The VT1-Purist from DHA is a hand built valve Overdrive effects pedal which uses
a 12AX7 (ECC83) pre-amp valve to provide true valve tone, the tone generated has
to be heard to be believed! The VT1-Purist is designed and voiced for guitar players
looking for subtle clean to crunch valve tone for blues and rock.
There is a "cool blue" back light which acts as indicator for effect on.
Overdrive is achieved by using both gain stages in the 12AX7EH valve/tube to generate
the classic valve pre-amp overdrive tone It is great with modern solid state amps
by adding valve warmth and fantastic with valve amps by overdriving with a true valve
The Gain and Level controls let you select that tone you been looking for! And don't
forget the volume and tone on your guitar which will react well with the VT1-Purist
just like a real valve amp/pre-amp. There is a true By-Pass Foot Switch.
The tone is pure valve/tube, fat and warm and completely different to silicon effects
pedals which tend to fizz and compress the signal. Unlike silicon pedals you can
use the volume control on your guitar to control the amount of distortion you want,
just turn it up for the solo.
The output of the VT1-Purist is connected to a standard 1/4" jack for use with an
amp, desk or recording set up.
The VT1-Purist is totally hand built using a quality PCB. There is a one year return
to manufacturer guarantee which covers parts and labour in case of failure with each
unit. There is also a user manual.
