Tone Garage captures the pure essence of analog in these compact effect units by pairing carefully selected components with a unique design philosophy.
The Vox Straight 6 takes 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.
With all-discrete circuitry - the result of a relentless design philosophy, the Vox Straight 6 features true bypass design provides tonal confidence even when the effect is off. With a tough die-cast body that stands up to the rigors of the road, the Vox Straight 6 Drive offers newly developed Hi-Volt technology allows the tube to operate at 200V, even on battery power
No need to worry about your tube with an inbuilt heater current slow start circuit ensuring vacuum tube longevity whilst you enjoy a traditional British overdrive sound. Add definition with a Bright Switch for full flavoured highs even with humbucking pickups. This is an all-around overdrive thats a great choice for a wide range of styles.
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. Weve 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 overdrive 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.
