The Ultraphonix Overdrive is designed to re-create the overdrive produced by a Dumble™ Overdrive Special amplifier. Four Overdrive Specials were used in the voicing and calibration of the Ultraphonix, each amp ranging in origin from the years 1970-1990. Being modeled after four different generations, the Ultraphonix accurately captures the character of the legendary Dumble™ amplifier, regardless of the minute and more apparent differences in the amp from year to year. The Ultraphonix is more than able to provide the D*style overdrive in front of any clean amp platform. Engage the Ultraphonix in tandem with another overdrive pedal or in front of a broken-up amp to really cut through a mix with a huge lead tone or thundering rhythm tone.View full product details
Players like SRV, Eric Johnson, and John Mayer have been singing the praises of a rare 100-watt 6L6 Dumble Amp, the Steel String Singer, that achieved legendary status in the mid-1980s. And whether you're looking for a taste of Texas sweet tea or a return to Gravity, the Vertex Steel String Clean Drive MkII – now 33% slimmer and with an added trick up its sleeve – faithfully captures that “SSS” magic using an actual Dumble Steel String Singer #001. The Steel String MkII is dead-simple in its operation yet matchless in its rootsy mojo. With gain settings below 1:00, the Steel String Clean Drive MkII makes an incredibly versatile clean boost, with a Filter control to dial in how much of that D-style midrange shaping your instrument demands. Above 1:00, the Steel String Clean Drive MkII begins to sweeten your signal with vine-ripened drive characteristics matured in the California sun. Wide open, this pedal virtually breathes fire, with enough juicy gain to take you from Flavor Town well into Brown County.

When it comes to Mayer-style compressed clean and lead tones, the Vertex Effects Steel String Supreme – based on serial #001 of a legendary six-figure tube amp – is the only tone shaper you'll need in your arsenal. Whether you're front-ending a stage amp with the SSS's expanded all-analog preamp, feeding a little Texas sugar into your modeling device, or even running straight into a cab IR, this pedal is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Just like the amp it's named after, the Steel String Supreme is characterized by a fat, clean, compressed sound that absolutely marinates signals in tubelike harmonics as you ramp up the gain. The Supreme's active EQ and Bright/Deep + Rock/Jazz switches add new tone-shaping capabilities to this latest addition to the Steel String family. From subtle fattening and clean compression to full-on overdrive, the Vertex Effects Steel String Supreme is the next best thing to having a real-deal SSS in your rig.
