Analog Man Prince of Tone overdrive


Analog Man Prince Of Tone overdrive

May 2016 - we won't have many available till June so if you are patient, best to wait till then, and try on a Wednesday, sorry about that!

We will be putting some in stock every now and then, on this page, when they are available. Usually on Wednesdays. If you are old enough, you can remember:

is PRINCE (of tone) spaghetti day : Old commercial on Youtube

The POT is the same as half of the King of Tone, with an external MODE switch standard. It is the same as the KOT with HIGHER GAIN option, so you can use the full range of the DRIVE knob and it has a little more drive at the top than a normal gain KOT. The DISTORTION mode is improved though, for a louder, stronger distortion sound. See for more info.

The TREBLE trimpot is inside, just like the KOT.

There are also two new DIP switches inside! They are a bit subtle at some knob settings and modes:

DIP1 : LO-MID lift switch. The tone from your lower strings will be enhanced a little.

DIP2: TURBO switch- with higher gain settings youíll hear deeper compression, especially in DIST mode. You will hear a brighter, crunchier sound with this on at higher DRIVE settings.

The three modes, as on the KOT, are:

1) Normal Overdrive mode (OD mode): This is the standard King Of Tone sound, - a touch drive available than a tube screamer. Can get much louder than a tube screamer.

2) CLEAN mode : This mode has less distortion, it can be used for clean boosts or clearer, louder sounds. It's sort of a cross between a true clean boost and an overdrive. CLEAN MODE is even less compressed and louder than the OD mode. I love this mode with high drive settings too!

3) DISTORTION mode : more drive than the standard mode- a touch of hard distortion. The sound is more compressed, yet retains the pedalís character. Same volume as OD mode.

At low DRIVE settings, or when playing softly, there is not much difference between the three modes, they all can get pretty clean and have the same level at low drive settings. The ability to clean up when playing softly is a very useful feature of this pedal. The Drive knob works like the KOT with HIGHER GAIN OPTION, so you can set it anywhere and get great tones.

We are making these by hand in China by the same people who are making our Analog Delay. Though it's made in China, we use the same parts as the King of Tone - best Japanese chip and capacitors, not cheap Chinese parts. No surface mount parts, everything is vintage style and hand wired for easy maintenance and repairs unlike most Chinese pedals and many USA machine-made pedals which are disposable if they have any problems like a pot or switch that wears out.

POWER SUPPLY: A Standard Boss PSA120 type 9V DC adaptor will work fine. Center is negative. The pedal uses only about 6mA of current at 9V. You can get a fuzzier sound if you want, at lower voltages, for example the SAG mode on the pedalpower2. When your battery dies you will notice the pedal will not get nice and clean, the sound will be hairier. Use a good Alkaline battery or a power supply for best results. You can use higher voltage for more headroom, 12V is common, 18V is very safe. Clean boost may be improved the most with higher voltage.

CHIPS: You can also try other standard dual op-amp chips in the Prince of Tone. Just make sure you put it in the right way, with the pin#1 dot on the side with the chip socket cut-out. The TS-808ís JRC4558D chip sounds good in this pedal, especially with single coil guitars and smaller Fender type amps. You can try a high fidelity chip for the CLEAN mode which may work well.


We made our own case for this pedal, it's lower and a little shorter than our Beano Boost / Orange Squeezer / large SunFace box, and a little bigger than the Astrotone / Peppermint / small Sunface size.
Size is 2.5" wide x 4.5" long x 1.5" tall, not including switch/knobs/jacks.

Buffer option

If you run through some long cables to your amp, or through some tone sucking pedals (volume pedals, etc) you might want to add the optional buffer inside the POT. If you run the POT into a pedal with a good buffer like our ARDX20, then it's not needed at all. There is no room for a battery with the Buffer option. It will work great at higher voltages like 12V or 18V also. See our BUFFER page for more info.

Best overdrive/boost pedal I have ever played March 5, 2016
Reviewer: Sean Kebely from Bothell, WA United States  
I can't decide which mode I like best on the prince of tone, they all sound fantastic.  I like using the pedal in the boost setting as my clean tone.  I set the volume at unity than push the gain to give it just a little dirt.  The prince of tone has amazing dynamics, it cleans up really well with volume being rolled back and light string attack, but when you really attack the stings it comes to life.  Very happy to have this pedal on my board.

Prince of Tone February 25, 2016
Reviewer: Jeffrey Taylor from Rockford, MI United States  
I bought one of the first units back in 2012 and I've been a customer now for over 10 years.   The Prince of Tone has been on my board for 4 years now because of it's great tone and versatility; it's like having three pedals in one small footprint.   I actually use all three voice settings:  1. Overdrive: smooth, close to the vintage TS-808, 2. Boost: Clean boost, the most clear guitar tone, 3. Distortion: Something like a hybrid of #1 and #2, Overdrive, but a little cleaner than #1.     Analogman says "we do pedals right", actually they just do everything right.   I wish all businesses  were managed by good people like Mike, the world would be a better place.

Birth of a new Era!!!! February 14, 2016
Reviewer: Phil Nelson from Berwick, LA United States  
Mike you are a guitarist Godsend!!!!
Love this pedal. Even though I specialize in blues, old rock, and Swamp pop; this pedal does it all.
From the adjustable treble trim pot, to the dip switches, it is fully customizable.
I've definitely found the 9th wonder of the world, and it's the Prince of Tone baby!!
Keep up the musical innovations Mike.

Amazing little box January 21, 2016
Reviewer: Sean from Philadelphia, PA United States  
I've been playing around with the PoT for about a week now and I simply cannot settle on one setting. The versatility of this pedal cannot be underestimated.

The OD setting is much richer and harmonic than your standard tube screamer, even more so than mike's TS9 with the silver mod. The Boost setting has amazing pick attack response and the bite can be controlled nicely with the guitar's volume. The Distortion setting is where it gets dirty. Oozing with creamy distortion that doesn't muddy up any of the frequencies.

I am running a strat - PoT - TS9(silver) - CompROSSer - Twin reverb. Stacked with the TS9  this PoT sounds incredible at any setting. Highly recommend for those who love that tube screamer grit but need just a little more dirt. Keep up the good work Mike!

The Prince Of Tone! November 5, 2015
Reviewer: Joe Vaccarino from Rhinecliff, NY United States  
Firstly, the pedal is quiet and clear!!

Right out of the box I knew it was going to work for me.  This pedal is musical in it's nature. A singing quality that I have not been able to duplicate with other pedals.

The subltly of touch that it's capable of is perfect.  Being able to lay out and perceive a hint of what you have dialed in is just great.  Dig in, and it's all right there.  Driving the input a little makes your tone cry with sustain that doesn't seem possible without it.

I can't say enough about this pedal.  Every slight touch of a knob gives up more choices!
