Created between 1998-2000, the Distortion Booster was the successor to the Vox Tone Bender. Not quite a fuzz pedal, but definitely capable of 'classic' higher gain tones. With the drive knob lower than 12 o'clock, it sounds great as a mild overdrive. This pedal is in great cosmetic condition, with minor scuffing on the outside of the pedal. You can power the V830 with either a 9 volt battery, or standard 9 volt power supply.
