Manufacturer's Description from Vertex

The T Drive is a sonic recreation of the legendary Trainwreck™ Express amplifier. Rooted in the tradition of British amps from the 60's & 70's Trainwrecks™ are famous for their fast pick response and their exceptional dynamics from chimey "Vox" style cleans, to a soaring "Plexi" overdrive. To most accurately recreate the harmonic complexity of the Trainwreck™ amps in a stompbox, we took painstaking measures find a "real deal" Trainwreck™ Express to compare for sonic accuracy & consulted longtime Trainwreck™ owners for guidance, providing us with recordings & feedback A/B-ing their Trainwrecks™ against our T Drive prototype. Our quest to create the the most accurate "Wreck-in-a-box" has result in the T Drive, a pedal with the dynamics, harmoic complexity, and "voice-like" overtones reminiscent of the amp it was inspired by.
