The Fire Bottle™ is a very classy tool designed for pushing tube amps into breakup and overdrive. This compact, all-tube booster pedal has a warm and musical personality and is way more toneful and responsive than opamp or transistor boost/drive stompboxes. It’s essentially a vintage tube amplifier input stage in a pedal that works as a clean boost on lower gain settings or, when running at full-tilt, push your tube amp into beautiful overdrive. It can add some warmth and growl to thicken up your tone without losing definition and clarity.
This pedal is specially designed to work with magnetic guitar pickups and is based on a new N.O.S. (new old stock) Philips subminiature 6112 vacuum tube operating at true tube amplifier plate voltages. If you’re seeking a flexible boost pedal with a richer tone than germanium or silicon boost pedals then the Fire Bottle is the solution!
Guitarist Magazine review of the Fire Bottle boost
The 6112 is manufactured to meet the stringent MIL-E-1 specification for reliability and designed for long service life under conditions of severe shock, vibration (20,000G!), high temperature and high altitude. The subminiature tubes represent the pinnacle of tube technology and offer exceptional musical performance and reliability making this the perfect boost pedal for studio and touring in even the harshest conditions. Like all Effectrode tube pedals, the Fire Bottle is true bypass for uncoloured feed-through.
Note: This is a limited edition pedal. Due to the limited availability of high quality N.O.S. tubes we cannot guarantee continued production of this pedal any amount of time.
