Vancouver, BC (February 9, 2017) -- Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the Hot-British V9, an updated version of the widely popular Hot-British tube distortion pedal.
The Hot-British V9 builds on the success of its namesake with solid-state circuitry and a much smaller chassis size, making it easier to fit on a crowded pedalboard without sacrificing on tone. The V9 is also powered via a 9V supply, allowing it to be used with multi-pedal power supplies. Now you can have the sought-after tone of a high-gain Plexi tube amp in a size suitable for fly-dates.
Beginning with Radial's unique Class-A buffering circuit, the Hot-British V9 retains the natural feel and responsiveness of the guitar, while also allowing it to drive multiple pedals and longer cable runs with ease. 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.
Built in Canada and housed in a compact 4 1/4"x 4"x 2 1/8" solid steel chassis, the Hot British V9 is tough enough to withstand the rigors of the road, and ships with Radial's 3-year transferable warranty.

Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to introduce the Texas-Pro, a powerful overdrive combined with a clean booster circuit, providing plenty of power and versatility in a compact pedalboard-friendly enclosure.
Beginning with Radial's unique Class-A buffering circuit, the Texas-Pro retains the natural feel and responsiveness of the guitar, while also allowing it to drive multiple pedals and longer cable runs with ease. The Overdrive section is capable of a wide range of tonal variations, with individual controls for Drive, output Level, and Tone, so you can dial in the settings that best match your guitar and amp. A three-position Range switch allows you to select the style of overdrive, from warm vintage tones, to a modern rock style or aggressive over-the-top saturation.
The overdrive is complemented by a separate Boost circuit capable of adding +22dB of clean gain, allowing you to push the front end of your amp harder or let your solos cut through. A built-in effects loop allows you to connect a series of pedals that are brought into the signal chain when you engage the Boost circuit. This allows you to simultaneously activate the booster and a delay or chorus pedal, giving you a more streamlined and professional transition for soloing.
The Texas-Pro is built in Canada with heavy-duty 14-gauge steel construction to handle years of abuse on the road. A compact 4 1/4"x 4"x 2 1/8" chassis fits on any pedalboard, and it is powered from a standard 9V supply like those found on many multi-pedal power bricks.
