Amt Electronics DM-3 Distortion Machine
For those who know no amp, such GT2, the pedals is quite familire:
Three types of distortion: Mesa (Calif.), Marshall (brit) and Fender (tweed)
Three types of gain: clean (yes, finally it is a distortion even when, right), high gain and hot wired (high gain even more!)
Three types of micro position: off axis (off-axis of hp), center (center bah. ..) and classic (I know too much, I think it's the dcentr to the edge of hp .. but?)
Two types of noise gate: an "off" position, one that cuts 4.3khz, and the 3.5 khz

4 rotary knobs rglage notched endless level, low, high and drive.
The position of the knob is indicated by LEDs.

Analog full price for the sound BUT, the little "plus" AMT:
The DM3 possde rpart 16 patches in four banks to safeguard your rglages prfrs by a clever footwork and hands, because there are two switches and buttons are rglages "squeeze". The PDAL is a multi-purpose vritable fate of distortion.

otherwise, an input and output jacks
a 9v AC adapter jack (warning, it takes a lot of amprage, 700 of my memory, I believe, I recommend the adapter of the brand, I come back later ...)


In terms of handling, it is better to have read the manouel (English only) and keep proximity to beginners. There are so many buttons you know what to do. I remember my rcption small package, plug proudly that I was waiting for LA distortion, saying: "Aha, I'll rgler this case my friend, the sound is killer me! " And then actually I started tinkering bazaars, has flickered across more and worse way to much: balls! "The whole case is, my pedals !!!... sob!"
But actually, no. Phew.
The ide is that by combining the 6 push buttons, there are actions diffrent as: trigger the effect (the two switches at the same time), bypass, change custom settings of sound ( ex: type of gain), copy, save, undo, insert, reset. I think that's all.
And it turns out that when you change a sound, you can not pass another patch to save less than what we have to hack or "undo". "AAAAAAh, but it is marked in the manouel !!!!!!!... Videm". Holding down the switches in the power, we chose the change mode patch: Following type: A1, A2, A3, A4, B1, B2, etc.. or by bank: slctionner the bank, then the new patch while the former is still active and enable the new patch.
As a, aa look complicated but you get it done quickly and well thought out and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">trs trs</span> practice. As a multi-purpose, what!

These small dtails Intgr, the rest is as usual &#39;: + I ride the gain, gain + I, + I mount the volume, + is strong, incredibly, not ? ...

I recommend using a sound that we like and well xplorer by grinding this basis the (thank you copy function!)

go, 9 Paske I was afraid to beginners ...


And the bin is strong. trs fort. is the distortion. and even the distortion. It prcis, musical, warm (if that distortion can be warm), runny or clear (your choice). I would add the famous formula: "the grain of the guitar is respect ahll Yeah, but it&#39;s true.

WARNING! It&#39;s not empty-empty rgler, I prviens now! Especially since the possibilities are truly many trs! The pots are super efficient, the simulations are really ralistes types and is not a joke. I think we find the sound you&#39;re looking at a distortion. I insist, is a <span style="text-decoration: underline;">distortion,</span> not an overdrive.
The simulation is very nice Fender, you get a little sound is deep compress approaching a crunch just cradoc pushing the gain. I play on a silver face twin or a Prosonic, a good ... is not worth the original or it might not be the sound that I like. . M&#39;enfin the purpose of this is not the pedals I think (it&#39;s a DISTO, DIS-TO, not fender!).
The simulation is more than high mesa friendly, there is the BIG sound that hard. I never really on the mesa jou, if not a TriAxis I test a long time ago, but we believe it. It&#39;s not synthetic and well articulated. There a good seed.
My preferences goes to marshall type distortion (what, me, a fan of Fender? Bah so, Marshall has done for and it&#39;s better than Fender). I find a trsraliste and dynamic, it does not feel that this is an pedals.

In short, you get everything you want from the disto lgre sputtering eights fill the heavy artillery of that big win with big Czech drooling or very low Aiges hyper sharp .

I use two guitars with radically diffrent: a Les Paul Custom and a vintage Start. Thanks to the patches, I was able to make sounds suitable for two instrumentals and the type of game (solo, rhythm, pressure cooker, etc.).. Rsolument and has the serious matter (especially in groups).
I am using almost no way of "hot wired", not that it sounds bad, but not like me, it tout.c eastern trs heavy.

So the only thing sucks: there&#39;s a good ronflte when even when you push the gain mode highgain or worst "hot wired" (say, more than half for Marsall, + the third mesa). Well, I did not have the correct adapter too, since I tested the adapter with AMT and yes arduit noise. I&#39;ll order it (go, 30 more!).

added 17/09/07: ay is! I have the adapter that goes: arduit partiedu a good problem, phew, and it&#39;s not 30 but 25.

I put 8 for the simulation Fender that I was not too Strongly believes (I confess that I did not try too hard in this direction, the Fender, I dj and snoring (especially single coils ) but I will keep my life because the marshall distortion, it dboite, I believe it!

edit 12/09: Finally, we feel that even when one pedals. I took it out of my pedal board, trs is sharp and cuts a little too in a fender.


I use it for 2 months, I bought during a trip to Stazunis (and I&#39;m glad I pay less than in France). Because otherwise it&#39;s expensive. Would I do that despite the price? May be. But I tried other models. I had no one to amp GT2 era for one year. And memory, I prfre the sound of the amt. More opportunities and fantastic grain. No doubt, it&#39;s a good p. ... no pedals! APRS, my neighbor, he will not sound better with other pedals? may be too, but that there in sr is that if I have no sound with this kind of stuff, boy was that a can not be my fault!

Small bet Caution: during the 1st use, is mfier volume. Some factory presets are strong, strong trs. &#39;AMT home are crazy or what? I almost lost an ear!

edit 12/09: Sounds a little too "clinical" following the long and the amp can get a little loud.

Amt Electronics DM-3 Distortion Machine
Distortion pedal which incorporates the settings SansAmp GT2, plus some other small, + memorize them.
The pedal is analog with a digital backup of the settings, too strong guys.

For a pedal is very complete. May miss the stereo output (but what good would it do to a distortion hahaha?)


Simple configuration
Button type of amp: Tweed, California, Britain, to name the unnamed Fender, Marshall and Mesa (or other high gain)
After choosing clean, hi gain or wired for hot juice harder and harder.
In short, it's simple, we try and if you like, save it
And if we were wrong, we can start as many times as you want. I tell you are strong.
It has two more buttons to change the sound, but here I do not understand the logic, I do not consider myself to enough. It changes the sound in any case, but less drastic, I would say more to refine.


Many possibilities of sound, is not to say. Certainly what I've heard more convincing to go out without the sound Marshall Marshall.
Fender sounds can range from more neutral than bright, attention the hair cream, it's mind-blowing.
Hi gain sounds are very typical Big Sound. For those who love or like me for fun, we can make the wholesale spot.

Attention to the background noise on large distos and with single coils anyway: lovin 'scare of the time, I feel that 747 of the company AirLarsen will arise in my living room.
But it gives the impression that it might even make a scene actually quite usable. Like what ...
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Edit of 22/10/2009</span>
After moult in our tests of connection repeats amp, a Vox AC30, impossible to have a good sound. Highs come from all sides, very strident, even with the treble knob to the minimum and the bass to max. I will make a final attempt directly dansle return effects loop, but if it works any better, it will not end up in rehearsal.
Too bad, so it made yet on my Mesa ...


I have a few weeks / months
I have not been around but I use it to give extra punch to the chorus parts. It does it very well, regardless of the selected emulation.
I like the sounds, backups reminds the foot, the simplicity of operation: my feet go there quite easily.
It complements very well my Maxon OD-9 that it remains in the register much more classic. With the AMT, you can go out into the big time, and badly out of the mix.
It's quite expensive (about € 240 if I remember correctly, Paris), but it seems solid built there. But the variety of possible sounds, ultimately it is not so expensive.

For now, a purchase that I do not regret it. Maybe I'll leave it at home to local recurrence.
Next step, see what a bass plugged in there may well give!

ahhh if one regret: it is in Russia and we all know how they manage to steal all the good deals these guys: damn spies. But the WTO does!

<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Edit of 22/10/2009</span>
Beware, the sound is much depend on the amp that you plug the little beast.
Mesa on my home, it does really well, but on our Vox in rehearsal, it's a honeycomb rabid unusable.
In short, test before buying ...
