Hotone Introduces the XTOMP Modeling Pedal

A rugged pedal that models over 300 iconic classic, vintage, and modern effects.

Japan (July 18, 2016) -- Hotone’s XTOMP is a rugged, ultra-thin effects pedal stompbox that models over 300 iconic classic, vintage, and modern effects for guitar, bass, and more. The XTOMP uses a mobile app (available for iOS and Android) with an expanding effects library that allows you to transfer your favorite sounds to your pedal via Bluetooth Smart.

To simulate the diverse tones in its growing effects library, the XTOMP utilizes Hotone’s new, advanced Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling (CDCM) technology. CDCM, which processes various incoming signals dynamically, is unlike current modeling systems that use the same modeling circuit regardless of the signal. CDCM allows for larger and more complex modeling algorithms, which equals more realistic and natural tone. The result is a truly authentic effects model that you’ve never heard anything like before. Effect categories include Amplifier/Cabinet, Distortion, Dynamic, Frequency, Modulation, Ambient, Special and Combo where you can have two effects running simultaneously.

The XTOMP uses an iOS or Android app, available free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, to load effects directly to your pedal via Bluetooth ® Smart. A USB port allows for firmware updates and future XTOMP function upgrades. With almost every highly desired effect within easy reach, guitarists, bassists, keyboard players, singers, DJs and producers will find the XTOMP an invaluable tool. Learn more at
