EHX Tortion

DESCRIPTION

The EHX Tortion JFET Overdrives covers vast tonal real estate and redefines versatility. Like a database of great tone, the EHX TORTION’s full complement of features and controls make dialing in inspired guitar sound intuitive.

The JFET circuit is designed to sound and feel like the front end of a tube amplifer with a 3-band EQ and 4-way Pre-Gain to suit any style. The footswitchable Boost section adds a second set of Gain and Volume controls for a real twin channel preamp assault.

Whatever the era, from vintage to modern, your search for the ultimate tone has ended.

  • JFET overdrive for tube-like response and tone
  • Boost switch with independent Volume and Gain for two-channel flexibility
  • 4-way Pre-Gain selector, plus Treble, Middle and Bass for complete sound control
  • Use it as a preamp – balanced XLR output with cabinet emulation
  • Power adapter included
