Very good distortion, true bypass with high-end components.
Hizumi-distortion / sustain knobs
super reactive output volume very much!
Manual and documents: Japanese hhéhéhé! Effect
very effective, and yes also to the metal with Eq after everything is possible!
I play Gibson LP + Mesa Bogie, this distortion fills my need of fuzz / distortion in my pedalboard.
Used for a week, not in groups.
General verdict of sound: the sound is identical to my RAT built with home plate
Single specificity: the sound is much better carved, it offers more attacks!
It is a haunting pedal,
the sound is worthy of a distortion amp upscale!
The plant has just released Boot Leg Hizumi 1.02, it seems with germanium diodes, which makes the grain more vintage rock and less metal-hardcore.
Anyway I am more than satisfied with my Hizumi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
