Product Description

Transparent Overdrive

Inspired by a pedal released in 1992 by a certain famous British amp company, the Tone City Bluesman brings that same character at a fraction of the price. If you want to keep your original tone intact with a bit of extra gain, the Bluesman will add smooth overdrive to your sound without colouring it, so the character of your guitar and amp will shine through as clear as ever.

The Bluesman is an articulate low gain drive pedal to add some extra thickness to a rhythm sound, but with the gain turned up, it will add tonnes of smooth sustain giving both power and clarity, ideal for a solo boost!

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.

Because I am old and can remember the sounds from the sixties and this pedal is authentic.

Oh, 2 parts to the feedback, huh? The pedal has very light distortion (or overdrive?) at first. Unusual and very interesting. It's smooth. The size is cute and it feels indestructible. And the price so reasonable. Wow. I bought the pedal because I heard the guys use it while demoing one of the newer Blackstar amps. And I also bought the amp, by the way. (not that I needed it) -smile-

Obviously I don't know what the Marshall Guv'nor sounds like. But this sounds really good - especially at the edge of breakup.
