Big Joe Hard Tube B-405 featured in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the December issue of the magazine features a review of Hard Tube B-405 guitar effect pedal from Big Joe. TopGuitar’s gear department editor Maciek Warda performed a test of the product and wrote a short review, summing it up with the following words:

“Paul and David Christian, despite their Big Joe brand being vintage-flavored, decided to get also a little in the way of hi-gain distortion pedals manufacturers. Hard Tube is a surprising example of modern metal tone with a hint of the 70s’ and 80s’ style.”

The product was delivered for review by the distributor of Big Joe in Poland, Warwick Distribution.

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
