The Volta 1987 pedal offers a distinctive, sweaty “pure rock style” sound thanks to two dynamic channels and well-thought-out controls. It is a well-conceived homage to the British saturation that characterized rock history at the turn of the 1970s and 1980s.
Volta Custom products, entirely handcrafted in Italy, are the result of careful technical research and sound work, with the main goal of being a source of inspiration and emotion for musicians.
The Volta 1987 is a practical and compact guitar pedal, measuring 12 cm in width, 9.5 cm in height and 5.3 cm in depth. Entirely handmade, it is designed and crafted to achieve a typical British Rock sound and saturation.
The Volta 1987 is inspired by the classic British Marshall JTM45 and 1959 Super Lead amplifiers, seeking, as Volta Custom itself states, the true essence of “rough and sweaty” Rock. The pedal has two channels, “ON” and “ELEVEN”, both distinctly dynamic and capable of delivering a versatile and clean saturation easily manageable by touch on the strings and by different volume settings on the guitar. The DRIVE control adjusts the amount of saturation, while the TIGHT control sets the grain and definition of the sound. TONE and 3-position MID, offer an even wider range of sounds to suit personal tastes, timbre choices and the behavior of the amps used. “LEVEL” and “ELEVEN” controls allow you to adjust the volume of the two channels independently, so you always have everything under control.
In conclusion, the Volta 1987, thanks to its rigorous handmade construction, the versatility and dynamism of its sounds, and the independent management of the volumes of the two channels, is a pedal that immediately makes anyone who loves the “growl” of the Hi-Gain Marshall of the 80s feel at home.
