Free the Tone Unveils the DVL-1H Volume Pedal
Japan’s Free The Tone has announced the Direct Volume DVL-1H. The volume pedal features a unique full-rotation belt-drive system for a smooth feel.
“It adopts a gear and belt mechanism to drive the variable resistor linearly and link pedal operation directly to volume change,” the company writes. “Volume is controlled smoothly and musically with smooth rotation and an optimized volume curve. The Full-Rotation Belt-Drive system in the DVL-1H has been carefully designed so that the variable resistor fully rotates from its minimum to maximum positions.”
The Free the Tone Direct Volume DVL-1H will be launched on January 20th, 2020 and will carry a suggested retail price of $360.
