The Alairex HALO guitar overdrive pedal gives you realistic tube amp overdrive - through any amp. There have been precious few solid state pedals that really nail the essence of tube amp overdrive. HALO does just that, bringing out elusive even-order harmonics - the desirable, sweet-sounding ones produced by real tubes - to give you satisfying amp-like overdrive that responds beautifully to your pick attack. HALO caresses your notes with a harmonious, aurally satisfying vibe that you won't want to be caught without. Experience how easy it is to nail your unique signature sound through any amp, with the Alairex HALO Overdrive Pedal.

  • HALO serves up even-order harmonic distortion (the good stuff)
  • HALO is sensitive to your touch
  • Nail your signature sound through any amp
HALO serves up even-order harmonic distortion (the good stuff)

The Alairex HALO overdrive pedal serves up even-order harmonic distortion - the kind you want. Hit a chord or note - as it sustains, HALO brings out the 2nd, 4th, and higher harmonics, juicing your sound with agreeable overtones. Hit a heavily saturated power chord - at first you'll hear just the fundamentals; as the notes sustain and bloom, HALO's ear-candy overtones start to reveal themselves - increasing mass and supplying a gorgeously harmonious, aurally pleasing sound. Once you play through HALO, you won't want to be without it - ever.

HALO is sensitive to your touch

Just like a thoroughbred tube amp, Alairex's HALO overdrive pedal is sensitive to your pick attack and guitar volume pot. You can elicit harder overdrive by leaning into notes or diming your guitar's volume knob. And Alairex has fitted HALO with many of the same controls you'll find on your finer tube amps, as well. HALO sports two channels (footswitchable, naturally), in addition to bass, contour, presence, saturation, and shape controls. It's like having an awesome-sounding tube amp that you can carry around in your gig bag.

Nail your signature sound through any amp

Keep the Alairex HALO overdrive pedal in your guitar gig bag and you'll always be ready to take the stage, wherever you are. Often times, you may find yourself having to play through whatever amp happens to be available - even a (gasp) solid state amp. With HALO, you can simply plug in, and start playing. It's truly awesome being able to take your signature "tube" guitar sound with you.

Alairex HALO Overdrive Pedal Features:
  • Juice your guitar tone with tasty tubular mojo
  • Imparts warm, rich, amp-like overdrive - thick and multi-dimensional
  • Brings out elusive even-order harmonics (the musical, "sweet" ones)
  • Touch-sensitive response to your pick attack
  • Easy to understand and use - with intuitive, flexible controls
Nail your signature sound through any amp, with the Alairex HALO Overdrive Pedal!
