From Our Research Team:
Compression and Overdrive in a Single PedalRoute 66 offers classic compression combined with classic overdrive modeled after the sound of the original TS-808 Tubescreamer (JRC4558 chip and all!). These two effects are great on their own and can be combined to complement one another. In fact, Route 66 corrects many common complaints of guitarists concerning the original Tubescreamer - it was lacking sustain and bottom end. Combine the overdrive with the compression to get all the sustain you want. Add the Overdrive Bass Boost and get that big cabinet sound. The Route 66 responds especially well when paired with a good tube amp!
Visual Sound Route 66 Features:
Visual Sound Route 66 - great clean compression with amazing classic overdrive!
