The Tripledrive Supreme® (TDS®) offers plenty of beautiful, warm headroom for undistorted country, jazz, or chiming pop. If you play large venues, the Tripledrive Supreme® will give you all the clean headroom you could ever need and a wide range of sonic choices. If you seek a vehicle for your American-rock tone excursions, this might just be your Rolls-Royce.

Based on the highly successful Overdrive Supreme® SLX (favorably reviewed in the February Guitar Player Magazine), the Tripledrive Supreme® features three foot switchable channels of clean, mean and scream. Available in 50, 100 and 150 watt versions, the TDS® features a dedicated chime filled "California Clean Channel" with brite, deep, and rock/jazz switches, as well as mid and gain boosts. Its second and third channels are based on our successful Overdrive Supreme® clean and mean channels. The amp is controlled by a 6-way footswitch (included), which provides channel switching, as well as independent control of mid and gain boosts for both channels. An extra (separate) footswitch jack for the reverb is also available, as is the artist footswitch option.

The amp features 4, 8 and 16 ohm outputs, a full-time all-tube buffered effects loop with series or parallel operation.

Like the Overdrive Supreme®, the loop features separate send and return level controls, a series/parallel switch and a trim control to permit line or pedal level device interface. The loop inputs and outputs are "live" whether the loop is terminated or not. This means the send output may be used as a line out, and the return input may be used as a spare line level input for a keyboard, drum machine, or other signal input, at any time. The reverb features a spacious Accutronics long decay 6-spring reverb driven by a push-pull current drive amp and an ultra low noise return amp using bi-fet op-amp technology. Fully adjustable input and output levels. Like the ODS®, the Tripledrive Supreme® features fan cooling, an aircraft grade T-6 aluminum chassis, individual tube bias adjusts and regulated B+ and DC preamp tube filaments for lowest noise and consistent performance despite line noise or variations.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
