Electro-Harmonix has reissued its CMOS Hot Tubes Overdrive pedal. Originally released in 1978, the EHX Hot Tubes was designed to replicate the organic overdrive of a vintage tube amp. The reissue Hot Tubes is a faithful re-creation of the original design, but presented in a compact, nano-sized chassis.
The mechanics behind basic delay are simple: Play a note or chord into an audio-storage medium, then get that device to play that sound back to you — either once or multiple times — after whatever amount of time makes you happy. Of course, people have improved upon this simple formula, taking delay to new depths and heights, and often including an infinite assortment of types and combinations in one pedal.
From the overdriven sounds of Jimmy Page and Tony Iommi to the out-of-this-world prog tones of David Gilmour and Alex Lifeson, the Seventies were pivotal in creating some of the guitar sounds that are still being ripped of today's class of rock guitarists. Whether you're putting together the ultimate Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin tribute band or just trying to add a bit of vintage flare to your modern-rock masterpiece, the pedals on this list are sure to help you recapture some of that groovy Seventies magic.
You don't have to be surf-rock legend Dick Dale to appreciate a touch of reverb on your guitar's signal. Even a smattering of reverb adds character and generally makes things sound warmer, friendlier and twangier, all while fooling your poor brain into thinking you're rocking out in a fan-packed stadium.
