Chandler Tube DriverPublished on 06/29/11 at 12:00
This is a classic overdrive pedal used by professionals such as by Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, David Gilmour and many others. This is a unique and classic tube driven style overdrive stomp box. The tone feels very natural and cascading like a normal gain stage of a tube amp would do. The connection is easy but be prepared to use it in an outlet because it doesn't have a Boss style plug in, so the pedal power is out unless you don't have anything else with a three pronged cord.

It is a standard analog pedal with no midi function or digital adjusting controls. The lay out is as follows...

Level, Hi and Lo EQing, and Tube Drive.

This is a classic overdrive pedal used by professionals such as by Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, David Gilmour and many others. This is a unique and classic tube driven style overdrive stomp box. The tone feels very natural and cascading like a normal gain stage of a tube amp would do. The connection is easy but be prepared to use it in an outlet because it doesn't have a Boss style plug in, so the pedal power is out unless you don't have anything else with a three pronged cord.

It is a standard analog pedal with no midi function or digital adjusting controls. The lay out is as follows...

Level, Hi and Lo EQing, and Tube Drive.

The controls allow you to get some interesting overdrive settings. You can do quite a bit of variation with this pedal if you have enough space on your pedal board for it. It is rather large so keep that in mind.

UTILIZATION

There are so many tones available in the pedal that a slight adjustment will change the dynamic of the gain and EQ. This peal is a good pedal with trying to get a tube screamer tone as well as getting a little clean boost as well. Great for classic rock and pop music.

Easy as pie to set up. You have 4 controls and that's it. You have to let your ears be the judge on this pedal because the range or tone is so vast that you really have to be gentile when dialing it in.

SOUND QUALITY

Since this pedal is so synonymous with Pink Floyd and David Gilmore, I would test it out on a Hiwatt Dr103 and a Strat. Better yet use it with a Reeves custom 100 , keep the Hi Eq lower and the Drive bout noonish, and there you have that vintage Gilmorish tone. Couple that with an analog delay such as a Wampler analog echo or a MXR Carbon Copy and you are done.

It works as a good clean boost with the Tube Drive lower and as you move it clock wise you will quickly get good overdrive. If you turn it all the up it starts to break up like a fuzz pedal or Big Muff. Not nearly as gainy as a BM but has similar characteristics as one though.

My beef with it though is that it is pretty big. So you'll need some room on your pedal board to house this beast. Also, you'll need a separate outlet to power it since it does not have a normal Boss style 9v or 18v plug. I think it will sound better without it and the reissues keep to that original vintage style which I appreciate too.

OVERALL OPINION

I would recommend any Gilmore fan or any one who enjoys a vintage type overdrive pedal for classic rock. It sits around $300 a piece so be sure you are committed to it since it is sort of expensive. But it sure is a keeper!.

This is a fantastic OD pedal with many options to boot. I think it sounds best with a Strat and a Hiwatt or a Reeves amp. For me it is hard to break away from this setup since I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan, but really this pedal with sound great with just about any decent tube amp.

The Chandler Tube Driver is a real tube based overdrive guitar pedal. It is made in the USA has a 1/4 inch input and output and I believe is has a 12Ax7 type tube. It is not a rackable unit, as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration of the Tube Driver is really easy to follow, and it is easy to get a good sound from this. It has four knobs - one for output level, two for EQ - one controls the hi end, one control the low end, and another knob for the level of the tube drive. The parameters are straightforward and getting a good sound is a breeze. I don't have a manual for this so I can't speak to how helpful it is or not.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the Chandler Tube Driver is outstanding. The overdrive is really fat and full in tone. It has a good amount of parameters that makes it have the ability to get a few different overdrive sounds. I use this with guitar - a Gibson SG and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, and I get some awesome results. The end product is a thick overdrive sound that is great for rock and indie, and especially great for playing thick rhythm guitar tones. Being that this has a real tube, it has an authentic tone that is hard to match unless there is a real tube involved.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Chandler Tube Driver overdrive pedal for about three years. It is dependable and has a great tone quality to it. It is built like a brick and is really easy to use. I would compare this to the Nady TD-1 tube overdrive, since they are both tube based, but the Tube Driver takes the cake as I think it is fuller in tone. Getting a great tone is easy and the price is reasonable for a great sounding pedal like this. Definitely recommended for anyone interested in tube based overdrive for guitar.

I do not speak of "armada" revolving around the hardware and even less of rgy with all that it entails sound treatments. Rgy held strictly forbidden even to reporters specializes in press, and can be happily otherwise it would still heavily loaded with meaning that speculators THE SAME device was in a rack! And as we say so often even if it has the same guitar BRASSENS, or even if we take the BRASSENS guitar ever we play like BRASSENS and GILMOUR it's worse because it YYA the electronics and more, and rather than the singer rather we spend our instruments .........

Except that the Chandler tube driver is rare is expensive because it is no longer manufactured.
