Radial ToneBone Hot British Tube Distortion Pedal

The Radial ToneBone Hot British Tube Distortion Pedal combines a real 12AX7 tube with an ultra-low noise hybrid circuit. It is modelled after the mega-stack tones from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s to produce rich harmonics and deep powerful bass and is without a doubt the metal player’s delight.

The Radial ToneBone Hot British Tube Distortion Pedal is tube distortion at its best! Fashioned from a modified Marshall double-stack Plexi, the Radial ToneBone Hot British delivers five decades of brute power for everything from scooped-out chunky rhythm to screaming sizzling hot lead tones.

The design begins with a triple gain stage that combines the control and dynamics of solid-state with the warmth and harmonic generation only possible from a real 12AX7 tube. This unique design produces ultra-rich harmonic textures and full-on saturated tube settings without the mud or noise that is typical with other pedals. Even when played at blistering speeds, each note retains its distinctiveness and clarity, right down to the lowest note.

Switch on the Contour, dial in the passive-interactive EQ and wham! – you are now in a world where huge, musically rich tones that you never thought possible magically come alive. The carefully crafted controls are easily manipulated to create an incredible array of textures that range from old school Deep Purple and Tom Shultz's unique Boston sound to Queen's Brian May or right into the boldest Metallica. No other pedal delivers more - no other pedal even comes close!

The Radial Tonebone Hot British... Five generations of Marshall tone right at your feet. God Save the Queen!

Sounds good, but maybe overrated. January 12, 2010
Reviewer: The money you could be saving with GEICO from New York United States  
I owned a very early one of these before Radial bought them, in the original painted housing. Sounded great for THAT sound. But beware, it is not really true bypass - there is a cap and some resistors in the bypass circuit, and a measurable load on the input when bypassed. Also, the tube has no effect on the sound - it's all diode clipping. Also, mine failed intermittently and they could not fix it - but they were incredibly nice about it and never charged me. I scrapped it for parts. But, it sounded good and was very versatile.
