Tone City Black Tea Distortion Pedal

British AC-style tones in a mini stompbox!

Written by

Elliot Stent

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

Sometimes you need to completely transform your sound into something completely different from what your amp normally does. The Tone City Black Tea Distortion can do just that, providing that unmistakable cranked AC-30 sound that can really make your guitar sing.

If you're a fan of old-school jangly rock 'n' roll or just British rock in general, this pedal is a must-have for your pedalboard.

Tone City Black Tea Drive Pedal - Classic AC Style Tones

British Overdrive & Distortion

The Tone City Black Tea is not your typical kind of transparent overdrive that tries to keep your base tone intact. Instead, the Black Tea is designed to go in front of nearly any clean channel, turning your amplifier into something new.

The gain, volume and tone controls work like you would expect on any overdrive pedal. The gain control has a wide spectrum of grit, going from a mild overdrive to a big classic rock sound. The volume is self-explanatory, allowing you to match the level of your unaffected signal for a seamless transition, or turn up it higher for contrasting dynamics.

The tone control, however, is the key ingredient, taking you from a smooth and rounded tone to a bright jangle with plenty of top-end definition and cut.

Small & Portable

All Tone City pedals are built in a micro pedal format, which not only helps to save precious real-estate on your pedalboard, but also keeps your bank balance healthy thanks to their amazingly low price. But don't worry, you don't lose any quality when going down to this small size or cost.

The controls all use high-quality components, and with true bypass switching, your signal will stay as clean and pure as possible.
