The new TightRock Distortion pedal is designed to bridge the gap between two very popular Amptweaker pedals, the TightMetal and TightDrive.
A new Amptweaker feature is the SideTrak effects loop. This extra effects loop turns OFF when the pedal is ON. It can be used to add a compressor, chorus or chain of effects that only works when you play clean, or to switch to another distortion pedal to use for the rhythm sound, without having to hit more than one pedal – according to Amptweaker, this is like having a built-in A/B box.If only the Send is used, it can send the bypassed signal to a different amp for the clean tone or can act as a true-bypass muted tuner send. A green LED alternates with the normal red one to indicate that the loop is active when the pedal is bypassed.
The standard effects loop with Pre/Post switch is also included on the back, to add delay or other effects for the solo. Other TightDrive features include the LED illumination of controls, Battery On/Off switch, and magnetic battery access door.
