The Vertex T-Drive is a sonic recreation of the legendary Trainwreck Express amplifier. Rooted in the tradition of British amps from the 60's & 70's, Trainwrecks are famous for their fast pick response and their exceptional dynamics from chimey "Vox" style cleans, to a soaring "Plexi" overdrive. To most accurately recreate the harmonic complexity of the Trainwreck amps in a stompbox, Vertex took painstaking measures to find a "real deal" Trainwreck Express to compare for sonic accuracy & consulted longtime Trainwreck user Glen Kuykendall for guidance, providing them with recordings & feedback A/B-ing his Trainwreck against the T-Drive prototype. This quest to create the most accurate "Wreck-in-a-box" has resulted in the T-Drive, a pedal with the dynamics, harmonic complexity, and "voice-like" overtones reminiscent of the amp it was inspired by.
