Nordvang's take on the mythical Klon and Bluesbreaker sounds!

The '83 Drive packs two classic overdrive sounds in the same box.

The pedal is Nordvang's take on the legendary Klon overdrive and the original Marshall Bluesbreaker pedal.

Henrik Nordvang's inspiration when designing the '83 Drive came from his deep love for these classic circuits.

Both pedals played an important part in John Mayer's live sound throughout the years.

The '83 Drive is divided into two sides: side A (Bluesbreaker) and side B (Klon Centaur).

In the middle, you'll find a toggle switch allowing you to flip the internal order of the effects.

When designing the '83 Drive, Nordvang stayed true to the original circuits, but gave them extra flexibility.

The Bluesbreaker side was made True Bypass and the headroom was increase.

The Klon side retains the original circuit's beloved Buffer, but a Clipping switch was added (flipping between 2 pairs of rare diodes).

Like all Nordvang Custom pedals, the ’83 Drive is made with a no compromise philosophy.

Each pedal is built with an extreme attention to detail using carefully selected premium components.
