PRESS RELEASE - Lightning Boy Audiorecently announced the latest addition to its pedal FX line, theLightning Boy tube drive pedal. This FX pedal is our no-compromiseapproach to an entry level tube overdrive based on our popular SoulDrive pedal. We kept the cost down with a very simple plain metalbox, but we didn't skimp one bit on the components.  The pedalfeatures a genuine NOS 12AU7 tube enclosed inside of the pedal andlike all of our high end pedals, the Lightning Boy is made with NOSpaper in oil capacitors for unparalleled tone. To simplify thecircuitry and keep this pedal affordable, the gain is preset at100% and the tone control is dialed right in the sweet spot of theSoul Drive settings. There are no user adjustments other than avolume knob and true bypass footswitch. Gain is adjusted by thevolume control on the instrument. The Lightning Boy is hand wiredpoint to point in East Collins, New York USA with silver platedTeflon wire and silver solder.
