VOX TONE GARAGE V8 HIGH GAIN DISTORTION PEDAL
This VOX Tone Garage series stomp box effects pedal captures the pure essence of analogue in by the pairing of carefully selected components combined with a brand new design topology. Taking advantage of VOX’s newly developed Hi-Volt technology, the TONE GARAGE V8 DISTORTION pedal delivers the warmth expected from a tube as well as the all important feel and dynamics.
• V8 DISTORTION features controllable high-gain distortion that retains that retain the natural essence of your guitar
• All-discrete circuitry – the result of the relentless pursuit of tone
• True bypass design provides tonal confidence even when the effect is off
• Tough die-cast body that stands up to the rigors of the road
• Newly developed Hi-Volt technology allows the tube to operate at 200V, even on battery power
• Gain control lets you adjust the tonal character
• Highly usable “Mid Shift” switch adds extra presences tonal definition
• Heater current’s slow start circuit ensures vacuum tube longevity
VOX TONE GARAGE V8 HIGH GAIN DISTORTION PEDAL WITH AWE-INSPIRING TONE
As befits the name “V-type 8-cylinder,” this is a “balls to the wall” high-gain distortion pedal that delivers awe-inspiring tone. As well as modern high gain distortion sounds ideal for seriously heavy riffage, the VOX V8 puts cutting-edge high-gain lead sounds at your fingertips.
VOX engineers working with leading guitarists came up with a mid-shift switch that lets you change the EQ-band where the mid-range peaks. Turning this off gives you a broad dynamic range with an emphasised attack. Turning it on shifts the EQ-band and the result is instant tone that will inspire you to solo!
VOX TONE GARAGE V8 DISTORTION PEDAL NEWLY DEVELOPED HI-VOLT TECHNOLOGY
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 unit.
VOX TONE GARAGE V8 DISTORTION PEDAL WHAT IS HI-VOLT TECHNOLOGY?
VOX has developed a new vacuum tube circuit technology called Hi-Volt. It delivers high voltage (200V) to a 12AX7 vacuum tube by using 6 x AA batteries or an (optional) 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, VOX’s 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.
VOX TONE GARAGE V8 DISTORTION PEDAL GAIN CONTROL LETS YOU VARY THE CHARACTER OF YOUR SOUND
The solid-state amplification circuit has been designed so that when adjusting the gain control, its position does not simply change the amplitude, it also changes the tonal character of the signal. From zero to max, it yields an array of highly usable and natural overdrive tones.
VOX TONE GARAGE V8 DISTORTION PEDAL PATENTED POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT THAT EXTENDS TUBE LIFESPAN
High current flows through a vacuum tube when the power is turned on so VOX Engineers incorporated a heater current slow start circuit that extends the lifespan of the vacuum tube and also avoids malfunctions if an (optional) AC adapter is used.
