Pignose Distortion pedal

By John Govreau

from Midwest hell hole

Comments about Pignose Detonator S.P. Distortion/Power Boost Pedal:

Good build quality, fair price and awsome distortion sound. It can go from a very mild sound to an extreme hard driven crunch.
I bought this pedal to try something different. The pedal itself is ugly as hell, but once plugged in it makes up it with an awsome distortion sound.
Good solid built pedal.
Average cost for a good pedal. Musicians Friend had an additional 10% off so it was worth it.

This Little Piggy went ROAR all the way home

By Littleman777

from New Market, Maryland

Comments about Pignose Detonator S.P. Distortion/Power Boost Pedal:

Well lets see here it is true bypass for starters, so there is no tone loss. it has 2 footswitches one for the bypass and one which switches from overdrive to distortion. when the switch is pressed to distortion, it puts the gain to max and ignores the intensity (gain) knob. the volume is very touchy especially with the distortion mode. it has a very nice box with a brown tolex covering like an amp. it wont scratch up as easily as most pedals which is also nice. as for the actual sound i would say in the cleaner od mode it has from an od tube sound to a higher gain blues. i would describe the boost channel as a rock/blues with a long sustain. it is not quite as fuzzy as a big muff pi, but there is a fuzz to the sound. i don't think it works too well itself as a metal sound, but it does have a good amount of gain and could be paired with a EQ to give it more of a metal sound. it is a nice overall pedal, capable of most sounds you could want. if you are good at using the volume and tone on your guitar, you can get even more out of it. do be careful with the volume, because it gets loud quickly. i wish the knobs were a little stiffer so they wouldn't move so easily. it would also be nice to have an adjustment for volume in the boost mode, so with the gain increase you can handle it better. but using a volume pedal takes care of it as well. there is no light on this one but you should have no problems knowing if it is on or not. the only reason the features are short of a perfect is because there is no tone, no volume control for boost mode (an independent control) and no light. works very well though.

Big sound in a little box

By Vegas Wilhelm

from Las Vegas

Comments about Pignose Detonator S.P. Distortion/Power Boost Pedal:

This heavy duty stomp box has two pignose shaped controls, one for intensity and one for volume. It has "Extra Snort" and "Bypass" foot buttons. The bypass is "true" bypass so you don't lose any treble when it is switched off. The Extra Snort button takes it from an overdriven sound to a full blown distortion. The ads and instructions tell you to be careful using the Extra Snort feature as you could blow out you amp and when you hear it it's easy to believe that you could. The regular overdrive setting gives a nice rockin-blues sound that is driven up quickly with turns on the intensity knob. Hit the Extra Snort botton for screaming (and I mean SCREAMING) leads. My only critiques are the input and output jacks go in left and out right so it is opposite to my wah pedal, etc. I understand that in the future units will be right to left. The other critique is that a LED light would be nice. However, I have read that it has something to do with the true bypass feature and I'll take the bypass over the light. All in all a great pedal at a reasonable price.
