Manufacturer's ID: TD
What we say:
If you need a touch responsive overdrive that gives you pretty much all flavours of 'British' amp gain, look no further.
Vertex have designed their T Drive right next to a boutique Trainwreck amp and distilled every last ounce of vintage British tone into this single pedal. Two control knobs - Volume and Gain - are all you need to go from early 60s glassy tones to mid 70s roar and beyond. The T Drive has no EQ setting since it is designed specifically to work with your amp's own EQ.
Plug into this and experience some real harmonically alive authentic tones full of quality and expression. The T Drive responds well to guitar volume and pickup changes and really allows your choice of guitar to shine through. This is a simple yet spectacular pedal, put together in California.
The T Drive is a sonic recreation of the legendary Trainwreck™ Express amplifier. Rooted in the tradition of British amps from the 60's & 70's Trainwrecks™ are famous for their fast pick response and their exceptional dynamics from chimey "Vox" style cleans, to a soaring "Plexi" overdrive. To most accurately recreate the harmonic complexity of the Trainwreck™ amps in a stompbox, we took painstaking measures find a "real deal" Trainwreck™ Express to compare for sonic accuracy & consulted longtime Trainwreck™ owners for guidance, providing us with recordings & feedback A/B-ing their Trainwrecks™ against our T Drive prototype. Our quest to create the the most accurate "Wreck-in-a-box" has result in the T Drive, a pedal with the dynamics, harmonic complexity, and "voice-like" overtones reminiscent of the amp it was inspired by.
