EBS MetalDrive
It's a distortion pedal for bass.

Three positions (switch): tubesim (a little warmer to say), standard and flat (the distortion affects the whole spectrum of sound from which a more fuzzy).
2 buttons: distortion and output (volume).


It can be set to get only slightly distorted as a drive or weigh (attention is not the pedal that will completely transform your sound mushy metal!)


Manual in English but hey, it is not essential.
Very very very easy to use (see previous chapter).
Big difference between his positions tubesim / standard and the flat position.
Basically, it says drive or fuzz (switch)? At what level of drive (distortion button) and what volume button (output). I already owned the


Multidrive. I was super happy but I found it too sweet.
There I am delighted: it retains the possibility of a slight push and drive, in addition, we may well distort the sound!
This pedal keeps the same design as its big sister, in the positions tubesim or standard that it distorts the treble and midrange, the bass keeping quiet. Thus, the distortion obtained custody of the personality of your instrument. And that's good!
I put only 9 because the difference tubesim / standard is not huge


This pedal does not affect the personality of my bass.
It looks very robust.
It is hypersimple use.
It has no effect "noise bee" very low distortion knob setting.
It does not sound synthetic.
It makes me happy to finally have found a very good distortion pedal (the Multidrive was already excellent, but I needed a pedal a little more "nag").
