Guitar players at the two sides of the extremes of tone can fall into two camps when it comes to amplification. First, they can be the purist traditionalists who refuse to play nothing else unless they use vacuum tubes as they are after all “the real thing” those silly tech modelers try to imitate. Or, they can embrace all new forms of technology of modeling and solid state, and at the most extreme, go down that endless rabbit hole of options by spending more time playing with tech rather than playing their instrument.

Recently we’ve played around with different tube combinations and so going forward, all units shipping from July 2021 forward will be outfitted using a single 12AT7/ECC81 tube in the first position of the Hot Mod V2 Evo and a 12AX7/ECC83 in the second position. Continue reading
Perhaps this is the most common question we receive here when people first inquire about the Hot Mod V2, Lynch Mod, and Mr. Scary Mod. And of course we also offer a reverse-wired version so that either model can also function in many of the reissue amps which the original Soldano Hot Mod could not. In general, although there are non-master and master volume amps listed here, note that all of our mod devices generally work better if your amp has a master volume on it. So here is the list:
At LegendaryTones we’ve always had a fascination with Tube Screamers and the variants simply because they work so well with so many guitar and amp configurations. Whether being used for boosting an amp into greater natural tube overdrive or as an overdrive in front of a clean amplifier, there’s many applications for this famous green box that carries such a lengthy pedigree and legend.
We’re excited to announce that we have engineered the Hot Mod V2 to now work within two of the newest Marshall Studio Series amps: the Studio Classic, a portable replica of the JCM 800 2203, and the Studio Vintage, Marshall’s mini version of the famed 1959SLP non-master volume amp.
Wireless technology has come a long way over the past couple decades, and analog and digital units both are upping their game with improvements in sound quality, performance, and reduced latency.

HIRED GUN opens for one night only in theaters nationwide TODAY, Thursday June 29, 2017. It is positioned as the quintessential summer film, a rock documentary feature about the stars behind the stars. The film features session and touring musicians that are hired by well-established and famous bands and artists from Billy Joel to Pink to Metallica, and KISS, among many others.
These hired guns — some household names, some not — are undeniable masters of their craft who talk about the art of creating historic rock ‘n roll music of our time. “Hired Gun” is a unique motion picture with the pedigree of winning numerous festivals and making an impact with print editors and the rock community in advance of its June 29th US premiere.
Not every overdrive or distortion pedal has a pedigree that begins with the influence from a Tube Screamer. Many of today’s designers look to other classics to either modify or create their own variations. Today we’ll spend time with the Analogman DS-1 Pro Mod with midrange control, Keeley’s Super Phat Mod Full Range Overdrive and the Totally Wycked Audio (TWA) Hot Sake. Each has its own unique story and tone so join us as we explore them further.
