This limited edition Steel String Clean Drive (Slight Return Version) faithfully recreates the tonality and feel of the iconic Dumble Steel String Singer amplifier in a stompbox. Designed alongside a real Steel String Singer (#001), this 100% analog tone tool will do it all from Overdrive, to Fat Boost, to Compression, to EQ shaping and more. Get the unmistakable Crystal-Clear Overdrive and Fat Clean Tones from albums like Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Texas Flood".
I have used the Steel String (SS) and the Ultra Phoenix (UP) in series for a while and truly enjoy it a lot. The SS is more useful than I had imagined making the sound bigger and adding punch to the Blues Junior LE (BJ) I use for the most nowadays. It’s easy to get a nice break up. And when I kick in the UP I get a beautiful overdriven tone impossible to get in the BJ as it is. Well done, Vertex! Now I look forward to testing the Boost pedal I have ordered.

I really dig the Steel String, it adds so much life to the tone. No need to turn the Super Reverb up to 6 to get the sweet sounds. The Filter knob really lets you dial in the mids. Ultraphonix might be the next purchase. Dumble tones for days.Dec/17/2018
I'm really digging this pedal. Vertex did this one right!Aug/11/2018
This is my new "always on" pedal. It just seems to sweeten my overall sound emphasizing just the right frequencies. You won't be disappointed!Jul/23/2018

The tonal variations are great and the parameters easily adjustable. I've used a few different guitars (strat, schecter, wechter) and found the unit to be useful and distinctive.Jun/23/2018
