Perfect for more than Death Metal
by Matthew Gonzalez from Brown City, MI USAThough the name suggests that the pedal would be used for primarily Death Metal, you can use this baby for pretty much any metal you want! It may only have four knobs but with each turn you go deeper ... read more [+]and deeper into metal perfection. There is no limit to what you can do with this pedal, each combination of turns gives you a whole new type of distortion, though all are fantastically heavy and well rounded. If you can think of a type of metal, this pedal can do it! I've made this thing have violin like sustain and I've had it crunch with the like's of Metallica and Slayer.

Music Background: aspiring musician
Me and friend jam all the time and I'll tell you what, I'm glad this pedal has two outputs, I'll plug into his mixer and my amp at the same time for tonal nirvana, while his mixer is delivering my leads, my amp is there for backup effects, it's like hearing three guitars (because my friend plays one too)! If you are a professional looking for a sinister pedal at a very friendly price, or your a an aspiring musician (like myself) looking for your first pedal to metal out too, you should definately be on the lookout for this one.
I dropped this thing down a flight of stairs (on accident) and you wouldn't have even noticed if you didn't see me drop it. All I know is that if you buy this pedal, be prepared to shred, 'cause this thing is perfect. close [-]

It's good on bass.
by calaverasgrandes from oaklandI picked this up for guitar and it really wasnt my cup of tea. I guess I skew more punk/hardcore in that way. But on bass guitar it is an immense pedal. I suppose becuase lots of death metal guitarist... read more [+]s tune to D or C, so along with the low EQ and my basses active eq getting a solid low end with grind was no prob. close [-]

The Death Metal is mean, evil, and will rip your guitar sound to shreds. I used this pedal for the majority of my band's guitar tracks on our last recording and it was perfect. This is an essential pedal for metal, industrial, thrash, and gothic. We even use this on our bass rig.
