Extremely versatile, with a great compliment of dials that work WELL. (Having Gain, Drive AND Level on the same stomp is a plus not found on most others.) All dials are very effective with tone-shaping. AMT pedals have some sort cab modelling integrated in the circuitry, but that's not a bad thing ... it sounds rich and full without the sterile digital phoniness of processors. Nice design, with the AC adapter plug on TOP. Foot switch is smooth ... not the typical hard "click". Excellent pedal for tone-scuplting. It works well with tube & SS amp's. Excellent value, given what you get with the design and controls.
I bought this pedal to use on light gain tunes..when I maxed the overdrive & added gain along with it..it sounds amazing..especialy thru a tube amp.It is a saturated type distortion [Alice in Chains]type sound and it's great for heavier type rock as well..you get more than your moneys worth with this pedal..I have at least 12 different type distortion pedals & this is one of my most played and favorites..
For the money, probably the best OD/distortion pedal you can buy. WIDE range of tones ... wider than most anything i've ever played. Having on-board Gain AND Drive makes this pedal ultra-versatile. Extremely responsive to EQ'ing and leveling. AMT's cab emulation is a PLUS ... doesn't sound "processed" in the least; very natural. Put a good tube amp at the end, and this pedal will make you grin. HARD TO FIND AMT PEDALS ... grab it if/when you can. SAVE YOUR $'s on all the rest ... buy AMT.
I recently picked up one of these for free (it was left behind at a gig and no one ever came forward to claim it). It was even brand new, in the box. I guess that's good, because I would have never paid the $120 to buy this new. That being said, it's got a lot of pros and few cons, which I'll get into.First off, don't be fooled by the name, as I was. There is no tube in this! (Sure, there's no tube in a Tube Screamer either, but there's also no graphic of a tube on it to deceive you as there is on the Fatal Tube). Disappointing.Sound- I've always found that different distortion pedals sound good or bad depending on the combination with the amp, which is why I keep about 10 different distortion pedals around. This pedal sounds hollow and muffled with my beloved little Crate Power Block, but sounds glorious with my '66 Ampeg Jet J12-D. I will be trying this with my Ampeg SS150H and my Duoverb soon, just to see. This has different knobs for bass, treble, gain, drive, contour, and level, so it's tweakable 9 ways 'till Sunday.It's pretty sturdy, but I don't know if it's true bypass. In and out jacks are cheap plastic, though.All in all, if you can get one cheap, they're great. If not, skip it, there are way better ways to spend $120. For that money, you could hit up e-bay and pick up a Line 6 Crunchtone, a Digitech Bad Monkey, and an MXR Distortion+, and still have enough left over for a 12 pack of beer to drink while you play with your new pedals!Just my 2 cents.
Definitely a great pedal and it keeps the character of your guitar's tone pretty much intact. Great tube-like tone! I found it a bit noisy at higher gain levels (which overdrive pedal isn't?) so keep a noise gate handy. Has amp modeling. Construction isn't as good a boss pedal, but's it's okay. Footswitch is as soft as silk. Made somewhere in Russia by space program braniacs!You gotta try it, it's great!
I really like this thing. I tune my guitar rather low (C-C) and this pedal sounds deep enough for me, though I'd like more gain (I set DRIVE and GAIN on 3 o'clock or even more). It would be good to have a cab.sim on/off switch or two different outs. It's built well enough 'though I don't like the holes on the sides, 'cause dust might get in. Overall it's rather good for the money.
