Swell Pedals B-TOD - Hi-Gain Bass Tube OverDrive



Swell Pedals (2006-2007)

The B-TOD is the combination of our SWELL TONE CIRCUIT for Bass with a Vacuum Tube for the ultimate in a compact and easy to use effect pedal.

Blending both input and overdriven signals together the B-TOD produces tones that are tight, round and woody at any output level.

Everything from a gentle purr to a bass-pounding roar is footswitch selectable for both live and studio applications via either Amp and/or Record-outputs.

The one and only Transparent OverDrive for Bass (B-TOD) is fast becoming the go to pedal for Artists …and for good reason.

As with all SWELL drives the TOD has smooth natural compression, rich complex overtones and is fundamentally transparent with NO loss of low-end frequencies.

Everything from a gentle purr to a grinding roar is footswitch selectable for both live and recording applications while remaining dead-quiet even with the output level control maxed out!

The B-TOD's real tube-driven tones are full, round and woody in addition to responding to both playing style and volume-knob tweaks like a classic tube amp.

Select between Drives 1 & 2 for the just the right amount of gain and the NEW Boost remote jack (another SWELL 1st) gives you unparalleled control of your signal level with any simple latching on/off footswitch.

From your home Studio to the stage cranked amp tone and feel at any volume level via Amp and/or Record outs.

Groove on over to the B-TOD.
