    What thing do you like most and least?
    the scoop

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    mt2, ds2, Tubeman 2 and other distortion Ina ....

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    departing a little tank because I wanted THE big sound via the scoop "on" but not impossible to have (too death / black), in the end I am delivered and I have "exploded" the medium (yes I am 10) to have a nice bump and a cozy well with my vai sound. it is clear, precise cutting on a mesa recto say (hey I'm plugged into the clean of a peavey Rockmaster preamp with mxr distortion and go out on guitar rigg with a pair of speakers jbl lsr 2300 monitoring it helps ^^ ) day I frankly all I want and I love this potato straighter and net it gives me the 2 mt seems bland next to, opposite the al Rondat LNA allows me to put me in a register more rock " satrianesque "qand I want to do" simple "

    With experience, you do again this choice? ...

    Yes twice that a meme, although the noise gate serve me anything (I have a decimator upstream) I find it frankly more interesting than its sister the mt2 that it actually remains bland and "muscle" next to. my config allowed to think that I will play on a true mesa head if I unveiled my not "secret", a very nice surprise when trying to do simple and effective, is more than a test with JP50 to see the grain and rendering with crunch lab and LiquiFire.


    great stuff if you have what it takes upstream!

    then it is a distortion; this there is a noise gate and included a boost.
    this is pure analog and hard.

    editable: What????

    classic pedal jack in, out and power supply

    UTILIZATION

    So as they all say it does not like extremes. No knob thoroughly this is the only thing to know her. Otherwise there is a demonic distortion playing around with.

    A manual or ca? But as soon as it is really useful for this type of pedal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effective, responsive and realistic enough? GRAVE!!!!!!

    So I use it with my lag Arkane (micro DiMarzio Super Distortion)

    And watch Vantage (upgrade with a seymour duncan distortion Mayem kit)

    Hard to find things that I do not like it.......

    Hard to find things that I do not like it. After the knobs to the background sound becomes very runny thus avoided.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had a month and I just do without. MXR is good.

    Yes eyes closed I would do the same choice.

    If we know what are the knobs and if we know that we must open the pedal to adjust the noisegate (not practice) bah now ... Ya just plug in!

    But takes a little practice to find exactly THE sound.

    The noisegate're really breaks sweets set, but when it's done you come back more. Activation as well as the boost can not be foot ... Being a guy with fingers princess I can push it ... But some of my friends with their socks not successful ... End brief c is very small!

    I take off points for that but it is not so disturbing that ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    So there nano 1 cm rotation not change a lot of things ... The pedal has a tendency to sound synthetic active if not boost the mids and if you put at noon. Acute bleeding, contrast ... But no panic! A little fiddling we get to a balanced palm mutes its huge ... And that is my foot. The sound may be warm while keeping the edge and dynamism

    All distos from punk to death are in this tiny box, the settings are infinite, the pedal a huge gain ... So be sure you like the radical distos!

    I use it with a Peavey Bandit 112 and an Ibanez RGA32 ... And wow ... It's broke! I tried the dark matter, the metal muff, the mt2 ... And the MXR outperforms all. Because you can find a specific sound, balanced while all other synthetic sound (especially mt2, which is heavier).

    This pedal is the sharp metal distos Swiss Army knife.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for one and a half years.
    Above I could find a sound I was looking and I found nowhere else despite tested models mentioned above.

    A 90 € go for it ... She really is. I have no regrets, everything I asked her she did (except cappuccino but ... I have tried).

    If you try it do not stop at the first impression is that of coldness when we begin to understand we rediscovered! So for your test, try and explore long, I highly recommend to lovers of big sound!

    Analog distortion with noise gate and treble booster built. Classic jack connector

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty simple to use, even if there's a three equal bands (bass mid treble), a gain knob, one volume, two small buttons to the gate or treble booster

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use a gibson lp trad (classic 57 then). Basically, I am more connected Rock seventies (high gain but with bump in the mids). I also use it with a standard epi lp

    I only have my periods and I scratch the metal riff, and I wanted a sound that allows me to get into that field there.

    It was made for that and it feels. Big riff and Palm mutes are completely enjoyable with this stuff. Are solo, I kiffe not but I think it's......

    She sends so that ca gain becomes hard to differentiate guitars, but somehow that is what asked. Despite equal, it's still generally a sound V. Logic you tell me.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had three months. I think I would do this choice. Verily it serves to make the metal, but it does royally good. If you are looking for versatile, go your way.

    I had a DS1 before I sold for this distortion, then a premium mxr classic rock.

    Both coexist well on my pedal board, I activate one or the other depending on the mood of the moment! I think I'll keep longtemp

    I think everything has been said

    UTILIZATION

    I find it pretty simple configuration, despite all available knobs, I quickly found my sound.
    The manual, I have not looked.

    SOUND QUALITY

    While this pedal is not going to be used for the fan of Blues, rock or other, it is dedicated to a single style but this style she mastered. Yes and amateur metal this pedal is perfect, a real war machine, my neighbors hate me but I love it. Not too loud treble and bass to fart my HP. The sound is very clean and precise and progressive noise gate prevents small humm when you do not play.
    It is connected to a Godin Redline and Little Clean FX handles ringing all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 4 months since I buggers this, I do not play metal in my group but 2-3 song is perfect. Then when I want to calm down a little, the sound of the MXR puts me in my place. In short, if you find a pedal metal sound darker if you want the versatility to go your way.
    In my case I do it again this choice without hesitation.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is simple to start all the knobs have much effect on the race.
    The manual could perhaps extend the function of the Frequency knob, the operation is still a bit mysterious to me, but good as it sounds ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    BUTCHER THE TOTAL. This pedal sends a power ... I never rises beyond half the gain on an amp in its completely clear! It covers all styles of Metal Modern Sans Souci, however friends sounds 70's-80's little saturated this pedal is in my opinion too violent and not voicée for these styles of music. Pedal makes a lot of treble, so for me it is the treble knob between 0 and 1, that is otherwise honeycomb!
    Overall you have to search a bit to find the LE, but once the interaction of these knobs is understood, we found it quiet and will the edge surgical and cold to Death (Group eh), fat and the serious Cannibal Corpse, through the 80's Hair Metal or dug his mids to Pantera or even a honeycomb lifeless to the Mayhem ...
    I play with my Cort Aero 11 mounted with EMGX 60 and 81 on a combo Blackheart BH15-112.
    I love his side very powerful, versatile, capable of spitting Death Metal with a Roland JC-120 ...
    I do not like his side and sometimes acute honeycomb fuzzy if it is set incorrectly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 2-3 months and I do not regret my purchase, but I will try very HT-Metal Blackstar from home or from Ibanez Tube King story ;)
    It will not suit everyone, that's for sure, but she has personality, and balls of steel!

    I'm not a fan of 10, even if I lower the overall average, the eight that I put is a "true" 8.

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is very very basic ... same too. Editing sounds is quite naturally if one is accustomed. It should avoid extreme positions of knobs (bass style bottom, mid cut ...) if one wishes to have a sound similar to something.
    The doses are very high gain even with the gain set very low.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I tested the pedal 2 config.
    First on a Strat plugged into a standard Laboga The beast itself plugged into my house 1x12 Jensen. For the second config I plugged my Tele FMT HH with its Tone Zone in an acute in Sipder III 75W.

    The sound quality is pretty binary: if you want to play heavy metal stain of the Slayer what's all good, if we look a versatile overdrive pedal for cruncher, this is not the equipment that will be directed.

    Sounds all have the characteristic of being dug in the midrange, mushy and aggressive. They are very accurate cons and provide a lot of fun and rhythmic palm mute. After testing of a config we can notice that the dynamics of the lamps is a bit lost. The strat sounds like a racing metal guitar despite its single coils and the pedal does not respect the personality of the stuff on which it is connected.
    On the Config 2, I pushed the vice by giving me a tone lower and there is the slap ... the rhythmic poudrent fly, adding a mid yields of lead sounds very acceptable but again dedicated to a single style. This pedal sounds only comes out of metal but it is well taf. The last test to do would be accompanied by drum and bass rhythm guitar. I suspect she does not throw in the mix but it is to be confirmed.

    In short this is the sound of metal and attention, not heavy or power. Thrash sound, aggressive punk or death metal and black. In this register it overwrites the Spider III digital distortion and overdrive of The Beast seems to be sound "bluesy" ...

    The rating reflects only the sounds of metal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's rare that I write a test as quickly acquiring equipment but this pedal really does not require a long apprenticeship to learn the essence.
    I tried it in / / a Boss DS1 and a Metalcore. I was looking for the true metal sound and uncompromising in this register it has crushed the competition as the digital simulation of the spider.
    It is dedicated to one style but it does its job. Very rhythmic and compelling offering a wide range of opportunities to refine the basic sound enough typed it is a good companion for those who like to shake his head while playing hard.

    Since I was looking for a disto dedicated to metal but I'm satisfied I do not advise that in this framework.

    Fullbore the metal is a metal distortion pedal type high-gain.

    It has more knobs of basic 'level', 'freq', 'Win':

    All the knobs are nice to use and responds pretty well to what they are supposed to do.

    The pedal can be powered by a 9V battery or external power not supplied.

    The pedal is in a brushed metal shell that seems to be robust despite relatively small weight and size are mini.

    I put 8 to make the knob of the noise gate requires the opening of the pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of the pedal is rather simple.
    The manual, I did not even open or anything.
    Editing is simple, it is just impossible to try to change up the different knob which are quite small.
    Again an adjustment knob on noise-gate requires the opening of the pedal.
    The engagement of the scoop and noise gate are made by small push buttons that you can only access the finger.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It is well Fullbore the job. Gain even at 0 is already very high. And I do rarely grows above the half.
    The metal is well and good EQ can shape as we are willing.

    I played with a Jackson DK2m with passive microwave, and LTC ec-401 with EMG.

    Pedal to sound good fat, fairly well defined, both in rhythm than lead. The sustain is quite produce impressive. And the integrated noise gate allows for staccato riff pretty cool.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two days. And yet I appreciate it.

    I tested a lot of model-METAL MUFF (too rough), dime-distortion (more expensive for an equivalent result without noise gate), r1 and p1 of AMT (not quite metal, more like a overdrives ). I also have a Satchurator, but that is not enough rock and progressive metal). For the price / quality ratio, and the sound is one I found the best in this price area.

    Whether I referas choice I must use it in conditions of repeated and in concert, so wait and see
