Today while I was poking around the inter-webbie, I was thinking to myself that I need to look at other distortion tones that I normally do NOT use for the sake of the diverse readership here. One area that I was thinking was ‘metal’. I’m not much of a metal player (I definitely had my share of listening to it in the past, and I do like on occasion some choice metal riffage in my face at a show), but I came across a pretty cool pedal for getting that high gain and ‘tight’ distortion. The pedal I want to present is the Extreme Metal pedal by ModTone.
Here is the official description:
The ModTone Extreme Metal pedal is a true bypass boutique style pedal that delivers insane gain levels that go from subtle to over the top. Our specialized “scoop” knob covers plenty of metal territory while leaving all the articulate definition intact. Adjusting the “Low” knob gives any amp that ground shaking low end thump while the “High” knob lets you dial in just the right amount of top end sweetness. Our proprietary gain stage lets you sprinkle just a touch of dirt or crank it all the way for a molten metal meltdown!
Here is a great video demo of the pedal by gearmandude (I really appreciate this guy’s reviews on pedals. Shows what they can do and has some variety with guitars and amps).
You can pick this pedal up at TunnelVisionMusic.com and it’s currently on sale for $79.95.
