Radial shipping Hot-British V9

Radial Engineering is now shipping its Hot-British V9 – an updated version of the Hot-British tube distortion pedal.

The Hot-British V9 builds on the success of its namesake using solid-state circuitry and a much smaller chassis size, making it easier to fit on a crowded pedalboard. The Hot-British V9 is also powered via a 9V supply, allowing it to be used with multi-pedal power supplies.

The Hot-British V9 features a Class-A buffering circuit, the retaining the natural feel and responsiveness of the guitar, radial says, while also allowing it to drive multiple pedals and longer cable runs.

‘Once engaged, three tone-shaping stages provide a high degree of control over the resulting sound, from subtle tube saturation textures to screaming over-the-top distortion. The Drive control sets the input level and the amount of distortion, while a Contour knob changes the character of the distortion itself. A two band EQ section after the distortion circuit allows you to tailor the tone to match your guitar and amp, along with a level control for the overall output of the pedal. There is also a 3-position Mid Boost to help cut through when soloing, and a Top End switch that can brighten or darken high frequencies’.
