Take a trip to the Tone Garage and you’ll see that Vox has loaded its three new drive pedals with 12AX7 valves, utilising the company’s Hi-Volt technology to up a nine-volt input to 200 (!) volts for true valve-like response.

Four of the five pedals - Flat 4 Boost, Straight 6 Drive, V8 Distortion and the valve-less Trike Fuzz - have arrived with us here at TG, so we thought we’d share the excitement of removing them from their various packing materials.
