Hotone Grass Review

Hotone Grass Review

Size matters. But bigger isn’t always better. Especially when we’re talking about guitar pedals. And the Hotone 'Grass' is just about as small as it gets.

Packed into this tiny green frame is a surprisingly large amount of features: ‘volume’, ‘voice’ and ‘gain’ controls (the ‘volume’ and ‘gain’ controls even glow in the dark), a true-bypass feature and a bright switch. Small enough even to fit into your pocket, the variation in tone and overdrive settings means that this pedal punches way above its weight.

Sound-wise, the ‘Grass’ lends itself to jazz and blues, if not even a little rock: whilst you might not get walls of distortion, the ‘Grass’ has the capabilities to add a crisp overdrive at the mid and high ends, but especially to your guitar’s lower depths. Think vintage, natural break up, not screaming overdrive.

Hardware-wise, the green alloy casing feels secure and, combined with the pedal’s minimal weight, you shouldn’t feel too worried bring the ‘Grass’ on the road. It’s also just mains powered, which could be a downside, but come-on, you’re can’t expect to get batteries in such a tiny package as well!

And then there’s the price. For under £60, you really aren’t going to find a better over-drive pedal.

Learn To Play Guitar
I was a fairly new guitarist when I went to Hawi. Hawi got me play the music I liked, giving me confidence in my playing, coupled with the fact that you will be learning from one of the premier guitarists in the country. - Dean, Essex
