Robert Keeley is one of the best Guitar pedal designers and modders in the music industry. The worlds biggest stars and producers use his pedal from Steve Vai to U2 'The Edge'.
The D&M Drive is the perfect combination of Drive and Boost and was designed in collaboration with Robert Keeley and Daniel Steinhardt of The gig rig and Mick Taylor former editor Guitarist magazine, Hence the name D & M

The D&M offers a gorgeous sounding high voltage Boost side designed to impart the perfect tone on any amp that needs to be pushed. The Drive side offers everything you’d want in a powerful gain stage. From flat honest overdrive perfect for any set of chords to searing hot lead work with tons of sustain. The Drive is the perfect counterpoint to the Boost. Not only does each side of the pedal provide rewarding guitar tones, they can be used to stack together for an out-of-world experience. The pro switching system developed for the D&M Drive allows you to select which side of the pedal comes first and in fact you can configure the pedal to work in a pro-switching system like the G2 for independent pedal use

Boost Section

The boost section Is in between a clean boost like the high voltage Keeley Katana and a germanium modded professional overdrive Like the Red dirt. The D&M Drive delivers insane amounts of headroom and a distinct midrange voice to give you the lead voicing you dream of. From punch and clarity to a subtle and smooth in saturation which results in a warm overdrive and tons of sustain.

Drive Section

The drive section has multiple gain stages, from its lowest settings where you feel like you’ve discovered the perfect pro sounding overdrive to the roar of a high end amp. This side of the D&M packs a heavily saturated punch. The headroom on this side of the pedal is no slouch, use it to find that delicate balance between drive and amp saturation for the core of your tone. Turn up the Drive to give you a dynamic and searing valve like gain that excels in sustain. The Drive section is designed for quick attack with plenty of high and low end. Rich harmonic gain and sustain with dynamics is what this side offers.

The Switching

Daniel Steinhardt from The Gig Rig insisted that this was a versatile dual gain box that wasn’t limited in any way with its two simple stomp switches. You Select The Order! A simple toggle allows you to configure the pedal so that when both the Drive and Boost are on you decide which is first. If you want to have a smooth and round tone go into a richly driven amp-like gain stage….or if you want a highly driven tone with edge and harmonics to be then boosted with clarity and refinement, it’s your choice. Not only that, but Daniel had the engineers incorporate his idea for TRS insert cables so that this pedal would easily integrate into an professional switching system like the G2.

Now pedal board designers can configure the D&M Drive to act as two independent pedals, switching between either side of the pedal as it were its own stand alone effect.

In a Nutshell this could be the only Drive Boost pedal that you will ever need.
