DP Durple by Tone City (pedal review – demo – showcase)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a new guitar overdrive pedal from Tone City – DP Durple! So it is not a signature pedal but it’s collaboratively designed by Tone City and “Danish Pete” from Andertons. The DP Durple is based on Tone City Mandragora OD but modified to suit Danish Pete’s tonal taste.

So the Tone City Mandragora is based on the Kalamazoo Love Drive and the DP Durple is as said based on the Mandragora, with some modifications. The Mandragora’s ‘Pre’ (presence) has been replaced by a ‘Mid’ control that let’s you cut or boost the amount of mid-range. The ‘Tone’ control has been adjusted to be less bright, offering a more moderate amount of treble so it’s not too shrill at the higher settings.

Otherwise it’s a small but sturdy analogue pedal; metal casing and true bypass. The dimensions are 4.2 x 5.2 x 9.3 cm and it needs a 9VDC power supply, no battery compartment. The controls are gain, volume, mid and tone.
