The Horizon Devices Precision Drive is a new overdrive pedal by a company started by Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor. The pedal was created to combat the lack of drive pedals made for high gain and digital modelling rigs.
The Modern Metal & Rock Overdrive
It's got a built-in noise gate to control any crazy feedback or unwanted noise. It tightens up your tone and gives you more attack or even use it as a simple noise gate.
The Volume and Drive are straightforward to use and don't have any dead spots. You can keep the gain down for when you’re using gain on the amp or use it to drive an already clean amp for percussive mid-gain tones.
The bright control can add presence to darker sounding humbuckers and the Attack knob will do just that. Increase the punchiness of the pedal. It's made for metal and rock and so it'll work really well with lower tunings and even extended range guitars like 7 or 8 strings.
The noise gate is specialised and was not added as an afterthought. In fact, the guys re-designed it 7 times to get it right! It's made to control your gain without destroying the dynamic.
