- The ’59 Sound captures the essence of that magical amplifier.
Publisher: ZVex Effects
Details: Use the ZVex Effects Vertical Vexter ’59 Sound with any amp set warm and somewhat clean, and you’ll get a taste of the rich naturally transparent and dynamic distortion tones that make the ’59 Bassman one of the most sought after vintage amps ever built. The ZVex ’59 Sound loves to stack with other distortions, compressors, overdrives and fuzz pedals. Electric guitars are sonically complex. Different pickup combinations, different woods, different build types are all part of the formula. The ZVex ’59 Sound compliments these differences. The dense singing tones of a Les Paul, the twang of a Tele, and the sparkle of a Strat are accentuated, while subtle changes in pick attack and palm muting are preserved. Another cool thing about the ZVex ’59 Sound is how interactive it is with guitar volume. Try backing off your guitar’s volume and youll discover a lively, clean, sparkling tone that is noticeably different from the amps clean tone which makes it microphone ready. The ZVex ’59 Sound also contains an extremely high-head room, unity-to-50X gain booster with 1 megohm input impedance and low hiss. It is very similar to the SHO boost circuit with refinements to make it sound more like a standard amp input and less glassy. The boost channel can be used alone or in conjunction with the distortion channel. The boost channel follows the distortion channel so that the distortion is able to hit your amp harder (at a higher volume) when both switches are engaged, for boosting solos and what-not. Look out when boosting what-not!Controls:BOOST: Sets the boost level, which is engaged with the left Sets the boost level, which is engaged with the left stomp switch. [Start around 11:00 oclock].
