OVERVIEW

A thrasher's dream distortion with unmatched ferocity and surprising versatility.

Tap into a world of high-gain riffage with Fangs Metal Distortion and its super versatile set of tone tools that let you sculpt your sonic onslaught to perfection. From ultra-tight thrash tones to thick walls of doom metal distortion, you’ll find it all here and then some in this highly affordable pedal that’s ready to slay the stage!

All The Gain
Let’s be honest, you’re not here looking for a nice transparent overdrive or a bluesy crunch. If you are, you must have taken a wrong turn down by the Tubescreamers at isle 14. No no no, you want the gain, all the gain and nothing but the gain! Fangs Metal Distortion delivers that in spades. So whether you’re looking for tight and raunchy rhythm tones ala Metallica or searing Slayer-esque solo sounds, you will be able to get there in no time with Fangs Metal Distortion’s ultra-tight and bone crushing gain structure.

Take Control Of Your Tone
A guitar lives and dies by the mid-frequencies, and when it comes to metal the mids are more important than ever. That’s why Fangs Metal Distortion offers a versatile mid-frequency selector plus individual bass and treble controls, so you can go from raw classic metal tones to scooped nu-metal and all the way to super-beefy sludge metal tones with the flick of a switch.

Heaviness Distilled
Fangs Metal Distortion is a ferocious tone monster, but we’ve managed to contain the sonic brutality in a compact enclosure that’s built like a tank, while outfitting it with top-mounted jacks for a hassle-free implementation on your board. Now add true bypass to the mix, so the beast only takes over your tone when you need it to, and you got a great starting point for your metal mastery.

Backstage Pass – All Access
The metal monster lives! Let’s have a look at how to tame it.

Got Gain?
Unleash your inner beast, and go from a growl to a roar with this knob

Get Loud!
How loud do you want it? Exactly, LOUD! You can of course dial it counter-clockwise if you want to stay friends with your neighbors and family, but where’ the fun in that?

The Magic’s In The Middle
Choose between three finely tuned mid-frequency settings and get instant access to everything from thrash, groove and nu-metal tones.

Bass Brutality
Looking for some crushing low-end tones? This beast has a ton of it. Crank it for supreme bottom-heavy riffs or smoothed out solos, or dial it back to thin out your tone, if you don’t feel like picking another battle with your bass player today.

Looking For Treble?
If you’re playing an axe and amp combination that doesn’t offer up enough treble, or offer up too much, you can use this to sculpt your high-end tone, so you’ll sit perfectly in the mix every time.

FEATURES
  • Ultra-thick high-gain distortion tones w. super tight response
  • Versatile mid-control
  • True bypass and top-mounted I/O

Fangs distortion is an over the top distortion pedal with the heaviest useable distortion = to Mesa Throttle Box. It works best in the fat mode with 3 channel tube and hybrid amps, also sounds great thru solid state amps. Best distortion pedal for the price. C Caution does not sound great on all tube amps with out a noise gate. It sounds very heavy but gets microphonic under tones on two channel tube heads. Bottom line, its a fun pedal! One last point if you flip the scoop switch on, turn the volume down you can add a little fuzz at the end of your amps natural distortion in OD1 or OD2.

This pedal was really fun when I first go it.it does get a very heavy sound. This pedal does not sound great with every ., and bottom line is that this pedal sounds like a pedal , it does not blend, it colors the sound of your amp and since my first review I rarely use it. For a Mesa sound my go to pedal is a JoYo extreme metal, for a heavy Marshall sound I use a Moen violent metal pedal. For Insane heavy I use a Biyang metal end king. The guy that uses the metal end in the Jet City JDM 100 review is correct. Use the metal end to overdrive the crunch channel of the Jet City hdm100, and you will have a sick heavy awesomeness that will match up to any amp. I have 5 amp heads 2 Marshalls, a Peavey, a B52AT100(awesome) and a Jet City Hdm100h w/ Ruby Mstr6L6 . The Jet City with fangs pedal- (good) with the Metal End - ultimate Metal Experience!.

      I got this pedal to use for lead work, utilizing my neck pickup. It is just the tone I was hoping for, for long lasting sweet sustain. Great pedal for the $$. Very well built.

            Incredible value for the money. I moved into an apartment and can't turn my tube amp up loud anymore. Needed something to get distortion at super low volume. I have my little Vox 4 watt amp on 2, completely clean, then kick this Bad Larry on and it's ripping! Versatile sounds too, the scoop/fat/raw setting is super useful. Great price point for the quality.

                  Although I haven't played professionally for several years, I still know a good piece of equipment when I check it out. I think that one would be hard pressed to find a better sounding pedal in this price range and there's enough overdrive for pretty much anything. The real surprise is that it has the versatility to clean up very well allowing the tone of your guitar to shine through in a natural manner for blues/rock etc. where you'd just like a little clip going on. I haven't had this pedal long enough to attest to the reliability on down the road, but am very happy with it performance wise at this time.

                            I've been playing in bands & home recording for roughly 25 years... Probably more actually. Anyway, this pedal does get a decent of sound. It can also get a tube-like distortion. I love the scooped crunch from it. I've had Boss metal pedals & a plethora of others. This is by far my favorite metal pedal I've ever owned. TC Electronics is extremely underrated.

                                For 50 federal reserve credits this is an amazing pedal and for the sale price of 35 this is the best deal on the planet. I like the sound on teh mid and scooped switch settings. Make my marshal roar and cleans up better than i thought with volume rolled off. Highly recommend for the price
