Lightning Boy Audio has added another addition to it's every
growing line of FX with the announcement of the Lightning Boy Tube
PRESS RELEASE - Lightning Boy Audio
recently announced the latest addition to its pedal FX line, the
Lightning Boy tube drive pedal. This FX pedal is our no-compromise
approach to an entry level tube overdrive based on our popular Soul
Drive pedal. We kept the cost down with a very simple plain metal
box, but we didn't skimp one bit on the components. The pedal
features a genuine NOS 12AU7 tube enclosed inside of the pedal and
like all of our high end pedals, the Lightning Boy is made with NOS
paper in oil capacitors for unparalleled tone. To simplify the
circuitry and keep this pedal affordable, the gain is preset at
100% and the tone control is dialed right in the sweet spot of the
Soul Drive settings. There are no user adjustments other than a
volume knob and true bypass footswitch. Gain is adjusted by the
volume control on the instrument. The Lightning Boy is hand wired
point to point in East Collins, New York USA with silver plated
Teflon wire and silver solder.
Pricing and availability
The Lightning Boy is available for $99.99 (US)
exclusively through the Lightning Boy Audio online store (). If you
pre-order before the February 21st release date, you
have the option of a limited run of 50 Lightning Boy Tube Drives
with a hand painted logo.
LBA has long been recognized for its outstanding
recording studio equipment and equipment modifications. They
released the popular Soul Drive tube drive pedal earlier this year.
Every LBA pedal is hand wired point to point just like a boutique
amplifier, and feature hand-made paper in oil capacitors, NOS
capacitors, and NOS tubes to provide exceptional audio quality for
the most discerning musicians and audio professionals.
