Tonality Effects The Drive

The Tonality Effects The Drive is a real tube overdrive with adjustable voltage manufactured by an emerging Berlin-based pedal builder.

This stylish stompbox has an ECC83 / 12ZX7 tube embedded in the center-top of the case, protected by an elegant 3-ring metal element. Volume, Drive and Tone controls are joined by a Volt knob, which allows the player to change the internal voltage from 12 to 24 volts for more headroom and overall volume.

The circuit reacts dynamically in different ways depending on the voltage it’s fed.

Have a listen to it in the videos below.

Tonality Effects The Drive, Builder’s Notes

PURE CLASS A SOUND

Nothing else gives you this pure lively and dynamic sound of a soft clipping tube amplification. Your ears feel this natural response.

MORE GAIN…MORE SATURATION…MORE DYNAMIC

This special control gives you the advantage to chose your own characteristic tubesound. Stepless adjustable between a warm, lush and smooth overdrive to a fat dynamic distortion.

TRUE BYPASS AND NO SWITCHING NOISE

This high-end switch is controlling your signal path without any noise. A special circuit is switching between the true-bypass signal and the effect.
