Video: Umbrella Company Hitchhike Drive Demo

There's a certain gnarled, purring tone one can get from a dimed tweed Fender Deluxe. Maybe you haven't had the good fortune to play through such an amp (they can, of course, be pricey), but you've no doubt heard that sound on the records of Neil Young, especially those he's made with Crazy Horse.

The Umbrella Company Hitchhike Drive promises those Deluxe tones and more in one, affordable stompbox.

As Andy says in our video above, the pedal allows you to choose between "the sag and harmonic richness of a tweed Deluxe, the bold low-end of a '59 Bassman, and the headroom and tightness of a '60s Twin."

This made-in-Japan pedal offers subtle or fully saturated drive in a compact stompbox, with an easy three-way toggle switch to choose which kind of amp your prefer.

From there, Volume, Tone, Bass, and Treble knobs give intuitive control over your sound, while the Saturate switch gives instant high-end compression and sparkle.
