"I designed the SEX DRIVE pedal to fulfill the very particular needs of good friend Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan, ARC Angels, David Bowie, Grammy winning producer, all around musician). The goal was to build a “clean-boost” pedal that would supply additional bottom end and sustain when needed. The pedal would have to provide a boost that would not alter the original quality of the amplifiers natural tone. Most important, was to not add a “nasal” tone like the other pedals in his effects graveyard. The result was the SEX DRIVE pedal. Though it wasn't my intention to go into production of effect pedals, the demand has been so overwhelming I found I had no choice".

Simple,,,the BEST I have ever owned! I have many of the best pedals from the best builders but the Sexdrive is tops. Every amp I put it in front of sounds better. Nothing is this transparent. Also works great in amp loop to kick the power tubes into sweetness. Plays nice with others (pedals) too!

The Sexdrive is a decent pedal. It produces a nice subtle compression and warm boost but not nearly enough of the boost to push me up front in the mix (I play in a 4 piece classic rock/blues band, no real heavy stuff). I swapped it out for the new Xotic SP and never looked back. The SP is a cleaner tone with a wonderful mix feature and a significantly louder boost

I do a lot of research before I buy. Even so, I sometimes end up disappointed in my pedal purchases. Not this time...
My Durham Electronics Sex Drive stays on all night. It adds that fatness, especially in the lower mids, and a slight "wool around the note" with just a hint of compression. I'd say it's a compressor for people who hate compression. I place mine last in my chain, so there's nothing between it and my preamp tubes.
By the way... Did I mention that I'm a bass player?
