    All in as new/mint condition. Recently acquired after pre-orders came due. Was curious about each and, as it turns out, I don't have a strong need for so many drive pedals. Prices include shipping within the lower US 48.

    Sunnday Drive X (Raw, Black Knobs, Red/Blue LED) - $190 [SOLD]
    Dr. Wattson X (Raw, Black Knobs, Purple LED, Bass Voiced) - $190 [SOLD]
    London Underground X (Raw, Black Knobs, Red LED, PA Tonestack) - $180 [SOLD]

    Pics & Descrips

    Sushi Box SDX.jpg
    The Sunnday Drive is based on the preamp of the legendary Sunn Model T. Sunnday Drive X is unique as it is designed to be an "always-on" preamp, with the footswitch activating a tube boost to the front end for more gain. The boost can also be used independently of the preamp, as there is a toggle to bypass the preamp.

    Controls: Gain, Volume, Boost, Bass, Mids, Treble, Bright (toggle), Bypass (toggle), Boost (footswitch)

    Sunnday Drive X uses a pair of 12AX7 tubes, which can be swapped for anything in the 12A*7 family for a different sound. It comes in a Hammond 1590BB Enclosure.

    CURRENT DRAW NOTE: Like many Sushi Box pedals, this one uses tubes, which means current draw is a bit higher than a standard pedal. During warm up it will try to pull around 900mA on a 12V input, and when it has finished warming up it will pull about 560mA on a 12V input. I recommend a 1000mA (or more) supply.


    Sushi Box DWX.jpg
    The Dr. Wattson is based on the preamp of the legendary early 70s version Hiwatt Dr103. It has been modified to make it more suitable for pedal/preamp use while staying true to the original Dr103 design. The most recent version of this pedal includes a modification to drop the output level, but it is still LOUD and fully capable of driving any power amp.

    Controls: Gain, Master, Bass, Mids, Treble

    The X Series Dr. Wattson uses a pair of 12AX7, keeping the killer tone you would expect from anything associated with Hiwatt.

    It takes a 9-12V input, and can accept center negative or center positive inputs. It uses internal regulators to supply 200V to the plates, giving it the richness you expect from a full high-voltage preamp. It comes in a Hammond 1590BB Enclosure.

    CURRENT DRAW NOTE: Like many Sushi Box pedals, this one uses a tube, which means current draw is a bit higher than a standard pedal. During warm up it will try to pull around 900mA on a 12V input, and when it has finished warming up it will pull about 560mA on a 12V input. I recommend a 1000mA (or more) supply.

    The London Underground is based on the preamp of the legendary Orange AD200B. It has some similarities to Particle Accelerator, but aside from a different voicing London Underground also gets more drive when the gain is turned up.

    A popular request has been a London Underground with a Particle Accelerator tone stack, which gives the bite of London Underground with the richer low end of the Particle Accelerator. This is available at no additional cost, just make a note of "PA tone stack" or something similar in the notes section when ordering.

    

Controls: Gain, Master, Bass, Mids, Treble


    The X Series London Underground uses a 12AX7 tube, just like the original Orange AD200B preamp. It comes in a 125B enclosure.

    It takes a 9-12V input, and can accept center negative or center positive inputs. It uses internal regulators to supply 200V to the plates, giving it the richness you expect from a full high-voltage preamp.

    CURRENT DRAW NOTE: Like many Sushi Box pedals, this one uses a tube, which means current draw is a bit higher than a standard pedal. While we haven't profiled X Series yet, you can expect current draw requirements to be ~350mA @ 12v.

    Is there a demo of the Sunday Drive online anywhere? Anyone have any info on it for warming up your tone. I'm not looking for overdrive, just a little warmth and hair when digging in.
