[NAMM] Amptweaker TightMetal
The new TightMetal distortion pedal takes the TightDrive and TightBoost overdrive platform and provides metal and hardcore crunch tones with adjustable tightness thanks to the Tight control.
The TightMetal was created by adding additional stages in front of a modified TightDrive. A Mid switch helps get a more traditional metal rhythm sound with its Thrash setting which gives a deeper scooped mid tone. To help stop the notes even quicker, a Noise Gate switch with an ultra quiet, quick decaying Chomp setting really helps a lot, the company says.
Other features from the TightDrive remain intact, including the Effects Loop with its Pre/Post switch, the LED illumination of the controls, and the Battery On/Off switch and magnetic battery access door.
