High-gain Mayhem Plus Powerful Tone ShapingPut the Mesa/Boogie Throttle Box distortion pedal in front of your amplifier, and get ready for pure rock fury served up with a side of aggression. The Throttle Box specializes in high gain, but you'll find its organic-sounding lower-gain settings to be perfect for blues and classic rock. The Mid-cut control scoops out midrange to give you the signature Boogie V amp sound so many axe slingers have used to create massively heavy guitar tones. And with up to 20dB of signal boost on tap, you'll be able to send your tube amplifier into untamed territory with the Mesa/Boogie Throttle Box distortion pedal.

Wide-ranging distortion is a workhorse for your pedalboard
Metalheads can't deny the instant sonic aggression you get from plugging into the Throttle Box distortion pedal, but the high-gain tones aren't the only flavor this box offers. With selectable low- and high-gain settings, separate tone and mid-cut controls, and extra signal boost via the master level control, there's a lot of ground you can cover. Get to know the Throttle Box, and you'll be dialing in blues, classic rock, and fusion tones before you know it.

The toggle switch inside smoothes out the low end, better for lead tones. but i like the switch on to keep that chunky low end.
We all know how some distortion/overdrive pedals can "feel" fake in tone/sound, but there is nothing but tone to be had with this pedal. I am glad to say this pedal exceeded my expectations. close [-]

by Bob Perrey from ChicagoI've had around a dozen distortion-overdrive pedals over the years, including the Mesa Boogie V-Twin (really a preamp), but none is better or more versatile than this overdrive pedal from Mesa. The Th... read more [+]rottle Box, one of four pedals released by Mesa in late 2012), works with almost any amp of any type, including small, low-powered transistorized amps. Of all the qualities of this pedal, the best is that it is nearly silent, even at highest output. And one can easily switch from bypass to high output with ease in the midst of playing. close [-]
