A Metal pedal with tons of gain and EQ options galore!

The ModTone MT-EM Extreme Metal pedal is a true-bypass boutique-style effect pedal that delivers insane gain levels that go from subtle to over the top. The 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. ModTone MT-EM's proprietary gain stage lets you sprinkle just a touch of dirt or crank it all the way for a molten metal meltdown!

Features
  • True bypass
  • Level knob
  • Gain knob
  • Dual concentric knobs that control highs, lows, and parametric mids

      Comments about Modtone MT-EM Extreme Metal Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I've played bass for 7 years. I got myself a GT-10b for it and never looked back. I've since started playing guitar, and effects became an early issue. Guitar just doesn't work as well for as long without effects.

      MF had this on sale, so I researched it. From what I saw and heard, I had to get it. When it arrived, I was pleased. My guitarists were jealous. Fantastic sound, great variety (of metal) to be had. I couldn't be happier.

      Except for the darn battery! After a day or two of playing with it (and unplugging it when done), I played it at night and just clicked off the effects when I was done. I didn't unplug it. The next day, dead batteries. I looked it up, and fine, my mistake.

      Even if clicked off, it eats batteries if there's something jacked in. I'd rather the power be tied to whether I have turned the effects on or if I've hit it to bypass, but whatever. And maybe, since it only lasted about 20 hours while on, the batteries were just the cheapos they put in to start.

      Well, changing batteries requires you to unscrew 4 screws on the bottom, take the whole plate off. I stripped one screw in the process. Fine. Plopped in a Duracell, hoped it'd last longer. But after ~20-30 hours of playtime, it's dead. I did find my GT-10b cord works with it, and I'll do that for now on.

      For Modtone, make a plastic door access and change the battery!

      For readers, the bottom line: Difficult battery access. Gig with a power supply, not batteries. But FANTASTIC sound well worth the trouble. Hence, 4/5

        This pedal is cool for the money! is not the best pedal but it will do the job! Modtone need to make they own power adaptor for they pedal not the power supply they are selling right now is too much!

            I own many pedals, and this one is the best one. It is such a great pedal, I looked up all of the pedals offered by modtone, and bought some other ones. I must say, each one has been just as impressive.

            Comments about Modtone MT-EM Extreme Metal Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I'n not a fan of distortion pedals, preferring to get an amp that covers that ground (currently a Peavey 6505) but I like this one. I set this up so that I could switch over from a heavier distortion and get a ACDC sound or even a nice simple crunch. This pedal can do those sounds easy as it can do a much heaver one. It's way more versatile then the name implies.

                    Flexibility Boss (not boss pedal)

                    By Native Wookie

                    from Central New Mexico

                    Comments about Modtone MT-EM Extreme Metal Guitar Effects Pedal:

                    I just got this pedal a few days ago and for the price, the tone and dist. level options make this quite a flexible pedal indeed. Side by side with my Metal Muff....eh..about the same amount of gain, but with a bit more...."something" that perahps come from the mid/scoop dials. that's where this shines. also, I have this placed after a Black Star HT distX (or what ever) pedal and use the tube in that as an ovberdrive boost. with that combo, even muy "el cheapo raven practice amp" can dish out any tone options. If you like to hang on to pedals, you'll keep this one.
