Rare Buzz Effects Tone Station 1970 Edition Overdrive Pedal


Based on the foundation of the original Tone Station, the 1970 Edition features a higher gain transistor in the input stage and an unusual clipping arrangement to offer a more open, tube-like sound. Visual amendments to the original include vintage-style pointer knobs, a new color scheme on the enclosure and circuit boards decorated with 1970s dancers and a disco ball. The components are hand selected to keep with the them, including vintage power capacitors and carbon film resistors. 

Like the original tone station, this version is an all discrete light to medium gain overdrive pedal with a unique tone control.
