The new VHT V-Drive overdrive pedal's controls feature standard Drive and Volume controls, as well as four more unique controls.
The V-Drive’s 11-position Select switch provides ten different clipping diode configurations plus a clean-boost diode-bypass mode.
The V-Drive’s Select switch replicates the diode type and configuration of overdrive pedals of the ‘80s and ‘90s as well as some of today’s boutique designs, according to VHT. The V-Drive also offers several new diode types and configurations.
The V-Drive’s Texture control adjusts the overdrive texture and harmonic content. Working in conjunction with the Select switch, these two controls provide a range of fine-tunable overdrive choices.
The V-Drive’s 11-position Depth control is designed to fine-tune the low-end response to voice the overdrive depth to suit a range of guitars, pickups, and musical styles.
The V-Drive’s Tone knob is voiced higher than is commonly expected. It adjusts the treble content without altering the midrange, the company says. The V-Drive’s Tone control is designed to work in conjunction with the Depth control to provide a wider and more useful EQ-shaping range than conventional overdrive tone controls.
The Voltage control uses a special voltage multiplying integrated circuit to increase the pedal’s operating voltage. The Voltage control can also reduce the V-Drive’s operating voltage to as low as 5 volts.
Pricing & Availability
The new VHT V-Drive pedal has a street price of $99.99 and will be available in late May 2011.
