One of the best ways to make a distortion pedal stand out in a crowded market is to give the player more tone-shaping control than your average 3-knob stompbox. The trick is to enable more tweaking without sacrificing what’s good about the pedal in the first place. The VHT V-Drive is a stompbox crammed with goodies, including a fundamentally unique method of tweaking the V-Drive’s distortion character. And in doing so, the V-Drive almost turns the player into a pedal designer by enabling on-the- fly selection of clipping diode configurations— one of the fundamental aspects of a distortion pedal’s voice.
From clean boost to creamy-smooth sustain to raging harmonic complexity, the new VHT V-Drive overdrive pedal's unique controls offer an amazingly wide range of tones and textures at an awesome value. In addition to standard Drive and Volume controls, the VHT V-Drive offers four more unique controls.select
The V-Drive's 11-position Select switch provides ten different clipping diode configurations plus a clean-boost diode-bypass mode. (Clipping diodes are the heart and soul of nearly every classic overdrive pedal design, and the type and configuration of these diodes defines the overdrive texture and dynamic response character.) The V-Drive's Select switch replicates the diode type and configuration of the most popular overdrive pedals of the '80s and '90s as well as some of today's most sought-after boutique designs. The V-Drive also offers several new diode types and configurations for some fresh tones for the future, enabling players to make their own unique contributions to the advancement of the art of overdrive.texture
The V-Drive's Texture control adjusts the overdrive texture and harmonic content. Working in conjunction with the Select switch, these two controls provide an unprecedented range of fine-tunable overdrive choices. Warm and smooth or bristling with harmonic activity, the choice-and voice-is yours.
