TC Electronic announced the VPD1, an all-analog Vintage Pre Drive pedal capable of producing vintage tube style guitar tones. VPD1 is expected to ship in June 2005 for EUR 275.
Based on TC’s guitar pedal design, VPD1 features a drive section and an additional boost section with a resonance filter that allows for emphasizing treble or mid frequencies when the boost is activated. VPD1 differs from a traditional drive pedal by covering the full range guitar signal, and was designed to reproduce warm driven vintage tones.
Intended to be a companion to TC Electronic’s G-System, the basic drive section delivers a distinguished vintage overdrive, getting a saturated lead sound with plenty of gain and sustain. VPD1 features Drive, Level Tone and Boost knobs, as well as individual on and boost footswitches. Also included are the top and mid boost emphasis filters.
