The Reeves Gabrels Distortion Engine
Pro Tone Pedals and modern rock icon Reeves Gabrels have teamed up to deliver the only distortion pedal you’ll ever need- Reeves Gabrels’ Distortion Engine
Reeves has spent the last 30 years pushing the boundaries of modern and avant garde rock guitar. From his 12 year stint as David Bowie’s bandmate, guitarist, co-producer & co-writer to his current position with the legendary British band The Cure.
The Distortion Engine is the most versatile, amp-like, and all-round heavy distortion we’ve ever done.
We’ve crammed a metric ton of gain into this box… but Reeves’ schedule demands his gear be flexible. So we aimed at covering a wide spectrum of rock to hard rock to flat-out modern metal tones.
In order to deliver that flexibility we knew it had to clean up well. Bottom line- no 1-trick-pony here.
Sweeping through the gain control you’ll come across all shades of vintage and modern distortions, some thick ballsy blues crunch and some good ole fashioned rock and roll overdrive.
In addition to the hyper flexible amp-like 3 band EQ the Reeves Gabrels Distortion Engine features a Mode toggle switch which gives you the option to select a more modern tone that cuts through the mix or a thicker low-end heavy vintage tone.
- Gain, Treble, Mids, Bass, and Volume controls
- Shape toggle switch to further customize your tone
- Operates on a standard 9-18 volt negative tip BOSS style adapter
- Power draw: 25mA
- True Hardwire Bypass for noise free operation
- Stomp switch built to withstand years of hard stomping shows
- Durable 3.7″x4.7″ aluminum housing
- Proudly built by hand in the USA
2 models of the Distortion Engine will be available, a single channel and a dual channel version. The dual model (available Q1 2017) consists of everything described above- multiplied by 2. That’s right- 2 independent Distortion Engines in the same box. When you need the ultimate in flexibility and sonic freedom.
