Effectrode Tube Drive Is Available Again

Effectrode have been in touch to tell us that the Tube Drive is available again. This overdrive pedal with an active tube tone control can be purchased direct from their web-site store.
  • All Tube gain circuitry: The Tube Drive is the only pedal you can buy that has a complete tube guitar preamp inside - 100% analog, class-A, all-tube means no silicon in the signal path. This topology gives the Tube Drive fine control over a wide range of gain characteristics from mild breakup to creamy saturation.
  • Tube swapping: The tone and gain characteristics of the Tube Drive can be drastically altered by interchanging tubes - in fact the pedal was designed for easy access to the tubes for this purpose. It can be quickly and easily transformed into a hi-gain distortion beast, mellow blues driver or boost pedal by simply removing a tube and replacing it with a different type.
  • Bax-Stack "active" tube tone control: The Tube Drive is the only overdrive with an active tube tone control. The Bax-Stack is a real treble boost (and cut) circuit with zero insertion loss, unlike passive tone stacks which can only remove frequency content ("tone-sucking"). The tone range is optimized to work over important frequencies essential for mellow jazz tones to some serious crunch.
  • Low-end coutour switch: Active low boost for a warmer, richer sound. Especially useful with single coil pickups to thicken the sound or when playing at low volumes to compensate for loudness.
  • Daylight visible orange L.E.D.: Indicates when pedal is engaged.
. And for those big Effectrode fans, you can now buy the Atomic Power Supply to power up to four of your Effectrode Pedals.

Easily the best OD/Distortion unit I've found in 30 years. I run two 5751's and it covers everything. You can easily hear the difference in any tubes you try out and your guitar's tone is always beautiful. Like I said, it's the best I've ever tried. This will be a collectors item in a few years. Plus, it's designed by Phil Taylor, David Gilmour's tech guy!
