The pedal uses a buffered bypass find out more about this here. First, choose your pre-gain option based on what type of sound you want eg: vintage or modern, tight or full. Then you can adjust your gain, volume and adjust the EQ to your liking. That could be really handy for a live situation as it could remove the need to mic up your amp. Simply connect the EHX Tortion to the mixer and run your normal line out to your amp.
Great feature for those who play live. Remember that this is an analog pedal so you might notice it behaves differently to a digital pedal. A digital pedal would have a quiet signal but because this is analog is operates differently. The EHX Tortion can deliver really crystal clean tones as well as distorted tones so one thing I played around with was using the normal mode to create a warm clean sound. Then use the white gain knob to dial in some distortion and use the Boost setting for a dirty sound.
Alternatively, you could create a light crunch in normal mode then use the Boost to keep the volume level the same but dial in more gain. Having two channels like this can give you a lot of flexibility in a live setting or just jamming along to a song. The 4-way pre-gain knob delivers a great range of tones. I used my 7 string to see how well the high gain Tight setting would compare against the Full setting and it definitely helped deliver a nice tight sound needed when riffing in the low range.
To get an idea of the range of different tones available with the EHX Tortion, check out this video:. I had a lot of fun with the EHX Tortion. One thing I like to do when testing out a pedal is to pick a random song from my music collection and try to match the guitar tone as closely as possible and see how quickly and closely I can match the tone.
It was so good to start with a fuzzy Hendrix tone then, change to a Pink Floyd lead tone than have to switch to a thick Dream Theater tone or a low and tight metal tone. The point here is that while some pedals are claimed to be versatile, this pedal really is. I jumped from song to song for about an hour and it was incredibly easy to match the wide range of tones.
Sometimes all I would need to do was change the 4-way pre-gain setting and adjust the EQ. Riffing on my 7 string felt really punchy thanks to the Tight pre-gain option. The sustain really draws you in while still giving you plenty of dynamics. What I noticed the most compared to other pedals is the way it responds to the way you attack the strings. Accenting notes or digging into the strings for pinch harmonics felt really satisfying. With single coils, you really hear the sparkle in each note.
The EHX Tortion is housed in a die-cast chassis and feels really secure. It is a fairly large pedal so keep this in mind if you already have a large pedal rig. The knobs on this pedal feel a lot more secure and part of the reason is the way they are positioned.
Having two rows and closely positioning the knobs together actually increases their strength. So I would definitely feel comfortable using this in a live situation without worrying about damage. The B9 Organ Machine they recently released absolutely floored me with its quality and flexibility.
The EHX Tortion really inspired me and my hour long jam became three hours simply because I really enjoyed listening to how the pedal would respond to the way I played. If you play a wide range of styles, this pedal will be able to do a great job at all of them.
Again, humbuckers get dirtier here than single-coils. Stepping on the boost adds a third sonic perspective, and this circuit has a huge amount of headroom in both its gain and volume knobs. This works well for low pre-gain settings if you need to call up moderate drive for a solo. Moving gain into higher settings yields enough distortion to address the needs of metal riffers, especially when you scoop out the mids.
The full and tight modes are still active with the boost engaged, so you can retain your carefully sculpted EQ character even when you hit the gas. The low pre-gain settings have a nice appeal for those who want just a little more out of their clean amplifier. Engaging the boost reveals the other side of the coin, unleashing plenty of frenzied distortion for those with much heavier tastes. Designed for modern bassists, it features the classic Gibson Reverse Thunderbird body and headstock shape.
The bound ebony fretboard features pearloid reverse split diamond inlays. The Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer finish is paired with Black Chrome hardware and a Mirror Plex truss rod cover with a Mirror Plex pickguard which features a laser engraved custom Gene Simmons logo. A hardshell case is included.
