Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod Overdrive Pedal
In Stock!

Add More Drive to Your Sparkle!

The original Sparkle Drive pedal quickly became a staple in many players' pedalboards. Voodoo Lab's Sparkle Drive Mod adds a new set of functionality to the old standard. Three new circuit mods give you a wider range of tones. You still get the original "clean" control that lets you blend a clean signal with your distorted tones. This restores the attack and feel of your amp, and gives you the feel of playing two amps at the same time.

New Sparkle Drive Mod Tones

The Sparkle Drive Mod has added three new distortion/overdrive circuits: Lead, Rhythm, and High Gain. The Lead circuit adds extra gain, smooth highs, and a thicker bottom end. Rhythm adds punch to the mids that is perfect for power chords and funk. The High Gain mod gives you an aggressive low end with pronounced highs. Of course, you still get the classic tone of the original pedal too. Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod - a classic just got better.

Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod Features:
  • Four distortion circuits: Stock, Lead, Rhythm, and High Gain
  • Clean boost circuit
  • True bypass switching
  • Made in the USA

Just what I needed

I play in a Church band so it's important that my clean sound be warm and pristine. I use a tele and I am able to have a large clean sound and mix in a moderate amount of raging distortion in the background which really makes me happy and doesn't alarm the church folk. Sounds great. Exactly what I was looking for.

Awesome value!!!

I don't understand why this pedal is not much more popular. After the price drop, it's an insane bargain. I bought mine over two years ago at the original price and I feel like it was a steal. Made In The U.S.A. and still affordable! I love the versatility of this pedal, it goes from 808 to ds1 with two stops in between and sounds as good as or better than the originals. I will say it has a midhumped voice that lends itself better to live gigging and practicing than playing alone, in other words, it cuts through a mix well. The clean blend is of course, a great feature. There are other overdrive pedals that have this feature as well nowadays, even though I think the original Sparkle Drive was the first. But they are all more expensive that the SPD and many are not Made In The U.S.A. Voodoo Labs has also proven to be a great company to deal with should the need arise. My daughter used the registration card as a coloring book so I sent an email asking for a new card and they responded the very next morning informing me that they had taken my information from the email and that my product was registered. They have a 5 year warranty to boot Excellent company, excellent product. I don't think I bought it from Sweetwater, but if I was buying it today I would.

Stop looking

The most important thing I can say is versatility. This is my first voodoo lab effect, but if they are all built to this quality it definitely will not be my last. Pedal is built like a tank and sounds great through my hot rod deluxe. It doesn't take away from the tone of your guitar like some overdrive pedals I've owned, it enhances it. With the switchable mods, you should be able to find that sound your looking for. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a overdrive. Thank you again sweetwater for the excellent service.

The perfect pedal to get the SRV tone

The sparkle MOD pedal is a high quality, sturdy pedal with a variety of tones. You may find yourself wanting another one for your pedal board just to tap into more sweet tones! The clean function is what makes this pedal stand out from other overdrives. If you just give the pedal a tiny turn on the 'clean' knob, you will get the SRV tone with ease, even if you are playing with humbuckers. SRV ran a few amps at a time to get that clarity to his tone. This pedal will do that job perfectly without having to run a multi amp setup. This is the holy grail of overdrive tones.

We all need more pleasant surprises!

I was ready for a "meh" moment when I plugged in the new Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive Mod that arrived just two days after placing my order with Jeremy. A Tube Screamer design with a blendable Clean Boost could win fans in a hurry, but respected friends had suggested it was a great idea that never paid off. I dropped it into my pedal chain, after the modded Dyna Comp, before the Boss RE20. Flipped the switch on the Egnater Rebel 20, put the 5 position switch on my '98 Telecaster Plus in the middle and started to play. Dialed in some dirt...hmm, sounds nice...good bite, not mushy, decent definition. Aha, let's try the Tone control...brightens up nicely...actually ripping pretty good! OK, what's up with this Clean Boost? YES!!! Varying the amount of boost even in tiny amounts delivered a multitude of tonal diversity. Just a slight clockwise twist and the nasty rip fattened up...keep turning and the dirt takes a back seat to a huge fat tone just perfect for a mellow blues riff. It wasn't until the next day that I even considered the 4 position MOD switch. I found myself gravitating toward the mid scoop setting, position 3. On my Tele, through my Egnater (and with my ears of course), it sounded really rich and full, no hint of thin tone one might fear. This is a keeper for me! I'll continue to experiment with the location in the pedal chain, particularly once I get my Radial Tonebone back onboard. Even if I hadn't dug the pedal, with Sweetwater's 30 day return policy, Jeremy would have taken good care of me, suggesting another pedal for me to try! How can you go wrong with a policy like that?
