Lightning Boy Audio (LBA) recently announced the latest addition to its pedal FX line, the Lightning Boy tube drive pedal.
They kept the cost down with a very simple plain metal box, but they didn’t skimp one bit on the components.
The pedal features a genuine NOS 12AU7 tube enclosed inside of the pedal and like all of their high end pedals, the Lightning Boy is made with NOS paper in oil capacitors for unparalleled tone.
To simplify the circuitry and keep this pedal affordable, the gain is preset at 100% and the tone control is dialled right in the sweet spot of the Soul Drive settings.
There are no user adjustments other than a volume knob and true bypass footswitch.
Gain is adjusted by the volume control on the instrument.
The Lightning Boy is hand wired point to point in East Collins, New York USA with silver plated Teflon wire and silver solder.
