Hot Chili Tube Company was founded and is dedicated to design, manufacture, market and sell the best quality analog and tube driven effects pedals possible. That is why we make sure every pedal is throughly tested for quality, durability, strength and tone before we ship it to you. If you want the BEST in hand made, point to point wired effects pedals, you will choose the Tubester. It is THE choice for serious, working musicians!

“When it comes to great tone, nothing beats a real tube pedal. As a gigging musician, I was frustrated by crappy “tube” pedals on the market, so I designed the Tubester. It simply sounds GREAT! Built like a tank with 14ga steel, I use only the best materials. Each one is individually wired by hand in the U.S., with point to point wiring and the best quality components from Carlingswitch, Switchcraft, Motorola, etc. If you want the best tube pedal at a reasonable price, this is it!”  -Don McCandless , Hot Chili Tube Company
