MESSE05: TC Electronic Stompbox


TC Electronic have launched the VPD1, an all-analog Vintage Pre Drive pedal capable of producing vintage tube style guitar tones. Based on TC's characteristic guitar pedal design, VPD1 features a drive section and an additional boost section with a resonance filter that allows for emphasizing treble or mid frequencies when the boost is activated. VPD1 differs from a traditional drive pedal by covering the full range guitar signal, and according to TC, it is perfect for reproducing those warm driven vintage tones that you can only get from a tube amp with the master volume turned all the way up. TC claim that the pedal is all about bringing out the best in your favourite guitar/amp setup without any unwanted colouring of tone or quality-compromising add-ons and are recommending it as an excellent companion for their new G-System. The VPD1 features 'Drive', 'Level', 'Tone' and 'Boost' knobs as well as individual 'On' and 'Boost' footswitches. Also included are the Top and Mid boost emphasis filters. The basic drive section delivers a vintage overdrive designed to allow every characteristic of your instrument to shine through. When you kick in the boost section, you get a saturated lead sound with plenty of gain and sustain. VPD1 is expected to ship in June 2005 at EUR 275 retail ex. VAT. More info:
