Based around the award-winning
Tonebone Classic, the Trimode is a 12AX7 equipped
tube hybrid distortion pedal that combines the
warmth and natural harmonic generation of a properly
implemented tube circuit with the dynamics and
control of our unique dual-stage overdrive circuit.
It is equipped with two separate input drive and
output level controls. Each of these work like
a guitar amp with input preamp gain and master
volume that lets you set each channel for the
desired amount of saturation.
The two overdrive channels
on the Trimode feature slightly different tonal
structures that have been voiced to accentuate
the performance. The rhythm channel is slightly
tighter to ensure the distinctiveness of each
string is retained even when the tone is highly
saturated. In solo mode, attention has shifted
to offer more cut and sustain. The differences
are subtle, yet very musical. And just like the
Radial Tonebone Classic, the Trimode’s tone
controls and distortion philosophy follows the
American tradition set by Leo Fender some 50 years
ago, the very root of all the finest tube amplifiers
Strap on your guitar,
plug into the Trimode, close your eyes and pick.
Softly at first... then dig in. Listen to the
dynamics – this is the magic that has made
the critically acclaimed Tonebone Classic the
most successful tube distortion pedal of our time.
