4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Preamp

The EBS Valve Drive DI pedal is a two-in-one unit, offering a tube preamp along with an overdrive effect. With the pedals Gain at modest setting, and the Volume cranked up, the Valve Drive DI will deliver a full host of full-bodied, warm and beefy tones with a nice presence of tube compression. Players can also use this pedal in the studio and for live performances, enhancing their versatility at all times.

Overdrive

As well as offering a warm tube preamp, the Valve Drive doubles up as an overdrive pedal, for that extra impact when needed. Simply turn up the Gain to achieve a nice overdrive tone, and choose between Vintage or Normal character. This versatile unit comes equipped with control options for Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass and Gain to easily dial in your perfect sound.

Its simple chassis includes two footswitches along with five control knobs, and a protective shield around the internal components.
