    Product Description

    This pedal will not work with a 9V battery, and requires a 9V DC power supply (not included).

    Tone City are well-known for producing some of the world's best value pedals, without compromising tone or quality. With their King of Blues pedal, Tone City are taking on a giant of the overdrive world. Heavily inspired by the highly-desirable KOT pedal, a unit used by musicians all over the world, the King of Blues comes very close at just a fraction of the price!

    Dual Channel Overdrive

    One design element that really separates this stompbox from other similar pedals at its price-point is its 2-in-1 format. This means that you have access to two overdrive flavours, providing excellent tonal variation. Channel A is a powerful and potent overdrive with plenty of mid-range, whilst Channel B has a fatter and warmer quality.

    So in context, the mid-focused sound of Channel A makes it ideal for playing solos or heavy riffs with, capable of cutting through mixes. Channel B is therefore more suitable for subtle lead moments, where you don't need to be the loudest in the band but still need all of the sustain and response for a warm and musical tone.

    Simple Setup

    Some pedals that have two channels can be over-complicated, featuring multi-band EQ sections and more. However, the King Of Blues keeps it simple, with both channels featuring 3 dedicated knobs - gain, volume and tone.

    These controls are the staples of the overdrive world, with the single tone control allowing you to introduce more top-end presence if you're plugged into a dark-sounding amplifier.

    After few months started to produce a noise and whistle even at low volume, and I used that very rarely , I've been already refunded for this and I'm not sure if I'll buy any more Tone City pedal again although I've got 3 more which are fantastic and never gave me any problem (mini series). Three stars because it sounded great until it worked well, otherwise I would have put 1 for reliability.

    If you’re looking for a pedal that oozes blues tone then look no further. Easy to dial in the tone and the best part is that it’s quiet.👍🏾

    Mr CHRIS McPARLAND21st Sep 2020

    The Tine King blues pedal is an excellent sounding unit at a very good price. For me, it effectively does the job of 2 pedals and the same job as a Chanel switching option on an amp. It could do with rubber feet to stop it sliding about but I bought some and stuck them in - job sorted

    The King of Blues overdrive is exactly what I’ve been looking for to get classic Rock & Blues tones. A great product at a good price.

    Mr Tim Cross15th Sep 2020

    Unbelievable value. Channel A is so transparent that it lets your amp’s tone still sing! And plenty of gain for R ‘n’ R. If you want heavy metal, go for a different pedal - they make enough!
