Tone City Model V Distortion Pedal

Convincing 60s & 70s British crunch tones in a versatile dual-mode pedal

Written by

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

Tone City has an enviable range of distortion and overdrive pedals, many of which are based on iconic amplifiers. The crispy crunch tones of the Model V hint at an iconic British amp model that has been around for over 50 years. The Model V can closely imitate this distinctive tone, with its dual-mode design allowing you to creep into more modern tonal territories too.

Tone City Model V - A Classic Vox Sounding Drive Pedal with Boost!

British Crunch Sounds

While a lot of the Tone City pedal range can deliver high-gain sounds, the Model V takes a step back and offers more old-school crunch tones. So if you are after something that brings back memories of 60s and 70s British rock, this pedal captures the essence of that specific era with amazing conviction.

Two Modes

This pedal is not just your normal V-style drive, as Tone City have also modelled another amp to enable even more versatility. With dedicated high gain and crunch modes, at the flick of a switch you can go from that legendary British crunch to a more modern-voiced drive.

Best of all, if you want to really push these modes even further, the built-in boost circuit really adds some heat. So with this one pedal, you can take your clean amp and turn it into a smooth rhythm machine, or a soaring lead fire-breather!
