Tate FX are a UK-based pedal manufacturer specialising in overdrive pedals of every variety. Combining refined classic designs with top-notch components and eye-popping designs, they’ll make a colourful addition to your board – both in terms of sound and looks!
The Antares is modelled on the classic Tubescreamer sound, with the addition of a Burr Brown opamp. This provides extra saturation in the low end and midrange, for a slightly more high-resolution take on the classic Japanese overdrive.
Here’s what Tate FX say:
The Antares Overdrive is my attempt to create the perfect mid pushed overdrive. Taking influence from a couple of my favourite Japanese overdrives and tweaking until I was happy I came up with this.
Featuring a Hi-Fi grade Burr Brown opamp this overdrive really hits home with warm gain tones through to pushed mid tones. The 'Clean' control lets you blend your clean signal into your drive tone. This is great to retain clarity or certain bass frequencies that a mid-pushed drive can tend to remove.
As with all Tate FX pedals the Antares features hi-grade, Panasonic and Wima capacitors, 1% metal film resistors, heavy duty Alpha footswitches and premium Lumberg jacks.
