Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano
With the price of vintage HOT TUBES soaring, countless guitarists have requested that we re-issue the Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano. We’ve done this using the exact same design and miniaturized it, too!
Volume and Overdrive let you go from a gentle rasp that caresses your notes to a full-blown gain monster with a powerhouse punch. Sculpt your sound with the Tone control, or take a detour around the tone circuit with the Tone On/Off switch. True bypass for a pristine signal chain.
The Electro Harmonix Hot Tubes Nano is a re-creation of the original Hot Tubes from the late-1970’s. As the original has gained cult status from use by Sonic Youth and others it has slowly escalated in price on the used market. Seeing the demand for the original unit, EHX developed the Hot Tubes Nano using the same CMOS circuit as the original.
Fuzzy is the best way to describe the tone of the Hot Tubes. It sounds like speaker break up or like a small amp being pushed just beyond the breaking point. It’s an overused term, but the Hot Tubes really does sound “tweedy.”
