Harmonic Amp-like Overdrive in a Compact Pedal

Expressive, touch sensitive, high-gain tone is yours with the Alairex HALO Jr. overdrive pedal. It's based on the original HALO pedal, and it basically takes the high-gain channel of that pedal and packs it in a smaller format. Guitarists at Sweetwater immediately noticed the amp-like feel and response, a feat for any solid state pedal. The HALO Jr. overdrive gives you ample tone shaping capabilities, including a contour switch that lets you create everything from mid-rich leads to scooped metal tones. If you only want one overdrive pedal on your pedalboard, you'll be well-served with the Alairex HALO Jr.

Alairex HALO Jr. Overdrive Pedal at a Glance:
  • Three modes let you cover a lot of tonal territory
  • Even-order harmonics create rich and musical distortion
  • HALO Jr. is sensitive to your touch
Three modes let you cover a lot of tonal territory

You've actually got two different flavors of overdrive in the HALO Jr., plus a clean boost mode to boot. Flip the shape switch to the right, and HALO Jr. generates a brighter overdrive with a bit of compression. The left position gives you a darker distortion with enhanced harmonics and more compression. These modes are also perfect for adding bite to guitars with humbucking pickups or for smoothing out guitars with single-coils, respectively. With the switch in the center you'll have a clean boost with up to 17dB of gain on tap, perfect for sending your tube amplifier into its own overdrive territory.

Even-order harmonics create rich and musical distortion

The Alairex HALO Jr. overdrive pedal serves up even-order harmonic distortion - the kind your ears like. Hit a chord or note and as it sustains, HALO Jr. brings out the 2nd, 4th, and higher harmonics, spicing up your sound with agreeable overtones. Hit a heavily saturated power chord - at first you'll hear just the fundamentals, but as the notes sustain and bloom, HALO Jr.'s overtones start to reveal themselves.

HALO Jr. is sensitive to your touch

Just like a tube amp, the HALO Jr. overdrive pedal is sensitive to your pick attack and guitar volume pot. You can elicit harder overdrive by digging into notes or diming your guitar's volume knob. And we can't understate how responsive the feel is too. Any guitarist at Sweetwater knows that how your pedals and amp respond to your playing will dictate how you play to a certain extent. More response from your rig makes for more expressive playing, and that's what you get with the HALO Jr.

Alairex HALO Jr. Overdrive Pedal Features:
  • Overdrive pedal with two distortion types and a clean boost mode
  • Imparts warm, rich, amp-like overdrive that cleans up when you turn down your guitar's volume knob
  • Brings out elusive even-order harmonics for very musical tone
  • Touch-sensitive response to your pick attack
  • Easy to dial in with intuitive, flexible controls
For Harmonic Amp-like Overdrive, grab the Alairex HALO Jr.!
