Hotone A Station review

Not quite an A-Grade

  • £129

Our Verdict

A solid pedal let down by that annoying background noise.


  • Plenty of inputs and outputs.


  • Background noise.

First impressions here are positive with a metal chassis, user-friendly layout plus footswitchable mute and boost switches, with the latter offering a useful volume hike should you need it. 

The notch controls also allow you to eliminate unwanted feedback on specific frequencies. There’s also a wealth of inputs and outputs - an effects loop and input for your mic with the ability to mix it with your pickup sound or use it as a dedicated microphone preamp. 

The three-band EQ delivers so what’s the downer? There’s a constant background noise when the A Station is activated (and we tested two units).
