The Hot-British V9 is an updated solid-state version of the venerable Tonebone Hot British tube distortion pedal. Packed into a pedalboard-friendly compact chassis, the Hot-British V9 retains the same soul and character of the original, with the ability to be powered by standard 9V pedalboard power supplies.

Under the hood, a Class-A buffering circuit gives you the feel of a true-bypass pedal with the added benefits of greater noise rejection and lower impedance, allowing you to drive pedal chains and longer cable runs efficiently. The Hot-British V9 also features multiple tone shaping stages to provide you with total control over your sound. The Drive control sets the overall distortion amount and input level, so you can apply a touch of grit and tube-like saturation, or crank it up for screaming lead tones. Next up, the Contour knob augments the character of the distortion, to vary it between warm, fat textures and brighter tones with more 'air'.

The post-distortion EQ controls provide a powerful way to shape your overall sound, allowing you to tailor the Hot-British V9 to best match your guitar and amplifier. Low and High EQ knobs are complemented by 3-position Top End and Mid Boost switches, so dialing in the perfect tone is a snap. Lastly, a Level control sets the output of the Hot-British V9 to your amplifier. The Hot-British V9 is compact and takes up little valuable pedalboard space, yet it is built extremely rugged, with heavy-duty components and a 14-gauge steel enclosure. One listen and you'll be blown away by how a device this small can produce such huge tone.

  • High gain Plexi-style distortion

  • Powerful tone-shaping EQ controls

  • Compact size saves pedalboard space

  • Standard 9V power supply operation

I bought this pedal little while ago, I was searching for a Marshall Plexi/JCM style distorsion, I tried many other models in the past and nothing really did the trick until I acquired the Hot-British, even some of the high end boutique Plexi pedals couldn't get me the tone I was looking for. Adjustable voicing gives you a wide range of tones, the mid boost really allows you to cut through the mix and they are built like tanks and should last a very long time. Such a great pedal, I ended up buying a second one just in case something happened to the first one.

The pedal greatly exceeds expectations, especially for the price point. I run it into a PowerStage 700 and effectively use it as my pre-amp. All controls offer an abundance of versatility and are enjoyable to experiment with. This is a relief seeing as how many distortion pedals can be quite temperamental. It's actually difficult to make this pedal sound bad. It's worth giving the good ol' Canadian boys at Radial a try!

Just picked this up last week on a clear out sale. I had been looking for a pedal to emulate that spongy British EL34 drive sound. I?ve run it in front of 2 el84 amps (peavey classic 30 and Mesa F30) and the sound is great. Spongy yet tight if that makes sense. This is a distortion pedal, not overdrive. Even in the lowest drive setting, there is plenty gain. Take some time to dial in your sound as there are plenty options, not just your typical level, drive and tone settings.
