You get 3 signature sounds (Mesa, Fender, Marshall), 3 mod types and 3 speaker placement choices and it works great direct or as a distortion box, so in this regard this pedal is like a swiss army knife for studio work.However, the build is very cheap - thin metal enclosure with holes on the side allowing water and moisture to seep in, plastic 1/4 in. connectors. It all sounds good on paper until you compare the build with one of the other pedals from the competition - Sansamp for example build it twice as strong, Blackstar and Radial build them even stronger. Mine took a hit during transportation and it is "game over" for the DT-2 unless I can find the spare parts to fix it. Great pedal but AMT needs to take a hint from Boss, Digitech and other industry leaders a build them to last. If the Siberian Space program makes them so brittle I am surprised they even make it during liftoff.
This thing is absolutely amazing sounding! It's definitely modeled after a similar pedal by a well known company, but I think it sounds even better than the pedal it is modeled after. If you want thick, warm distortion with great sustain and a good "feel" then this is a great choice. Heck - I even recorded guitar for a professionally released CD using this pedal through a Red Box cabinet simulator direct into Pro Tools and have gotten many compliments on how great the guitar tone is.
After a long time on the backorder list and seeing it drop from the catalog completely I am happy to finally own one. Many times sound samples are misleading in comparison to what you actually get through your own rig but this is certainly not true here. Go and check out the sound clips, I fell in love with them and only hoped I would get a similar sound but man are they dead on. All 3 amp modes sound sweet and the 3 wiring mods in tandem with the drive control dish out clean to mega saturation with minimal noise. Actually considering the level of saturation the noise is so nominal its not worth complaining about. The mic switch offers even further takes on all the sounds and really do take on the characteristic of the setting you choose. I am using it in front of a tube amp and also to do some tracks on my computer with. If your in a situation where getting a quiet room to mic isn't an option this beats the heck out of some of the VST plug-ins I have used in the past without sacrificing processor cycles. It is a bit pricier than an entry level pedal but for what you getting its money well spent. If you consider what some other hand built pedals run one might even call this a steal. The only thing I might have done differently if I was playing live with it is cough up the extra cash for the programable counterpart. I hope this helps anyone stuck on the fence about whether or not to get an AMT product. Peace.
Sounds really good. Very versatile and I almost kept it but there is a weird fizzing sound that you can hear when the sound is trailing off. I don't know what it is but it really annoyed me. So I had to send it back.
