Unlike conventional, solid state overdrive/distortion pedals, the V3 uses tube technology to derive ultra smooth, dynamic punchy tones that only tubes can do. The all tube circuitry runs on high voltage which is derived from a 12V AC power supply and features three gain modes which are adjustable via four button DIP switch on the underside of the V3.
From vintage tones all the way to modern high gain metal the V3 can do it all. Using true bypass from a high quality relay means it won't color your sound when in bypass mode. It also has a tube buffered output ensuring signal strength when using other pedals in the chain
