V3VS-XO

Online

Unlimited Possibilities for Easily Finding Your Perfect Tone.

The right channel has pronounced mids without being honky. In addition to Drive, Tone, and Volume knobs, it also has a 3-way Clipping (diodes) switch, a 3-way Bass switch, and a Clean Mix knob. The left channel also has Drive, Tone and Volume knobs, along with a Bass knob, but with flat mids, making it sound very amp-like. The VS-XO is a tone-experimenter's dream pedal. The sound options are nearly endless.

On top of that, the VS-XO is the first Truetone pedal to incorporate True-Bypass. Bob Weil invented new foot-switches which look traditional, but interact with gold-plated relays, and will last forever. RG Keen invented a circuit to keep them quiet. You also have the choice of internally switching the Pure Tone buffer on or off with each channel.

If you use a switching system or want to change the order of effects, no problem separate Ins and Outs allow for that. If you just want to plug one cable in and one out normally, you can do that too. And since we didnt skimp on anything having to do with reliability, the new VS-XO is covered by the Truetone Lifetime Warranty.

I often put overdrives together for a cascading effect, so nice that Truetone has done it for us. I own this as well as the Jekyll & Hyde. Used one at a time, the overdrives do a great job, the equal to my T808, at least to my ear. Overall I would say that this box, at the higher gain end, is less harsh than the JH, and a bit less gain. Kind of a nice toneful Bonamassa sort of vibe. The buffers are good, the packaging and components seem first rate. It's not exactly cheap, but comes in a lot less than 2 high-end overdrives, which is what this is. The format is terrific, too, with the jacks in the top. Put this side by side with Truetone's H20 and you have a very nice-sounding pedalboard.
