EBS Announces the EBS ValveDrive DI -

When first released the original ValveDrive overdrive/preamp pedal by Sweden's EBS garnered huge support from a number of acclaimed bass players. The award winning pedal has now received somewhat of a rebirth whilst still yielding that classic tube amp bass sound, introducing the EBS ValveDrive DI.

PRESS RELEASE: The award-winning original EBS ValveDrive overdrive/preamp pedal was released in 2006. Over the years it has collected high-profile fans like Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Sean Hurley of John Mayer's band and George ëGoggií Holm of SÌgur Ros for its ability to provide a great classic tube amp bass sound from a pedal.  Now it's time for a revival - announcing the EBS ValveDrive DI.

The main update to the ValveDrive DI is the XLR-output, offering a balanced floating signal that allows you to plug the pedal straight into the mixing console in the studio or at the gig. Add to that, the former standard passive output is now a low-impedance output so you can use the ValveDrive DI as a stand-alone preamp with an external power amp to give you the pure ValveDrive tone right out of your speakers.

There are plenty of pedals with a tube in it, but few deliver the warm fat tone of a tube amp. The original EBS ValveDrive was powered by a 12V AC power supply converted to high voltage inside to give the tube the push it needs to deliver real tube distortion. EBS has developed the ValveDrive DI to do the same using a standard 9V DC power supply.

The EBS ValveDrive DI comes with a 9V DC power supply included.

The EBS ValveDrive DI will ship in February 2014 priced at £269 RRP inc VAT.
