(1 customer review)

The TightDrive JR was born out of the demand for tinier footprint versions of Amptweaker’s well-loved distortion pedals. It ranges from moderately high gain to clean boost and features a Tight attack switch and noise gate. Derived from Amptweaker’s Pro series, the Fat switches and Tight control have been reconfigured into a three-position Fat/Normal/Tight switch to adjust your guitar’s attack. The TightDrive JR has a manually-adjustable Noise Gate, EQ switch that offers Plexi/Normal/Smooth tone settings, as well as Volume, Tone, and Gain knobs.

Details: With ever-shrinking pedalboard real estate, a common request to Amptweaker has been for smaller footprint versions of our popular distortion pedals…..introducing the Amptweaker Jr Distortion Series. These pedals share most of the tone-tweaking features available on their larger counterparts, while eliminating effects loops, lit controls, battery switches and boost features that some players donâ€t need in order to shrink down the size and weight. Derived from Amptweaker’s Pro series, the Tight control and Fat switches were re-configured into a 3-position Fat/Normal/Tight switch to dial in the attack of the notes from thick and heavy to aggressive and chunky. An EQ switch similarly provides Plexi(Thrash on TightMetal JR)/Normal/Smooth tone settings, which helps the pedals cover much of the range of both their Fat and Tight parents. In addition to Gain, Tone and Volume knobs, thereâ€s also a manually-adjustable Noise Gate which can be cranked to stop notes hard and fast. And the great thing about a built-in noise gate is that it goes away when you turn the pedal off…..so your clean tone is unaffected! The pedals all include true bypass switching, 9-18VDC operation, and a thumbscrew- removable bottom plate with special holes to even accommodate tie-wrap or screw-in pedalboard attachment methods.

    Super impressed with this pedal. It sounds a whole lot better than a Tube Screamer.
