[Musikmesse] Carl Martin Hellsgate
Carl Martin will introduce the Hellsgate distortion pedal at Musikmesse.
The pedal/preamp features 3 Band EQ, separate Mid-Scoop, switchable Noise Gate and 15db boost, as well as Gain and Level. The controls are designed to provide a responsive bottom end.
According to CM, Hellsgate is designed to solve another problem that plagues the touring and fly-in artist who has to deal with backline amps that may or may not produce their sound. Carl Martin say they consulted with Heavy Metal guitar friends and found that the Power Sections of most amplifiers are more consistent in sound than the preamps. Therefore, plugging the Hellsgate into the loop return allows you to use the amplifier’s Power Section, and your own preamp, so you will achieve your sound at every gig, according to the company.
