Vox tone cut circuit in a pedal?

So I've been expanding my pedal collection lately, and after playing an AC30 at Guitar Center today I've really fallen in love with the idea of their tone cut circuit. However, I like the way my HT-5 sounds, so I'm looking for this same circuit in a pedal.

Here's the catch: I know that EQ pedals exist, but I don't want one. I want the one knob operation of the Vox tone cut circuit just in a pedal, mostly to make my Strat sound darker in the bridge position. Anybody know of something like this?

well, I have no experience, but people speak well of the Joyo AC-Tone. Maybe if set properly it recreates the kind of Voxiness you're looking for...

Sorry I haven't responded to this yet. Thanks, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. I don't necessarily want the Vox sound. Just the tone cut circuit. Does that make sense?

It's just a simple tone cut. A pot bleeding off treble. You've got one built into your guitar.

hi gopats - thanks for both your posts and for bearing with my grumpiness.

I bow to SBN's superior knowledge...

I was looking at this

Voxiness: what makes the Vox AC30 sound that way? Steve's Amps

which gets to the 'tone cut' point in the paragraph 'which bring us to the stage after the preamp...'

and I can see how that matches SBN's point. If you're not really looking for Voxiness per se, then all you're asking for is some treble roll-off. Maybe a parametric pedal would allow you to roll off as much as you want, starting at the frequency you want. If you've got access to a mixing desk with parametric eqs you could use a channel as a tone-pedal just to see if that approach works for you, and then get some kind of parametric pedal. I just looked at eBay and was amazed at how many different types there are.

You also may have some luck with something like the fulltone fat boost. You can push the signal with the preamp then boost the treble or bass as you like.
