The Valve Champ is a tube boost/tone enhancer based on the classic Valvecaster design. Previously released as the Bug Drive during a PCDH19 charity auction, the Valve Champ employs a JJ 12AU7 tube for authentic tube boost and character. The Valve Champ expands upon the Valvecaster by using a tilt EQ tone control and an additional JFET boost on the output. The center frequency for the tilt EQ is 300 Hz.


The pedal requires a DC power supply (not included). The DC supply should be a standard Boss style connector, center negative polarity. The pedal can accept 9 to 12 volts. Do not exceed 12 volts or the tube will be damaged. The current draw is 150 mA.


The Valve Champ has a true bypass switch.


Dimensions: 4.77" long x 2.6" wide
