Includes great high-gain settings from the Line 6 HD147 and Vetta II
With Uber Metal you can achieve massive amounts of gain from some of the best Line 6 high-gain tones from HD147 and Vetta II. All you have to do is give the Model switch a flick to reconfigure the Uber Metal to produce one of three distinct gain settings. Use the Level control to hit the amp or effect fed by the Uber Metal with more signal level, giving you more volume. In an instant, Uber Metal can dish out the following settings:

  • Metal - Creates screaming distortion, from heavy grind to molten metal!
  • Pulverize - Gives you a distortion similar to a high-gain tube amp. It's warm and meaty!
  • Insane - Has more skin-peeling gain and sustain than anything else available. For the inner Samurai-shredder in all of us.

Mid and Scoop EQ settings plus Drive and Tone controls
Besides gain levels, the Uber Metal offers more tonal shaping capabilities with Mid and Scoop EQ controls. Mid chooses a frequency from 250Hz to 4kHz. Scoop then removes sound at this frequency, with maximum scoop at the fully clockwise setting. Turn it fully counter-clockwise for a slight mid boost. in addition, Uber Metal's Drive control sets the amount of distortion created within your box. Especially when you've got it set to high, you may need to use the Gate to tame unwanted noise. Bass and Treble knobs keep your low and high frequencies in control.

Dual-function noise gate ranges from soft and mild to heavy and noise-clamping
The Uber Metal includes a three-position Gate control that manages noise no matter whether you want a little or a lot. The Gate 1 selection provides a soft and mild noise gate, self-adjusting to your current Drive knob setting. Gate 2 is a heavy, fast-clamping gate that's great for those aggressive metal chords and palm muting. Or you can disable the Gate with the Off setting.

Line 6 ToneCore quality, versatility and value
The Uber Metal is one of the Line 6 ToneCore pedal series, the new line of modeling stompboxes from Line 6. Each of the pedals in the Tone Core line including Uber Metal include superior Line 6 tone and features, rugged die-cast construction and 9-volt battery operation.

Sweetwater Advice

Ryan Wiltermood

I have been on a quest for many years to find a great guitar distortion pedal that was economical, full of gain, and built like a tank. I have used many distortion pedals that were very satisfactory but the Line 6 ber Metal Pedal has been my favorite. It is a very versatile pedal. I tend to love a distortion that easily brings out harmonics all over the fretboard. I use it on stage and in the studio. This pedal is great for those who want a mild to very aggressive distortion. Some of the bands that use this style of distortion are Chevelle, Sevendust, Bullet for my Valentine, and many others. With the drive knob turned all the way up this pedal is like a smack in the face! One great feature on the ber Metal Pedal is the ability to switch between three distortion types. The types are Metal, Pulverize, and Insane. I tend to use the Metal setting the most, but I like all the distortion sounds. Another great tool is the gate switch which allows you block unwanted feedback. The flexibility of the scoop and mid controls really help you shape your tone. Over all this is a great pedal. I encourage you to try it out. I am sure you will be impressed by the quality Line 6 provides.
