Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

This would be a great tool for shaping your tone, but the loud hum is a deal breaker for me. Even if their is a device that can get rid of it, it should NOT be there.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I ordered 2 of these. First a used one that the expression pedal input didn't work. Sent it back and ordered a new one. That one didn't work at all. Just howled and squeeled all the time with or without an instrument plugged in. Sent that one back also. Too bad because it was just what I was looking for in an EQ pedal and the only one that offered all that I was looking for. Don't know if I should try a 3rd one or not. Doubtful.

      Great tone x2

      By Aaron Strange

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I run this with my Marshall JVM-410H which sounds awesome on it's own, but when I added the EH Tube eq the tone became unbelievable, the depth and richness were increased substantially, if your amp lacks life this box will "reanimate" it for sure, I will give it a 9 out of 10 because of a little added noise but I also use the EH Humdebugger which takes care of that, all in all an awesome pedal.

      Tone tweaker in a box

      By Dave

      from L.C., La.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      If your the kinda person searching for better tone this pedal will be a big help! It's almost like changing pickups with the varation in tone this box is capable of. It also works great as a preamp of sorts. I use this in front of my little Epi Valve Jr. and went from wanting to sell the lil' amp to making it a perminant addition to my gear. Also works great with my Marshall 9005 amp when I want a different tone than what I get with the Marshall 9001 preamp. This is one of those pedals that you will be glad you bought if you are searching for better/different tone or just need to shape your sound some. You won't be sorry. Only thing that EH could do to make it better would be to add a memory setup like they have on the POG 2. I'd give it 5 stars if they added that.

      This is the shiz!

      By imthebomb

      from My, House

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I play through a line 6 spider 3 75... yeah. Previously, i couldn't use distortion pedals through it because it sounded like crap. But when i put the tube EQ after my distortion it sounds freaking amazing. Like really. The only downsides are the price (which is a little ridiculous) and the fact that you cant use it with your amps distortion unless your amp has an effects loop. Also, it would be nice if it had a few more eq controls. However, is works wonders for the clean channels. I havent had any problems with the buzz people have been talking about, but my amp has a built in noise gate. Buy it if you want to use effects pedals with a solid state amp.

      Great tone but...

      By Tarsus

      from sebastopol, CA

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I was looking for a pedal to warm up and beef up my tone a bit. This pedal will do for you. The way this pedal warms and thickens the tone without muddiness is great. The only real problem I have had with it is that it is noisy. It has ground-loop type buzz to it and if you tweak the treble setting up anywhere past half-way a hissing is also introduced. I did really like the way it warmed up my tone so I went out and bought a Boss NS-2 noise suppressor and it knocked the buzzing and hissing right out. Now that the buzz is gone, I really enjoy what this thing done for my tone, truly. To sum up:Pros: Great tone, warmth, nice tube feel, low costCons: buzzing and hissing but that can be fixed by purchasing another $80 noise supressor. I gave this pedal an overall rating of 3.0 because of the noise and the need to buy another pedal to kill the noise. As a side note, the noise supressor is a nice pedal to have just because! So no harm done.

      Beef up your solid state rig

      By fiddlesticks259

      from Texas

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I've been running this thing through the effects loop of an old solid state 2x12 amp that I've had forever...man what a difference! Really added a lot of character to the old beast...to the extent that I've put off buying a tube amp again!

      Tube EQ-Electro Harmonix

      By Fiddlesticks259

      from Texas

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This thing WILL warm up your boring old solid state amp! I ran it through the effects loop of mine and it really did add tone and character. Beware of the power supply though...it's one of a kind so it will not be easy to replace if it gets broken or lost.

      EH Tube EQ

      By Jimmy P

      from Texas

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Tube EQ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I got this thing to warm up my old trusty (but toneless) solid state 2x10 amp. Run through the effects loop it REALLY made a HUGE difference! The amp had NO character before but with this thing it has a lot of nice overtones and "sing" to it. I haven't tried the expression pedal feature yet.Now the bad news (sort of): where the ac adaptor plugs into the unit is unlike any I've seen in other pedals. If you accidently mess up the adaptor (like if your drummer's cymbal falls and cuts the cord in half), you're not going to go to Radio Shack or most music stores and find a replacement. This unit would probably be better as a rack unit with a "real" plug.The other "down side" is the cost...190.00 is a bit pricey for an eq, but if you're not ready to shell out the bucks for a big watt tube amp, then it makes since to go with this unit until you can upgrade. It won't "magically" turn your solid state into a boutique amp, but it will add a BUNCH of soul and character to you rig.
