V3 Route 66 American Overdrive pedal, the latest in Visual Sound's critically acclaimed V3 series has arrived with even more gig-friendly features and greater tonal versatility.

Developed by Visual Sound’s Bob Weil, and Chief Engineer R.G. Keen, the V3RT66 is a dual pedal that features separate compressor and overdrive circuits in one handy pedal board friendly box.

Watch the demo:

The updated compressor side now has a “clean mix” knob that allows the user to mix dry signal back into the effected/compressed signal for huge clean sustained tones that haven’t lost their attack. The compressor side is excellent for anything from tightening up your sound, to the heavy parallel compression used by today’s pros. The compressor side also boasts an improved “Noise Gate” section that can also be removed from the circuit via a top mounted switch.

The Route’s overdrive is all new, and is based on the classic Reverend Drivetrain circuit developed by Bob Weil and Joe Naylor. For a helpful addition, a “clean mix” control was added to allow various blends of overdrive and dry signal, including all drive or all clean boost.

Additionally, a 2-position “Voice switch” allows the user to vary the overdrive tone between bright and open, or more saturated. Due to the V3 Route 66’s pure sound, and its clean mix controls, the dual pedal can enhance the sound of guitar or bass, and even keyboards and other electronic instruments.

As with all V3 series pedals, the V3 Route 66 features the Visual Sound Lifetime Warranty.

Street Price: $179
