TC VPD1 Vintage Drive Pedal Now ShippingFeatures top and mid boost, remote control, and integrated vintage-type speaker filter (June 27, 2005)
TC Electronic is happy to announce that the new VPD1 Vintage Pre Drive pedal is now shipping. Featuring an additional boost section, top and mid boost, remote control, and an integrated vintage-type speaker filter, VPD1 has a lot more to it than just overdrive. The pedal was designed to reproduce the warm driven vintage tones that result from a tube amp with the master volume turned all the way up. VPD1 is shipping now at EUR 275 retail ex. VAT.
VPD1 features a unique circuit, which accurately replicates every group of components in an original vintage tube amp combo, including the dynamic interaction that occurs between the components. In the VPD1 signal path, the boost section is placed before the drive, which means that the boosted guitar signal not only sounds louder but also more overdriven. This makes it ideal for switching from rhythm to lead guitar. The remote function allows you to switch the VPD1 boost on and off with the new G-System from TC Electronic or any other external relay switching. Also included are top and mid boost switches for a more flexible sonic exploitation of the VPD1.
TC Electronic equipped the VPD1 with an integrated speaker filter, making it very useful for studio sessions and home practice. The speaker filter, which can be bypassed, is based on the same research as the VPD1 Drive, and underlines the vintage qualities of the new TC pedal. Vintage overdrive functionality aside, VPD1 is loaded with features, including the speaker filter, which turns it into a compact quality preamp capable of delivering everything from warm tones to snarling leads.
