The T Drive is a sonic recreation of the legendary Trainwreck™ Express amplifier. Rooted in the tradition of British amps from the 60's & 70’s, Trainwrecks™ are famous for their fast pick response and exceptional dynamics that range from chimey "Vox" style cleans, to a soaring "Plexi" overdrive. To most accurately recreate the harmonic complexity of the Trainwreck™ amps in a stompbox, we took painstaking measures to find a "real deal" Trainwreck™ Express to compare for sonic accuracy. Additionally, longtime Trainwreck™ owners were consulted for guidance, providing us with recordings and feedback on A/B comparisons between their Trainwreck™ amplifiers and our T Drive Prototype. Our quest to create the the most accurate "Wreck-in-a-box" has resulted in the T Drive: a pedal with dynamics, harmonic complexity, and "voice-like" overtones reminiscent of the amp it was inspired by.

Definitely enjoying this pedal. A lot of drives want to be tube screamers and I don’t really bond where they have their mid bump. This pedal reminds me more of a Klon style circuit with a more dynamic eq variable that changes with your playing. Cleans up great.

This is my third Vertex Pedal, and I'm very happy with the T-Drive B-Stock. Very cool overdrive, and very responsive to pick attack, and Guitar Knob adjustments. Awesome Pedal.

Love the pedal

Bought a b stock of this model and this pedal rocks. Cleans up very nicely rolling the volume knob on guitar, all the guts you could want, and should make any amp sound amazing. Built well and easy to use. My second pedal from Vertex and hats off to Mason, Hunter and the whole Vertex family

A "wow" pedal right out of the box. With a Les Paul through a Blackface RI Twin, it is very inspiring. Great dynamics, touch sensitivity, push, and amp-like feel? Yep. Absolutely great for 70's tone. This is staying on my pedalboard and immediately goes into my top tier ODs.

Vertex is producing some amazing stomp boxes. This is my second one and now it's going to change my pedal board completely. Pedal is very attack sensitive and guitar volume control can take you from a nice clean boost that is slightly overdriven to rolling the volume full in and it howling. Only tested through 65 Twin up to this review but will run it with a DC30 as well. Nice work again Mason and team. Big fan.

Terrific pedal. One of the best sounding overdrive/fuzz I have owned. I have A/B tested it against several other pedals in the same general tonal signature and it comes out on top. Definitely one I will use for years to come. Ver well built too.

I tried this pedal at summer NAMM in Nashville and was super excited to get one when they came out. I have only had mine a few weeks now, but I really like it, and the versatility it has, going from a great boost pedal all the way up to scorching Marshall Plexi about to blow up "brown" sound, and everything in between. It is super touch sensitive and really reacts to how you pick. I tried it out with several guitars, using humbuckers and single coil pickups and found tones that I can use for all of those guitars. Great pedal.
This is the most dynamic and touch sensitive overdrive pedal I have ever played.

This is a first impressions quick review. Received the pedal this morning and immediately spent a couple of hours playing it. I was struck by the dynamic response, fatness of the tone and how well it cleans up when fiddling with the volume of the guitar. Just coming out of first band practice where I got to push it a bit, and my first impressions have been confirmed and some more. The pedal always sounded fat, dynamic, and cut through nicely without having too much top-end or bottom-end - or lacking them as a matter of fact. I really thought that I would be missing a Tone knob, but I don't as the pedal seems to adapt well to the variations on my amp. Very impressed so far, so much so that I just ordered a Steel String Clean Drive.
