MGR/GREAT!!!! AWSOME!!!!! ROCK ON!!!!!!'s review"Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion"

Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion
I play everything, man. Metal, Blues, Classic-Rock, Modern-Rock, pretty much everything.

I don't really have a band, but I like jaming with my friends just about every weekend and it would be cool if we got a recording unit... but we don't

I bought this pedal from Musicians-Friend,
and I paid $70 plus tax and shipping charges.

I like the 4 band EQ a lot. You can use it for any kinda style that calls for distortion. The bright blue LED looks cool. Pro quality distortion. And built liek a tank, man.

It's KINDA bulky. And theres no included AC adaptor, but it comes with a 9 VOLT battery so I geuss its ok.

Built like a tank, man! And not a crappy Korean one! HAHA!

If you like pro distortion that can get from bluesy sounds to insanely distorted death metal and everything in between, than this thing is for you!

Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion
it is a distortion pedal, it does nothing else! this is the analog I think, with one input and one output jack (super basic)


where it thickens a bit! good to begin with, there is a level adjustment, distortion (gain) so far so good! now turn to equalize .... 4 bands! it takes time to adjust but once you understand how it works, it works bah! then the settings are High, low, mid and mid freq, and it is very easy to get different type of sound, saturated exclusively.


This is a very powerful distortion, no complaints about that.
I play it with Seymour Duncan active, it takes a very, very big sound!


it's been 3 years since I use it, no complaints!
I love his power, just under his stripper side acute.
it is a robust pedal, good price / quality ratio
I do not think changing any time soon but I do not know if I would reiterate.

Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion
Pedal complte trs, trs versatile distortion trs a pallet wide, effective: a knob for gain, for an acute one for the serious one for trebble and one for the pr presence, the Basik what! 9v battery power or adaptateur.boiti metal indstructible! and small blue LED to indicate when it is running very practical in concert!


Even if to find the sound you want it you must to spend some time its use is intuitive, simple knob trs argl


The most importantly, I was playing forward on metal master and all that I saw the difference, we make the metalica, the deftones, the slayer, the ac / dc slipknot or nickel is if we understood the fawn of rglpar against a hard shot low volume of sound that big a 15wat dchire therefore the room is not the foot but in concert ad Chire! However if you want a little crunch of his pass your way, but hey if this is called: Metal pedals planet is not for nothing good on the other hand I wonder if the button is used to gain some personal thing because I always put a background, I use it on peavey bandit 112 prs with the pedals Tremona SE and brought a lot to my sound.


I have a year and if I had to ratchet pedals I would take a 100 hundred times that the ci.pour mtal c'tai really what I needed for some time even though I realize that she allowed me to approach some of what I like but it's not big parfait.en ComenC to you if you tired of your rotten amp distortion pedals that can be a good choice but it will not turn your amp squier in mesa boogie, so if you want a little more to add to your sound is saturated THE PDAL for you but if you're looking for rvolution obtez sound rather a multi purpose amp simulator or better a new amp!

Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion
Distortion pedal.
Heavy distortion but still rock'n'roll in spirit.
Versatility (I'll explain ...)


A knob for volume
A double knob for treble and bass
A double knob for medium and EQ which allows you to vary the colors of the distortion
A knob for the level of distortion
It may sound complicated, but you get very quickly!


Do not rely necessarily on its name lil metal planet! Yes, it is typed big sound, but if you push a lil bit of distortion (8:00 for example) it's still very rock. The variety of sounds offered no EQ is quite impressive! The distortion on top of that is relatively warm (nothing to do with MT2). In short it is very versatile, almost as much as DS1, but warmer (this is only my opinion ...). The distortion is well on fat easily if you push the knob a little, do not worry. For distortion, its versatility is quite impressive.


I bought just one week ago and I use it regularly. I was looking for a fairly versatile chaude.Je distortion is not metal, a little hard to the limit and it suits me perfectly. I use it with vintage stuff: an old twin reverb, a 1981 Ibanez artist and strato american vintage 1962. I use it to supplement my tube screamer, for solos sharper but trying to keep a certain subtlety ... In short his part rock'n'roll surprised me and seduced me. For rock, punk or metal, it really does. A try at least!
