COPPERHEAD DRIVE


This pedal recreates the classic full stack amp tone, used for the powerful sound of hard rock in the 80s. Use it for lightly overdriven tones or thick distortion.


• GAIN knob: Sets the amount of distortion.
• VOLUME knob: Sets the final volume.
• TREBLE knob: Adjusts the high-frequency range. Turning the knob toward the left produces a softer tone,and turning it toward the right provides a bright tone.
• MIDDLE knob: Adjusts the mid-frequency range. Turning the knob toward the right provides a rich mid-range.
• BASS knob: Adjusts the low-frequency range. Turning the knob toward the left produces a thinner and lighter tone, and turning it toward the right provides a warm and heavy tone.
• BRIGHT knob: This is placed before the distortion stage , providing a different character of distortion at each position of the switch.

The VALVENERGY series offers four effect pedals that provide the response and harmonic distortion of a tube amp,
putting popular amp sounds into a pedal.

In addition to developing traditional tube amps that use conventional vacuum tubes, VOX has also been researching revolutionary guitar amps that use Nutube, the new vacuum tube. Taking advantage of the technology obtained through the development of these amps, we have now developed a line of Nutube pedals. Featuring the sound and feel of a tube amp, this series delivers four classic amp sounds that are indispensable to the music of today. It also offers new channel switching and line-level output features not previously found in pedals.

What is the Nutube?


Nutube is a new vacuum tube that was developed by KORG Corporation in conjunction with Noritake Itron Corporation as an application of vacuum fluorescent display technology. Like a conventional vacuum tube, a Nutube has an anode grid filament structure, and operates as a complete triode tube. It provides the same rich overtones and response that are distinctive of conventional vacuum tubes.

• Equipped with Nutube, providing vacuum tube sound and response
• Buffered bypass reduces noise when the effect is turned off
• Connection mode can be switched according to your use
• Channel switch function allows operation similar to a multi-channel amp when multiple VALVENERGY series
units are connected
• OLED display provides a visual indication of the sound

Equipped with Nutube for vacuum tube sound and response


Acclaimed as revolutionary, the Nutube was collaboratively developed by KORG and Noritake Itron, and is at the heart of the VALVENERGY series. This gives the VALVENERGY series the same response, rich overtone structure, and sense of power as you expect from a vacuum tube amp.

Analog circuit design with ample headroom


The VALVENERGY series is made of all analog circuits with the 9V power supply voltage boosted to 15V internally. This allows for greater volume and headroom, and delivers an even more dynamic sound. It's a circuit design that fully utilizes the potential of the VALVENERGY series.

Three connection modes that you can switch according to your situation


You can switch modes as appropriate for the way in which you're using the pedal.
STANDARD: The pedal outputs an instrument-level signal. Connect to the input of your guitar amp in the same way as when using a conventional pedal.
PREAMP: The pedal outputs a line-level signal. Connect to the return jack of your amp or to the input of your power amp to then use with a guitar cabinet.
CAB-SIM: The pedal outputs a line-level signal with an analog cabinet simulator. Connect to your mixer or DAW for direct guitar tones.

Equipped with a channel switching function


You can chain two pedals together with a standard 1/8” stereo cable through the CH-SW (channel switch) jack of each pedal. This allows you to turn one pedal on while bypassing the other, using the system as if you were switching between channels of a guitar amp. By using a split Y-configuration 1/8” stereo cable you can link three pedals.

OLED display provides visual confirmation of the sound


These pedals are equipped with a high-contrast OLED display showing an oscilloscope, a visual indication of how the waveform is affected by the knob settings.

Technical
What is the difference between Waza Craft Boss pedals and other Boss pedals of the same name?

Waza Craft pedals are completely redesigned by the original designers using the original circuits. Each pedal is optimized to its fullest potential.  You have the tried and true Boss sound that you have come to expect with some added custom features not available on the original models.

What is the difference between Overdrive and Distortion?

Overdrive is literally what you get when a tube is pushed beyond its voltage limits causing a clip in the top of the waveforms resulting in a slight warm, fat and sometimes, sizzly tone. Overdrive pedals recreate that tone. The harder you strum, the angrier it sounds, so to speak. Distortion basically adds more clipping stages than overdrive and therefore has a more distorted tone. The more clipping stages added the more distorted the tone is. There is less definition with distortion as there are more overtones created because of the hard clipping.
