Designed for Pure, Mean, Metal Distortion
The MetalDrive delivers a high-gain distortion that stands up to modern metal music, offering the purest, meanest distortion required. The pedal works well with both bass and guitar, handling drop tuning, 7 string guitars, and 8 string guitars without chocking. As part of the black label series, the MetalDrive is compatible with a range of musical instruments, providing a smooth effect with very little noise, and a fat tone to keep the bottom solid.
Three Modes to Choose From
Along with its two control knobs for distortion and output, the pedal features a 3-way toggle switch to flick between Tubesim, standard, and flat modes. Tubesim activates the pedal’s second tube simulation, adding extra harmonics with extra compression to create a powerful tone with less high end attack. Standard mode bypasses the low end to deliver an excellent bass response, allowing you to create very high gain settings with incredible dynamics for typical tube-like sounds. Flat mode provides a linear gain across the entire audio spectrum, perfect for heavily distorted bass sounds. This mode also produces some fuzz-like sounds when used with a high distortion setting.
The Studio Edition comes with an optimised signal path, and a new signal relay switching technique, enhancing the pedal’s tone quality and signal integrity. The pedal is also protected against over voltage use up to 18V, and offers the possibility to power with anything from 9-12V DC. The aesthetics of the pedal have also been redesigned, delivering a fresh new look.
