    Comments about Danelectro Cool Cat Series CM-1 Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal is a must have for the B.A.M.(broke A double S musician). The price scared me quite frankly. Cheap usually equals junk. This thing changed my mind. It has a FULL metal casing and a real footswitch, not that frikken miniswitch you find in the digitechs. I has just the right amount of gain for my style of music(kinda like killswitch except more bottom heavy) and you don't seem to lose any tone when you adjust the gain down. it does lack a little in the mids but for me it's perfect. Overall i would say it fits my needs and has quenched my appetite for a pedal. 1st one i've tried that i would like to stick with.

      Wanted something that was similar to high end Metal Distortion pedals. It comes pretty close. Hard to beat the price/sound factor.

      Comments about Danelectro Cool Cat Series CM-1 Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Overall, This is a high gain/ lower gain pedal. On the box it says,"It's more than just metal". I've decided to use it for lower gain sounds; and use my Metal Zone for higher gain sounds. Why? Because the middle knob does not change the character like the Boss MT-2 does. It's a very usuable pedal, tweek and tweek and you'll get close to your sound.
      The features are are a little more than most. The Cool Cat Metal 1 has stacked pots for 3 eqs like the Boss Metal Zone; with gain & volume of course. So, a little more eq options I guess.
      The quality of the build of this distortion pedal is very solid. Danelectros metal casing and metal jack imputs seem really SOLID. I'd gig with it without a back up. We'll discuss the sound quality later.
      IMO the Cool Cat Metal 1 (which I like better than the version 2) the value is excellent. I think it is an option to buying the Boss Metal Zone (which is awesome) Available at half the price is important to many people.

      As a metal pedal it makes a great overdrive

      Comments about Danelectro Cool Cat Series CM-1 Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      My "Overall" rating is slightly lower because I just can't seem to get a really good shred tone from this box, no matter how I tweak it. Great for heavy, crunchy rythyms... has tons of bass output and more volume than you will need... just doesn't offer enough touch sensitivity for fast lead bits, for my tastes... just feels kind of slow and mushy.

      The primary way I use it is as sort of an overdrive (with the gain all the way down) after my fab metal pedal... the cool cat metal adds a nice warmth and overall weight to the sound and is a great compliment to the fab metal's screaming harmonics.
      Gain, Volume, and separate Bass, Mid and Treble controls... all good. The stacked knobs can be difficult to work with, though. Changing the volume on the fly is nearly impossible without messing up your bass setting... not so good.
      Solid. No issues here. All metal casing, quality knobs and foot switch, battery compartment isolated from internal circuitry.
      For the money you get a very versatile and solidly built dirt box. Can easily get tones ranging from blues to metal (albeit not the last word in metal, in my opinion).

      Comments about Danelectro Cool Cat Series CM-1 Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I just got this pedal and compared it to my marshall mg10s distortion and it distorted more!The only bad side is that if you use it on the od channel it starts screeching.
