Get More Tonal Variety from This Touch-sensitive Overdrive

Based on a classic, the Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano overdrive pedal gives your guitar tone an edge. It's designed just like the original CMOS Hot Tubes pedal from the 1970's, and it's incredibly responsive to your playing dynamics. As you dig into your playing harder, the Hot Tubes Nano responds with aggression. Back off your volume control and it cleans up nicely, just like you'd expect from a tube amplifier. And if you're touchy about your tone (aren't we all?), there's even a tone circuit bypass switch that completely removes the tone circuit from your signal path. All this in a rugged die-cast chassis makes the Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano a sweet overdrive solution.

Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano Overdrive Pedal Features at a Glance:
  • Overdrive pedal for electric guitar based on 1970's CMOS Hot Tubes pedal

  • Tone On/Off lets you bypass the tone circuit for an uncolored signal path

SWEET little pedal...


A thing of beauty. Smoothest, best sounding transition between clean and breakup in any pedal I've ever heard. I mostly use it to add warmth and a bit of fuzzyness to a fairly clean Vox ac15 - especially lovely with lower output single coils. Very responsive to finger or pick pressure. Gobs more warmth and depth compared to most overdrives; I set my amp a bit more to the treble side and it sounds great. High gain settings can be flubby in the low end, but stacked with another overdrive or into a distorting tube amp it gives you huge warm, raging, compressing distortion.

Electro Harmonix hot tubes

overdrive / fuzz pedal with big sound, breaks up nice and cleans up with rollback of volume knob on guitar. Goes from a light almost clean overdrive to a heavy Tommy Iommi /Black Sabbath distortion.pedal is very responsive to your picking and play style definitely a must on the pedal board and with the switchable tone bypass there are many tonal possibilities. This pedal will surely not dissappoint

Placed before my amp or in my pedal board, this baby rocks! I get that bite I love in both clean and crunch channels.

Awesome, better than boutique OD's

It's under 60 bucks and has a tonal range that beats more expensive boutique brands. Personally, this is not my one and only go to OD pedal, but some of the sounds you can get out of this thing can't be found on other pedals.. at least that I've tried. I run this on my board after a plexi-clone that IS a boutique brand (which I love). The hot tubes can take already overdriven tones to next levels, or it can give you a really, really nice gritty OD on it's own. It's cheap too!
