This Effects Pedal Serves Distortion Warm and Mild, or Spicy with a Bite!

Turbo Distortion Pedal gives you two turbo modes: warm and mild with flat frequency response, or screaming and hard with mid-boost! You choose - this pedal does both beautifully! The built-in remote jack allows you to connect an external footswitch (like the FS-5L) for instant, hands-free switching between modes.

The Perfect Distortion!!

I was looking for a great distortion pedal and I finally found it! This pedal is great for blues, grunge, rock, hard-rock and can even dip into metal. I love the Turbo I & II setting. The Turbo I setting is a lot like a DS-1, but the Turbo II pushes up the mids and makes the distortion more gritty which is great for punk and alternative music. Hands-down this is my favorite distortion pedal on the marked. Get yours at Sweatwater today!!!


This pedal is just freakin awesome. I got it a few weeks ago and i've been getting really good Red Hot Chili Peppers sounds out of it. One thing i gotta say is BUY THE ADAPTER. It really eats through batteries quick. I've already gone through 4 and I've only had it 3 weeks

Great pedal for rock!!

This is the best pedal for playing rock music. Anyone who plays guitar should have one of these. I am able to produce virtually any kind of distortion with this pedal. Many famous guitarists use this pedal on their pedalboard. Joe Walsh, John Frusciante, and many others rely on this pedal for their main distortion. However, I would not recommend just this pedal for death metal. If you wanted to play death metal with this, I would suggest a Boss Super Overdrive pedal to put in front of this. The Super OD is available here on Sweetwater. I use this pedal to play pretty much anything. If you are questioning yourself about buying this pedal, go ahead and buy it. You will not be sorry.
