Like getting two overdrive pedals in one!

The Jacques Overtube Vintage Pro Overdrive Pedal is a perfect re-creation of the classic "TS" overdrive effect with the addition of the Jacques Cascade circuit. The Overtube gives you the same tone with exactly the same controls and control action on a original vintage TS. This sought-after tone has a nice, vocal midrange character that will make your solos sing.

In the past, famous pro guitarists have had to use two TS overdrive effect pedals to get that compressed high-gain overdrive sound needed for searing, over-the-top solos. The Cascade is a clever circuit that is completely equivalent to two Overtube pedals linked in serial. This increases the high-gain saturation and gives you the bite and sustain you've always wanted. Just turn the Cascade switch on and transform your guitar solos into melting iron magic.

Features

  • Classic "TS" Overdrive Tone
  • Level, Low, High, and Drive Knobs
  • Cascade Mode On/Off Toggle Switch
  • Master Pedal On/Off Switch
  • Made in France.

Turn your solos into magic today!

Comments about Jacques Overtube Vintage Pro Overdrive Effects Pedal:

This is one excellent pedal. I tested it through a very clean solid state amp against a TS-808. The sound is dead on, I switched the cascade feature on and tried it against two consecutive TS-808s. Dead on again. This very sturdy pedal is also very elegant. It's just the right size for you to work with and takes less space on your pedalboard. The battery compartment eschews that annoying flimsy little 9 volt battery hook hanging on 2 wires. You just drop your battery into the fitted compartment and that's it! I push the the footswitch expecting to hear the familiar click and . . . ? Nothing! Absolutely silent. Love it! I'm getting rid of my 808s.

Comments about Jacques Overtube Vintage Pro Overdrive Effects Pedal:

This is a GREAT pedal. Does everything you'd expect out of it's description. My complete chain is: a Les Paul Studio into the Overtube, into a Crybaby Classic, amped by a Vox Lil' Night Train into a Marshall Valvestate vs100, and a JCM900 Lead 1960a cab. The sound is very smooth and rich, but still gives you those brilliant highs that really make it scream.

My only complaint is that the model they shipped me is the "classic" push-button model, instead of the more modern picture that they show. I described it in the cons section as clunky, which it is, but it in no way effects the sound.

Other than that, awesome pedal. Well worth the money.

Great Little Known Pedal

Comments about Jacques Overtube Vintage Pro Overdrive Effects Pedal:

I picked one of these up a about two years ago after reading about it on G.P mag.I've been using and enjoying it ever since.Works great in front of a clean tube amp.I do use the cascade feature and it works as advertised. Slathers on a tasty dollop of sweet, bluesy OD using single coils, or buckers. The only guitar I don't like usung it w/ is a P-90 equipped Les Paul. Produces way too much buzz. You can faithfully reproduce the much sought afer "Texas Boogie" tone w/ a decent Strat style guitar.I'd put it on par w/ the OCD. Buy one before they raise the $$$$ again!

A major improvement...

Comments about Jacques Overtube Vintage Pro Overdrive Effects Pedal:

I always liked Tubescreamers for cutting through the mix. I always disliked them for loss of bass. The Overtube takes care of that to some extent. The bass is diminished when you switch this pedal on also but to a lesser degree, at least to my ears. The cascade switch kicks in another gain stage and really increases the highs to really help you cut through. I have only had the need to use the first setting so far because I am primarily a humbucker user. This combination provides a sweet, singing overdrive that is great for rhythm and lead. The only reason I didn't give it an overall 5 star rating is that unlike some germanium or silicon based pedals, it doesn't clean up as nicely when your volume is turned down. The construction is top notch- it really feels well built and executed. I'm a big fan of this pedal.
