VOX Tone Garage Tube/Analog Pedals

hoff • Accessories • August 8, 2013

The Tone Garage Series is comprised of five effects units that feature all-analog circuitry. The Flat 4 Boost, the V8 Distortion, and the Straight 6 Drive all feature a carefully-matched, high voltage VOX 12AX7 tube. The Flat 4 Boost also incorporates a passive Baxandall EQ circuit. The Double Deca Analog Delay features three V3205 Bucket Brigade chips, and the Trike Fuzz octave/fuzz pedal features specially-selected, high-quality diodes. The pedals' all-discrete circuits use no op-amps or ICs (Integrated Circuits), instead using individual transistors, resistors, capacitors, and coils.

Specially-created for three of the pedals in this series is a new VOX vacuum tube circuit technology called "Hi-Volt," which delivers high voltage (200V) to a 12AX7 vacuum tube using the included 6x AA batteries or an optional DC9V adaptor.

Street price: $139 (Trike Fuzz), $159 (V8, Straight 6, Double Deca Delay, Flat 4).
