Seymour Duncan Twin Tube Blue Pedal
Seymour Duncan, seymourduncan.com
Just because a stomp box has a tube in it doesn’t mean it’s producing true tube tone. On budget-priced tube gear, the tubes often run in “starved plate mode” (kind of like your dietcrazed girlfriend), where they function like clipping diodes rather than signal amplifiers.
Seymour Duncan’s Twin Tube Blue pedal is the real thing. It uses high plate voltage with a 100-percent vacuum tube signal path to run the tubes to their full potential and deliver maximum dynamic range, producing all the gain and smooth tone you’d get from a high-quality tube preamp. The Twin Tube Blue uses a duet of premium military-spec, sub-miniature, USA-made Phillips-Sylvania 6111 dual-triode tubes, and it has two channels for greater versatility. Other features include true bypass, a fully encapsulated toroidal transformer for quiet operation, and a heavy-duty steel chassis. For players of Chicago blues, Texas blues, modern blues and classic rock, the Twin Tube Blue is one hot deal.
