The Drive N5 is an evolution of Sinvertek’s original Distortion No. 5, which met considerable acclaim thanks to its ability to mould itself to the frequency response of any amp via a four-band EQ and bevy of switches. 

The Drive N5 sweetens the formula with an improved dynamic response when you roll back your guitar’s volume knob, and an expanded range on every control.

There’s a ridiculous level of gain on offer, which you can tailor to sound more American or British using the three-way midrange selector switch, and if you fancy more definition, the top-end switch allows you to increase the pick attack on the high-end. 

The pièce de résistance is the mode select switch, which you can set so that hitting the footswitch adds a volume bump, gain boost or both: one stomp activates the boost and a double-tap bypasses the pedal. It’s a killer feature for a stompbox this size and does away with the need for an additional pedal for solos. 

It’s hard to say that any pedal is the ultimate drive, but the N5 is such a straightforward route to great tone that it genuinely does add an extra distortion channel to any clean amp.

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
