Finally - THE BEST GUITAR Pedal !

By Swingshifter

from New England

This pedal is the greatest thing I've heard since I stopped luggin' my Marshall Plexi Stack. It has "bell like" slapback rockabilly to British (in your face)arena rock charm.

The wasabi distorion pedal from danelectro

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This pedal really kicks ham. I went to the local music store here in San Francisco and i was going to get the MT 2. By sheer chance I noticed a sale the Wasabi Dist. I was floored at the price, anyway i plugged it into a fender strat and it was over it gave me everything from crunch to Blck sabath to Ac dc to guns and roses i really like the little slapback echo gimmick they have in the battery compartment it really toughens up leads and your rhythim. I know this is not the MOTHER OF ALL METAL PEDALS but so what i got it for 30 bones and it rocks. I guess the MT2 with that overprocessed sound will have to sit in the backburner for a while. Oh, did i mention the sustain?.

kick butt pedal!

By Scott Sinner (dont forget it)

from Watchung, NJ

It's got everything from a pickup selector to a 10db boost. 5 different distortions plus an EQ make this pedal a screamin demon for metal or a solid crunch for rock.

Useful Pedal

By DudefromHotLicks

from Ohio

This pedal is on my board all the time. It gives me a boost pedal, and a heavy distortion at the same time. Distortion tones are not great, but they're pretty good. Cool pedal.


Versatile, but also unuseable.

Just a quick note: this pedal is quite versatile, and has all the gain you could want (a la FabTone). However, it gets very very noisy at high gain settings, or ANY setting with the bass rolled up over 12 O'Clock... which for recording purposes makes the pedal unuseable. Sounds like constant whooshing of white noise when you're not playing. I own a Fabtone as well, and it's dead quiet compared to the AX-1! Anyway, I was very dissappointed with the pedal- clean up the noise problem and it would be killer!


A decent pedal

By Chicago, IL

from Chicago, IL

See all my reviews

The wasabi distortion pedal has some very good features, such as optional boost, toning, pickup utilization, wetness balancing, and some very well done EQ distortion. It is very similar to the Digitech X-series' Hot Rod pedal, but the wasabi is generally more flexible, albeit slightly harder to use. it is a surprisingly well done pedal, but it is well worth the purpose.
