The TC Electronic Tube Pilot Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal offers classic tube-driven overdrive in a pedalboard-friendly stompbox. Borrowing vintage styling and an intuitive layout, the Tube Pilot is the stuff of dreams.
Saturated tube overdrive
The Tube Pilot is equipped with a 12AX7 valve, which is at the heart of this awesome tonal powerhouse. Whether you're giving your tone a subtle push or taking it by the scruff of the neck, you can rest assured that nothing but pure valve tones are yours to be had. From laid back blues inspired lick to in your face hard rock hellraising, the Tube Pilot is everything you could want and more. Simply adjust the Gain knob to nudge the tube in the right direction and play to your heart's content.
Rich dynamic response
The Tube Pilot is delightfully touch-sensitive and responds to the subtleties of your performance beautifully. Each note is handled with the utmost delicacy to ensure that every flourish is translated transparently. When you deftly pick out notes there is a gentle roll off. When you dig in, the pedal will snarl and wail, kicking back with an enviable bite.
The TC Electronic Tube Pilot Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal is built to exceed the demands of today's guitarists. From bedroom practise, jamming with friends, tracking in the studio or heading out on a world tour, the Tube Pilot is built to take a pounding. The pedalboard-friendly design includes rear-mounted input and output jacks, whilst the diminuitive dimensions allow you to slot it into any setup with ease. The durable control knobs and footswitch are reassuringly robust, allowing you to play with enthusiasm.
As we've come to expect from the team at TC Electronic, the Tube Pilot is equipped with their high quality true bypass circuitry. Therefore, when you're not using the pedal, your dry tone remains unblemished. There is no EQ built into the pedal, so input tone is preserved in all its glory.
The pedal is powered using a 9-Volt power supply unit (not included).
