Don’t take our word, take theirs…
The Precision Drive is the Overdrive pedal I always wanted and that I was kind of shocked no one had made. Given how many rock and metal musicians use ODs to boost and tighten their amps, I would have thought there might be a solution aimed at that crowd, but there just wasn't. So I figured I might as well bring that pedal to life, if anything, just so I could have it for myself!
The Precision Drive is an awesome addition to your rig if you want to breathe new life into your amplifier.
The Precision Drive gives me tone shaping options I always wish I had when it came to tightening up my gain tones. It has a distinct and unique character that compliments my sound in a way I never expected. In front of an amp or a modeler, and as a standalone distortion, the Precision Drive is everything I need in an OD pedal.
I can’t really fault it, to be honest. If you like progressive metal, you need one of these pedals.
This one is cool! Real stringy, defined overdrive/distortion. You can get a lot of clarity and snap out of say, a neck humbucker, with this pedal.
There are so many great overdrives available today. Some excel at pushing your amp into lead territory, while others work better at tightening and focusing your already driven amp. I have yet to find a single OD that is able to achieve both of these approaches as effortlessly as the Precision Drive. Between the Attack and Bright switch, you have enough control to shape the front end of anything you put it in front of. I use mine to tighten and focus my rhythm/riff sounds and it does exactly what I ask of it. I'm a big fan.

Horizon Devices knew exactly what they wanted and they executed it beautifully. I dig the Precision Drive, and you will be seeing it in future videos.
The Precision Drive is like a compressor, gate, drive, and boost pedal all rolled into one and kicks ass at all of these things!
The best thing to happen to my setup. It helps my mark v 25 get that extra punch and tightens up the flub on the low end. Super quiet and that noise gate works like a charm. Not only does it very much djent it does very well mid gain spanky overdriven tones. Oh and did I mention the sexy sleek very well put together probably can run it over with a tank build of a pedal! Definitely a great addition to any guitarists arsenal!
The Precision Drive has challenged me to think about guitar tone in a new way. I like being able to dial in punchy, yet clear modern rhythm tones without needing to slave over the minutiae. This pedal combines all the right building blocks and leaves out the unnecessary ones, making it incredibly easy for me to reproduce the tones I imagine in my head.
The Horizon Devices Precision Drive tightens up my low end and eliminates excess noise with its built-in noise gate. This pedal alone replaced my previous overdrive and noise gate for less than half the price of those other two pedals combined.
It fixed my sound in many different occasions...the noise gate is absolutely amazing!!!
I can't wait to add it to my rig!
The Horizon Devices Precision Drive has become a staple of my sound. It does everything I need and more, and I couldn't imagine my tone without it!
After only playing around with it for a bit I can easily say it's one of the best pedals I've ever used and I can't wait to mess around with it more!
Now, I can't cover up my mistakes with loose low end that gets buried in the mix. Also, this pedal turned all my crew necks into v-necks.
It's absolutely the best OD I've ever used. It makes my Rockerverb sound like an Orcish horde with comically large machine guns marching across a battlefield covered in kittens.

This is the best investment I have ever done when it comes to guitar equipment. When I first tried it I had no idea how much impact it would have on my guitar tone. It makes dialing in the perfect tone easy, and delivers exactly what the name implies: Precision. The attack knob is a godsend, and the drive is incredibly versatile. This is something every metal guitarist should own in my opinion. Can't wait to see what Horizon Devices goes from here!
I got mine in the mail about a week and a half ago and I can't stop using it. It's so fun to just play with it off, mess around with cleans then turn on my amps distortion and it's all crunchy and all, but once I step on the foot switch it's literally as if my amp morphed in my room and turned into a beast and I'm playing out of a baby sawtooth mini practice amp. Super glad I got it, highly recommend it, the settings are amazing. So crisp AND tight, no joke.
In my opinion, this pedal is just amazing. Being a fan of bands and music with great tones have got me to go in searching for something like this bad-ass pedal and I can say that I am truly happy with the Precision Drive.
