Tri-Mode is My Mode

By The Chad

from Fort Worth, Texas

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone TriMode Distortion Pedal:

I've had this over a year and love it! I typically play a tele or strat thru an all tube Fender amp. The two overdrive channels are awesome. I can set one for standard overdrive rhythm playing and the other for a louder boost type set up for solos. I can easily adjust the drive on the fly and have a clean lead boost channel or dirty. And for some songs that require much more crunch I just switch the drive switch up to Medium. Never had to use the High setting. The true bypass is great too. It doesn't affect my true tele and clean fender amp sound. It's like having three channels at your disposal at anytime if you like playing straight thru your amp as an option. It has no battery option and the power supply is a 15 volt. They could stand to make a longer lead on the power supply chord for those of us who do not have a pedal board with built in power source. That is all. Keep rockin!

Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone TriMode Distortion Pedal:

This is one of the smoothest sounding overdrives I've ever heard. My only complaint is that it really colors your tone. It has a very distinct sound (it's an american sound) and guitar characteristics don't really shine through. Which this is fine as long as you play american amps. Sounds phenomonal on a fender with a strat, tele, LP, PRS, etc. Just don't plug it into your vox or marshall or you will get an extremely odd sound...the two don't work together well. It's extremely smooth, and you can go from John Mayer to Hillsong United to Bon Jovi all from this pedal. It gets up to where their Hot British would be dialed down really low for comparison, but we won't go into that because it's another pedal. As you can see, there's a TON of knobs, so your tone shaping abilities are endless...although it takes a little while to figure out all of them. I think it's a great sounding pedal when paired with the right amp and will do tons for you and sound great. I have a friend whose trimode has had the switch go out twice, but I've never had any trouble with that. Great sounding pedal, hopefully this review will help you decide if it's for you or not.
