Great pedal, a little pricey

By 

from dallas, tx

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes:

i have owned this pedal for about a year and love it. i have a pro-co rat, a big muff and a tubescreamer. it took me a while to really like it, lots of tweeking... but now i never use any of the other distortions, or fuzzes. it's this, a guyatone mc-3 chorus in front and a crybaby used like a phaser on solos bringing up the rear through an old gibson tube amp.

The best Ive ever had

By 

from Brazil

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes:

This simple pedal has a perfect sound, with your two 12AX7 vacuum tubes, it makes the best overdrive quality Ive ever heard, easy to execute your hammers and pull offs quickly, has a very good sustain, harmonics and perfect bright sound.

So Smooth! So Hot! So Tubey!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes:

The best distortion pedal ever made!I am a die-hard tube tone lover and I love this pedal. It is quite clean for an overdrive pedal. It is very smooth with the drive cranked or not cranked. It sounds great with a Marshall or a Fender style tube amp...Especially with a Fender. Crank the amp, and the crunch of the amp with the drive of the pedal come together and mke the best sound ever.I really recommend this for a tube and tone freak.

Hot tubes not so hot

By 

from wisconsin

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes:

Don't waste your money, the tone & sound is not very good. I use a hot plate with my fender deville and that sounds better cranked. I would not recommend the hot tubes...It muddys up the tone & sound. I'm gonna trade it in on something.

HOT TUBES TOO HOT

By 

from kansas city, MO

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes:

in playing this innovative pedal i realized one thing, hot tubes is too hot. the pedal has virtually 3 volume knobs: gain, overdrive and master(not to mention the other knobs). i played the pedal with the master totally off and once i barely tweaked it i unexpectedly received an instant earache. however, you can actually get this baby to sing anywhere from overdrive to the infamous big muff. it also has good stustain. obviously it does not run on 9v, but a 12v AC adapter. if you like ridiculously loud music and don't care if you melt your input jack, then get the pedal. if you're looking for great tone, sustain and versatility and don't mind tweaking for a long time to get it just right, then i suggest it also. for anyone else, don't bother.
