Eight bands of distortion.
Designed by Todd Wolfgram, Malekko is very happy to release our all-analog Wolftone Sloika pedal. Featuring locally powdered and screen-printed enclosures, each pedal is built with optimal components meticulously selected from all corners of the globe.
Sloika is a unique distortion pedal utilizing multiple bands of distortion to simulate multiple amplifiers set at different gain levels. Capable of very heavy distortion, the Sloika (like all Wolftone pedals) is extremely musical and very responsive to a player's dynamics.
Sloika is designed to create a transparent distortion allowing you to retain the sound of your guitar and amp. This pedal will not mask your equipment's tone. Single or humbucking pickups are still clearly heard and articulated and you can easily modulate between light or heavy distortion using picking dynamics. Very sensitive to input levels, Sloika allows you to control the amount of distortion from your guitar.
Want a clean sound? Just back off the guitar's volume. Searing distortion is just a matter of playing harder or cranking the guitar volume. And Sloika enables a seamless transition from distortion into clean when you play a full chord and let it sustain.
The Sloika is a combination of 8 parallel distortion bands. The interaction between the Drive and Saturate settings determines how these bands effect your sound. To really hear the strengths of this pedal, use a loud, clean amp.
Heavy wall distortion. Order today.
When the Drive is low, the first band is at 100% gain, and subsequent bands have progressively less gain, allowing maximum reactive distortion through dynamics.
At a mid Drive setting, the first band is at 100% gain, and the remaining 7 bands have decreasing gain stages down to about 90% for the lowest band.
At max Drive setting, all bands are at 100% gain, giving you a hard wall of distortion.
When Saturate is set low, the lowest bands will drop out of distortion earlier, allowing the guitar to become clean quicker.
With Saturate at a higher setting, the distortion is clear and biting.
Turning Saturate all the way up creates a softer attack with a full-on distortion feel, and a much longer distortion sustain.

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Wolftone Sloika MKII Guitar Distortion Pedal:
Before I bought this pedal, I learned that the Sloika was designed so that the player could focus more on the playing rather than what's happening in the pedals. This didn't really give me much to expect but when I got it and tried it out, I understood exactly what that meant. This distortion is killer. Your fingers just ache to play more after each note. The sustain is incredible. It is so smooth and pleasing to the ears (to mine at least). There is no tone control so I would suggest to tweak with your amp or EQ pedal if you don't like the Sloika's color.
I usually prefer pedals with more versatility and options (3-Band EQ, Tone control, big/small switches, etc.) but with tone like this, I can't complain.
What is really unfortunate is that there aren't enough high quality videos of this pedal to really know what it's like before buying it.
