« Sub-par distortion pedal. »

Published on 04/01/11 at 21:50
This is a metal distortion pedal. It has a load of gain on tap, a distortion knob, and a four band EQ consisting of High, Low, Mid, and middle frequency. It has an input, an output, and a standard BOSS style center negative 9V DC jack.

UTILIZATION

This pedal is easy to set up and easy to use. Set the EQ and gain to taste, the volume so it's equal at bypass and you're ready to riff. The manual is very clear on what knob does what.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal does not sound all that good. It's harsh, fizzy, thin, and muddy. There's not much you can do to make this pedal sound good at all. It's far too trebely. It's a grating, harsh, fizzy mess. It sounds like you've connected your guitar to a can of bees instead of an amp. The best way to describe the pedal is a buzz saw. It sounds like someone hooked up a buzz saw instead of a guitar to your amp. It sounds a lot like Dimebag's tone, which, in my opinion, is NOT a god thing. I am always unbiased when reviewing and never go on bandwagon. I am reviewing this based on my impression of it, and that is, this pedal is too harsh and fizzy.

OVERALL OPINION

This pedal is ok at best. There isn't much you can do to dial out the insane amount of treble present in the sound. THAT is it's big downfall. It's harsh and muddy. For $99, there are many better options for a metal pedal than this. $99 is far too much for what it is. If you wanna sound like a buzz saw, this is the pedal for you. If you wanna sound like Dimebag Darrel, this is the pedal for you. If you want a usable and good sounding metal distortion, steer clear. I would never buy this pedal again.
