Comments about Rocktron Third Angel Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

Exactly what you need if your amp doesn't give you that thick thunderous distortion you want for metal and related genres. Unlike other "bad but" pedals, the Third Angel is a no-nonsense no-survivors distortion, you don't need to crank the level to get the chunk you want, it starts heavy and only gets heavier. Durable construction makes this a reliable and great sounding distortion. Theres no "fuzz", there's no "crunch" it's just cut-throat full on distortion.

awesome distortion

Comments about Rocktron Third Angel Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

Great sound with any guitar a litle pricey but a great pedal. infact when i mess around with the control nobs i dont try to see what sounds good, because pretty much everything sounds amazing.
I play anything m=from classic rock to some serious metal stuff like pantera, and preist, and pretty much any other band u could think of and this pedal fits them all
Ive been playing guitar for about four years now, and in that time ive been part of a few bands and Ive always used the same equipment. A Dime 100 wat head with a full stack. Ive always just used the distortion because i just assumed that there was no real didderence between it an a pedal, but i was wrong. I got this because i saw it and a magazine and thpught it looked pretty neat. I got onto this website and checked it out and was troubled to seee that there were no reviews, but i steeel however bought it. I have had it for a couple months now and am very pleased. It gives out a very nice tone and since its true bypass i can just daisy chain it to my amp. I use several guitars, a esp Flyng V which i through 2 emg 81x on back when i was playing lead for band, An esp mh50 with the gfs seymore duncan alnico II retro bridge and neck pickups on it, And a esp mh50 with an emg81x at the bridge and emg 60x at the neck. For all of them i give the same answer, this distortion gives the tone to lay down some shredding rythym, but alson gives you the distortion and scoop to play a devestaing solo. I have also played some cheap guitars like squiers through it and they sound great as well. In my current band im the rhy thym guitarist and the singer and i primarily stick with my mh50's, but my lead guitarist who has A razorback has recentl got on ealso and we sound even better than before.
Holly crap! man this thing is built like a tank
Well when i first saw the no reviews thing i was a litle dismayed but now after having it for this long at still having no problems.. worth every penny
