Five all analog stomp effects, featuring three with true tube circuits.
Tone Garage captures the pure essence of analog in these compact effect units by pairing carefully selected components with a unique design philosophy.
This new series is comprised of five effects units that feature all-analog circuitry. The Flat 4 Boost, the V8 Distortion, and the Straight 6 Drive all feature a carefully-matched, high voltage VOX 12AX7 tube. The Flat 4 Boost also incorporates a passive Baxandall EQ circuit. These three pedals also take advantage of VOX’s newly developed Hi-Volt technology and provide not only the warm tone expected from a tube but also the all important feel and dynamics.
The Double Deca Analog Delay features three V3205 Bucket Brigade chips, and the Trike Fuzz octave/fuzz pedal features specially selected diodes that have been chosen for their unique character and response.
Vox engineers named the series "Tone Garage" for its boutique-inspired, hot-rodded and modded designs that deliver classic and unique tones not found elsewhere.

- Discrete circuitry - the result of a relentless design philosophy
- True bypass design provides tonal confidence even when the effect is off
- Tough die-cast body that stands up to the rigors of the road
- Newly developed Hi-Volt technology on the tube stomp models allows the tube to operate at 200V
The philosophy of the Tone Garage series is to perfectly convey every performance nuance with inimitable tonal character without compromising the sound of the guitar.
These pedals, which feature carefully selected analog parts such as vacuum tubes and BBD chips, use rigorously refined discrete circuits. VOX’s unique new Hi-Volt technology allows the internal tube to operate at 200 volts, even when using battery power.
Relentlessly honed all-discrete circuitry
The internal structure of the Tone Garage series contains absolutely no integrated circuits such as op-amp ICs; it consists only of individual parts such as transistors, resistors, capacitors, and coils. In other words, this series uses unmistakably all-discrete circuitry. Guided by a relentlessly honed design philosophy, only carefully selected parts are used. These pedals provide an excellent response to the subtle picking nuances of the discerning guitarist.
True bypass design for confidence even when the effect is off
In addition to superb sound quality, great effect designs must also take into account what’s happening when bypassed. The Tone Garage series uses a true bypass design, ensuring that the sound of your guitar will not be compromised or colored when the effect is bypassed. Since the on/off switch uses a high-performance relay designed for small signals, the true tone of the guitar itself will be output without any deterioration of the sound.
Sturdy aluminum die-cast body for outstanding durability
Each pedal in the Tone Garage series features a tough aluminum die-cast body for outstanding durability. It will stand up to hard knocks during your stage performances. Simply seeing the killer graphics is enough to rev your motor and take your performance up a notch. The power supply, vacuum tube, and other internal circuitry are partially visible, projecting VOX's traditional design sensibility via appearance as well as sound.
