If someone were to open a mad-scientist hall of fame, Electro-Harmonix founder and president Mike Matthews would certainly be worthy of becoming one of its first inductees.
The stomp-box world’s equivalent of Thomas Edison, Matthews and his team of prolific inventors over the years have created hundred upon hundreds of wacky and wonderful devices that make every guitarist’s life more exciting and fulfilling.
Today, the Electro-Harmonix catalog offers a staggering number of pedals—more than 100—and the lineup keeps getting bigger and better. For this review, we looked at three of the company’s new—and incredibly affordable—distortion/overdrive pedals that recently made their debut: the Hot Tubes Overdrive, the Nano Big Muff π and the Soul Food.
Together, they deliver a rainbow of tones and textures. Individually, each will likely meet your needs no matter what type of dirt you dig. No matter what variety of distortion you need or prefer, this power trio pretty much has all of the bases covered.
