Electro-Harmonix Tortion JFET Overdrive / Distortion / Preamp pedal. The Electro-Harmonix Tortion JFET Overdrive / Distortion / Preamp pedal. EHX's flagship overdrive/distortion covers vast tonal real estate and redefines versatility. Like a database of great tone, the EHX TORTION's full complement of features and controls make dialing in inspired guitar sound intuitive.Whatever the era, from vintage to modern, your search for the ultimate tone has ended. JFET overdrive for tube-like response and tone.
Boost switch with independent Volume and Gain for two-channel flexibility. 4-way Pre-Gain selector, plus Treble, Middle and Bass for complete sound control.
Use it as a preamp - balanced XLR output with cabinet emulation. 9.6DC-200 Power supply included. The EHX TORTION operates in two modes: NORMAL and BOOST.
The NORMAL mode uses three JFET stages for low to medium gain sounds. The volume and gain controls for NORMAL mode are located in the top row of knobs.
The boost mode is activated with the BOOST footswitch, and adds a fourth gain stage for modern high-gain tones. The BOOST volume and gain knobs are on the bottom row of the controls. The volume and gain controls for each mode are completely independent, allowing the two modes to function like two separate channels on a tube amplifier. GAIN Knob - The NORMAL GAIN knob is on the top row.
This knob controls the amount of input gain when the pedal is in NORMAL mode. This knob is disabled when in BOOST mode.
PRE-GAIN Switch - This switch controls the level and tone of the initial input signal to the EHX TORTION. This switch has four settings. The two leftmost settings select a lower input level, for vintage plexi tones. The two rightmost settings are higher gain for a modern, hot-rodded sound.Each pre-gain setting has two tone selections: Full or Tight, indicated by F and T. The Full setting has more bass for a bigger sound. The Tight setting focuses the bass frequencies for a more modern tone. BASS Knob - Controls the level of the bass frequency range. MID Knob - Controls the level of the middle frequency range.
TREBLE Knob - Controls the level of the treble frequency range. VOL Knob - The NORMAL VOL knob is on the top row. This knob controls the output level of the EHX TORTION when in NORMAL mode.BOOST GAIN Knob - The BOOST GAIN knob is on the bottom row. This knob controls the amount of input gain when the pedal is in BOOST mode.
This knob is completely independent from the NORMAL GAIN knob, and is disabled when in Normal mode. BOOST VOL Knob - The BOOST VOL knob is on the bottom row. This knob controls the output level of the EHX TORTION when in BOOST mode. This knob is completely independent from the NORMAL VOL knob, and is disabled when in Normal mode. BYPASS Footswitch and red LED - This footswitch selects whether the EHX TORTION is engaged or in buffered bypass mode.When the effect is engaged, the red LED will be lit. BOOST Footswitch and blue LED - This footswitch toggles Boost mode on and off. When in Boost mode, the blue LED will be lit. INPUT Jack - This ¼ jack is the audio input for the EHX TORTION. The input impedance is 1M Ohm. OUTPUT Jack - This ¼ jack is the audio output from the EHX TORTION. The output impedance depends on the VOLUME setting, ranging from 250 Ohm to 25k Ohm. BOOST SW Jack - Allows an external momentary footswitch to control toggling Boost mode on and off. The external switch should be normally open. Upon engaging the switch, it should create a short circuit between the Tip and Sleeve of the plug inserted into the BOOST SW jack on the EHX TORTION. Releasing the switch should open the circuit between the Tip and Sleeve. The BOOST SW jack is connected in parallel with the BOOST Footswitch so they can both work at the same time.
A suggested momentary footswitch that has been tested with the EHX TORTION is the Boss FS-5U Momentary Foot Switch. DI OUTPUT Jack - This is a low impedance output capable of driving 600?
To plug directly into a mixing console or recording equipment. The DI output uses an all-analog amp/cabinet simulator to create the sound of a real 4x12 cabinet. This output's signal is line-level, and is controlled by the active Volume knob.When the EHX TORTION is in bypass mode, the DI output and cabinet simulator are still active, and send your bypass signal through the simulator. This can be used to warm up the sound of other pedals or processors for recording. 9V Power Jack - Although the EHX TORTION accepts 9V Batteries, it is supplied from the factory with an Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC-200BI power supply. Plug the output of the supplied AC Adapter into the 9V power jack located at the top of the EHX TORTION.
The EHX TORTION draws 27mA at 9VDC with a center negative plug. The EHX TORTION accepts Boss® and Ibanez® style AC Adapters.
