The first offering in the Real Tube Series is the ROD880 Real Overdrive. The ROD880 is just that – a real tube overdrive unit that will warmth and incredible sustain to any guitar rig. The ROD880 works very much like and additional preamp for your amplifier, and when combined with various Drive settings on your amplifier it can be a very powerful tone shaping tool. Powered by one hand-selected 12AX7WXT preamp tube, the ROD880’s Gain and Master Volume controls provide a wide variety of overdrive tones, from clean boost all the way to searing, saturated sag. Bass, Treble, and Mid Boost controls with extended operation ranges offer a limitless array of tonal options, from the classic “808” tone to beefy, low end chunk. All of the ROD880’s sounds are kept clean and noise-free via the rear mounted, switchable Noise Reduction circuitry with variable Threshold control and a 1:2 noise reduction ratio. This tiny tone arsenal is powered via a standard 9-volt DC adaptor, allowing easy integration into your pedalboard or rack setup. When you’re ready for the real thing, the ROD880 Real Overdrive delivers.
