    I played this pedal today in the new local guitar store, and they were charging a hundred bucks for it. I decided to check out musicians friend because i've ordered all of my stuff from here... and good thing too. I've decided that for fifty dollars, this pedal is absolutely worth it. The boost adds some serious bass end to it, perfect for chunky metallica like riffs that i play: and id also like to add that this thing is built for solos. I tried all sorts of combos, and i got a great AC/DC distortion when i turned the gain down a bit and messed with the tone and warp. I then cranked the disto, dropped a little tone and warp, and discovered a metallica like distortion, and then changing the warp just a little bit, i got Zakk wylde's sounds out of it. I'm purchasing it immediately after i finish writing this review: Nu metal sucks, but this pedal is a monster distortion pedal, and i thing that for fifty dollars, its worth EVERY penny. I have a digitech RP200A, and i bought that stupid pedal to be able to switch between Distortion and cleans while i played and sang and solo'd, and let me tell you, this pedal beats it out. Thanks Musicians Friend.

    This is a fairly bass-heavy distortion pedal with relatively limited tonal adjustment; the only tone pot is for mid-cut profile and there is a low-end boost in/out switch -- which is certainly not needed. As a consequence this pedal, like most other heavy distortion pedals, turns harmonically complex chords to mud and loses musical clarity. It does sound "big" and will impress some young players using power chords and drop-D as it does this primitive and limited sound well.It's not well-finished, including some jack misalignments that make the supplied AC adapter hard to plug in.There are numerous complaints here about the switch, but the switch is not in fact the rugged Carling-type unit it cosmetically resembles from the outside, but merely a button with a spring on it that activates the usual cheap microswitch mounted on the PCB.In the pedal's favor is the included 9VAC adapter. The pedal does not use batteries and will not work with the typical stompbox DC outboard power supply.

    I've been playing metal for 40 years!

    Pros

    • No Bad Sounds

    Cons

    • Too Big

    Best Uses

    • 80~'~~s Metal
    • Metallica

    It just sounds great. It matters little where the knobs are set, it still sounds great. You won't find that with a Metal Zone or vintage Marshall Shred Master. Those pedals you have to finely tune to find the sweet spot or they sound bad. The Warp Factor sounds good no matter where it's set. It's so easy to get a great sound out of it.
    And it sounds good loud! The Metal Zone sounds bad loud.
    It's versatile! From Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Alice In Chains and of course Metallica, it can do it all very well.
    I own a multitude of effects, and am always very well pleased with this one.

    Need A NOISE LIMITER to work well

    By METALman HARDCORE THRASHER

    from L.A. California

    Recently, I was on tour with a side project band and my metal zone BOSS pedal was chucked through a club window by a man who had a little too much to drink. So I borrowed my other guitarist's pedal for the rest of the show. afterwords, I knew I needed a new pedal but I was low on dough. So I order this nu-metal distortion pedal off the internet hoping it would be good enough to last until I had the money to buy a new pedal. Its awesome, it has a very crunchy grundge tone and sortof a chorus effect too. Just one word of advice; GEt a limiter! Otherwise your amp will screech loudly and make unpleasant noices...

    Amazingly disappointed

    By Bumbletooth

    from Tennessee

    I bought this thinking it is was the heaviest pedal ever... all I got was a pedal that is good for a paper weight, if even that. I am extremely pickey about tone and the quality that comes out of my line 6 Spider 2... I couldn't make this pedal sound good with even an EQ in front AND behind it- I would suggest that if you are going to invest in an inexpensive distortion to go with the Line 6 Uber Metal- It may cost more, but it sounds like nothing else...

    It still rules

    By DaveMan-pZgfi

    from Metal, Alabama

    Many people have trashed this pedal: I don't know why. I've owned mine for more than 2 years and it continues to amaze me. It has usable gain from barely overdriven to heavy, infinite sustain, it keeps note definition and clarity when loud, and it is dead quiet. I play through 2 2x12 sealed back cabs with Celestion G12K100's, so power handling and bass reproduction are not a problem. I do not use overwound pickups. If you have a high powered hybrid or all tube amp, you might want to give this pedal a try. Versatile gain, bass boost, and presence knob in a sturdy package, dead quiet and its on sale. If you've got a 15 watt soild state combo with a single 10", you might want to pass it by.

    This pedal's okay. I bought it for a gig, but it just made my amp squeak like crazy. Okay for starters.

    I put this thing infront of a VK 100 watter. It really blew me away. It has awesome distortionand even an it even overdrives at the same time.It picks up the harmonics like crazy. I noticedthat the on/off switch feels weak compared to MXRpedals...but one thing is for sure..The thing is Br00taL!!!

    Metalcore utility

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    It's the best metal pedal ever. If you play some heavy stuff, you can't find a better distortion pedal. I'm using it with my Esp Eclipse guitar, which has Emg 81 and 60, the pedal gives such a heavy distortion sound which I bet you did't heard unless you play with a Boggie. H&K doesn't have a bad product!

    Crap

    By unplugged203

    from Lubbock, TX

    I got this as a gift when i first started playing, and during the first week it was pretty good. The major problem with it is that the on/off switch sucks, it has a very hollowed out sound to it, and unless you're play 20bpm, striking single notes, you can't distinguish whats being played.

    Its Deep and Dirty

    By Who, Me?

    from Portland,Or

    This guy is all about the bottom end. I bought this to use with my little H & K 15 watt amp so that I could switch clean to distorted with my foot. Got it on sale and didn't expect too much. When I plugged it in I was impressed with how much body it gave my sound. I would say its a bit weak on the treble and high mids. Also the foot switch kinda sucks. If this had a better foot switch it would probably become a classic with certain crowds. Oh, also, this thing can't even come close to my Mesa Recto-Verb in tone, so don't think you are going to get that Mesa punch with this. Over all, if you want massive low end grind, this one is a decent choice.
