Rogue

A massive-sounding floor pedal for rockers.

The Rogue Distortion pedal creates an edgy distortion effect reminiscent of the hard rock tones of the '70s and '80s. It also lets you overdrive your favorite tube amp or solid state amp, creating harmonically rich, sustaining tones.

Three control knobs let you quickly adjust the amount of distortion, high-end bite and overall volume of the effected sound. A true bypass switch engages and disengages the effect. An LED indicator shows you when the effect is engaged and gets dim when it's time to change the battery.

The Rogue Distortion pedal is made of aluminum and built to last.

Features

  • Sturdy, lightweight aluminum case
  • True bypass switching
  • Easy-to-use Gain, Tone and Level controls

    This thing starts with a lot of distortion on the lowest gain setting. My rig squealed like a pig turning the gain more than 3 o'clock. After that it became fuzzy. This is not an overdrive pedal. This is a hard rock distortion pedal. I used an eq and got a very cool metal sound. This will be my new hard rock pedal. I already have a metal pedal. You can seriously use the lowest gain setting and sound good. The tone knob is touchy. A little goes a long way. Tone all the way up will hurt your ears with treble. Tone all the way down and it's like you put a blanket or two on your amp. I leave it at noon. Good construction. Came with a battery. Works on bass too. Check out the Rogue Blues Distortion for a more classic sounding distortion.

    I bought this to repalce a Danelectro Fab Distortion pedal that stopped working. I bought it because it was a low priced option. I figured for the money it couldn't be that bad. I couldn't have been more wrong. This is the noisiest, worst sounding distortion pedal I have ever used. I think I will buy the Danelectro again because the sound is so much better than this Rogue pedal. If your looking for a cheap distortion pedal, avoid spending the money on this pedal.

          I figure it was junk but saw the price and said why not. Have only used it a few times but have had a great time.

                It is perfect for Thin Lizzy and like bands. It is more of a classic distortion sound and I love it for that. A little one directional, but useful for some settings.

                Pretty good for covering old 80s bands but don't expect to get any modern sound out of it. But it's still worth it

                Good distortion pedal, Great for the price of [$] This is a good pedal for any guitarist that wants to add some heat to their sound. I would recommend this pedal for Metal And Hard Rock guitarists. That said, it sounds only good when you turn your anmp up loud. Otherwise you won't get that same feeling if it is on the quiet, low end. Overall: Great buy, nice build, no regrets!

                Is it my go to pedal? No. but..its pretty decent. I play single coil guitars and they sound pretty nice through this pedal. Certainly worth the price I paid. Cool looking, rugged and compact.
                Has exactly what it needs. Nothing more, nothing less.
                Build is solid and it looks cool to boot.

                Rogue Distortion Pedal

                By charles martin

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Rogue Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

                Overall:
                I think I've said it all in the other boxes. Bottom line here is if I broke or lost this one somehow, I would buy the exact same one again for the exact same purpose!
                Features:
                Tone knob: Gives good control over the punch. Better than I expected.

                Gain knob: (like other reviewers have said) It starts out with too much gain. I wish it had lower settings, but still does just what I bought it for.

                Volume: I got more than I expected for the price.

                Switch: When distortion is switched off, you can't tell there's a pedal in the setup. It does better than I expected there too. I'll mention it again in the quality section.
                Quality:
                It's well built. Not the plastic junk you might expect for the price. The switch is firm and feels like it will hold up to my lead foot. I've only had it for 2 months, so the jury is still out. Good marks so far.

                As for the electronics, they suit my purposes fine. I've read the other reviews that complain of noise, so I guess it depends on your use. I do home recordings with my PC, and I haven't had any issue with noise at all. There is some noticable at maxed out gain, but wouldn't that be expected? Maybe in a studio envirnment it's a different story, but I'm very happy with the signal considering my investment.
                Value:
                Here again, it depends on your purpose. If your using the overdrive channel on a lower end amp for distortion, buy this thing quick! There's going to be no comparison or regret.

                If you have other pedals that your going to compare with, this one is for heavy gain. With the gain all the way down, I find myself adjusting the volume on my guitar trying to back it off just a little more, but I enjoy cranking it up and trying to shred over a backing track also. Your not going to be disappointed that you didn't get enough.

                Bottom line here: For the price, you can have a good heavy distortion pedal for home recording or practise. I think that's a steal. Kudos to MF and Rogue!

                Rogue Distortion

                Comments about Rogue Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

                just got the Rogue Distortion pedal today, so the longterm verdict is still out, my two main concerns were the noise and level of gain. yes, it is noisy but certainly not unusable, as far as the gain goes turning down the gain knob gives a decent level of distortion. the only problem so far that i can tell is the noise increases with the gain, but that's true of any distortion or fuzz pedal i've owned. i can say one thing, though, i had a Boss Metal Zone and got rid of it because of the intense distortion, this Rogue is mild compared to that, and that alone makes it a keeper
                standard controls
                usual quality, no plastic(that's good!)
                i've had worse distortion pedals
