The Ultimate Metal Pedal!

Rivera's Metal Shaman guitar distortion and overdrive effects pedal captures the essence of a modern high-gain guitar tube amp and delivers it to you in the form of a truly comprehensive stompbox. Even if you're a diehard metal tone aficionado, you'd probably feel fine about running your Metal Shaman directly into the PA - but when you hook it up to your favorite amp, the sheer brutality of this awesome pedal will blow you away. Speaking of brutality, the Metal Shaman gives you a ton of excellent tone-shaping tools, including a 3-band EQ, a noise gate, a footswitchable harmonic boost, and a unique Brutality control. Keep reading to find out why Rivera's Metal Shaman overdrive pedal is such a hit at Sweetwater.

Rivera Metal Shaman Guitar Distortion/Overdrive Effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • Turn up the brutality to add space and dimension to your guitar tone
  • Disintegrate control adds rich harmonics and epic gain to your solos
  • Onboard noise gate section lets you lay on the gain, without kicking up the noise
Turn up the brutality to add space and dimension to your guitar tone

Creating the perfect high-gain metal tone for any given guitar and amplifier combination can be a serious challenge. That's why Rivera equipped their Metal Shaman pedal with a massive range of tone controls. In addition to a truly impressive 3-band EQ (perfect for scooping and broad-strokes tone shaping), the Metal Shaman features a 2-way Brutality toggle. Engage the Brutality toggle, and your tone instantly becomes fatter, with a added bottom end and a much bigger acoustic image. It's the perfect way to take you tone from seriously focused to larger than life, making even the most severely scooped high-gain tone cut through the mix.

Disintegrate control adds rich harmonics and epic gain to your solos

If you imagine that the Metal Shaman was a full guitar amplifier, instead of stompbox effect, then its Disintegrate control more or less plays the part of a Class A clean boost placed right before the preamp. Not only does the Disintegrate control give you a whopping gain boost (perfect for taking your tone into overdrive nirvana), but it also adds a particularly intense harmonics boost to you sound. When it comes to soaring solo tone, you just can't beat the Rivera Metal Shaman guitar pedal.

Onboard noise gate section lets you lay on the gain, without kicking up the noise

No matter how epic the tone, once you push your gain beyond a certain limit, things are bound to get a little bit noisy. Lucky for you, Rivera built an excellent noise gate into their Metal Shaman overdrive pedal. With the Metal Shaman's noise gate engaged, you can feel free to crank up the gain, without running the risk of ruining your sound with hiss or mangling your performance.

Rivera Metal Shaman Guitar Distortion/Overdrive Effects Pedal Features:
  • The ultimate guitar distortion/overdrive pedal for high-gain metal tone
  • Rugged, simple, easy-to-use effects pedal that gives you a ton of tone-shaping options
  • 3-band equalizer allows you to sculpt you tone however you like
  • Brutality control toggle provides you with a switchable bottom-end boost and added sonic depth
  • Switchable noise gate lets you crank up the gain, without infecting your tone with nasty hiss or hum
  • Disintegrate footswitch provides you with an extra gain and harmonics boost that's perfect for soloing
  • True bypass switching preserves your guitar tone when not in use
  • Built tough and made to last for years
When it comes to metal tone, nothing comes close to the Rivera Metal Shaman guitar distortion and overdrive pedal!
