Nu-X Introduces the Ace of Tone Dual Overdrive

Adding to the Verdugo line, Nu-X launches the Ace of Tone, a dual overdrive pedal stacked with Tubeman MKII and Morning Star.


In the left corner - Tubeman (with FAT mode): Tubeman offers more clarity and gain than a classic Tubescreamer, and Nu-X modified the circuit with a useful secondary function by simply holding the foot switch - FAT mode. Designed for cranked bass response to enhance the low-end.

In the right corner - Morning Star (with SHINE mode): Morning Star is based on the legendary Bluesbreaker circuit: transparent, low gain drive. Like NUX’s Morning Star pedal, it also features a simple foot switch hold to engage the iconic SHINE mode. SHINE mode offers more treble sound to create clear tone.

Use the Routing Toggle Switch to adjust the order from Morning Star to Tubeman or Tubeman to Morning Star. This option offers the option to stack the sound. Also, you can toggle BF/TB Switch for Buffer-Bypass or True-Bypass, and 9V/18V Switch to 18V for internal double voltage for wider dynamic range.

Features

  • 2 classic overdrive circuits in one compact enclosure.
  • Variety of modes and routing design to enhance tone options.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
