Peter Janis explains the Tonebone Trimode tube distortion pedal
"Adding the various EQ options opens up a huge range of tones – more than you'd imagine would be possible... Even at the middle setting on the drive gain switch, there's plenty of gain available for most rock and blues purposes; pushing the switch up to the highest position makes for a lovely, thick, saturated distortion."
Roomful of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bob Dylan
"The Trimode is great! I especially love how it turns a solid state amp into a great sounding tube amp. With quite a few of my amp set-ups it really works out perfectly."
Sting, the Pretenders
"Fantastic! As soon as I plugged the Trimode in, I knew it would work for me."
Messenja, Toots and the Maytals, The Aggravators
"Think of the Trimode as another two killer channels added to your amp. It's the most musical, best sounding OD pedal I have owned in more than 25 years, bar none. If you are concerned with tone, you have to check it out. "
