The VINTAGE TUBE MONSTER VT999 effects pedal has that full-tone roar of a tube engine under its hood, letting you take off with anything from warm blues overdrive to heavy distortion.

This high-quality stomp box has the warm sound of a hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube. In addition, the VT999 offers an integrated and switchable noise gate with adjustable threshold that keeps your sound noise-free. A status LED is included, plus there is a true hard-wire bypass for ultimate signal integrity.

With this monster engine, your guitar playing will definitely be kicked into monster overdrive!

J'ai fait l'acquisition de cette grosse boîte laide de métal (la VT999) depuis un certain temps... J'étais sceptique et même temps curieux! J'ai été surpris par le résultat, et surtout par la polyvalence du produit! Des ''Riffs'' Blues aux ''Riffs'' Heavy Metal, elle vous répondra avec prestige! Ajouté un ''Equalizer'' après cet effet, vous verrez la différence énorme de la puissance de cet article de Behringer!!! Pour le prix $79.00 (Can), un test vous convaincra assurément!

Finally a review. And it's my first. After owning it for 10 months or so, and waiting 6 months for delivery of it, here are my thoughts. Features and Quality: THE GOOD: Metal case, true bypass, noise gate, 9v sistem, tube driven. THE OKAY: Master volume can not be used as a clean boost(it will slightly distort with the gain off), 3 band EQ(2 mid controls would be nice, but I can still match my dry tone with the controls provided), and overdrive only,(could have fuzz/overdrive/distortion switch, but it sort of visits fuzz and distortion). THE BAD: Large box with control knobs directly mounted to the circuit board(don't stomp on the knobs), and no battery. SOUND: My old 1966 Traynor Signature Amp will chew up and spits out cheap sounding pedals. If it is junk, it will let me know, and it didn't happen here. This will react just like a tube amp. The more volume and attack you give, the more overdrive you get. From light break up blues to old-school heavy metal(for modern death metal, active or extremely hot pickups are needed). With the stock, cheap, Chinese tube, it is a little harsh and choppy. I have tried a 12ax7 and a ECC83 for British voicing. Both of them VOS(vintage old stock), both of them helped greatly in smoothing and improving the sound quality(a capacitor upgrade might also improve overall performance). It adapted to both voicings quite well. With the ECC83 in place, and a direct side by side comparison, to the over 3 1/2 times the price, Radial Tonebone Hot British, the voicing was nearly the same. You can shape your tone more easily, and it has a smoother higher gained distortion(but it is a distortion pedal). With light blues/county break up, and vintage overdrive sound, the Tube Monster is better suited for the job. The tonebone sucks the bass away, even with the bass fully open, very little bass. You can match you guitars bass around a 7-9. With it fully open, YOU CAN PLAY A BASS GUITAR THROUGH THE TUBE MONSTER! I haven't done a side by side comparison to a strictly bass guitar fuzz. But with the youtube videos I've seen. I LIKE THIS BETTER, AND WILL NOT BE SEEKING A BASS FUZZ PEDAL. OVERALL: At 66 dollars plus tax and a quality tube replacement. Nothing can come close to the value. Hands down beats any solid state overdrive, that is over twice its price. A couple of voicing mod options it doesn't have can be bought on Ebay, if you wanted to. It Brings a smile to my face, each time I use it. Great for amps with no overdrive. Or put in on the edge of you clean setting on your tube amp, using the master volume for natural front end boost'n'grit, or go crazy with the gain setting. Big smiles, so much fun, so little price. Can't go wrong. Great buy.
