OVERVIEW

Real tube, real tone.

This overdrive overflows with the wide dynamic range of VOX's signature British-flavored distortion. Turning the bright switch on will give you a sparkling British sound with defined highs, even from a guitar equipped with humbucking pickups. This is an all-around overdrive that's a great choice for a wide range of styles.

Newly-developed Hi-Volt technology that overturns expectations for compact effect units
Hi-Volt technology enables the vacuum tube to operate at 200V while still running on a battery. This enables a true tube-driven sound that overturns your expectations for a compact effect unit.

What is Hi-Volt?
VOX has revealed a new vacuum tube circuit technology called Hi-Volt. It delivers high voltage (200V) to a 12AX7 vacuum tube by using 6x AA batteries or the DC9V power supply.

The discrete circuit works at 20V, which is still considered high voltage operation compared to other general effects products. The result is a natural and dynamic tone which is similar to that of a vacuum tube amplifier. Even though vacuum tubes are considered big by modern component size standards, our engineers were able to keep these pedals small, so you don't have to worry about them taking up too much space on your pedal board.

Gain control that lets you vary the character of your sound
The transistor amplification circuit has also received a good deal of consideration. We've designed the gain control so that adjusting its position does not simply change the amplitude, but will also change the tonal character in a subtle way. From zero to max, it yields an array of highly usable and natural overdrive tones.

Carefully designed power supply circuit that extends vacuum tube lifespan
Since high current flows through a vacuum tube when the power is turned on, we have provided a heater current slow start circuit that extends the lifespan of the vacuum tube and also avoids malfunctions for the AC adapter.

    Tube was not lit internally. Looks like backlight. Not a tube driver if you are expecting anything special.

        Comments about Vox Tone Garage Straight 6 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This might be my first review but I felt I had to for this great pedal. I feel that the demos on the web for this pedal do not do it justice. This pedal works great for giving an American style amp some cool British distortion. However, I have also used is with my JCM800 to give it some extra drive and it worked great for that too. The Made in Japan (nice surprise) construction is fantastic and the feel of the very cool mini chicken head knobs is top notch.

        It has a nice range of useful tones and really sounded great at pretty much all settings but maybe the most extreme settings and even then still pretty good. I was able to get a Vox Type Brian May sound and other straight up rock sounds from low to high gain. It also cleans up with the volume knob better and more naturally than any other distortion pedal I have ever used. Even at the lowest gain setting it still has a good amount of grit so if you just want boost Vox has the Flat Four Boost.

        I'm not sure why there isn't more buzz on this pedal. Maybe the bright green color scares people? There are plenty of other green pedals out there. Maybe its the more than reasonable price makes it seem to good to be true? I will tell you it looks very cool on my pedalboard with the tube lit up from behind by a green LED. The tube itself is run at 200v which allows it to act like an additional gain stage in front of your amp. The tube is not just a prop. I have heard of others changing out the 12AX7 for a different brand or NOS tube or even a 12AT7 which I plan to try all of the above in the future. Not many pedals give you that kind of personal customization options.

        Some people online have complained about the standby switch. If you want a tube to run at the proper voltage and preserve battery life and lessen the strain on the components you can live with the standby switch. It is not a big deal. Plus it makes it feel like a mini amp which it kind of is.

        One thing to note is that if you are using a Voodoo Pedal Power 2 like I am you will need to use either jack 5 or 6 which provide the higher voltage required by this pedal. It also worked fine on my One Spot in a standalone situation. It also comes with batteries which is a nice touch but I haven't run it on them yet.

        I feel that with the very reasonable price, great sound, Hi-Volt Technology, cool looks (IMHO), nice packaging, and quality construction Vox has a real winner. Great job Vox!
