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

        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.

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

                I have this pedal after my SD-1 and DS-1. The order is obvious. The signal is boosted one after the other, so I end up with a good range of overdrive/distortion in my pedalboard. I do not play heavy metal but the Modtone pedal offers a wide range of crunchy sounds, and EQ as well (with the stack knobs). You can also get a nice ZZTop sound. This is an excellent pedal not only for metal, but for blues and classic rock as well. This is true bypass and does not suck the tone. I play hollow and semi-hollow body guitars with a Vox all tube amp. Like any gain pedal, it will generate some noise, but not a big deal. Once you start playing, it will put a smile on your face. It appears that Modtone is doing a good job so far.

                Best distortion pedal, period.

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

                I've tried multiple distortion pedals out there for the "extreme" end of the spectrum. The Boss Metal Zone, the Digitech, the works. I've never run into anything this versatile, this powerful, and just plain awesome sounding.I've played this piped through both a cheap 15 watt Fender amp and a Presonus Firepod into a DAW, and in both cases its force was incredible, let alone the one time I heard it through a big old Marshall monster. The bypass feature is also great, since it means when the pedal's off you don't get any noise. Do you play metal? GET THIS. End of story. Better than any of the others.
