If you need to go heavier go with the MD-2 . Available from Just Pedals for only £ 88.7 Unique design unique distortion The Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion is somewhat of an odd beast in that it has no clipping section all the distortion comes from a two-stage distortion circuit. Its heavy sound is all thanks to ingenious design features in place of a traditional clipping stage. The capacitors at the input and output of the transistor stage are not polarised enough to function properly with the input/output AC signal so this will likely add distortion along with the emitter follower follower at the output of the stage due to the high level of the signal and its own slight asymmetrical bias. This is on top of the fact that this entire section itself adds some asymmetric distortion thanks to using both PNP and NPN transistors. All these factors combine to generate crossover distortion and give the MD-2 its totally unique sound and distorted tones. Features Produces extreme low-end distortion for modern metal and hard rock Gain Boost circuit creates huge distortion and sustain regardless of level Bottom control offers bottom-heavy distortion matched to 6 and 7-string guitars Tone control adjusts balance between high and low frequencies Specifications General Nominal Input Level: -20 dBu Input Impedance: 1 Mohm Nominal Output Level: -20 dBu Output Impedance: 1 kohm Recommended Load Impedance: 10 kohms or Greater Bypass: Buffered Controls: Gain Boost Distortion Tone/Bottom Level Pedal Switch Indicator: Check Indicator Connectors: 1/4’ Input Jack 1/4’ Output Jack DC in Jack Power Supply: Carbon-Zinc Battery (9 V 6F22) or Alkaline Battery (9 V 6LR61) AC Adaptor (PSA Series: Sold Separately) Current Draw: 18 mA Expected Battery Life Under Continuous Use: Carbon: Approx. 19 Hours Alkaline: Approx. 38 Hours Accessories: Owners Manual Leaflets Carbon-Zinc Battery (9V 6F22) Dimensions Width: 2.875’’ (73 mm) Depth: 5.125’’ (129 mm) Height: 2.375’’ (59 mm) Weight: 0.41kg (15 oz)

  • Boost
  • A “boost” pedal, also known as a “clean boost,” is a type of guitar effects pedal designed to increase the volume of the guitar signal without adding significant distortion or coloration to the tone. Boost pedals are used to amplify the signal level, allowing guitarists to achieve higher volume levels or to push their amplifier into overdrive for increased saturation and sustain.

    Boost pedals typically feature a simple interface with controls for adjusting the level of boost, often represented by a single knob or a toggle switch. When engaged, the boost pedal increases the gain of the signal passing through it, effectively amplifying the sound. Unlike overdrive or distortion pedals, which introduce clipping and saturation to the signal, boost pedals aim to provide a clean and transparent volume increase.

    Boost pedals are versatile tools that can serve various purposes in a guitarist’s rig:

    1. **Volume Boost**: Boost pedals can be used to increase the volume of the guitar signal, allowing players to stand out during solos or to compensate for differences in volume between guitars or pickup settings.

    2. **Overdrive Stacking**: Boost pedals are commonly used to push the front end of an overdrive or distortion pedal, resulting in increased saturation and sustain. By placing the boost pedal before a drive pedal in the signal chain, guitarists can achieve higher levels of gain and distortion without sacrificing clarity or dynamics.

    3. **Amp Pushing**: Boost pedals can also be used to drive the input stage of a tube amplifier harder, causing the amp to naturally overdrive and produce a more saturated and harmonically rich tone. This is particularly useful for guitarists seeking to achieve classic tube amp breakup at lower volume levels.

    4. **Tone Shaping**: Some boost pedals feature EQ controls or tone shaping options, allowing guitarists to tailor the frequency response of their signal. These pedals can be used to boost specific frequencies or to shape the overall tonal characteristics of the guitar sound.

    Overall, boost pedals are essential tools for guitarists looking to enhance their tone, increase volume levels, or drive their amplifier into overdrive for added saturation and sustain. Whether used as a standalone effect or in combination with other pedals, boost pedals offer versatility and flexibility in shaping the guitar sound.

  • Distortion
  • A distortion pedal is a type of guitar effects pedal used to add gain, saturation, and harmonic distortion to the guitar signal, resulting in a more aggressive and gritty tone. Distortion pedals are widely used across various music genres, particularly in rock, metal, punk, and alternative styles, to achieve heavier and more intense guitar tones.

    Here are the key features and functions of a distortion pedal:

    1. **Gain (or Drive)**: The gain control adjusts the amount of distortion applied to the guitar signal. Increasing the gain setting increases the level of saturation and overdrive, resulting in a more distorted and aggressive tone. Lower gain settings produce a cleaner sound with less distortion.

    2. **Tone**: The tone control adjusts the frequency response of the distorted signal, allowing you to tailor the tonal characteristics of the distortion effect. Depending on the pedal, the tone control may boost or cut specific frequency ranges, such as bass, midrange, or treble, to shape the overall sound.

    3. **Level (or Output)**: The level control adjusts the overall output volume of the distorted signal. This allows you to match the level of the distorted signal with the rest of your effects chain or amplifier, ensuring consistent volume levels when engaging the pedal.

    4. **Mode (or Voice)**: Some distortion pedals feature multiple modes or voicings that offer different types of distortion or gain characteristics. These modes may include options such as “Vintage,” “Modern,” or “High Gain,” each providing a distinct tonal flavor and level of saturation.

    Distortion pedals offer several benefits and creative uses for guitarists:

    – **Increased Gain and Sustain**: By adding gain and saturation to the guitar signal, distortion pedals increase the overall volume and sustain of the instrument, allowing notes and chords to ring out longer and with more intensity.

    – **Tonal Shaping**: Distortion pedals often include tone controls that allow you to shape the frequency response of the distorted signal. This allows you to dial in the desired amount of bass, midrange, and treble to suit your playing style and musical preferences.

    – **Emphasis of Harmonics**: Distortion pedals emphasize the harmonics and overtones present in the guitar signal, resulting in a richer, more complex tone with added depth and character. This can make lead lines and solos stand out and cut through the mix more effectively.

    – **Versatility and Flexibility**: Distortion pedals come in a wide range of styles and voicings, from mild overdrive to high-gain distortion. This versatility allows you to choose a pedal that best suits your playing style, musical genre, and tonal preferences.

    Overall, distortion pedals are essential tools for guitarists seeking to achieve heavier, more aggressive, and saturated tones. Whether used subtly to add warmth and edge to clean tones or used more aggressively to create crushing distortion, distortion pedals can enhance your guitar tone and bring new dimensions to your playing.
