This overdrive overflows with the wide dynamic
range of VOX's signature British-flavored
distortion. Turning the bright switch on will give
you a sparkling British sound with defined highs,
even from a guitar equipped with humbucking
pickups. This is an all-around overdrive that's a
great choice for a wide range of styles.
Newly-developed Hi-Volt technology that overturns
expectations for compact effect units:
Hi-Volt technology enables the vacuum tube to
operate at 200V while still running on a battery.
This enables a true tube-driven sound that
overturns your expectations for a compact effect
What is Hi-Volt?
VOX has revealed a new vacuum tube circuit
technology called Hi-Volt. It delivers high
voltage (200V) to a 12AX7 vacuum tube by using 6x
AA batteries or the DC9V power supply.
The discrete circuit works at 20V, which is still
considered high voltage operation compared to
other general effects products. The result is a
natural and dynamic tone which is similar to that
of a vacuum tube amplifier. Even though vacuum
tubes are considered big by modern component size
standards, our engineers were able to keep these
pedals small, so you don't have to worry about
them taking up too much space on your pedal board.
Gain control that lets you vary the character of
The transistor amplification circuit has also
received a good deal of consideration. We've
designed the gain control so that adjusting its
position does not simply change the amplitude, but
will also change the tonal character in a subtle
way. From zero to max, it yields an array of
highly usable and natural distortion tones.
Carefully designed power supply circuit that
extends vacuum tube lifespan:
Since high current flows through a vacuum tube
when the power is turned on, we have provided a
heater current slow start circuit that extends the
lifespan of the vacuum tube and also avoids
malfunctions for the AC adapter.
