The new `single channel` AC-Tone, is a smaller pedal-board friendly, single channel version of the original Pro-Series AC-Tone. It features 3 knobs and 1 switch and has a slightly beefed up Gain section, but shares the very same tone as its big sister!

The single AC-Tone also incorporates our new DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered AC-Tone. This allows us to use the same high quality components which provide the same tone and headroom that make the Carl Martin Pro-Series pedals stand out from the rest!

The Level knob adjusts the overall level of the AC-Tone. By adjusting this knob (in conjunction with the gain) you can match or exceed the bypass signal for rhythm or solo work.

The Drive knob adjusts the amount of overdrive, from light crunch; at full counter-clockwise, to full, overdrive with loads of sustain at full clockwise…. and everything in between. Regardless of the amount of overdrive, the AC-Tone always produces those great Brittish tones that seem to cut right through the mix in both live and recording sessions.

The Tone knob on the AC-Tone, is a high cut filter. With the knob set at full clockwise, you enjoy the full bandwidth of frequencies, so as you turn the knob counter clockwise, you start to filter out the high frequencies. This allows you to fine tune your tone regardless of which guitar/pickup you are using. You might find at high gain settings that reducing the highs will tighten up the sound, and at lower gain settings, the high frequencies will add some bite and crispness to your notes.

Carl Martin's Bypass switch button; which switches the AC-Tone on or off, is active buffered output so you don’t lose any signal in long cables a cross stage!
