With the price of vintage HOT TUBES soaring, countless guitarists have requested that we re-issue our 1970s CMOS HOT TUBES. 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.

Reviewer Chris Gill said: “Once again, the Lord of Long Island City has delivered the goods with three outrageously affordable stomp boxes that collectively cover just about every color of overdrive, distortion and fuzz a guitarist needs.”

Electro-Harmonix covers the world in fuzz with three new overdrive/distortion pedals. The Hot Tubes is an exact re-creation of the CMOS classic rarity, circa 1978. The East River Drive delivers definitive JRC4558-style overdrive. The MOSFET-based OD Glove possesses an organic tone and feel that, according to Mike Matthews, “is unlike anything we offer and great!”
The new HOT TUBES is an authentic re-creation of our original 1978 CMOS overdrive. The HOT TUBES' unique design makes it superbly sensitive to every nuance of your pick attack and your guitar's volume settings. Volume and Overdrive controls let you go from a gentle rasp that caresses your notes to a full-blown tube-like growl. HOT TUBES delivers great sound at an eye popping price!
This pedal was conceived of and designed by EHX from globally sourced components. Every EHX pedal goes through a stringent testing process by musicians and technicians in NYC before packing.

Mike Matthews stated: “The image on our Flashback Poster is of the original artwork that inspired the famous Electro-Harmonix logo. I think players who dig our pedals will also enjoy the chance to own a piece of EHX memorabilia.”

Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
