drive.

    When I was a kid, my father bought old heaps for our family cars and once he took me along for a test drive in an old Chrysler with a semi-automatic, which was a variation of the Fluid Drive. I'm still mesmerized. :) As I understand it, these cars were very popular in the used market because they hardly ever had transmission problems, even when they were very old. So hippies would buy them for a song and drive the wheels off of them, when everyone else had long since moved on to newer cars.
