yoTrakkz's review"great distortion"

Artec SE-DDB Duo Drive Blender
This is a distortion/fuzz pedal for guitars. It is an analog pedal made by Artec, a lesser-known company with an excellent reputation amongst those in the know. There are two 1/4" connections, input and output. There are no midi or computer editing capabilities and the pedal is not rackable.


This pedal has four knobs (drive, volume, tone, and boost) and has two switches (one for the effect itself, the other for the boost feature). Utilizing this pedal is really easy, and in fact, it is probably one of more awesome pedals to use live that I've encountered. This mainly has to do with the boost feature, which, combined with a fantastic sounding distortion, is quite useful in a live scenario. I often find myself wishing for a boost of some type when using my big muff, as it's loud but doesn't always ring out over the sound of the instruments. This pedal solves that problem quite nicely.


This pedal has a fantastic sound. There is a phenomenal amount of distortion with this box. The levels range from a reasonably heavy, classic-rock type sound, to a full on sonic assault. Combine that with the boost feature and you have a fantastically capable pedal. This pedal is capable of heavy distortions for ringing out chords, blistering leads, as well as lighter distortions as well. I wouldn't recommend it as an overdrive as it tends to usually be just too heavy for that. The distortion is comparable to the big muff, but with more flexibility and an added boost feature.


I like the great sound of the distortion this box provides, as well as the boost feature. At $200 it's really pricey, but it will probably be able to replace one, if not two of the pedals in your board. This is a truly fantastic pedal that will hold up well over the years. I'd recommend using it with some humbucking guitars like a Les Paul or a PRS. It also tends to sound better with a Marshall-style tube amp than a brighter Fender one.

What are the effects or types of effects available? Distortion / drive type crunch or distortion type sr heavy and well, the pedals intrt this is to shuffled ( "blender") both! large knobs are trs good quality and keep their rglages no problem. the two may be small but well doss also be more accessible would have won.
What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...): it seems that it is analog ...

the manufacturing quality is top notch. against by the "pedals" is a system that push button to "click" a bit noisy.


Configuration gnrale Is it easy? Super simple: the tone halfway, the level of 3 (the neighbors) and 100% depending on the mood crunch with a cap, shorts and a binder of coli or 100% heavy with long hair and black everywhere crunch 90% +30% for heavy rock and much Dfine sent! in fact, it's extremely simple and your exact shuffled trs always makes good.
The edition of sound effects or is it easy? Yes
The manual is clear and sufficient? Uh, what manual? is a booklet entitled pub the other pedals, but all fawns, there is no need to book.


The effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes? Yes right!
Which instruments do you use? A lag roxane gauchre 100, team of 2 humbuckers.
What are those you prfrez, you dtest? The crunch trs is similar to that of the necklace (and without effort so), the sound is heavy Dfine ( the bourrinage is possible in the lower even if it is not my cup of tea) and is frankly awful in the acute (satriani. ..)


How long have you use it? 1 week
What is the particular feature you like best and least? Like all she can do
Have you tried many other models before acqurir? A behringer to100, a behringer DM100, a AX3G (I know, I accumulate), but the view and a Previous turn me on youtube convinced of the quality of the object.
How do you report qualitprix? 37 at Thomann. that price was the real sounds two typs well as can be shuffled and the two ... yes, really is the report qualitprix
Exprience with, you will do again this choice? Yes, without hsiter. besides, I m'intresse artec other since!

pedal all that is classic, but with an overdrive and distortion combined


no worries when TO USER is classic. The buttons overdrive / distortion are just not very practical, but not really a problem ....


I use a les paul and a laney vc15. I am not at all satisfied with this product. The overdrive and distortion generated a lot of sharp actually. The use of tone does not really improve things, not enough staff to correct. So disappointed.


I possess many other models, carl martin plexitone, biyang metal end, like a TS808, a Danelectro CoolDrive ....
I also have the compressor brand Artec: I adore.
I hate this pedal because of this ultra sharp, very difficult to correct (not the button tone of the pedal). Not really I go my way
