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.

    LIGHT DRIVE

    The Light Drive is designed for those seeking an overdrive with the characteristics of warm, natural sounding tube amp saturation, allowing subtle harmonics and clear pick response to shine through, yet still transparent enough to retain your guitar tone.

    This is an extremely versatile pedal, whether plugged into the drive channel of your amp, or using as a booster into your clean amp channel. The natural sounding overdrive created by the Light Drive can be controlled with the volume knob on your guitar, allowing a very articulate volume response from light cleans to crunchy rhythms. It can go from subtle, lightly driven tones, to full-on blues overdrive saturation.

    Technical Information

  • True By-Pass;
  • Extremely reinforced aluminum box;
  • LED with high brightness/low consumption;
  • Totally handmade with selected components (tested individually);
  • 2.1mm power supply connector in front (similar to Boss pedals);
  • Dimensions: 1.5" x 2.6" x 4.8" (40x66x122mm);
  • Covered with polycarbonate adhesive, very tough.

    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.
