I know these Legendary Series pedal are supposed to be preamps used in an effects loop. This review is based off of running in front of an amp like most pedals are intended.

This pedal is horrible! It is attempting to sound like EVH or a 5150 amp, but it comes up way short. Unlike most AMT pedals this one really sounds like a pedal and not anything like an amp. It is very thin and metallic sounding. It has a fuzz thing going on that is annoying to hear and brittle sounding.
- The AMT Legend Amp Series guitar pedals provide excellent dynamics, nuances, and characteristics similar to that of tube driven amplifiers.
- Tube-like range of volume control provides great sound density, playability, and power when playing at full volume and also in conjunction with your guitars volume knob.
- TRUE BYPASS. The preamps of the Legend Amp Series pedals use passive true bypass circuitry, therefore no loss of guitar signal is noticed in your pedal chain. Similar to if no pedal was there at all when bypassed.
- Features high level of output signal (+10dB in extreme position of Level knob) corresponds to the output levels similar of tube preamps. Thus, you have adjustable signal level allowing to hook up your preamp AND direct input of a power amplifier.
- Controls include LEVEL, GAIN, LOW, MID, and HIGH.
- TWO signal outputs: DIRECT AMPLIFIER OUT for guitar amplifier use and CAB SIMULATION OUT for mixer, or studio use.
- Power saving mode. When the speaker simulation output jack is not in use, the pedal automatically switches to power saving mode. Current consumption (from 9V power unit) is less than 6mÀ (in power saving mode it drops to 4mÀ).

UTILIZATION

This pedal is very user friendly with only 5 control knobs. The EQ section is pretty basic and does as it reads....Low, Mid, and High. The Level control the overall volume output and the Gain will control the distortion and saturation.

You really don't need a manual as this thing is labeled simply as it says and sounds horrible in any setting.

SOUND QUALITY

AMT this pedal is garbage! I would rather buy a trash Boss pedal than this thing as I know Boss pedal last forever sounding like garbage and you just haven't been around long enough to know whether or not I'll have a trash tone for years to come.

It really doesn't matter which amp or guitar you try it with. The pedal simply reminds me of the Boss DS-1 at how embarrassing this pedal sounds. I'd rather bang trash cans against the side of the wall then record or even play this thing live.

OVERALL OPINION

This thing supposed to sound like a 5150 amp is it doesn't even come close. The 5150 is a legendary amp which this is the legendary series pedals. Nice try but no cigar AMT...this pedal will better fit being run over by a truck then be attached to any pedal board.

I wouldn't recommend this pedal to anyone. It is such trash and the price is good at $120 but it will be a waste of $120 bucks. Don't waste your time or money. AMT has a few better pedals than this one.
