At Vntage Tone we believe that distortion should have character, body, constant dynamics, aggressiveness and sharpness when needed.
With this premise we designed our Black Vertigo – a sort of Marshall roar in a small package. Plug into it and let your ears, and those of your neighbors, live is ecstasy.
After years of searching, experimentation and countless tests of the best Overdrive sounds, we came to the conclusion that our PROMETHEUS (Who defied the Gods and with fire gave warmth, enlightenment & creation tools to musicians) and our VT 4558 SCREAMER (a classic with its rounded, crystalline & explosive tones) are the best sum towards the Eden of tone creation. Individually each has its character & personality which gives them an unmistakable sound, but now PROMETHEUS comes to us with subtle additions that can help you shape its DNA and create new tonal contours. COMBINE and shape them and you will no longer be bound to just imagining the sounds you hear in your head, now all you have to do it BIFURCATE.

The Alchemy of Tone is located in our V.T. 4558 Screamer.
From warm tones with little saturation to harmonize those subtle passages, through that crunch so characteristic of blues or British, to reach saturation to highlight those epic solos full of feeling and energy.
