The Electro-Harmonix EHX Tortion JFET Overdrive Pedal is a highly versatile and dynamic overdrive and distortion pedal using analogue JFET technology.

Flagship Overdrive Pedal

The flagship overdrive and distortion pedal for Electro-Harmonix the EHX Tortion is one of the most advanced and dynamic overdrive pedals available today.

Using analogue JFET technology, the EHX Tortion reproduces the incredible overdrive and distortion character you get from valve amplifiers, all in a compact pedal.

Electro-Harmonix EHX Tortion JFET Overdrive Pedal Key Features:

  • Normal and Boost Modes
  • Three-Brand EQ
  • Pre-Gain Switch
  • Various Controls for Your Sound
  • DI Output Jack

Normal Vs Boost

You have two modes of operation with the EHX Tortion.

When in Normal Mode, you use three JFET stages, giving you low to medium gain sounds.

Activate Boost Mode with the BOOST footswitch and the EHX Tortion adds a fourth gain stage, giving you modern high-gain tones.

Each mode has completely independent volume and gain controls so you can use each mode like two separate channels on a valve amp.

Get Your Sound How You Want It

A Pre-Gain Switch is on hand for controling the level and tone of your initital signal going into the EHX Tortion.

You have four different settings with the Pre-Gain Switch. The two settings to the left give youa  lower input level giving you sound that is reminiscent of vintage plexi tones. The right two settings give you higer gain for a more modern, hot-rodded sound.

Furthermore, each pre-gain setting has two tone selections for you to choose from; Full and Tight (F and T on the pedal).

When using the Full setting, you get increased bass for a bigger sound. Select the Tight setting to get more focused bass frequencies, giving you modern tone.

Further sound shaping comes in the form of a 3-band EQ which allows you to separately adjust the BASS, MID and TREBLE frequencies.

There's also a low impedence DI output jack which can drive 600 Ohms so you can connect the EHX Tortion directly to a mixing console or audio interface.

Using an all-analogue amp/cabinet simulator, the Electro-Harmonix EHX Tortion's DI output gives you the sound of a real 4x12 cabinet.

Powerful Overdrive and Distortion

Powerful and completely customisable overdrive and distortion with the great sound of a valve amp.
