A Triple Threat of Tone

Add a trio of tone-sculpting tools to your pedalboard with the Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo. The Tone Tattoo is Electro-Harmonix's first multi-effects pedal - they shoe-horned in three of their most popular pedals into one compact unit. You get the heavy distortion of the Metal Muff, the fat chorus of the Neo Clone, and the warm analog delay of the Memory Toy in a single, gig-ready pedal. Each effect has its own footswitch and controls. Pick up a great-sounding and useful all-analog multi-effects box with the Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo.

Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo Multi-effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • Heavy distortion sends your amp over the edge
  • Classic analog chorus provides thick swirling tones
  • Pump up your solo with huge delay
Heavy distortion sends your amp over the edge

The Metal Muff component of the Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo gives you huge metal-flavored distortion that will rock any gig. A 2-band EQ lets you dial in perfected distortion tones, while the 3-way Scoop switch lets you dig out the midrange for seriously heavy sounds. Combined, these EQ controls let you create killer distortion tones from bratty to seriously scooped. The Tone Tattoo also has a defeatable noise gate with a Threshold control to tame your high-gain hiss.

Classic analog chorus provides thick swirling tones

Electro-Harmonix packs the classic Neo Clone analog chorus pedal into the compact Tone Tattoo. Go from slow, shallow, subtle chorus sweeps to thick, watery vibes. It's easy, thanks to the Depth switch and the Rate knob. You can instantly tweak the chorus sounds you want - even mid-song. When mixed with the other effects in the Tone Tattoo, you can create larger-than-life tones.

Pump up your solo with huge delay

The Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo includes a classic analog delay based off of their popular Memory Toy delay pedal. Stomp onto the Memory Toy section and you have access to up to 550ms of delay time - plenty for thickening up your solos. And a Blend control lets you choose how much delay you want going into your final signal. With all of the effects and functionality built into the Tone Tattoo, it could possibly be considered a desert island pedal.

Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo Multi-effects Pedal Features:
  • 3 separate effects in a single pedal
  • Each effect has its own on/off switch
  • Metal Muff section gives you massive distortion and a noise gate
  • Huge analog chorus sounds from the Neo Clone section
  • Dial in perfect delays with the built-in Memory Toy
The triple-threat Electro-Harmonix Tone Tattoo pedal gives you everything you need to sound great at a gig!

It's super effective

Great at doing what it's made for. Straight forward, easy to dial in, low cost. Works great for my bass solos.

Freaking Awesome!

The Tone Tattoo is just another incredible product from electro-harmonix. I have almost filled my pedalboard with electro-harmonix pedals as they have proven themselves to be top of the line, very rugged and the sounds are in my opinion fantastic! having three pedals in one is a real plus, my last pedal was the Epitone which I thought could not get any better but I was wrong because the sounds that I get from the Tone tattoo are even better, my favorite being the Metal muff. There are way to many combinations to go over here but this is a great pedal that is very easy to use and compliments my others perfectly. Highly recommend this and all of their products.

Everything You Need as a Guitarist!

This multi- effects pedal is a steal for the price. You get killer distortion, good chorus, good analog delay and a noise gate. If you never used a noise gate, you will really appreciate it. Even with humbuckers, when you stop playing there is slight noise or hum. The noise gate gives you complete silence between pauses in play. You can dial in any rock or metal sound you are going for. If you want heavy thrash distortion this is definitely for you. Buy it from Sweetwater. They Rock!

It isn't perfect, but it is a solid choice for beginners

The Tone Tattoo isn't without flaws, but it is a solid 3-in-1 pedal for beginners. It is a simple pedal, which I think is both a positive and a negative. The Neo Clone chorus works as expected, but mine always pops the first time I turn it on. Maybe that's just my unit though. This effect is by far the easiest to tweak: one knob, plus a depth toggle for a more intense effect. It is simple, but effective. The Metal Muff gets you decent high-gain tones, but after using it a lot, I'd prefer more tweakability: instead of selecting a mid-scoop level, I'd prefer a mids knob to accompany the treble and bass knobs so I could dial in just the right amount of mids, which are all too important to gloss over, especially for metal. Also, the noise gate is a nice feature, but I wish there was more to it than one knob; it tends to cut your notes off that are trying to sustain unless you introduce more noise into the signal with a compressor and/or overdrive. The Memory Boy delay is also a great delay for beginners; it offers the sounds you'd expect from a good delay, but it lacks frills that other pedals may offer. The gain knob here is a weird choice, because while it does add a boost to your signal, it does color it slightly, more like an overdrive than a boost. I usually keep it off or almost off. Speaking of color, the delay tends to do that as your notes die; I've noticed they get a little...hazy and darker as they repeat. This isn't a huge deal, but it doesn't mimic a super-clean Glimour-esque echo very well. All in all, this is a solid pedal for the price, but as your develop your sound, you may desire more control. Electro-Harmonix's other multi-pedals have some of these features. The Epitome, Soul POG, and Turnip Greens all have effects loop sends and returns, and the ability to modify the order of effects. Now I know this pedal may not benefit from those options, but it goes to show how other pedals may give you more versatility.
