Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff Distortion Pedal
Electro-Harmonix spent many months creating what we believe to be the best heavy metal pedal ever built. The Metal Muff utilizes three powerful EQ bands, including a midrange control designed for perfect contouring.
Along with beautifully sculpted mids, the Metal Muff offers commanding bass and defined top endcoupled with user-controlled distortion from pinched-edge to totally crushingn++making it a heavy metal gold mine.
- Knob controls include Distortion, Bass, Midrange, Treble, Top Boost and Output volume.
- The unique Top Boost knob allows you to dial in frequencies that center between 3.5 kHz and 4.3 kHz. Add to the edge of a solo or define a powerful rhythm with a single touch of the Metal Muff's dedicated Top Boost footswitch.
- The Bass has 14 dB of gain centered at 120 Hz; the Midrange has 15 dB of gain centered around 300 Hz; and the Treble has 10dB of gain centered around 1.2 kHz. Distortion has 10 dB of Gain while the output volume has a full 18dB of gain. All controls were designed to interact together for maximum cutting edge and a uniquely powerful distortion.
- Buffered Bypass.
- The Metal Muff provides an awesome array of alloys ranging from slithering mercury to molten slag, lead belly to blast furnace dross. Push your pedal to the METAL.
Great pedal if you are after thick saturated fuzz with a crispness to it. Keep the volume on the pedal low and use your amp for volume.
Genuinely impressed with this. It’s my first toe dip into Electro-Harmonix products. In a market that is so over saturated with pedals and effects I’m so glad I chose this. Doesn’t sound like a box of wasps. You can adapt it to suit your need. Not seen many reviews that refer to the lead guitar aspects of this but it is crisp and clear and with the booster it just pushes the mix a little more with out destroying the sound. Solid 9/10
