This device is a tube distortion/over drive effect for guitar.
Thanks to the particular PCB design and a meticulous search for quality of the sound REPro it has managed to create a distortion of the unique harmonic respose and great versatility.
Thanks to the quality of components and engineering, we think we have reached our goal at the best. Using VALVE AGE MODEL 1 you don’t ruin the sound of your guitar, but rather, you will emphasise the character of your pickup!
VALVE AGE MODEL1 has 5 knobs and a toggle switch: S-WAVE, TUBE, TONE, BIAS, VOLUME, SINUSOIDE.
S-wave controls the first distortion stage, smoothing out the waves and giving the sound a warm sound and incisive.
SINUSOIDE This toggle switch It allows you to select the type of distortion: in the first position you will have only positive wave crest, the second, both the positive and the negative. Selecting the second position would obtain an attenuation of the output signal of 12db. due to the transition of wave crests . This attenuation can be compensated by adjusting the volume control.
TUBE acts on the signal which transits in grids of sending her valve gradually more and more saturated. This turns VALVE AGE MODE 1, through a particular circuit configuration, in a pre-amp tube. Enriching your signal of even harmonic.
BIAS this particular control changes the current passing through the valve, allowing to change the colors to your sound.
TONE is a filter that acts on the frequency providing you find your tonal response. Turning the knob to the left acts as a low pass to a minimum attenuating the high frequencies, while turning the knob toward the right will emphasize high frequencies. Keeping the potentiometer in the center will not be making any changes of frequencies (FLAT ). The cutoff frequency. It has an attenuation of -12db per octave VOLUME adjusts the output volume. FOOTSWITCH for the activation of the effect pedal is a TRUE BYPASS.
