loudfunk's review"NOW this is a distortion pedal..."

Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz
Simple high gainer, made to turn your clean amp into a fire breather...volume, tone, gain and the magic control...Bias.
Bias emulates the operating Class of your amp. As in your typical Marshall or Fender being Class A/B, stuff like Fender Champ, THD UniValve being Class A, and Music Man HDs being Class B.
The feel and attack changes with that.
Most folks will be happiest in the Class A/B range 10 to 2 o'clock. Personally I love it with Bias at 9 o'clock for Class A.


Manual is rather helpful but really not necessary, after all it's a distortion pedal, by now there shouldn't be any surprises on what one does.
Have used it on pedal boards, and when I travel and take nothing but a guitar this one comes along. So no matter what amp gets put behind me I know as long as I can dial in a halfway decent clean sound my gain sound will be solid if not great.


When I first tried the pedal I plugged into my favorite high gainer and set up the clean side with the pedal to A/B with the dirty side of the amp without the pedal. And I was very surprised how much I liked the pedal. I also like running it with a second pedal for over the top all out gain.

Interestingly enough I much prefer to run the output way low, like 9 0'clock and then boost the level after with a clean boost then just running the volume higher.


Love, love, love it! I know there's a newer version but I see no reason to upgrade since this is my ultimate turn a clean amp into a high gain monster sound.
The only down side is that the battery has no easy access and you have to unscrew the bottom plate to change it. But that is pretty much the only niggle I can think of.

Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz
The Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz is an overdrive pedal that aims to be an emulation of a tube amplifier. I didn't know anything about Emma Electronic until I used this pedal, which is now discontinued. There is a newer version - the RF-2, but I haven't used it as of yet. The pedal has a simple configuration, with 1/4" connections for input and output and taking it power from a nine volt power supply. It isn't rackmountable since it's a stomp box.


There's not much to using the Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz, as it simply has a series of four knobs for parameters. They control volume, tone, bias, and gain, all of which are pretty standard except for the bias control, which allows you to control the 'amp' sound, changing it from class A to B components. I haven't seen a manual, but users should be able to get away without needing it since it's so easy to use.


The Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz is a really thick sounding OD box. It aims to give you a tube amp's distortion sound, and while it doesn't have a real tube inside of it, it still does quite a good job of this. I haven't recorded with it as a player, as a client brought it into the studio that I work at, but this thing absolutely ripped on the recordings we did. The player was using his Fender Telecaster and the studio's Fender Pro Reverb. It's probably best to use this with a tube amp as it's not going to be the same on solid state.


While somewhat pricey, the Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz is a very high caliber overdrive/distortion pedal. It's definitely a unique take on an overdrive pedal, as they literally try to copy the sound of breaking up tubes here, which of course is the first true overdrive. This is a pedal that is built to last and should give you years of great work, so it's definitely worth consideration regardless of price...

Emma Electronic RF-1 ReezaFRATzitz
This is a pdle overdrive / distortion (according to the manufacturer), plus a warm and fat overdrive. The technology used is simple. The electronic simple, light (and you wonder how come such a grain without lights for that matter). The connection is simple. In / out as usual. This is a stompbox, format encobrant little, but not the format Boss (for those who possdent the suitcase ..). I put 9 because I think the name is not REPRESENTATIVES of the effect. I have not found that it was a distortion, even if the overdrive can be extremely powerful.


Operation is simple. There are 4 potentiomtres: Level (output level), tone (no need to explain), bias (particularity subtilis to move towards its plutt class A amp (vox) or class B (Fender, Marshall). rglage This seems harmless (but not zero) with an amp simulator (I use a POD 2), but its magnitude is really with a real amp (a Marshall JCM800 impeccable, and amazingly good on a Line 6 Spider III 150 Head with the firm ddicass. RULES Finally gain the level of distortion of sound. In short, simple, intuitive ... for IMMEDIATE about the results convincing. I 9 to put the over-subtle "hardxare knob of bias).


This is the highlight of the pedals. I play the guitar for 17 years, and I tried a number of standard pedals to try to get her to finally find both a fat and prcis. Eureka! The pedals will delight owners of transistor amp (but also lamps). I can not understand how they are pa took to get a sound like without going through the lamps, but is your exact l.. and really l. This is REALLY polyalente pedals for everything that revolves around the blues, rock and hard rock). It Ragit quite the type of game and can play solos and to attack a prcis powerchord with its monstrous, without changing rglage. More importantly, it alie major default in 99% of pedals for overdrive or distortion: the loss of bass. The sound is warm like a shack fries (I'm Belgian).
Personally, I am currently working with a 1989 Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Line6 Spider III HD 150 and appointed his cabinet. J'tais just left with the amp (which is more clearly mtal East), despite the sounds and some nice cleans trs effect uni-paramtrables convincing. I missed the heat lamps. IT'S DONE. Honntement, it's pretty indescribable, mas if you want to rock muscle or dirty blues, look no further.


I use it for two weeks, but my exprience I can tell you that I came this time a gem.
In fact, as many musicians bn dsempars, I tried both of the power, finesse and roundness. I arrived at my new music warehouse, saying I want a warm and fat overdrive, but no distortion. He brought me a T-rex Mudhoney pedals (yes, I know, it's not the conventional) that sounded good dj trs trs. I asked him the same kind with a touch of mtal more (meaning heavier) and that's what made me try. I'm on the ass. Belgian friends, go see it ( http://www.groovestreet.be ) is a cool guy who takes his time, who do not buy it grows, possde effects and especially crazy. .. He knows them by heart. Last dtail: The price is hard: 219 euros, has rflchir ... but take time to think versatility. Sometimes (and c'tait my case) must have the means to be poor (CAD if you must buy 4
-5 Pedals to get her the end you will pay twice).
Kisses and all that you will j'espre dchirez with.
