ToneTuga FX Releases the Clockwork MultiDriver

A 3-knob dirt workhorse that ranges from treble boost to thundering fuzz.

Charlotte, NC (May 3, 2019) -- Can you only have one dirt pedal? This question is the driving force behind the creation of the Clockwork MultiDriver. As fans of smaller pedalboards, ToneTuga FX set out to make one easy-to-use dirt pedal that covered multiple grit categories without sacrificing tone. The Clockwork MultiDriver spans all the way from a crisp treble boost, to a crunchy distortion, to a fuzzy sustain.

“I wanted something that didn't feel like it was three independent knobs, but rather three knobs that all work together in a sweet harmony,” says ToneTuga FX designer, Michael Verala. Inspired by the synchronous inner-workings of a grandfather clock, ToneTuga FX wanted to make sure that every setting was valid and sounded incredible. There is not just one sweet-spot on the Clockwork MultiDriver, as every knob position is meticulously thought-out and designed with a specific sonic purpose.

ToneTuga FX call this a MultiDriver because at low gain settings, it acts like a treble booster, at mid gain/high volume, you get a sweet crunchy distortion, and at high gain/high volume, you get a fuzz face lead tone.

Secret Setting:

Bit Crush-Factory of Fuzz-ish Atom Smashing Glitch Nonsense: Gain set to max, roll guitar volume around minimum (1-2) for absolute destruction. Set guitar volume to approximately 3 edge of destruction) for a filtered /bit crushed fuzz tone. **These effects are at their best when the Clockwork MultiDriver is first in the signal chain**

Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
