Electro Harmonix Metal Muff

Take the sound of the Big Muff up a notch with the Metal Muff distortion pedal. With 3-band EQ and footswitchable Top Boost, it's a headbanger's best friend.

Step up and stomp down on the Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff distortion pedal for some awesome metal-voiced distortion. This metal-infused Big Muff features three-band EQ, a boost switch for leads, a top boost for sharp and edgy output, volume, and distortion level controls. You'll have all bases covered regarding the tonal dimensions of your signal -- plus, both the bypass and boost switches have an easy-to-read engaged/disengaged light so you'll always know when your axe is fueled with crushing metal mayhem. Whether you're playing leads or rhythm, this pedal is a great companion for the stage or the recording studio.

Electro-Harmonix Distortion: Mild to Wild

Electro-Harmonix is known for producing distortion pedals that pretty much run the gamut of dynamic and irresistible distortion. The Metal Muff distortion pedal follows the Big Muff, while adding the extra distorted push you're looking for. Turn up the volume, add in a little bass, and bring the distortion level all the way down to zero to get light distorted sound that responds well to your axe. Crank up the distortion to its maximum level, and you'll get what is essentially the shredder's dream.

Shaping Your Sonic Signature

The control dials on your Metal Muff distortion pedal feature volume, top boost, bass, middle, treble, and distortion level controls. Three-band EQ controls give you plenty of room to shape the brightness, darkness, and midrange punch of your signal. If that isn't enough, crank the top boost dial up if you want your sound to get a little more edgy to cut through the mix.

Convenient Boost Switch for Licks and Leads

If you're in the middle of your set and you feel that you need an extra push, your Metal Muff distortion pedal utilizes a convenient boost switch on the bottom left corner. Both the bypass and boost switches feature an easy-to-see red light to let you know when each switch is engaged/disengaged.

The Buffered Bypass Advantage

There can be a lot of hype around getting a pedal that uses a true-bypass configuration. Many guitarists don't realize that much of the unwanted noise that invades their signal can often be due to using excessively long instrument cables. A buffered bypass configuration takes care of this issue, so your signal won't lose any high-end frequency if you tend to use long cables during your set or recording session. Fire your guitar through this pedal, and let your axe and amplifier do the talking.
