OVERVIEW

Obese, megalithic, dynamic distortion!

The Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box lets you achieve a variety of results within the same setting depending on the manner and force of your pick attack with the Warp control. The median Warp point produces traditional distortion ideal for chords and rhythm parts, while the extreme settings work well with individual notes, making them smoother, fatter, thicker, and juicier. Medium settings produce an overdrive similar to a Class A tube amp. The Warp control works by manipulating the structure and balance of odd and even harmonics and influencing their relativity to the dynamics of your instrument and your playing style. A very musical tone control shifts the center frequency of the high cut from 10kH to 1kH, which maintains the midrange without getting muddy. Optional DC2 power supply (see accessory box on this page) or 9V battery (not included) operation.

Great Effect Once You Know How To Use It

By Kaij Emig

from NY

Comments about Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box with Warp:

This effect is great for guitar players and bass players. I'm a guitar player, however my friend used it on his bass and it really boosted the sound. The sound of the effect for my Ibanez GRGA32 can range anywhere from bland, to an extreme overdrive. It has given me a similar tone as Disturbed's Dan Donegan. It really is a great effect and is best used with something in Drop-D or lower for metal fans. Blues players it works excellently in standard tuning. I use the "Warp" setting half the time depending on what I'm playing. If you are looking for a hard, crunch-like metal sound, then I wouldn't use the warp, if you are looking for a warmer sound, then turn the "Warp" setting up. It runs really great with my Marshall amp. It may not seem as good as other effects like Metal Muff or others similar to that, but it's truly worth the purchase.

XXL

Comments about Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box with Warp:

Depends on what sound your going for I guess but I leave this pedal on all the time and roll back the volume on my guitar for cleans and come back up for more drive...this pedal responds to that just right for me! I have the drive & warp set about 1 o'clock and the volume and tone about 10 o'clock. If you want really high gain, this pedal might not be for you, but if you like to control things right from your guitar and not have to "pedal dance" the XXL works great (even through solid state amps).

Not for me

By Rob-T1IIN

from Columbia, SC

Comments about Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box with Warp:

I was so excited after reading all the reviews about receiving this pedal. I was looking for something a little better to replace the amp distortion I have on my Marshall mg100hdfx (solid state). This pedal at least for me gave me a bland, really bassy overdrive and bluesy sound. No matter which combination or which way I turned the knobs, I always got that same weak overdriven sound. I'm not totally sure if it was just my pedal or if this was what I was supposed to expect, but I was extremely disappointed..

Superb

By Arthur Taylor

from Los Angeles

Comments about Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box with Warp:

I own three of these units. I run them in series and experiment with clean boost and drive levels, and the tone of my Gibson SG Les Paul w/EMG 85 Active Humbucking Pickups (three of them) just comes alive. The warp adds an almost Variac-type quality to the sustain and tone. Tech 21, Alesis, and Zoom will get your tone out of the dirt and into the batter's box. I also recommend the Tech 21 American Woman Overdrive pedal for a smooth sustaining sound that just won't quit, and sings longer than any Big Muff could ever dream of doing. the XXL gets top billing across the board.

XXL Pedal

Ask me a question

Comments about Tech 21 XXL Guitar Edition Overdrive Stomp Box with Warp:

This is a fun pedal to use! I'm currently plugging into a solid state amp with nice results...much better than the icky distortion on the amp! Probably not a great pedal for thrash, metal or other super high gain players, while there's plenty of distortion available with this pedal, it's better suited for blues or classic rock (zep,zz,ac/dc). The warp control takes some getting used to...I finally figured out that if I back off the drive and increase the warp, I get a nice fat, singing distortion...very tube like (for not a lot of cash). I recommend starting with the knobs all at 12 o'clock (except the level..maybe at 11 o'clock) and adjust to taste. It may take some tweaking but it's worth it!
