TC Electronic Vintage Overdrive
An Overdrive worthy of the name:

Effect of overdrive with a simple button "Tone" and "Level" course over the "Gain"
a foot shock for fans of vintage sounds.


The use could not be easier adjustment and one button press ... here is the vintage sound.
The sound is very easy to achieve with a wide range of frequency Tone button. It's going to sound dull for fans of heavy bass, the treble for the overdrive sound shrill ... brief extremes are never good, but if there is need to adjust or balance one another's softer pedal connected in parallel or to correct trebble bass amps, it is largely feasible with the pedal.

Anyway no need to take the lead with the manual ... unless you do not understand English but ...


The effects obtained are really impressive precision, and the sound is not too colorful. There is not even a breath when pushing the gain is very pleasant to listen and Registration?!

I use a VOX AC30 and some guitar, Fender Start Japan, Gibson, Gretsch Electromatic ... each instrument with this pedal retains its heat, but also keeps the identity of the sound of the guitar with no obvious marks of the pedal. It is true that the mediums of this pedal is that more than a so-called non-vintage overdrive, but its grain is very natural and the sound is more digestible than a TS9 that I hold as well, but now that I do so slight gain mediums for "fat" for some solo.

What I hate ... nothing. I can find flaws later but for now it is only happiness?!


I use this pedal for a month and I was looking for an overdrive with the possibility of saturation very light and not too typical to keep the sound quality of my guitars. Having said this pedal holds mediums that give subtle vintage as his side sought for the insane sounds of Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Black Crowes etc. ... Blues what?!

I have tried many pedals BOSS OD1, DOD, Marshall, VOX or other analog overdrive which I do not even remember the name, or even overdrive the amps to put in the same category as the effects are the same. Of all the vintage overdrive pedal tc is the most natural I've tried for the return of his lack of space. Now I admit to not use it for anything other than for the moderate saturation and filling sound of my recordings. I have rarely pushed to gain back because the sound is not what I want. That said I think this pedal is not made for that ...

I bought it for € 99 promotion on the net. Given the sound quality worth the price but the recommended price is a little high anyway.

In any case I do not regret this purchase really nothing, because I found "THE" sound.
