    Product Description

    The Valvenergy Silk Drive pedal pumps out the powerful cleans and creamy overdrive tones of classic boutique amps. Powered by Korg's innovative Nutube technology, this stompbox accurately captures the warmth, feel and dynamic touch-sensitivity of real-life valve amplifiers - all from a compact unit that can easily be mounted onto a pedalboard!

    Boutique Overdrive Tones

    Inspired by the harmonically-rich gain sounds of vintage-style amplifiers, the Vox Silk Drive pedal goes beyond the typical amp-in-a-box formula to offer a truly flexible valve-like overdrive. Its all-analogue signal path and Nutube circuitry provides a natural valve amp response, while the internally-boosted voltage ensures greater headroom and prevents an overly-compressed sound.

    OLED Display

    An intuitive high-contrast OLED display shows an oscilloscope reading while the pedal is active or bypassed. This allows you to understand exactly how your signal is affected, but perhaps more importantly - it just looks super-cool! This display also shows which mode you are currently using. 

    3 Output Modes

    Speaking of which, three output modes make the Vox Silk Drive very adaptable and easy to integrate into any guitar rig. You can use it as a standard pedal, a line-level preamp or a direct amp simulator using the built-in analogue cabinet simulator.

    Use 'Standard' mode with your normal setup to give your amp a completely new voice, or use the 'Preamp' or 'Cab-Sim' modes for recording directly into an audio interface. In each mode, the all-analogue design and active EQ controls make it simple and inspiring to dial-in the perfect sound.

    Channel Link Feature

    The Silk Drive's 'Channel Link' feature lets you chain two or more Valvenergy pedals together. A conventional 1/8” stereo cable will link 2 stompboxes, and using a stereo 1/8” splitter will link 3 or 4 pedals. This functionality allows you to turn one pedal on while bypassing the others - just like switching between the channels on a guitar amp!

    Valvenergy Series Pedals

    Vox's Valvenergy series offers four Nutube-driven distortion pedals that deliver the addictive feel and harmonic-richness of genuine valve amplifiers. The lineup encompasses four distinct models, each inspired by a classic amp sound.

    What is Nutube?

    Nutube is a tiny vacuum tube developed by Korg and the Noritake Itron Corporation, as an application of vacuum fluorescent display technology. Like a customary vacuum tube, a Nutube has an anode grid filament structure and operates as a complete triode tube. It provides the same rich overtones and response of traditional vacuum tubes in a smaller form - just what guitarists love!
