Abduction Videos

The Abduction™ may be the single greatest thing to happen to your sound. It was designed to blend beautifully with your tube amp to add richness and gain without sacrificing your original tone. With three completely different gain circuits, each with dual foot-switchable gain controls, the sonic possibilities are almost endless. The Abduction™ has two different sets of old-stock Germanium diodes at it’s core that add a depth and color not available from most overdrives. Also, with the addition of an internal ‘Kill’ voicing trim pot, you can truly customize your tone. So now you must ask yourself, are you ready for an out-of-this-world Abduction™?

All Tortuga Custom Shop pedals can be special ordered with custom graphics at no up-charge. If you have an idea for a custom look, just let me know.
