"Its saturated tones make for effortless palm-muted riffing and legato"

With an extreme scoop to the mids, mammoth low end and mucho gain - its saturated tones make for effortless palm-muted riffing and legato.

But while it sounds great for a spot of bedroom Dimebag riffing, the pedal could struggle in a live band mix.

Also, unlike some other metal distortion pedals, there's no way to adjust the scoop, since the tone control adjusts only the high frequencies.
