All-tube overdrive powered by selected 12AX7 vacuum tubes. Very natural sounding and highly sensitive. With the extreme settings, you can really get anything from a Big Muff to near-Octavia distortion.
i have owned this pedal for about a year and love it. i have a pro-co rat, a big muff and a tubescreamer. it took me a while to really like it, lots of tweeking... but now i never use any of the other distortions, or fuzzes. it's this, a guyatone mc-3 chorus in front and a crybaby used like a phaser on solos bringing up the rear through an old gibson tube amp.
This simple pedal has a perfect sound, with your two 12AX7 vacuum tubes, it makes the best overdrive quality Ive ever heard, easy to execute your hammers and pull offs quickly, has a very good sustain, harmonics and perfect bright sound.
im dave and im in a band touring schools around birmingham. im 13 i first heard about this when i was in the u.s i bought it about a week ago and i love the sound.. i use a gibson sg and a marshall mg100. i play alot of sabbath.. it rocks...
The best distortion pedal ever made!I am a die-hard tube tone lover and I love this pedal. It is quite clean for an overdrive pedal. It is very smooth with the drive cranked or not cranked. It sounds great with a Marshall or a Fender style tube amp...Especially with a Fender. Crank the amp, and the crunch of the amp with the drive of the pedal come together and mke the best sound ever.I really recommend this for a tube and tone freak.
Don't waste your money, the tone & sound is not very good. I use a hot plate with my fender deville and that sounds better cranked. I would not recommend the hot tubes...It muddys up the tone & sound. I'm gonna trade it in on something.
in playing this innovative pedal i realized one thing, hot tubes is too hot. the pedal has virtually 3 volume knobs: gain, overdrive and master(not to mention the other knobs). i played the pedal with the master totally off and once i barely tweaked it i unexpectedly received an instant earache. however, you can actually get this baby to sing anywhere from overdrive to the infamous big muff. it also has good stustain. obviously it does not run on 9v, but a 12v AC adapter. if you like ridiculously loud music and don't care if you melt your input jack, then get the pedal. if you're looking for great tone, sustain and versatility and don't mind tweaking for a long time to get it just right, then i suggest it also. for anyone else, don't bother.
