Description

Presenting the all new Vertex Steel String Supreme Preamp and Drive Pedal. When it comes to Mayer-style compressed clean and lead tones, the new Vertex Effects Steel String Supreme, based on serial #001 of a legendary six-figure tube amp, may be the only tone shaper you'll need in your arsenal. Whether you're front-ending a stage amp with the SSS's expanded all-analog preamp, feeding a little Texas sugar into your modeling device, or even running straight into a cab IR, this pedal is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Just like the amp it's named after, the Vertex Steel String Supreme is characterized by a fat, clean, compressed sound that absolutely marinates signals in tubelike harmonics as you ramp up the gain. The Supreme's active EQ and Bright/Deep + Rock/Jazz switches add new tone-shaping capabilities to this latest addition to the Steel String family. From subtle fattening and clean compression to full-on overdrive, the Vertex Effects Steel String Supreme is the next best thing to having a real-deal SSS in your rig. Players like SRV, Eric Johnson, and John Mayer have all sung the praises of a rare 100-watt 6L6 blues machine that achieved legendary status in the mid-1980s. And whether its a sip of that Texas tonal flood or a return to gravity you're searching for, the Vertex Steel String Supreme — successor to the Steel String MkII and packing 500% more tone-shaping potential — faithfully captures that "SSS" (that's "Sparkle, Squish, and Saturation") magic in a pedalboard-friendly stomp. With gain settings below 1:00, the Steel String Supreme makes a highly versatile fat boost, with an active EQ section to dial in that D-style midrange shaping your instrument demands. Above 1:00, the Steel String Supreme sweetens your signal with vine-ripened drive characteristics matured in the California sun. Wide open, this pedal packs enough juicy gain to take you well into overdrive territory. All the while, true bypass operation preserves your dry signal whenever you don't have the Steel String Supreme engaged — though, if you're anything like Sweetwater guitarists, it's pretty much a nonissue, since you'll never want to turn this thing off. The Vertex Effects Steel String Supreme is assembled in California and comes in a rugged metal housing with authentic D-style labels.
