Free The Tone Overdrive SOV-2

349.00

Description:

In 2011, Japanese electronic genius, Yuki Hayashi founded his company, Free The Tone, to focus on making pedals, cables and rack systems for both the mass market and a growing bespoke customer base. His first pedal is Free The Tone’s custom SOV-2 overdrive, a reworking of the revered Providence SOV-2 favored by numerous leading guitarists such as Matt Schofield and Carl Verheyen. The pedal is primarily designed to offer natural overdrive while maintaining the tone of the guitar. On the top of the red metal unit, there are three dials (level, tone, drive) with a bright blue LED to show when it’s on, this will get darker and eventually turn off when the charge drops below 5 volts ( useful for early battery changes (warning). Two-quarter-inch jacks provide the inputs and outputs with true bypass circuitry for the purist signal path. Unlike most driver pedals, the FTT SOV-2 pedal has a high power consumption of 90mA (9V), so while an alkaline battery lasts approximately 2 hours in use, it may be preferable to use a power adapter. The reason is due to a special bipolar power supply that supplies the internal circuits with +/- 15 volts. With over three times the dynamic range of conventional 9-volt pedals, the sonic results are very special and make it different from Providence’s current SOV-2. Tone-wise, the FTT SOV-2 overdrive excels in all types of blues and classic rock flavors. Set the gain low and open up the tone for SRV-like neck singlecoil licks or crank up the drive and roll back the tone for classic ’70s humbucker rock riffs or juicy Dumble tones. With this classy pedal and your guitar’s pickup and volume controls you’re sure to have plenty of options! There are a handful of overdrives that have created their own folklore. The Ibanez TS808 and TS9 Tube Screamers qualify, as does the near-mythical Klon Centaur. We argue that the SOV series is also acquiring a legend of its own, thanks in part to British blues talent Matt Schofield, who has been using a custom-made SOV-2 for years, and which also has his signature.
