AC-Tone is the next overdrive in the British voiced vein, as the PlexiTone it is a three in one pedal. The AC-Tone offers two channels of overdrive, voiced alike for preset usage, on top of that it gives you an up to 20dB clean boost channel. The overdrive is low to medium gained for a sweet and crispy with the mellow midrange that reminds one of the old TopBoost amps from the late 60’s , the two channels are ranging from a mild breakup to a healthy overdriven sound. One channel can be used for that slightly chimey breakup, and the other channel can be set for more overdrive giving more saturated mids and drive, you can freely set them the way that suits your needs. The AC-Tone has as most Carl Martin pedals a built in regulated (+-12V) power supply, to secure the necessary headroom that gives you the great tone"Many manufacturers claim that their pedals sound like an amp in a box, but only a select few products truly earn this distinction. Carl Martin goes one better with its new AC-Tone, which delivers tonal character and response similar to a classic Vox AC Series amp. It takes a while to get used to how the three footswitches operate, but once you’ve got it down, it’s easy to pull three or four gorgeous Vox-like tones from the AC-Tone with a few quick foot taps. Don’t devalue your amp with mods: just get an AC-Tone, plug it to the amp’s input, and enjoy a whole new palette of sounds"
