The new British Tanks Collection from Audiority contains software emulations of four very popular vintage Marshall drive pedals. Need some gain for your DAW? Just add the Driver, Bluesman, Shredder, and Overseer for some extra dirt!
Audiority British Tanks Collection
The new Audiority British Tanks Collection is based around four vintage Marshall overdrive pedals that you can add to your DAW setup.
First up is the Shredder, based on the Marshall Shredmaster overdrive stompbox which was introduced in the 90s and provides high-gain distortion similar to a tube amplifier.
Next you have the Driver which is based on a Marshall Drivemaster overdrive, also released in the 90s. The pedal was itself based on the drive tone of the Marshall JCM800 amp. The Bluesman is inspired by the Marshall BluesBreaker pedal and gives you low gain overdrive tones. The BluesBreaker replicated the tone of the 1962 Blues Breaker amp.
The ’80s Classic
Finally, you have the Overseer which is based on a Marshall Guv’nor overdrive stompbox. This is the earliest of the four pedal emulations in this bundle, the original being released back in the 80s. It was meant to emulate the drive tones of both the Plexi and JCM800 amps.
Formats and Introductory Pricing
You can get the British Tanks Collection for Windows and Mac in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats. I own most of the original pedals and am curious to see how they would compare to these software emulations. And at the introductory price, it could well be worth a punt.
Currently, the whole collection is on sale for 44 EUR (normally 80 EUR), while the individual plugins are 25% off for a limited time, priced just 15 EUR each until 9 August 2021.
