Sahana Drive


The Port City Sahana Drive is adapted from an ever-popular overdrive circuit and tailored to our standards. It has a smoother drive section with a great low-mid presence, the tone control has a larger sweep, and it is noticeably more sensitive than other mid-gain overdrive pedals. This pedal works as well in front of a clean amp as it does pushing a mid to high gain amp. The distortion that the Sahana Drive delivers blooms and will add a new dimension to your current tone. It is a great mid-gain overdrive to add harmonic complexity to any setup.

The Sahana Drive is the new version of our previously released Sahana Boost.

Slide "Thanks so very much for responding. I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. I thought I had some great cleans on some other amps... which can now not ever be considered as great cleans to me anymore! Good work!"

Slide "Hey Daniel, just thought I might let you know that I've been loving the amp so far. Your workmanship is truly incredible and you make spectacular equipment. Your amps look as beautiful they sound. Cheers."

Slide "I'm sure you hear this all the time but I can hardly believe how absolutely incredible this thing sounds!!! It is so articulate and responsive. This is what I have always wanted an amp to sound like. Takes all my dirt and fuzz and weird lo-fi effects so well and never loses focus or becomes muddy. I don't know how you did it, but this amp is damn near perfection and worth every penny. I love the gold light to match the gold on the amp by the way. Thanks again for all the conversations and for making such a great product."

Slide "I spent some time with the amp… beautiful …beautiful sounding amp. Great tone in a super clean, straight forward package. Picked up my first 2x12 Wave cab in early 2015. The WGS Vet 30’s sounds great covering everything from jazz to contemporary Christian to hard rock, blues and my usual genre, jazz fusion. My second cab, a baffled Wave 2x12/10housing one Vet 30 and one 10” Jensen Jet Tornado is crystal clear on clean tones and heavy gain alike. Very happy with all of my Port City products, thanks for making great tone so easy."

Slide "I have owned my Pearl and OS Wave cabinet for 6 months now. It is like playing in hi-fidelity. It lets you hear how your guitars and pedals actually sound!"
