The "Galea" is a medium-gain overdrive pedal. It resempes a full-blown vintage tube amp which has a bold, rich, and pure riven tone. The driven tone was influenced but the legendary late 50's Fender Tweed Deluxe (5E3 Circuit) and the Tone-Master from the 90's build by the Fender Custom Shop and more.... Much more than a mere vintage tube amp.
