Catharsis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The big EHX!!"

Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes (Original)

An input, 2 outputs (with and without effect)

1 volume, 1 tone, 1 gain

1 tone switch that lets you enable or mute the tone. The pedal is not necessarily transparent it allows not color the sound when it is disabled. Personal I do not use it.

I do not know what year it is but it's old EHX therefore the case is huge (and indeed it is empty 90% ...), not practical for the pedalboard but I love it look!


Setup is simple, it is in the basic and effective.

We do not hassle to find sounds nice.


I am very picky when it comes saturations, I had dozens of pedal distortion / overdrive and I am very trendy vintage.
And this gem is just perfect for what I'm looking ...

The sound is really hot, the beach offered is quite extensive.

We go from clean to greasy fuzz (be careful not like Big Muff) or cutting through the overdrive lead.

Coupled with my Catalinbread Echorec I's solo Time Pink Floyd.

All knobs are responsive and provide good sound sculpting.

Perfect for me!


€ 100 bought it a few years ago (with a delay pedal and more), as saying that I made a good deal ...

This is a very rare and truly exceptional pedal.

I love the current EHX effects, but we must admit that the pedals times are over (I had a vintage Deluxe Memory Man I'm the conn ** ie to sell ...).

This is my legendary ...

RawDeltaBlues's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" In your face baby!"

Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes (Original)
This is a pedal distortion / overdrive, gain, tone, volume, switch, base ...
Mine not plugged on direct 220V!


All mentioned above. Like today my T-Rex, we can gain the volume and get all the shades from clear sound boosted with a fuzz in English (which throws up the treble).


For punk or HxC, treble howl, but the bass is pressing draft, it's heavy, it's bold, it's perfect. For the rest, tastes and colors ...


So although I stole it and it gave place to a gang war! (True Story) HARDCORE THE LIFE DEATH!! Finally, the past 30 years we reconsider things :)
I do not put 10 because it is certainly not very versatile, mine was much more breath and a land problem. I found it in parts, I repaired as I have, I may be unknowingly improved (or not ...)
I had the Big Muff 80s too, is different but the hot tubes for me far above in quality and originality ...
