TC Electronic TUBE PILOT OVERDRIVE Guitar Pedal

Firstly, nothing beats the classic 12AX7 vacuum tube when it comes to delivering soul-searching guitar tone. That’s why it’s a mainstay in musical instrument amplifier design. TC Electronic TUBE PILOT OVERDRIVE is highly maneuverable and powerful enough to satisfy any guitar ace.

In fact, TUBE PILOT comes with a genuine, handpicked 12AX7. Additionally, TUBE PILOT injects your sound with the organic, touch-sensitive saturation of a vintage tube amp. It dares you to push it over the edge.

Real Tube Overdrive

Unlike those pretend “tube” overdrive pedals, TUBE PILOT OVERDRIVE isn’t just a facsimile of a tube preamp being pushed into distortion. It’s an old-school tube preamp being pushed into true natural distortion. Inside the pedal, you’ll find the very same 12AX7 tube from a host of iconic amps.

By adjusting the Gain knob on the pedal, you control how hard the tube is working. Go from barely breaking a sweat – to kicking in the afterburners!

Unparalleled Dynamics

The tone and feel you get from TUBE PILOT OVERDRIVE is exactly the same as what you’d get from a tube amp. It’s extremely-touch sensitive, and reacts to how you attack the strings, allowing you to use picking dynamics to seamlessly go between fat blues tones to rich, grinding rock sounds.

Lastly, pick the strings softly for a warm and clean tone. Otherwise, hit ‘em hard for an organic bite with incredible warmth and sustain.
