MI Audio Tube Zone Overdrive Pedal
With the new Tube Zone, you can dial in your sound, regardless of the equipment you have to work with. Also, the mid switch has evolved into a continuous midrange control. This allows perfect setting for the mids. If these 6 external controls weren't enough (Gain, Tone, Volume, Character, Mids, Brightness), a seventh 'presence' trimmer was added to adjust the overall balance and sparkle of the Tube Zone.
Top of the range, most flexible MI Audio Overdrive Pedal.
4 clipping stages for tube amp-like response and tone
Works comfortably as a low or high gain device.
A total of 6 external controls, and one internal control for the ultimate flexibiliy:
*Gain control with unique taper to provide excellent control over overdrive.
*High/Low balancing control tone control
*Volume Control with output up to 15Vpp with correct power supply!
*New dedicated midrange control
*New external character control for adding 'momentum' to guitar notes, or keeping things tight
*New external brightness control for controlling top end content, and to help match the Tube Zone to different amps.
*New internal presence control to further help dial in the Tube Zone's tone.
Single ended class A output.
