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.

How to Reamp Your Guitar | Recording Dojo

This well-established, simple technique opens up a new world of sonic possibilities.

[Originally published February 14, 2022]
Welcome to another Dojo! This time I’m going to show you how to reamp your guitar and explore some creative ways you can re-amps other tracks as well (soft synths, vocals, drums, etc.). In my earlier column “Why Guitarists Shouldn’t Diss DIs,” I mentioned the benefits of using a DI for creative recording. If you have a DI box, dust it off! You’ll need it when I show you how to get more out of your DI-recorded guitar and bass tracks by reamping them into your pedals and amps to capture new perspectives and even add some new reverberant spaces. Tighten up your belts, the Dojo is now open.
