Create your ideal tone with versatile distortion and tone controls

Calling upon his many years of being a world-class amplifier designer (including many high-gain amps), Bruce Egnater has created the Black Metal Distortion Pedal. This extremely touch-responsive pedal's Volume, Gain, and tone controls let you dial in everything from slightly dirty to high-gain distortion tones. The built-in Gate is perfect for tight rhythm tracks and precise singel-note runs. And you can easily tweak your low end with Egnater's signature Tight switch. The Egnater Black Metal Distortion Pedal is a tone-sculpting, distortion generator of epic proportions.

Separate Mid function sends your tone over the top

Beyond flexible distortion and tone sculpting options, the Egnater Black Metal Distortion Pedal includes a robust Mid pedal. This unique section, straight from Egnater's Armageddon amplifier, lets you tweak the critical midrange of your signal. Whether you boost or cut the mids, you'll find a new tone waiting at the touch of a footswitch. Dial in the perfect rhythm scoop or boost the mids for a solo that really cuts through the mix. Sweetwater guitarists have found that between the mid and distortion functions, you can create an incredibly diverse stable of tones with the Egnater Black Metal.

This pedal plays friendly with any pedalboard

The ruggedly built Egnater Black Metal Distortion Pedal is housed in a heavy-duty zinc enclosure and built with premium components. Black Metal also has a built-in low battery indicator so you know when it's time to change the battery, and if you don't change it out in time, the pedal will place itself in bypass mode so it won't kill your signal.

Egnater Black Metal Distortion Pedal Features:
  • Dual-function distortion and mid cut/boost pedal with powerful tone-sculpting controls
  • Aggressive distortion tone are perfect for all genres of metal
  • Built-in gate is ideal for heavy rhythm parts
  • Footswitchable Mid section lets you boost or cut critical midrange tones
  • Low battery monitor alerts you to a low battery and will put the pedal in bypass if the battery is too low
  • Rugged zinc enclosure
Add a double dose of tonal bliss to your pedalboard with the Egnater Black Metal Distortion Pedal!

Egnator Black Metal Dist

Very good sounding high gain, mp like feel and response, not surprising coming from Egnator. I was impressed by the quality of the enclosure, component quality and this is a fairly large box in this rather rmini pedal world, nice to have something that has substance and some weight to it. Inside is not a hollow box of diodes but 3 boards loaded with goodies. While there might be some high gains more intense than this, it has a very good low end bass response. and the highs are not overtly brittle or fizzy. I have had some bad souding high gains, this is not one, sure to become a popular lins of pedals. The mid allows severe scooping or boosted mids with a level to add level or hold it when cutting mids. The 2 stage gate is responsive and does well, for me I liked it off and had no real nosie issues at all. Also preferred the tight switch off as the unit has a very good full and heavy tone spectrum which I liked a lot. For $200 a very good pedal. I am pondering the other two as well. If you want real face melting high gain I'd opt for the Wampler Triple Wreck but this is a great sounding high gain.
