Truetone(formerly Visual Sound) has completely re-invented the Route 66 pedal with the new V3 Series version. All new circuitry takes the best tones of previous versions and makes them even better, with far more versatility.

Here are some of the highlights:
• Completely re-invented Route 66 pedal, with new circuitry.
• Compression and Overdrive in one box. Use together or separately.
• Compression Clean Mix knob allows varying degrees of compression mixed with dry signal, and the ability to be used as a clean boost.
• Same Comp, Tone (with on/off switch) and Volume knobs as previous Route 66 pedals.
• Redesigned, quieter compression with more subtle noise gate circuit.
• New overdrive channel based on the Reverend/GarageTone Drivetrain pedal, but with Clean Mix and Voice controls.
• Overdrive Clean Mix knob allows for various blends of overdrive and dry signal, including all drive or all clean boost.
• Voice switch chooses between bright and open, or more saturated overdrive.
• Separate Bass and Treble knobs.
• The V3 Route 66 sounds equally great with guitar or bass, and even with keyboards and other instruments!

V3 Series common attributes:
• Each channel can be set to either True Bypass mode or buffered, via internal switches. The buffered mode utilizes Visual Sounds Pure Tone circuit.
• Features the custom designed Forever Footswitch rated for 10 million hits. This interacts with relays having gold-plated contacts.
• Lifetime Warranty... even for second or third owners.
• Separate inputs and outputs so each side of the pedal can be used in a loop device, or midi switcher. Also possible to reverse the order of effects with a patch cable. Just like having 2 pedals, but in 1 housing.
• Small, pedal board friendly size, with front mounted jacks. Smaller footprint than 2 MXR or similar sized pedals.
• Comes in a black velvet bag inside the package box.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Size: 5.11 x 4.45 x 2.05 (130 x 113 x 52mm) including jacks in front and knobs on top. Weight: 1.46 lbs. (658 grams) Current Draw: 36mA max.

Sometimes a pedal is so good (yet surprisingly under the radar) you feel like you should spread the word about it's awesomeness. This is that pedal. I won't bore with the why you need to own one, but if you're looking for a gorgeous overdrive with the added benefit of a great compressor, give this a try.

Really nice combo pedal from Visual Sound (Truetone). Extremely tweakable with mix knobs for each effect. Nice compressor paired with a TS style overdrive. I would recommend it to many different players.
