Compression and Overdrive in a Single Pedal

Route 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:
  • Thick steel housing
  • Improved Pure Tone buffer circuit
  • Tone control bypass switch for Compressor for vintage Ross compressor tones
  • Increased output volume for OD channel
  • Improved radio frequency protection
  • Upgraded capacitors throughout pedal
  • Upgraded Bass Boost switch
  • Overdrive and Compression on two separate channels with individual tone controls
  • Overdrive channel sounds like the original TS808 and uses the JRC4558 op-amp
  • Unique overdrive bass boost switch
  • Compression channel can be set for fully squashed "Nashville" sound or very subtle compression
  • Compressor has an integrated pre-amp controlled by a Gain knob so you can get loads of clean gain without overdrive
  • Combine the channels to heat up leads
Visual Sound Route 66 - great clean compression with amazing classic overdrive!
