OVERVIEW

Dial in any level of overdrive you want while recalling the tonality of vintage AC series amps!

The AC-Tone pedal offers 2 channels of overdrive, voiced alike for preset usage, and also gives you a clean channel with a boost of up to 20dB. The overdrive is low to medium gain for a sweet and crisp tone with mellow midrange reminiscent of the old TopBoost amps from the late 60's. The 2 channels range from a mild breakup to a healthy overdriven sound. One channel can be used for slightly chimey breakup, and the other channel set for more overdrive, with saturated mids and drive. Lots of flexibility means you'll always have the sounds to meet your needs. The AC-Tone pedal has a built in regulated (+-12V) power supply, to secure the necessary headroom for great tone.

FEATURES
  • 2 channels of overdrive
  • Clean boost channel up to 20dB

    Comments about Carl Martin AC-Tone Dual Overdrive Pedal:

    I have owned countless gain type pedals. I own a recording studio and am a pro guitarist. I own Boogies, Bogners, Fenders, Dr. Z, Jim Kelly, Peavey, and Marshall amps and generally use the tube distortion because until now I have never found a gain type pedal that I liked. I have been using this with my Fender Deluxe and a Stratocaster these days. I have the Fenders master on 5 so its just starting to break up and then I use the pedals channel 1 gain to bring it to the breaking point for a great rythem or Mark Knopfler type lead. If I want to push it harder then I just press the button on the pedal for Chll2 which has the gain up all the way and the guitar sings. I can't say enough about this pedal. Its quite and very tube-like in a good way.

      disappointing pedal

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Carl Martin AC-Tone Dual Overdrive Pedal:

      do not buy this is ur expecting ur fender to sound like a vox ac30. it will sound as a cranked version of ur amp, which is not bad at all, except for that there is a million pedals out there that costs have of this and will do the same job. the boost is ok (is not transparent boost) and again there is cheaper boosters out there. im returning this asap

      A.C.Tone wins spot on pedal board!

      By 

      from Denver

      Comments about Carl Martin AC-Tone Dual Overdrive Pedal:

      This Carl Martin pedal has a internal power supply instead of a wall wart, doesn't take batterys and is like getting three pedals in one. Turns any vintage single chanel amp in to a 3 channel amp with it's 2 drive stages and seperate boost function. Any old Fender amp will benefit from this pedal. It has a crunchy bright sound but not brittle at all. It sounds nothing like a Tube Screamer clone. Set one drive for a little shimmering crunch, set the next for full on O.D. then kick in the 20 d.b.boost for even more fun. Built like the proverbial tank too. I'd buy another if this was stolen that's for sure.

      Carl Martin A-C tone quality sound and build

      By 

      from Denver

      Comments about Carl Martin AC-Tone Dual Overdrive Pedal:

      I've owned the C.M.AC-tone for a month now and it kicked another pedal off my pedal board. I have a early 70's Traynor Guitarmate and it sound incredible with this amp. Having 2 drives with the same sound is great if you want your sound consistant. I leave one set with a little crunch and one cranked. It also work great with other O.D pedals in front of it. The boost really drives your ampfor more headroom. Best O.D. pedal I've ever owned(and I've owned 100's in the 38 years I've played.

      ac tone

      Comments about Carl Martin AC-Tone Dual Overdrive Pedal:

      this pedal is awesome it really has a good harmonicly full tone. it sounds best with tube amps. solid state players beware it gets kinda piercing without a 412 cab. i use it at church for worship. i play it through a blond fender hotrod 410 and a 52 telecaster ri. the boost feature is awesome when you dont want to change or add a overdrive to boost your signal.
