12AX7 tube-powered overdrive
Tube Pilot gives you the sound and feel of an old school tube preamp being pushed into natural distortion. Inside the pedal lives a 12AX7 vacuum tube like that used in preamp stages on many, many classic guitar amps, producing the rich, harmonically saturated overdrive that only tubes can produce. Using the Tube Drive knob on the pedal, you control how hard the tube is working. From barely breaking a sweat to switching on the afterburners and blasting into the stratosphere.
The tone and feel you get from Tube Pilot is like what you'd get from an old school tube amplifier. It's extremely touch sensitive and reacts to how you attack the strings. Just like on a vintage tube amp turned up, you can use picking dynamics to seamlessly go from warm, clean chimes to fat blues tones or rich, grinding rock sounds with plenty of sustain. Housed in a high quality metal exterior, Tube Pilot Overdrive is sturdy and rugged and will serve you reliably out on the road with its tough metal enclosure and high quality materials. The all-analog circuitry operates quietly and true bypass technology maintains the integrity of your tone when the pedal is off.
