Visual Sound Announces VS-XO Dual Overdrive

The new VS-XO includes true-bypass switching, three clipping modes, and a Pure Tone buffer.

Nashville, TN (November 15, 2013) -- Visual Sound recently announced the VS-XO Premium Overdrive. Here are the details from their website:

The right channel has pronounced mids without being honky. In addition to Drive, Tone, and Volume knobs, it also has a 3-way Clipping (diodes) switch, a 3-way Bass switch, and a Clean Mix knob. The left channel also has Drive, Tone and Volume knobs, along with a Bass knob, but with flat mids, making it sound very amp-like. The VS-XO is a tone-experimenter’s dream pedal. The sound options are nearly endless.

On top of that, the VS-XO is the first Visual Sound pedal to incorporate True-Bypass, but done our way. Bob Weil invented new foot-switches which look traditional, but interact with gold-plated relays, and will last forever. RG Keen invented a circuit to keep them quiet. You also have the choice of internally switching the Pure Tone buffer on or off with each channel. If you use a switching system or want to change the order of effects, no problem… separate Ins and Outs allow for that. If you just want to plug one cable in and one out normally, you can do that too. And since we didn’t skimp on anything having to do with reliability, the new VS-XO is covered by the Visual Sound Lifetime Warranty. So there it is… the pedal you’ve been waiting for! Coming soon… hopefully by mid-November.
