    Good distortion pedal

    Harley Benton Extreme metalPublished on 07/20/14 at 09:51
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    analog distortion pedal
    3 EQ knobs: acute, medium, low
    3 knobs: nv boost, volume, drive
    9v battery
    NO true bypass

    UTILIZATION

    nothing too complicated but the knobs react to any changes so must go quiet when seeking his sound.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it with multiple guitar (godin, gibson, and ltd)
    it is not a versatile pedal but it is called extreme metal .... well it must have known that this does not have to make annie cordy sauce ... or grind!

    the only thing that bothers me is that the in / out is a reverse of the pluparts other pedals ... this is the case for all Harley Benton are only Joyo rebadgees. So the pedalboard is sometimes a little # $% # $% ^!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a few months but I had used before (the Joyo, not HB .. even if it is the same!)

    The knobs are very reactive and allow numerous variations. Everything noon, like many other distortion pedal, the highs are quite aggressive but just the lower or thwart the boost.
    The mediums are quite narrow frequency range and this knob is for cutting medium and not to boost ca .. although can sometimes be useful as amps! it's really a metal pedal for that!
    bass can become enormous (even unmanageable!) if you push the knob has low background!

    ATTENTION boost the door very badly named because it is very close to a parametric equalizer. It changes the medium and high-pitched, like the Boss Metal Zone. Personally, I put a 9 wholesale. But lowering the acute Lighten it allows the sound without making aggressive.

    the rate of distortion is very high and even with microphones single ca sends no problem! the sound is always very precise.

    Grain of the distortion is pretty dry, precise and "granular" (ca and can become aggressive if you push too much treble). It reminds me a bit of grain in ENGL.

    this pedal likes pretty bright amp like Fender, Laboga. But I tested on a Mesa cab and sent ca also very heavy.

    I also sometimes as utlise than OD with very low drive / or zero. Obviously you need to change guitar (not a scratch too typee metal) and all the settings, but in a marshall cab, it leaves me very good crunch muscles like AC / DC. So a little research we draw enough surpernante things.

    here is some words in a small summary of this pedal. For the price it costs, you will not find better if the grain for you.

    typical but good

    analog, not true bypass, drive-level-bass-mid-treble boost more dedicated to the 2nd switch.

    The mediums are not parametric, it simplifies use.

    Little noise, switching, this is the advantage of buffer.
    FOr the price is perfect, of course.

    UTILIZATION

    Thanks to the media at a fixed frequency is very easy to adjust, not as ticklish as my line6 ubermetal not possible.
    Frequencies of the equalizer are well chosen, no joke.
    The boost sends a lot of midrange and treble when it clicks and a higher output level adjustable. Very effective for solos.

    Therefore gain available but progressive (not a fender amp eh ...), and the nature of the distortion (probably two or three fl…

    The boost sends a lot of midrange and treble when it clicks and a higher output level adjustable. Very effective for solos.

    Therefore gain available but progressive (not a fender amp eh ...), and the nature of the distortion (probably two or three floors) implies not be afraid to turn up the gain so that the sound appears.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The texture is fine and precise. The color is like the line6 ubermetal, quite dark and metallic (...).
    It's fast and flawless so at work buddies ...
    With the sound opens boost significantly, it pushes forward very sharp, the solos are well defined and going very well in the mix. Big difference when we go back in rhythm.

    In fact apart from a few different mediums (less quack) this pedal is very similar to the grunge digitech we see or ride harley went ...

    I really tested both and I confess a preference for grunge, more organic less metal.

    Both pedals behave the same with microphones, namely the bridge going great but when we pass on the neck becomes his reluctant, not clear at all. With two microphones set it collapses completely, and I tested with several scratch.

    Therefore not versatile, unless you play everything (as in, nu metal, doom metal, thrash hardcore metal dark age ...)

    For ad hoc style that's all good, no lizard

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been about 6 months that I get excited over, and it is not easy to marry on my vox ac15c1 I must have the boost pedal all the time if it goes not engaged.
    Earphones (mixing desk via HP simultaneous analog and fx studio) is very nice because its mids are not recessed snack candy. Akg k240df, not really linear either, so take with a pinch of salt.

    A good product, well-typed and very usable with a little attention.
    For the price it is perfect.
