Collaboratively designed by Tone City and Andertons TV presenter Peter "Danish Pete" Honoré, the Tone City 'Durple' is a versatile mini overdrive pedal that offers rich and responsive low-to-medium gain sounds. Whilst not a signature pedal, the Durple is based on Tone City's best-selling Mandragora overdrive. The Durple has been slightly modified to suit Danish Pete's specific tonal tastes.
Please note: unfortunately Pete will not be able to sign these pedals before shipping!
A notable tweak includes the 'Mid' control, which has replaced the 'Pre' (presence) knob found on the Mandragora. Letting you cut or boost the amount of mid-range, this thoughtful EQ parameter allows you to attain anything from a smooth and scooped drive sound to a punchy, aggressive crunch.
The 'Tone' control has also been adjusted. While the Mandragora provides a super-wide sweep, some users have found its tone control to be too bright-sounding at its max setting. The Durple's tone control, however, is far more user-friendly. Offering a more moderate amount of treble, the Tone City Durple remains musical even when the tone control is cranked up all the way up.
Small & Portable
Almost all Tone City pedals are built in mini enclosures, which helps to save precious real-estate on your pedalboard. But don't worry, you don't lose any sound quality with micro-sized stompboxes! Tone City uses high-quality components to construct its pedals, and with true bypass switching, your signal will remain as clean and pure as possible when the pedal is disengaged.
