EBS announces the EBS ValveDrive DI!

The awarded original EBS ValveDrive overdrive/preamp pedal came out in 2006. Over the years it has collected high-profile fans like Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Sean Hurley of John Mayer's band and George ‘Goggi’ Holm of Sígur Ros for its ability to provide great classic tube amp bass sound - from a pedal! Now it's time for a revival! The EBS ValveDrive DI will be introduced at the NAMM Show 2014!

New outputs for extended use

The main new benefit with the ValveDrive DI is the XLR-output, offering a balanced floating signal that allows you to plug the pedal straight into the mixing console in the studio or at the gig. Add to that, the former standard passive output has turned into a low-impedance output so you can use the ValveDrive DI as a stand-alone preamp with an external power amp to give you the pure ValveDrive tone right out of your speakers.

New powering technique

There are plenty of pedals with a tube in it, but few deliver the warm fat tone of a tube amp. The original EBS ValveDrive was powered by a 12V AC power supply converted to high voltage inside to give the tube the push it needs to deliver real tube distortion. EBS has developed the ValveDrive DI to do the same using a 9V DC power supply. The benefit is a pedal much more compatible with standard power supplies.

The tube

The EBS ValveDrive DI is equipped with a superior quality tube.

Included accessories

The EBS ValveDrive DI comes with a 9V DC power supply included.

Price and availability

The EBS ValveDrive DI will be introduced at the WinterNAMM Show 2014, at the end of January. It will start shipping out of Sweden shortly after. Price TBA.
