Hudson Electronics

Hudson Electronics has been making some of the most unique and toneful overdrives and boosts on the market, capturing the feel and vibe of classic UK preamps and consoles from the 1960s and squeezing them into pedalboard-friendly boxes. A few of us have been rocking Hudson pedals on our own pedalboards for years, so it's exciting to represent this incredible brand.

Meet The Pedals


The Broadcast is a transformer coupled, discrete Class-A germanium pre-amplifier based on the classic broadcast consoles of the 1960s. In the low-gain setting, the Broadcast can cover everything from sparkling clean boost through to transparent overdrive, all with a healthy dose of volume available to push your amp.

The Broadcast features a specially selected Triad steel-core transformer and a Germanium transistor. Advancing the gain on the Broadcast starts to saturate the transformer and the pedal’s discrete circuitry, giving rise to a gentle and dynamic compression coupled with subtle thickening of the mid-range.

Broadcast AP

For the Broadcast AP (Ariel Posen), Hudson took the low-gain side of the standard Broadcast as the starting point. Together, Ariel and Hudson exchanged the Germanium transistor for a Silicon and used an OEP transformer – the OEP transformer saturates and distorts less below 100Hz compared to the Triad transformer used in the standard Broadcast.

These two changes together give the Broadcast-AP a darker, smoother, more powerful tone compared to the standard version. Greater weight in the lows, whilst retaining the open highs and upper-mids, giving the Broadcast a ‘3D’ effect. 


The Sidecar is Hudson's take on the classic TS-808 circuit with the added versatility of a powerful two-band EQ which draws inspiration from a vintage Studer recording console. Packed with attitude and full of character, the Sidecar can cover classic overdrive and distortion as well as, at extreme settings, fuzz and boost.
