"Great rock pedal!!"

Suhr RiotPublished on 08/27/11 at 18:39
Handbuilt in the USA as far as I know, high gain distortion box meant to be a stack in a box. Meaning you can plug this into any small clean tube amp or big clean tube amp and still get a huge usable stack-like sound.

Dist, level and tone knobs with the true bypass switch and also a 3 way mini toggle that shapes the midrange.

Also includes an FX link, so you can remotely control the pedal to turn on or off with other switching devices.

ALSO the LED itself will flash if the battery is draining. How cool is that?

Regular 9v operation, I think my only beef about this pedal is the 3 way midrange toggle, these are basically preset midrange sounds I sort of wish it was a knob so it was......

Regular 9v operation, I think my only beef about this pedal is the 3 way midrange toggle, these are basically preset midrange sounds I sort of wish it was a knob so it was sweepable but that's just my thing.

UTILIZATION

Pretty simple, just like any other normal distortion box! Plug it in, turn the knobs and tweak till it sounds good!

SOUND QUALITY

So how does it sound? Pretty damn good for what it is. This is probably one of, if not the only distortion pedal that actually doesn't sound like a distortion pedal and sounds as close to as amp distortion that I've ever heard. It doesn't sound boxy, or fizzy or ice-picky it sounds thick, big, rich and warm. The dynamics are also all there, if you pick lightly it shows. In terms of distortion it sounds very organic, and very very usable and amp-like.

One thing I want to comment on is the actual type of distortion, what does it sound like? A vintage amp? Or a modern amp? It sounds like a Suhr amp, which I feel tonally, tends to sit in between a vintage and modern sounding amp, leaning a bit more towards a modern sound. So this is where some people may or may not like it. Some players do not like the suhr sound, while others love it. So this is where it was hit or miss with me and I unfortunately do generally prefer a sort of high gain vintage sound and this pedal was not that. That's why I didn't keep it.

But as stated I can understand and respect the tone it delivers and it does still sound amazing compared to regular distortion boxes. This is definitely one of a kind and I can see why it's become so popular. Try adding an overdrive pedal with it and maxing just the level you'll get awesome super metal sounds!!


OVERALL OPINION

Great pedal. One of the best sounding high gain pedals in the market today. Use it with a boost to get yourself into metal territory you're golden. I like how it was intently designed to work with clean amps but I almost wish it was made to work with more, but I'm selfish like that. Otherwise the Riot would've been a near perfect distortion pedal to use for every type of rig out there.

The fact that one can get such a great sounding pedal without needing any tubes or special adapters etc makes it a plus!!

" Very good but expensive"

Suhr RiotPublished on 05/06/13 at 23:33
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Analog bass pedal true-by
Three buttons: volume, drive, tone
1 small switch for three different contours: neutral to left, bumped in the middle (boost mediums), scooped right (medium dug)
FX has a link that allows theoretically enable or disable another pedal at the same time (I am not using this stuff)

Simple and effective. On this kind of pedal, and at this price, I regret that there is no more EQ settings.

Note that the power is Boss type 9V or 18V on the same entrèe: I have not tried the 18V.

Wired by hand in the USA, with serial number handwritten (the claaaaaasssse) comes in a nice cardboard box with a foam that protects well.

UTILIZATION

Well it's very simple, you plug it sounds. All positions provide an excellent sound. The quality is absolutely perfect: quality switches, toggle button without "click", it breathes.
Rather, it draws on the purple, she is very beautiful on a pedalboard.
Its format is mini, ridiculous power consumption which is great: you can l (with a power brick and a power input of Boss-type without worry.
No need for manual obviously.

SOUND QUALITY

So this is where we will discuss a bit.
I am quite clear: it sounds for sure. It can range from mild distortion and clean, with a hi-gain distortion drooling. In fact the "Tone" button is a real tone, ie it makes its own or very open and there it drools a lot.

I will say this is one of the best in the compact class analog. But I can not find her a lamp provided (compared with a Blackstar HT Dual which is a pre-tube amp but weighs 1.2 kg and consumes 22 V).

Matter of taste: it lacks a little low for me and a little compression, so lacks a bit of depth to my ears.

Finally, zero wind, making it a great pedal in terms of game

Here it sounds great but for the price ...

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it because it was one of the most expensive with a compact size, which is important to me. This is probably one of the best in this format.
But strangely, I'm not in love so far despite a very good sound.
I do not know, lack of personality.
Tested on Strat (with humbucker above) and a small amp, I used it a few days and returned because the price / quality ratio is no more than 200 € is too expensive.

I will continue my search for the distortion pedal that will suit me. I've tested the Ibanez Tube King, the Blackstar HT Dual (both excellent but monsters size, weight and power consolidated) Fullbore metal ...
