Suhr’s new Shiba Drive Reloaded Mini overdrive pedal brings all the tones of its larger sibling and crams them into an even smallerm more pedalboard-friendly format.
Suhr Shiba Drive Reloaded Mini overdrive pedal
Suhr do make some great effects pedals and their Shiba Drive is one of its more popular products. Now the company has made a smaller version. The new Shiba Drive Reloaded Mini overdrive pedal has all the tones of the laregr version, Suhr says. It has controls for Drive, Tone and Level, plus a two-position Smooth switch. The latter provides a hi-cut to tame the higher frequencies and ‘smooth’ things out.
The video demo below gives a nice overview of what the pedal can do. Like most Suhr pedals, it seems to have plenty of usable tones on tap. I’m a big fan of Suhr effects pedals, and I own a few that get regular use on my pedalboard. The issue is I have is that you can normally only squeeze so many on a medium-sized board. That isn’t going to be so much of an issue any more; this thing is pretty compact.
The Shiba Drive Reloaded Mini overdrive can be powered from a standard 9-Volt centre negative power supply and is true-bypass, so all pedalboard friendly stuff.
