Seymour Duncan: SFX-03 Twin Tube Classic
The high-plate voltage and 100% vacuum tube signal path allows the tubes to operate at their fullest potential and provide maximum dynamic range. The means you get the most gain and all the smooth tone you expect from a high-quality tube preamp. Two channels provide versatility. True bypass. Fully encapsulated toroidal transformer for quiet operation. Heavy duty steel chassis.

Purchased from: Guitar Center

Ease of Use: The pedal is pretty simple. It has two channels: rhythm and lead. Each one has its own set of volume and gain controls, and they share the same bass and treble knobs. There are two button. One is bypass and the other is the channel select so you don't have to step through different channels to get to the one you want. // 9

Sound: The Twin Tube Classic has great sound quality. I play this through a Gibson Les Paul Studio. You can put it through almost any setting and it will sound good and it will never get noisy. The sound ranges from distorted and raw, to fat and chunky. // 10

Reliability & Durability: The thing is heavy duty. It comes incased in steal. I would definatley gig without a backup. The tubes are supposed to last three times longer then normal tubes. // 10

Overall Impression: I play punk and alt. rock in a band. It sounds just great. The $200 that you will pay is worth every last penny. Not only is it great for punk and alt. rock, but you can get a bluesy, or classic rock tone. I don't have any regrets about buying the twin tube classic. Pick one up now. // 10
