Product Description

While the name and purpose of the new pedal is the same as the original '90s models, this version of Tube King, the TK999HT, differs from its two predecessors in that it features internal high voltage DC circuitry instead of previous starved plate low voltage circuitry. Includes AC adapter.

Using the 'starved plate' circuitry, the tube in the original Tube Kings really acted more as a filter to achieve tube tones. With the TK999HT the 12AX7 gets normal DC high voltage, allowing total linear operation of the tube. It works just like a tube preamp because it effectively is one. The result is that the TK999HT makes any solid-state amp sound just like a tube amp. The distortion is massive yet tight.

Features

- Genuine high voltage tube distortion pedal.
- Actual 12AX7 tube for massive yet tight distortion.
- 3-band active eq plus Presence switch for exacting tonal control.
- Void control for sharp rhythmic dynamics.
- Rigid zinc die-cast case.
- 12v AC adapter included.

Controls:
- Drive
- Level
- 3-band active EQ
- Void adjustable noise gate: produces "Machine Gun" effects.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (27 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Performs as advertised!"
Sound: You might prefer the tone as-is it comes with an Electro-Harmonics 12AX7 which is a very fine tube. I replaced the EH 12AX7 with an EH 12AT7. The 12AT7 reduced the gain and made the tone smooth and creamy. It shaved off the fuzzy character and really pulled the chords together with nice even harmonics. So for doing what the manufacturer claims it can do, making the sound of an over-driven tube preamp, I must rate this pedal as a " 10 ". The cool thing about anything that uses tubes is you can change tubes until you find your tone.(Don't do the tube swap if you are not aware of the precautions required when working on tube amps, you can get a real hot shock.) Feature: Has it's own easy to use noise gate, which really helps if you have a noisy setup, crappy cords and guitars. Always use the best cords with any gain setup. Comes with a wall wart otherwise that tube would eat up batteries too soon. It's heavy so it won't tip over or walk away. Ease of Use: Easy to use just like any other pedal, nothing extraordinary there. Quality: All metal, rugged foot-switch. Even the tube has a stainless steel holder so it is shielded and won't rattle. Value: Like I said, this pedal works as advertised Manufacturer Support: Haven't tried them. The Wow Factor: It looks good it's not a gaudy color or anything. Overall: It's a welcome addition to my pedal collection and will fill a gap I didn't know I had until now!
Style of Music: Classic rock and Blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "a marvelous sounding high gain pedal"
Overall: Clearing the air a little bit. The EH tube this unit comes with sounds great, I love the thing myself. Has a better sound than most of my higher gain units. The idea you have to rip the tube out of this and ruin your warranty to have a great sounding pedal is a goose egg and half. If you want less gain why not just get the White overdrive model??? Seriously the white one is an overdrive model the red is a HIGH gain pedal. This unit has 100v internal plate voltage and I think it sounds great, helps if you know how to set the knobs. I do not use the "void"control which some wrongly define as a NR circuit. It chops up the sound for more palm mute chug if that is your thing. I find it sounds better off. Seriously, the best sounding Zeppelin or ZZ type tones ever. One of the best gain pedals there is, not an over the top fizz fest but real body, thick low end and great sound. For the money it is steal.
Style of Music: heavy fusion everything from blues to metal, no country
