The LegendaryTones Time Machine Boostâ„¢ has a wide range of uses. Use the Time Machine Boost to further overdrive your tube amplifier into more harmonically rich distortion or as a preamp to strengthen the output signal of your guitar's pickups. Its two footswitchable channels with independent volume levels provide further dynamics, tone shaping, and versatility.
The Modern channel is specially voiced to transparently squeeze additional natural gain from your tube amplifier to pump up your rhythms or solos. It is a completely independent circuit and design from the Vintage channel. The Modern channel maintains the natural tone you already have, but just gives you"more" of it by strengthening the signal from the front end with no tonal coloration and full transparency! If your amplifier is already being overdriven, the Modern channel can take your amp's overdrive "over the top" for beautifully compressed, sustaining leads. The modern channel also can function as preamp and can blend its boosted clean signal to an perfect for musical passages that need to stand out.
Warp Drive: When using the Modern channel, engaging the Warp Drive switch adds additional drive gain and harmonics. The transparency and full fidelity and frequency response of the Modern channel remains true while in Warp Drive.
Or click the footswitch to travel back in time with the Vintage channel to alter your sound with boosted tones that sing with musical sweetness and rich harmonics unique to those eras of the past. The circuit is completely independent from the Modern Channel and unique, taking only the best from the past and refining the rest. The Vintage channel brings you two modes to travel to: "1966" and "1973".
Toggle into "1966" and crank your amp up for tones that blend smoothly and put you up front in the mix by adding extra top-end sparkle with a mild overdrive. 1966 brings you back to the booster tones used by many of the British greats of the era and is especially designed to be used with an amplifier that is already being overdriven. Or, toggle into "1973" to fatten up and boost your single coil-equipped guitar, or add extra meat to the tone of your favorite humbucker-equipped guitar without losing definition or turning the sound to mud. "1973" will enable your guitar and amp to deliver a smoother, full-ranged rock n' roll crunch with just the perfect amount of midrange, reminiscent of the best boosted rock tones of the era.
When you take a trip with the Time Machine Boost into the past or the present to expand your tonal creativity, you'll discover that the musical applications are virtually endless!
