This may be a dumb question, but what does a “second stage drive” mean ?
As an example, if you're using a bluesbreaker pedal and have a tubescreamer after (or before) and use them at the same time. Second stage drive.

It’s fancy-speak for turning on another overdrive pedal.

In the last several years, the pedal-fetish world has incorporated a lot of official sounding pedal-related terminology.
  • Pairing
  • Complementary(usually spelled “complimentary”) pedals
  • Stacking
  • Foundation overdrive
  • Pedal platform amp

It means you play in a praise and worship band and read that term somewhere on a gear forum and now insist on referring to medium gain drives as '2nd stage'
