OVERVIEW

Lush analog distortion with 3 modes for finding the perfect sound.

Akai Professional's Analog Custom Shop Tri-Mode Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal is an excellent alternative to the more costly Deluxe Distortion. Tri-Mod Distortion combines Level, Tone and Distortion knobs with a Fat, Boost and Warm Tri-Mode switch in heavy-duty polished stainless-steel housing. True-bypass switching, three adjustable knobs and tone toggle switch provide precision tone control.

Tri-Mode Distortion's Tri-Mode toggle-switch gives guitarists detailed gain control ranging from a speck of dust to a thick, dirty tornado of sound. Select Fat, Boost or Warm to enable soaring leads, lush chords and satisfying rhythm tones. Tone may be further adjusted using the three precision Level, Tone and Distortion knobs.

Tri-Mode Distortion is powered by the included 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).

As with previous Akai Professional guitar pedals like the E2 Headrush and SB1 Deep Impact Bass Synth, the Analog Custom Shop line is a collection of pedal effects designed to exacting standards, using the highest quality components. Analog Custom Shop pedals provide rich tone, texture and character to immediately enhance and inspire players of any musical style.

FEATURES
  • Triple-throw switch for Fat, Boost and Warm
  • Pure analog with top quality components
  • Large vintage style knobs for easy setting and viewing
  • Level, Distortion and Tone controls.
  • True Bypass for retaining a pure signal when the effect is disengaged

Get vintage crunch, modern cut and everything in-between. Order today.

        I got this as a Stupid deal at a ridiculously low price. Very nice unit. This is my first distortion pedal and I am using it with a bass guitar. Sounds fabulous. Very happy with the purchase.

        Comments about Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Tri-Mode Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This Akai Distortion pedal works very well to ramp up gain and distortion. It sounds really good to me but of course that's just my opinion. I use humbucker guitars most often and the gain and tone controls on this unit allow a good variety of distortion from subtle to raging. Good tone and good sustain, useful for a variety of distorted guitar needs.

          I bought this as a stupid deal of the day, so I can't say I'm upset, But this distortion sound is terrible, I much prefer a DS-1, but I like to try different pedals in a lot of different instruments and applications, Hey, you never know, It might work out somewhere, But for now its sitting on a shelf until I need to experiment sometime.

            Comments about Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Tri-Mode Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This is a well made versatile pedal, and has quickly become a staple in my collection. The sound is very controllable and natural and the range of selection is well above average with the inclusion of the toggle. I LOVE THIS BOX !! It is a tick larger than your typical pedal so it may take a bit more space if you use a board, but that is inconsequential to me all things considered.

              Put this pedal between a tube screamer and a digitech delay and get all the distortion you could need. Then, toggle it down to get the perfect amount of distortion for classic rock. It works just fine and gives you many choices as to the amount and the depth of the distortion. "Responsive" is the appropriate description. And that is all through the clean channel.
