This page is dedicated to the heaviest class of effects pedals, preamps with valves. All of the detective work here is courtesy of Mr Hakan Dundar from Turkey.  He provided the inspiration and information to compile this resource.

Many of the best tube amp manufacturers have produced an example of "big iron" - high voltage - valve based pre amp pedals.  They are hard to design, expensive to produce and the makers deserve respect for trying to bring ultimate tone to our Pedal Boards.

AMT Freak Guitar Pedal

The semi-parametric MF equalizer is the major distinguishing feature of this device. Using TWO mid control knobs (MID and MID FREQ) you can not only increase or decrease MF levels but also chose the band pass central frequency. This will give you a chance to control your instrument's tone more flexibly not offered with other regular effects.

Each of the two foot switches is equipped with optical sensors which control the electromechanic relay switching between modes on/off by means of a microcontroller. Thus, we have eliminated the problem related to mechanical contacts wear-out due to frequent effects selection as in regular pedal effects.

Brunetti Amps, OverTone

This unit has 2+1 channels that allows you to know the Brunetti sound very well. Overtone can create innumerable sound combinations: from the warm and fat tones to the most aggressive metal. You can play it as a preamp, connected to a power amp; or as a speaker emulation going directly to the recording or mixing system. You can even use both those functions at the same time. Thanks to its use flexibility and to its winning sound, It is one of the most "true" and powerful foot pedals. Overtone is all tube.

Budda PhatMan, ZenMan ,

The Phatman dual 12ax7 pure vacuum tube overdrive pedal offers versatile gain adjustments, finely tuned tone controls and super sensitive distortion. We designed the Phatman to lay down no nonsense rhythm crunch tones for power chords in addition to full on blistering leads. The treble and bass controls are subtle in that they emphasize the cut and boost of the mids where girth occurs. The gain control offers a sweet overdrive that enhances the tonal characteristics of your amp, whether it be tube or solid state. Removing the two thumbscrews on top of the chassis easily accesses the preamp tubes. A fully functional preamp foot pedal that emulates the famous Budda sound, the Phatman is best be summed up by Joe Gores review in Guitar Player Magazine, "The Phatman is a tone fiends dream."

The Zenman pure vacuum tube overdrive offers 4 stages of gain to deliver maximum overdrive. We modified the Phatman circuit to produce a hotter distortion that accentuates the upper mids for more aggressive pick attack and sustain. The meaty tones of the Zenman will jump start the front end of your amp and turn it into a hi gain beast.

Effectrode Audiophile pedals Tube Drive

The Tube Drive is simple to use and flexible enough to authentically reproduce a wide pallette of tones from mellow blues, to classic rock overdrive and thick, supersaturated modern guitar tones. The secret is Three dual triode tubes, where signal clipping occurs over 6 cascaded tube gain stages. In practice this means the pedal responds empathically to pick attack with a smooth and graceful breakup characteristic on low drive settings, producing an expressive warm blues tone. Increasing the drive introduces rich and musical harmonic overtones that pack serious punch for a larger-than-life, "hot-rodded" amp tone. The tone quality of the Tube Drive exceptionally musical, organic and sounds distinctly different to pushing an amp with a solid-state booster or hybrid transistor/tube overdrive pedal and it won't mask the natural sound of your guitar and amplifier.

Koch PedalTone

From Holland

Heavy duty components housed in a stainless steel shell, combine two individually controlled channels with a host of options that leave the user with no less than 16 separate sounds at his discretion. Channel 1 Clean, Channel 1 Enhanced, Channel 2 Distortion and Channel 2 Distortion Boost provide the first four sounds.

The first three 12AX7 preamp tubes send these classic Koch tones to virtually any input imaginable; from your favorite amp to any type of recording/PA console. The fourth 12AX7 tube acts as a 0.5 watt Power Amp, with its own Gain & Volume controls adding depth and attitude. Combining this Power Amp feature to any of the first four sounds now gives the user the option of eight individual and unique settings. The final feature on the Pedaltone is the famous Koch Solo/Rhythm control, which acts as a switchable second Master Volume. Engaging this feature allows the user two (foot switchable) volume levels per setting (a user controllable ‘rhythm’, and full ‘solo’ volume) doubling the number of settings available to 16. Engaging the FX Loop allows the addition of your favorite effects, and the Headphone jack allows the Pedaltone to be used .

Matchless  HotBox Classic , Cool Box, Dirt Box

Originals are designed by Mark Sampson during early 90s. Highly respected pedals.
Nowadays , they reissue them as HotBox Classic .

The Hotbox Classic is an active two channel tube preamp driven by two 12AX7 tubes. It is point to point, hand-wired in classic Matchless fashion and housed in a heavy duty, polished stainless steel enclosure complete with the Matchless signature back-lit logo and control panel. It uses the same top quality components as the Matchless amps down to the custom hand-wound transformer.

Channel one is clean and crisp but is also capable of producing an overdriven sound. Channel two features gain, bass, treble, and output-level knobs. Similar to the EQ circuit of the C-30 series, the bass and treble controls are highly touch responsive. Surprisingly, channel two can be eq’d to be rich and robust. The Hotbox Classic can also be used directly into mixing consoles and is ideal for recording.

The Cool Box is an active all-tube preamp box/line driver/buffer. The Cool is perfect for additional clean level. It can handle up to 0db input level and provide up to 25db extra gain.

Real McTube

"The Real McTube" is a simple self-contained, one-tube circuit intended as an overdrive/distortion preamplifier. It makes use of the vacuum tube's relatively soft clipping characteristics to provide a fuzz-tone or overdrive sound with a warmer quality than afforded by most such solid-state devices. A dual triode is operated near the bottom of its characteristic curves to take advantage of the unique distortion of which such tubes are capable.

The high-plate voltage and 100% vacuum tube signal path allows the tubes to operate at their fullest potential and provide maximum dynamic range.

SFX-04 Mayhem

The high plate voltage and 100% vacuum tube signal path allow the tubes to operate at their fullest potential and provide maximum dynamic range. Additional gain is achieved with a high voltage, low noise, discrete Class A input stage. The solid state input stage increases the resistance of the pedal to microphonics. The result is maximum dynamic range, the most gain, and the heaviest tone your expect from a great tube preamp voiced for metal. Also features user-selectable 4dB or 8dB boost for pre-setting rhythm and lead levels. True bypass. Heavy duty steel chassis.  Reviews

SIB FatDrive, Varidrive Hand assembled in the USA.

The FATDRIVE is a genuine 12AX7 vacuum tube-based pedal which can seriously upgrade all set-ups. The circuit is Class A and the tube component is fully utilized to create the tubing and tonal control benefits without other circuitry addendums in either hybrid or solid state form; i.e. pure tube only.

“AUDIOPHILE quality”. As reviewed in “Guitar Player”, SIB! tube pedals remain a full cut above other pedals in this category due to their advanced, very clean circuitry. You can rely on SIB! products to tube-up any musical instrument application performance or studio session. Reference clean with instant, remarkable effects.

The FATDRIVE is a clean tube preamp which can serve to bulldoze or overload the input of any amp or desk. For a more NATURAL, MUSICAL sound, use it to instantly add warmth, harmonics, depth, to ELECTRIC GUITAR, ACOUSTIC GUITAR, BASS, KEYBOARD SYNTHS, and VOCALS; and as a level control for EFFECTS LOOPS or as a DIRECT BOX. Extremely handy for both live or studio use; providing (Pro grade) tonal control and volume referencing / matching. The passive 3 band EQ provides a wide range of tones and the DRIVE and VOLUME controls give you total input and output level control for demonstrable optimization of any signal set-up.

The FATDRIVE has been a runaway sales success. The tube warmth is an excellent benefit though the FATDRIVE doesn’t stop there. It has numerous additional and very useful benefits. The ease by which the FATDRIVE delivers fast tonal shaping; the ability to finally take control of an entire live or studio set-up, etc. has won the FATDRIVE the dedicated acclaim and loyalty of headliner musicians and recording engineers.

SIB! Pro Grade Road Worthy Construction:
.True bypass with LED indicator.
.Internal power supply with heavy-duty detachable power cord.
.Powder coated 14 gauge steel chassis.
.Industrial quality components.

Soldano GTO SuperCharger

The SUPERCHARGER G.T.O. is an all tube overdrive pedal which incorporates the same circuitry used in our legendary 100w SUPER LEAD OVERDRIVE. It is essentially the overdrive preamp section of the SLO in a pedal.

This ruggedly built device is very flexible and can be used both as a line driver and an overdrive pedal. It has three easy to use controls: Gain, Tone, and Output. You can set the Gain low and the Output high to cleanly overdrive the input of your amp, or set the Gain high and the Output low to get massive sustain at very low volumes, or any combination in between. The Tone control is useful for accommodating the overall brightness of the amp you are using this pedal with, as well as for adjusting tone when connecting the SUPERCHARGER directly to a P.A. or recording console.

The SUPERCHARGER G.T.O. plugs directly into a wall outlet and runs it’s two 12AX7 tubes at full amp voltages, for a real tube sound. Additionally, it uses a relay for switching, providing an actual ’hardwire bypass ’, so that it doesn’t color your sound when you have it switched out.

When used as a distortion pedal, the line out jack can be plugged into any guitar amp input. The Stage Hog’s sound is very reminiscent of a good old hot-rodded vintage tube amp. The voice switch toggles between tweed warmth and plexi crunch.

Unlike full size tube amplifiers the TubeUlent is small and light. Weighing less than 1.5 Kg (3.31 lbs.) with the supplied power adaptor and the TubeUlent itself measuring approximately 145mm x 117mm x 144mm (5.7 inches x 4.6 inches x 5.65 inches), the TubeUlent literally fits in a briefcase. The universal power supply provided with the TubeUlent can be used worldwide with the correct AC cord, or an adaptor of appropriate rating can be used. There is no need for power conversion equipment or modification.

The TubeUlent has been designed and built for the rigours of the performing musician. With the exception of the tubes themselves, TubeUlent can withstand high levels of abuse - be it high force impact or long periods of vibration such as that caused by transport or performance events. External and internal hardware and finishes have been selected for high resilience.

This one is the first and only one which uses a power amp tube in a pedal distortion to simulate real power tube distortion .   Review

T-Rex SpinDoctor   From Denmark !
SpinDoctor delivers all the beautiful, saturated sound you’ve come to expect from T-Rex. But it’s also a triumph of design – packing a stunning array of features into a set of controls so intuitive and easy to use, you’ll have to try to believe it. Here’s what you get:
4 channels of T-Rex tone. For each channel, you set the gain, tone and output exactly how you want it. Switching between channels and making adjustments on the fly is simple, fast and intuitive.
Tone controls let you tune your tone (bass, mid, treble and presence) for each individual channel. When you switch channels, all your settings change too – giving you the perfect depth, sustain and edge no matter how much gain you apply.
Motorised knobs move when you switch channels – like faders on a state-of-the-art studio mixing board. They’re way cool, but they also provide mission-critical visual cues that let you monitor your settings at a glance – and adjust them in milliseconds.
Tube drive gives you the entire spectrum of analogue gain in a single knob. Turn it down low for a clean tube sound with just a bit of edge. Turn it up to lay on the gain. And if you want even more – hit the boost button and blast off into the stratosphere of world-class overdrive.

Udaloff V - 30SL - (very expensive 1,800 Euro) Russia

V30 - 30SL "V30SL" is a handmade tube Distortion for an electric guitar, based on principles of restriction of a signal. "V30SL" is equipped with three tubes "12AX7", essentially different three types of limitation of a signal ((Distortion))and the adjustable passive filter, which is adjusted to limitation of a signal.
These constructive peculiarities allow in details to control and if necessary to accent a timbre of sounding of your electric guitar - from a bright sound of the 1980s up to "dense" modern sounding. Huge in its tonal range and an opportunity of a choice of type of limitation of a signal (Distortion) in a combination with low parameters of noise levels and a background will give necessary open space for creativity.

Assembling of "V30SL" tube Distortion is executed with use of hinged installation, with application of silver wires with phtoroplastic isolation. The frame of "V30SL" is made of 1.5 mm steel.

In the scheme of this device it is not using active filters, that positively affects on a sound. Channels "CRUNCH", "LEAD" and "HI-GAIN" are balanced with each other according to loudness. The scheme is sensitive to the slightest nuances using musical instrument and thus does not change individual character of a sound of your guitar
