The Button Tube Overdrive Pedal

THEBUTTON

The Button is a tube powered overdrive guitar and bass pedal. The first thing you will notice about The Button is the feel. Unlike most pedals today, The Button is created from thick-gauge cold rolled steel. On this shining slab of metal, a beautiful layer of metallic red powdercoat is added to give The Button an impermeable finish that will last through hundreds of the toughest gigs.

The Button is a true bypass device. Using a quality DPDT push-button switch and Hi-Definition Mogami audio cable, The Button is absolutely transparent.

When you activate the overdrive circuit, you will be rewarded with deep, rich distortion that can only come from a vacuum tube operating at full voltage. The 12AX7 in The Button is not for show like many other pedals. Wall wart free, the built-in power supply applies 254V DC B+ voltage to the plate of the tube. This yields a tone that is full and rich with harmonics. Try that with a transistor pedal.

The Button is manufactured at the TubeDepot.com headquarters in Memphis, TN. Each pedal is handmade, serialized and signed by the technician that assembles The Button.

June 25, 2015: Our last 12 units are now in production. We will not be making this pedal any longer.

Listen to The Button: American Standard Strat through a Tweed Deluxe. Amplifier was clean with no distortion.
