DRIVE GATE - DG 1

The Drive Gate, the first pedal in the TopTone line, is the culmination of many years of working the custom effect pedal field. The DG-1 is an exceptionally well-defined and full-bodied distortion. Based on the classic four transistor, sustaining Big Muff circuits of the 1970’s, the DG-1 is heavily refined and improved, similar modifications made by Pete Cornish to David Gilmour in the Big Muff, overcoming the limitations of those traditional mid-scooped circuits.

The enhanced tone control covers a wide tone spectrum, with a well defined mid range, and no unusable settings in the tone control sweep. The Sustain control ranges from a light overdrive fuzz to full-on, high gain distortion. Perfect for classic drive, modern lead tones, or high powered, but very articulate powerchords. The circuit is very responsive to pick attack, allowing subtle soloing or aggressive, blistering leads, with excellent harmonics. The tone and sustain controls are also very interactive. Adjusting one alters the characteristics of the other, giving a wide range of tonal possibilities.

  • MATRIX

    The TopTone Matrix Head is a unique pedal with an innovative proposal. It was developed to meet the most requested needs by lovers of tube amplifiers, frustrated until now, for not being able to use their tube amplifiers in their homes or apartments due to the high volume necessary to achieve their best tone. It is widely known that to get the best sound out of a tube amplifier, the volume knob needs to be above 12 o'clock, that is, something like 50% or more of the amplifier's power, and this is very difficult, or practically impossible, to obtain in residential environments. The TopTone Matrix pedal came to supply and meet this need. It uses a fully analog circuit, developed with FET transistors selected one by one in the TopTone laboratory, by measuring its main parameters with measuring equipment. The result of this care with the precision of the circuit is a boutique handmade pedal that offers the guitarist a tone very close to the natural tone of the valves, an extremely clean and reinforced signal, with excellent dynamic response and very low noise level.

    It also has excellent performance when used as a reinforcement before or after the chain pedals or as a pre (return send) in the power amplifier. The Matrix pedal has a high impedance circuit that provides many advantages in operation, such as: a) making the “pop” typical of True Bypass systems almost imperceptible, which occurs whenever the Bypass switch is activated and, b) "matching "well with any type of pickup of your instrument, without losing its sound characteristics. The Matrix pedal by TopTone offers the guitarist a unique and innovative tool, which provides the desired sound of the valves, matches all the sound of your pedal board and can be used in residential environments as well as professional environments such as studios and stages.

    FEATURES:

  • Covered with polycarbonate adhesive, very tough;
  • True By Pass, avoiding signal loss;
  • Extremely reinforced aluminum box;
  • Totally handmade with components selected and tested individually;
  • Low consumption: 1,9 mA when in Stand by position and 2,8 mA when working;
  • DC 2.1mm connector Boss pattern;
  • Dimensions: 1.5" x 2.6" x 4.8" (40x66x122mm).
  • The battery is connected to the Jack plug “IN”; In order to guarantee long life to the battery you should disconnect this plug when the pedal is not in use or if you prefer you can use the 9V power supply BOSS PSA pattern with central negative (-) pin. I recommend to remove the battery in case of using the pedal with power supply or keep it for a long period without use. The battery in pedal without using, there might be leak and cause damage not covered by warranty. WARRANTY: Lifetime to the first owner. Shopping with resellers: For the warranty to be valid, is must tell us in your name and serial number of this pedal. Support or suggestions sac@TopTone.com.br

    DRIVE GATE - DG 2

    The DG-2 is based on the classic Big Muff circuit architecture like the DG-1, but the DG-2 is a whole different animal that is in a tone class all by itself, very unlike a Fuzz line. The DG-2 is a blend of overdrive and warm tube amp style distortion. It harnesses the best elements of classic British plexi amp tones, with the tone coloring enriched by germanium components and saturation reminiscent of a Rat, with and a hint of Big Muff harmonics mixed in.

    The DG-2 can be dialed low for warm, crunchy rhythm and lead tones, almost like an overdrive, or dial the sustain to maximum for searing, saturated, overdriven British amp-like distortion. The mid tones are very clear and articulate, allowing the DG-2 to sound just as good on the clean channel of your amp as it does on the drive channel.

  • SHINE BOOST – SB-1

    The Shine Boost SB-1 is a custom handmade effect pedal developed to provide an output signal with much more presence and gain than the input signal, free of distortion and low noise, with a purpose to go beyond the concept of volume pedal. The SB-1 pedal from TopTone intensifies the definition and the clarity of the tones, emphasizing the natural frequencies of the instrument , without compromising the nice features of the original input signal.

    With just one volume knob and a small tonal brightness key (mid & treble booster), the “Shine boost” can be used in any kind of sound and style, whether for clean sounds or sounds with drive.

    The SB-1 can be used in different ways in your guitar setup, the most common are:

    • between the instrument and the amp;
    • before or after the effects chain;
    • In the send / return of an amp.

    When placed before the tube amp, the SB-1 has the function of " pushing the amp" , helping to saturate the valves , giving the feeling of increased power and making the amp looks like much more aggressive.

    If placed before the chain of pedals, the SB-1 accentuates the effects of all the pedals that comes after him, such as the drive, chorus, flanger, phaser, delay, etc.

    The volume knob backlit in blue neon is an exclusive innovation of TopTone, providing an unique inspiration and a great viewing even in environments and situations with low lighting.
