Distortion that inherits the legendary "Marshall Shred Master" sound


OXFORD DRIVE is a high gain distortion designed by Radiohead's equipment database site "the King of Gear (tkog)".

OXFORD DRIVE was inspired and developed from a UK shred style high gain pedal loved by many alternative artists. In addition to fully reproducing the juicy midrange of the original and the overwhelming drive tone approaching like a wall, the function has been expanded to fit the modern scene. Equipped with modern functions such as more gain, more volume, EQ tuning, and true bypass.

Added "LED clipping mode" as a bonus not available in the original. You can also enjoy Guv'nor style sounds.

A gloomy stage, a ghostly and intelligent guitarist scratching a telecaster comes to mind. 90s Alternative Rock's "that guitar sound" revives to the present age.

BASS

Adjust the bass of the bass sound.

CONTOUR

Not a mid control. Adjust the treble and mid frequencies to change the overall EQ shape of the pedal. Turn to the left to emphasize the middle and reduce treble. Turn to the right to scoop the midrange and emphasize the treble.

TREBLE

The TREBLE control changes greatly depending on the CONTOUR position, so it is recommended to adjust it in conjunction with the CONTOUR control.

GAIN

Adjusts the amount of distortion GAIN.  The maximum gain of the original Shred Master is 4 o'clock. Higher gain settings than the original are also possible.

VOLUME

Adjust the volume of the VOLUME pedal. Normally the unity volume is at 12:00, but it depends on the setting and clipping mode. Pay attention to the volume, especially in LED clipping mode, as it can provide a much larger boost than the original.

LED CLIP

Clipping diode switch When the switch is in the right position, standard diode clipping is performed. Shred Master style distortion sound with strong compression. The switch on the left puts you in LED clipping mode inspired by Marshall Guv'nor . More open and wide drive sound and increased volume compared to diode clipping

SPECIFICATIONS

  • 9VDC negative tip power
  • up to 8mA power consumption
  • true bypass
  • pedalboard friendly top mounted jacks and small enclosure


What is the Shred Master?

In 1989, Marshall introduced the first drive pedal, The Guv'nor. Later in 1992, three drive pedals—Blues Breaker, Drive Master and Shred Master—were subsequently released. The Shred Master, which was released with the promise that "You can get the drive of a JCM800 even with a small home amplifier," had the loudest and most over-the-top distorted tone of them all.
