Formula No. 55®
Next-generation 5E3 Tweed Deluxe inspired Foundation Overdrive with incredible range - from Grant Green to Crazy Horse!
Big and powerful, yet refined, the Formula No. 55 melts into your amp, transforming it into a wide ranging tweed monster!
The Formula No. 55 is a Foundation Overdrive that reproduces, in exact detail, the preamp section of the classic Fender™ tweed 5E3 Deluxe using an all-discrete JFET-based signal path. The Volume and Tone controls replicate, part for part, the circuitry of the 5E3, giving you authentic tweed amp response. The output section is designed to give you punch and volume with a low output impedance to drive your amp perfectly. Set the Hi-Lo button to "Lo" for the cleaner response of a vintage tweed. "Hi" is like hot rodding your amp by swapping in higher gain tubes.
Foundation Overdrive Series
Our Foundation Series Overdrives emulate classic tube amplifier circuits in pedal form and are designed to be used and treated just like you would the actual amplifiers. All of the real amp feel, dynamics, and tones you know and love at the stomp of a switch! Great for recreating cranked amp tones at low volumes or simulating your home amp into a venue-provided backline.
Delay & Reverb Series
One of our many passions has been to accurately recreate classic echo and reverb units from back in the day - tape, drum, oil can, springs, plate. As sonic archivists, we seek to emulate all of the sounds and behaviors of the original units - respecting those elements that made them so compelling while continually looking for opportunities to expand their range and usefulness. We also look to the muse to steer our direction on completely new paths never really knowing where we will end up - some familiar places and others uncharted.
Boost, Fuzz & Distortion Series
Clean boosting, dirty grit, octave freak-outs, classic garage sounds & screaming space dolphins - we've got your dirt needs covered! From warm and wooly to ripping and chunky. These you simply have to hear to believe!
The spice for your meat and potatoes - create new sonic flavors with a dash of tape flanging, vintage amp tremolo, and old school BBD analog chorus to dish up tasty tones that compliment your unique playing style.
