Subdecay's Variac Overdrive packs the sound of a hot-rodded tube preamp and a power amp into discreet pedal format. The Variac offers expressive overdrive with the articulation and touch sensitivity a tube amp, so players can leave that back-breaker at home and let this pedal shine. Headroom is determined by the power supply: this supports up to 18V in for maximum sound quality.
With tons of hidden controls to optimize the sound to individual preference, the Variac is perfect for classic rock tube-style distortion tones.
