Designed based on the famous pedal bearing the same name, BassDrive is ready to unleash the true power of the lowest guitar frequencies. Well-known as an excellent overdrive for bass guitars, this effect has found a new wave of popularity in heavy musical genres, where the guitar string gauges have gone far beyond the standard .046. Although this effect was developed primarily for the frequency range of a guitar, this does not limit the range of its application in any way: in the right hands this effect can be useful for creating music of all genres and directions.  Learn more about TL BassDrive.

The vibrancy and warmth of the tube along with the
digital precision and clarity - no need to choose one anymore.

At the heart of this effect is the desire to achieve a tube sound, with all its inherent roughness and vividness, from a dry digital signal. TubeWarmth adds even-numbered harmonies to the input signal, which contributes to expanding the tone of the instrument, giving it new colors and depth. The gentle tube overdrive further reveals new edges to the sound, emphasizing the new texture of the tone. This seemingly simple effect can be a great addition to any musician's palette.  Learn more about TL TubeWarmth.
