TORNADO Fx is a new brand line from One Control, under the full supervision of Mr. TK. With this new brand, we bring a new sound tested and approved by the great Björn Juhl of BJF (Sweden) and the production of One Control (Japan).
Mr. TK seeks an effects pedal that can create the ideal sounds in guitarist’s heads. One Control already possesses a great deal of experience in bringing to life the incredible sound designs from BJF and BJFe series pedals. However, these new designs and concept are different, so we launched this new line called TORNADO Fx to pursue the ideal sounds that TK is looking for.
TORNADO Drive Brass:
The TORNADO Drive Brass is an overdrive pedal completed under the supervision of Mr. TK after exchanging various ideas and opinions. It is the pinnacle of overdrive as an effects pedal, and a pedal to create the sound that TK wants. It is very similar to the TORNADO Drive Aluminum, but with some special differences.
The first prototypes were used for several years in TK’s live performances, and adjustments were made with both BJF and TK based on the sound and feel of the pedal onstage. The first TORNADO Drive Brass, which has been improved, was incorporated into the pedalboard of the DEAD IS ALIVE TOUR 2022 – Tornado and Extend Life tour.
The TORNADO Drive Brass is an overdrive pedal tailored to the equipment TK uses and his desired tone. The enclosure is cut from solid brass and features two trim pots which can fine-tune the differences in acoustic characteristics depending on the gig, whether at the venue, a recording studio, or the practice room. The thick tone is three-dimensional and can go from a whisper to a scream with just the playing dynamics. We have carefully refined these seemingly contradictory characteristics, creating a superb overdrive that was born from BJF’s tonal sensibilities and TK’s commitment to tone.
High gain with clarity can easily be heard when playing complex chords, with long sustain and high performance. Special filtering by BJF has contributed to achieve a most beautiful sound. From stadium-level playing to playing in your own room, you can get the best sound at any volume.
TORNADO Drive Brass is the top-of-the-line overdrive, made with luxury housing and components to be exactly the tone and feel that TK demands. It is a next-level overdrive pedal for the guitarists of today seeking the most superb tone possible.
