As seen on "That Pedal Show" from the UK TWICE !!!! - THANK YOU !
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 !

ReviewsPhilip CraigLike many, I am a fan of gain stacking, but have always been looking for the pedal to stick at the end of my chain that can capture the tone/feeling of an old “nasty” sounding amp just into breakup. Well, my search is over after getting my Colordriver 9V. Yes, not the “normal” place for a pedal like this, but it does exactly what I need it to, where I need it to. And just for those wondering, it sounds great at ALL gain levels!!Wolfgang Terne
ColordriverThis pedal is way beyond my expectations. It can be a booster, an overdrive, a fuzz pedal and everything in between. It will gild every sound perfectly. ...I can't remember life before owning a colordriver. Thanx!!!!!David Clark
Tru-Fi ColordriverAbsolutely love this pedal. The sensitivity and dynamics are incredible. Even with the gain up and guitar on 10 I can get cleans with super light picking. From clean, to OD, to a gated fuzz territory, this has quickly become my favorite dirt pedal.Sean Watkins
ColordriverThe Colordriver sounds incredible and is super versatile. Big clean boost all the way up to fuzzed out goodness. It came in a nice wooden box with sticker and instructions. The pedal just looks cool too. I love it!Eric Raphael
Outstanding PedalGreat pedal full a variety of great tones. From subtle overdrive to fuzz and everything in between. Really glad I bought this pedalLucas
9v Colordriver Gold HammertoneCompared to 2 Overdrivers, sounds great, very versatile. Will be buying more TruFi pedalsStephen
ColordriverFabulous pedal. There are so many sweet spots: Glassy clean boost, verge of breakup clean, thick overdrive, overdrive on the verge of fuzz and of course, fuzz. This pedal makes my Strat and Mesa amp sound huge. Thank you Tru-Fi!Jeff
So much fun!I'm the proud owner of 4 of the Tru-Fi pedals and can't say enough good things about them. They check all of the boxes for me.Daniel Krier
Tru Fi ColordriverGreat build/pedal to add to the collection.Nimrod
Colordriver - reviewThis thing is tone machine! If you’re searching for the one box that does it all fuZZ, Od, and boost this thing is it! best dynamics from the volume pot I ever heard. it works with whatever you throw at it (my strat tele and es 330 just loves it), it does need an amp that’s “in the zone” to sound its best like most fuzz boxes but it sounds good through a clean amp as well. All in all one of the best dirt boxes I’ve ever had the pleasure to try + Teddy is an absolute king!
