Tube Bomb Pedal V2
The Tube Bomb is a clean gain boost pedal designed around the venerable 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube. It provides up to 26dB of boost without adversely coloring your tone. When set to unity gain, the pedal preserves the input level while imparting the warmth and fullness only tube circuitry can provide. When pushed hard, the Tube Bomb can drive your tube amplifier into anything from mild crunch to full-on, singing-for-days sustain and overdrive.
With v2.0 we added a second volume control to fully exploit the range of gain settings available. Set one volume for unity gain and get the warmth and fullness only tube circuitry can provide and dial the other on up and push your tube amplifier into anything from mild crunch to full-on, singing-for-days sustain and overdrive! Settings are easily selected via footswitch.
Plugging the Tube Bomb into the Amp In / FX Return of a solid state amplifier will enable you to bypass the preamp section and use the pedal as a tube preamp for both guitars and basses. The same effect can be achieved when plugging an instrument directly into a PA system: just insert the Tube Bomb into the chain and dial in some character.
But enough about guitars! (We are an electric piano company, after all.) The Tube Bomb sounds great when paired when any electric piano. In fact, the concept for the Tube Bomb grew out of the tremendous popularity of our Tine Bomb Rhodes preamplifier.
