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 !

ReviewsBrian UrsoBeen looking for an original Macaris Colorsound pedal for years. But they dont make them often enough and when they do they are INSANE price wise. Well i bought a Colorfinder and it sounds JUST like a colorsound! My buddy has an original colorsound and the colorfinder sounds just like it even BETTER! Classic Floyd sound espically when paired with a phaser or a flange!Bart Brunner
Absolutley incredibleI couldn’t be happier with the Colordriver. It does everything from warm amp breakup to some of the gnarliest fuzz. There’s a ton of power under the hood. I tried to dime the pedal just see what it could do and I couldn’t take the master volume past half way. It’s a solid design and so versatile. I’ve got it on a stomp box setting on my G2 so I can bring it in and out of my presets. I can’t believe the tone it brings. Highly recommended!!Seth Miller
just buy it!Bought one. Jaw dropped. Couldn’t believe that these got by me got so long. Pure overdrive. Awesome clean eq. Killer ‘No Fun ‘fuzz. Turned right around and ordered a second with the purple sparkle for my other board within a week! Sounds just as incredible as the first! Looks even better! Thanks!!
Best overdrive pedal I've ever boughtCan't believe this has stayed under my radar for so long. The colordriver is an incredible tone machine, from boost to fuzz and everything in between. Very low noise even at high gain settings, very solidly built and just a blast to play with. Came in a beautiful wooden case too, couldn't recommend enough!Jim
Love My Colordriver!Got this for Gilmour tones and it nails it! Great for boost, light OD all the way up to kickass fuzz!! Sounds awesome! Solid as a rock and very little noise. Running mine through a Hi-Tone DG50 and it sounds divine.
buy this now - you won’t regret itAs soon as I saw Tyler Bryant bust out this bad boy, i knew i had to get it. Built like a tank, absolutely noiseless and just super cool in general. My go to gain pedal 100% now and it plays so well with the rest of my board. Just ordered a second as a gift for a friend.Søren
Spot on vintage tones!My new favorite overdrive/fuzz pedal. This thing goes from a wall of articulate fuzz to cruchy overdriven tones with the turn of your guitar’s volume knob. Now I know how David Gilmour and Jeff Beck felt back in ‘73! Simply incredible.Alexander F
Absolutely AmazingIf you are looking for something different from your typical TS and K style pedals, this is it. I find it has worked best at the front of the chain for me!Joey Cote
Classic vibesFantastic pedal! Really captures those clean David Gilmour tones when used as a boostMikko Horttana
AwesomeAwesome pedal. Powerful and yet it cleans up really nice. It actually provides you fuzz, overdrive and treble boost all 8n one pedal. Built like a tank. Yay
