chops off some bass

By Russell

from Cleburne, Texas

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone Classic Tube Distortion Pedal:

Even with the bass knob all the way clockwise, it chops off some bass - in any gain setting. most all pedals do this, thought this one was different. otherwise a good product. Tube is used as a buffer and distortion is derived from various stages of diode clipping. look at the schematic.

Very Good Product.

By James Steele jr.

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone Classic Tube Distortion Pedal:

I've had this pedal for a couple of weeks now and I have to say, It was more than I've ever spent on a pedal before, It was worth it. I use it with two Solid State Amps, One being my Peavey Studio Pro 40. This Amp sounds good already, I run a Boss GE-7 EQ in the Loop, but when I put the Tonebone in through the front of the amp, It really warms up the sound. I also run it with my Crate Powerblock that I run with a CD player and EQ for headphone practice. Again Great results. This pedal is very sensitive and every tiny turn of a knob brings different results. That is taking some getting used to. All in all, A little tube warmth is better than none, so I am happy with this pedal. It has a very Wide range of possibilities. Very good quality. The only problem is the Power Supply, At 15VDC it requires a special power supply (included) but I unplug it when not in use because it seems to stay warm and I fear burning it out. Other than that, Great Pedal.

Wow

By jimihendrix93

from London, ENGLAND

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone Classic Tube Distortion Pedal:

What a pedal! This things rocks. it can do so much. It goes from a light dusting of distortion for an indie sound all the way to a heavy metal sound. I bought it at christmas in boston because you can't get it in the UK and when i showed it to my friends; they were blown away. if you want a great distortion pedal; the tonebone classic is the way to go. BUY IT NOW!

More "natural" than a Hot British

By Dogstarr1

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone Classic Tube Distortion Pedal:

I've owned both the Hot British and the Tonebone Classic, but I recently sold the Hot British because I think the Classic has a more natural tone and feel. Although this is marketed as more of an overdrive than a high gain distortion, you'll find it has a very wide range from slight grit to at least an early 90's Grunge/Metal sound. It's a fairly easy to use with switches to change voicing that are pre-set, but can sound very different depending on the position of the filter knob that works in conjunction with the Mid-boost switch; it also has your usual knobs for treble and bass boost/cut. So, a good pedal that will lend a bit of tube tone to your sound and not add much noise, if any, depending on how you set the gain.
