GREAT Video below that compares the 18V and 9V !
The original Colorsound Overdriver was release in 1971 and ran on 9V to replace the Power Boost that ran on 18 volts. This was to tame the Power Booster as before the master volume mod the pedal was TOO LOUD at 18V so the 9V version was released. It was very popular and was used by such guitar superstars as David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, and T-rex Marc Bolan. The pedal was known for it's powerful overdrive but also it's incredible boost factor. If used directly after the guitar it could be used in a host of ways to pushing fuzz pedals, boosting signal or just balls out rocking.
Tru-Fi has now produced a hand-made recreation of the famous Colorsound 9 Volt Overdriver used by the likes of Jeff Beck and David Gilmour among the few. They run on a 9V battery or a negative tip power supply. We have produced the 9V Colordriver Overdriver to a true Power Boost replica down to the correct BC109 Transistors. You want killer Beck type overdrive crank the gain and push the master volume a ting over unity and watch your guitar tone explode. You want to push your amp for a fuller tone but still pretty clean, back the gain way off, and push the master all the way BOOM. You want to push a Big Muff for a David Gilmour transparent solo tone, push the master volume up in the Muff.
These are just killer reproductions, in a enclosure that is half the size (Ting bigger than a Boss Pedal) but while unique it still hints of the original. Inside the unit you will find correct "real" BC109 transistors that just gives it the genuine sound. The beauty of these pedals is the volume pot on the side so you can really push your amp, this gives it the shine of a driven amp mixed with the thick fuzz overdrive tone you want.
These pedals are tone machines, always try to use an amp that has some mild grit, the addition of fuzz at that point is the secret to tone.
Of course, the Tru-Fi Colordriver Fuzz/Boost is true bypass, sports LED, and manual !
Made in the USA!
NOTE: Swirl Picture OUT STOCK TILL SEPT - Each one is UNIQUE will slightly different than picture !

Color Driver is just awesome. So much I bought a second one. Just opens up the amp in a very nice way. I like One barely on (Candy apple red) and the other ( Chrome ) set for heavy gain. Thanks for this great pedal Bill Copeland on Jul 8th 2019
Touch sensitivity, great clean boost, overdrive and crunch, delicious fuzz with chord clarity and tone control. The Colordriver knocks it out of the park for the price. Turn down the gain and use it after a fuzz for clarity or let it do all the work itself. This pedal just works. Glenn on Jun 28th 2019
I watch a few videos featured on the YouTube channel "That Pedal Show" The tone is true on those. The pedal is great by itself of boosting another. Great communication throughout the order process. I was able to contact via phone and email without a hitch. If you are on the fence about this one, just buy it. You will not be sorry! Kevin on Jun 17th 2019
I feel like this pedal makes it easy to achieve a Gary Clark jr. Tone with the drive turned all the way up. I'm using humbuckers through a tone King and I find that there's not enough umph with the drive turns down. Don't get me wrong, I love this pedal. However, in my experience it's a fuzz not an Overdrive.
Gorgeous, super solid Construction. Ben Jahn on Jun 11th 2019
I've been searching for a long time for an overdrive / fuzz box as good as this one - you guys knocked it out of the park! Bill Rogers on Apr 25th 2019
Haven't experimented yet with my fender guitar n amp yet but sounds Awsome in my less Paul n marshall.
Loud colorful and orange. I love it. Great booster as well.
Getting close to the gilmour sound now. Thank you tru fi.
Awsome price also. Robert Horton on Apr 18th 2019
What a sound. A perfect clone of the original.
Clean boost to tremendous fuzz distortions. Put it after the Big Muff and reach to the sky. Amazing truly amazing pedal... Luke on Apr 12th 2019
As a cleanish boost, this thing is my favorite low-gain boost! As a fuzz, it's the most musical fuzz I've ever played! The high quality build and musicality is unparalleled. You've knocked it out of the park! Tim Wendland on Apr 2nd 2019
Right outta da box, this pedal IS dope! From a clean boost to RIP roaring rock n' roll!
Easy to dial in great tone. Plays well with others. Love it! Randy Howell on Mar 5th 2019
This pedal is my all-time go to! As soon as I found out about it I put in an order for one. Within a month I ordered a second one for my bass guitar. I cannot say enough good about the Colordriver! The aesthetic is amazing, the build is top notch, the sound is so versatile, cleans up beautifully, amazingly dynamic drive. If you’re a guitarist get it! If you’re a bassist get it! It’s the best. Amazing job at Tru-Fi! You guys really know how to make something truly inspiring! Unknown on Feb 27th 2019
