Custom Shop Variants

The Abduction Classic™ 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 two completely different gain circuits, each with dual foot-switchable gain controls, the sonic possibilities are almost endless. The Abduction Classic™ has two different sets of old-stock Germanium diodes at it’s core that add a depth and color not available from most overdrives. So now you must ask yourself, are you ready for an out-of-this-world Abduction Classic™?

Tortuga Classic Series Pedals feature simplified graphics along with straightforward control names and of course are hand-built in-house by me just like their Custom Shop counterparts.
