The Hotone Skyline Series WHIP stompbox is so small and lightweight that it can literally live in a guitar case or bag, yet still deliver premium effects.

The Hotone Skyline Series WHIP is a distortion pedal designed for creating aggressive metal tones. The WHIP features Tone and Volume parameter controls for shaping tone and the push-style EDGE button adds high end boost. The compact, easy-to-use design features a metal footswitch and analog-style parameter knob so you can really tweak your tone. With its pronounced LED, the WHIP will shine bright on a live stage.

The miniature sized WHIP makes a great addition to any existing pedalboard where space and weight are at a premium, while the true bypass design lets you build the lightest, most compact pedalboard imaginable using multiple Skyline Series stompboxes.

Don't let its tiny size fool you, the Hotone WHIP is built to last with a strong casing and a metal bar to absorb the most emotional stomps that your passion unleashes. 9VDC power supply optional.

Noisy but not in a good way


This pedal is incredibly noisy. I have tried it with a tube amp and a solid state amp and both had the same issue. As far as the distortion sound it makes I am not a fan of that either. It sounds really bad to me although I know this is subjective. I wish I had saved my money and bought a pedal twice as expensive because this one is just a brick on my floor now to never be used again. I would avoid unless you are desperate for some cheap distortion.




Adorable and Heavy Metal


This was a great pedal. It has alot of adjustable components to reach that certain tone.

Giant Heavy Metal in a little bitty box


My friend Dustin and I were in the store in Dallas looking at Pedals. We came across the Hotone (Is it Hot-One or Ho-Tone) Line. The price was very right so we started checking them out. When we hooked up the Whip and turned it up it was Blissful. It's tone immediately dictated what was about to be plaid... Heavy Metal!! Within 20 seconds of being turned on, there was a group of people gathered around, amazed at the sound being produced. Old School to New School, it can do it all, and do it very well. It is also very versatile, you can turn down the gain and get a nice light overdrive as well. The only drawback to anything from Hotone, is that you will need to feed it power. I just use the 1spot to power the four Hotone pedals that were purchased that day. If you are looking for a pedal that can take you to the edge and then push you over using a Mack Truck, look no further.
