High Gain Heaven, and Flexible like a Gymnast.
by Ryan Johansen from Auckland, New ZealandFirst off, this pedal has the best EQ section of ANY distortion pedal. It gives you a lot of flexibility in tone which makes it great for tracking guitars without becoming muddy.

There is a lo... read more [+]t of gain, even on low settings but it isn't overpowering. You can get some great medium gain rock tones with this pedal (not classic rock, more modern rock)as well as a monstrous amount of ear piercing gain.
The top boost is great for solos. It allows your solos to really cut through.
I really love this pedal for lead guitar (without top boost on). It's got a lot more balls than most distortion pedals and the EQ can make it cut through without losing its' fullness.
It's built tough and feels like it'd take a lot of stage abuse. A great pedal. close [-]
Fantastic Distortion Pedal
by Greg Peet from CaliforniaI was searching for a pure-analog distortion pedal and came across this gem right after it was released. I've never had any experiences with EHX products until this point. I originally didn't want to ... read more [+]try it or like it, since it wasn't true bypass, but sometimes you need buffered pedals in your chain to bring the signal back up. It's buffering is actually very clean and slightly fattens single coils after passing. I run this through a Mesa Express 5:50 with a strat mostly, and wanted something to give me an "urgent, hairy-on-the-brink-of-metal-distortion." Imagine a great metal band that does the rare classic rock cover (Opeth's Bridge of Sighs as an example). This fits the bill for anything Judas Priest, Maiden, up to Slayer and Entombed.

I glanced at the circuit and it looks like 3 Big Muff Pi's cascaded with a linked EQ. I do build pedals as a hobby and have of course tackled the muff clones in variations, and am VERY surprised that these 3 create such a believable 80's/90's metal sound.
The features in brief. There is a Top Boost footswitch for kicking in a mid-high EQ boost. You're control over it is just one knob for volume increase. It's usable but there are better things for that. The EQ will however blow you away. The 3 available pots control a WIDE decibel range, up as well as down. If you roll the mids all the way down and keep the rest at noon, you have that overly-abused Slipknot/Disturbed kind of nu-metal thing. If you put mids at half and roll bass down and treble at 10-o'clock with distortion at 2, you get that 80's hair metal thing. Very, very versatile. For analog, the price is damn good! close [-]
