Available from Just Pedals for only £ 85 Iconic Distortion Legendary amongst musicians and engineers in the industry the MXR M104 pedal is one of the most iconic distortion pedals to ever be manufactured. This reputation is well earned through tone alone rather than just celebrity endorsement. And that tone is ferocious. The hard clipping gives a thicker fuzzier tone than your average distortion pedal. The germanium diodes used to create this hard knee clipping also give a richer timbre to the sound and add slight compression to round off your tone nicely. Finally the c5 capacitor filters out the harsh high harmonic content making sure the tone is never shrill or treble-heavy; this means youre guaranteed a warm rounded tone with as much grit as you see fit. Output and Distortion Controls Keeping it simple. The two-knob layout makes dialling in a range of distorted tones quick and easy. Output simply sets your level so the volume of the distorted signal. Distortion is self-explanatory and sets the level of gain and the intensity of clipping. But while the controls may be simple you can still access a diverse range of distorted tones. Instantly rise above any mix. The general frequency response and the mid hump at 1.5kHz was specifically designed so once engaged youll punch through any ensemble even with the Distortion control cranked into fuzzy heaven.

  • 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.
