TC Electronic Introduces Analog Vintage Pre Drive PedalCapable of producing vintage tube style guitar tones (April 06, 2005)
TC Electronic debuts VPD1, an all-analog Vintage Pre Drive pedal capable of producing vintage tube style guitar tones. Based on TCs 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 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. VPD1 is expected to ship in June 2005 at EUR 275 retail ex. VAT.
Simplicity, great sound, and timeless design make up the holy trinity of the VPD1 Vintage Pre Drive Pedal from TC Electronic. This 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. VPD1 would therefore serve as an excellent companion for the new G-System from TC Electronic. The basic drive section delivers a distinguished vintage overdrive allowing 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 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.
