The Behringer VD1 Vintage Distortion Pedal is a retro distortion pedal designed to sound and look like a classic model manufactured in New York City beginning in the 1970s.
The distortion produced is powerful yet musical, perfect for grunge or punk or any style that needs to rip through the mix. The Sustain knob sends the circuit into overdrive, allowing screaming notes that go on and on. And the chassis matches the period sound–the VD1 is housed in a solid metal vintage enclosure that can take a stomping.
True to history, the Vintage Distortion Pedal is a quality distortion pedal at an affordable price.
Authentic 1970s Distortion
This is not the tightly compressed, controlled distortion of the modern day. This box creates creamy, growling, flowing distortion made for power chords and screaming solos.
Helping you out when it’s time to wail is the Sustain knob. Turn it clockwise for longer and longer sustain. Think of David Gilmour or Carlos Santana.
Solid Metal Housing
Completing the “throwback” image is the big metal box housing the VD1, with big, comfortable knobs and an “industrial” bypass pedal.
