Vox Tone Garage series



    Three Tube Stomp Effects & Two Analog Stomp Effects

    Tone Garage captures the pure essence of analog in these compact effect units by pairing carefully selected components with a unique design philosophy.

    Three of the five pedals are genuine tube stomp effects that can deliver all flavors of drive to your tone. The V8 DISTORTION, STRAIGHT 6 DRIVE and FLAT 4 BOOST all take advantage of VOX’s newly developed Hi-Volt technology and provide not only the warm tone expected from a tube but also the all important feel and dynamics.

    Newly-developed Hi-Volt technology that overturns expectations for compact effect units

    Hi-Volt technology enables the vacuum tube to operate at 200V while still running on a battery. This enables a true tube-driven sound that overturns your expectations for a compact effect unit.

    What is Hi-Volt?

    VOX has revealed a new vacuum tube circuit technology called Hi-Volt. It delivers high voltage (200V) to a 12AX7 vacuum tube by using 6x AA batteries or the DC9V power supply.

    The discrete circuit works at 20V, which is still considered high voltage operation compared to other general effects products. The result is a natural and dynamic tone which is similar to that of a vacuum tube amplifier. Even though vacuum tubes are considered big by modern component size standards, our engineers were able to keep these pedals small, so you don’t have to worry about them taking up too much space on your pedal board.

    Gain control that lets you vary the character of your sound

    The transistor amplification circuit has also received a good deal of consideration. We've designed the gain control so that adjusting its position does not simply change the amplitude, but will also change the tonal character in a subtle way. From zero to max, it yields an array of highly usable and natural distortion tones.

    Carefully designed power supply circuit that extends vacuum tube lifespan

    Since high current flows through a vacuum tube when the power is turned on, we have provided a heater current slow start circuit that extends the lifespan of the vacuum tube and also avoids malfunctions for the AC adapter.

    The two analog stomp effects in the series are the TRIKE FUZZ octave pedal and DOUBLE DECA analog delay. Both offer a unique tonal signature from Tone Garage’s all analog circuitry.

    Main Features:

    • All-discrete circuitry - the result of a relentless design philosophy
    • True bypass design provides tonal confidence even when the effect is off
    • Tough die-cast body that stands up to the rigors of the road
    • Newly developed Hi-Volt technology on the tube stomp models allows the tube to operate at 200V

    The philosophy of the Tone Garage series is to perfectly convey every performance nuance with inimitable tonal character without compromising the sound of the guitar.

    These pedals, which feature carefully selected analog parts such as vacuum tubes and BBD chips, use rigorously refined discrete circuits. VOX’s unique new Hi-Volt technology allows the internal tube to operate at 200 volts, even when using battery power.

    Relentlessly honed all-discrete circuitry

    The internal structure of the Tone Garage series contains absolutely no integrated circuits such as op-amp ICs; it consists only of individual parts such as transistors, resistors, capacitors, and coils. In other words, this series uses unmistakably all-discrete circuitry. Guided by a relentlessly honed design philosophy, only carefully selected parts are used. These pedals provide an excellent response to the subtle picking nuances of the discerning guitarist.

    True bypass design for confidence even when the effect is off

    In addition to superb sound quality, great effect designs must also take into account what’s happening when bypassed. The Tone Garage series uses a true bypass design, ensuring that the sound of your guitar will not be compromised or colored when the effect is bypassed. Since the on/off switch uses a high-performance relay designed for small signals, the true tone of the guitar itself will be output without any deterioration of the sound.

    Sturdy aluminum die-cast body for outstanding durability

    Each pedal in the Tone Garage series features a tough aluminum die-cast body for outstanding durability. It will stand up to hard knocks during your stage performances. Simply seeing the killer graphics is enough to rev your motor and take your performance up a notch. The power supply, vacuum tube, and other internal circuitry are partially visible, projecting VOX's traditional design sensibility via appearance as well as sound.
