Versatile Zerr pedal

Miles M, 07.07.2017
The Super Metal Mini is nicely compact and fits perfectly on every pedal board. Since it is hardwired with me, it does not bother that you can use it only with power cable.

sound
The many controls make it possible to create very different sounds. Especially in the low-gain range, I like the Zerrverhalten of the pedal, which responds very well to differently loud played notes. The Gain control has everything from a clean boost to a high-gain sound. For the label "Super Metal" I expected more distortion in the high gain range from Ibanez. Other pedals can do better. (That's why 1 star deduction.)

service
The controls are all easy to reach and fine tune. Unfortunately, the white markings on the Punch (bass) and Volume controls are obscured by the Edge and Attack controls when you are in a relatively central position, if you do not look perpendicular to the pedal.
The slightly sloping footswitch is a matter of taste. Actually a great idea, but not optimal, if it is the only one of this kind on a pedalboard. The status LED is easy to see, but in bright daylight it could be a bit lighter for my taste.

Conclusion
I like the basic sound very well, especially for slightly distorted sounds. As usual from Ibanez, the workmanship is top and the price-performance ratio, I think by the many settings also good.

This small is already great!

22.08.2016
Use :
In a pedalboard in addition to a distortion pedal and a crunch.

Characteristics :
Very intuitive, the potentiometers allow to adjust the sound spectrum in a fine way. The big plus is the "Attack" setting which keeps the game dynamics even with high gain. The "Gain" is easily adjustable to the foot.
The size of this Super Metal is also an asset of weight!

His :
For me this pedal is more a precise and sharp overdrive than a heavy and fat disto, in any case I use it as such. With the knob "Gain" between 10 and 15h and the "Attack" high one passes of big sound blues (Hendrix, SRV, Popa Chubby) to the powerful overdrive type Van Halen. The clear sound is always present in the ear, one does not drown in the gain.
In my opinion this pedal has many other resources than Hard Metal.

Manufacturing quality:
Nothing to say for now, the finish is clean, the knob hold the road. Absolutely not cheap. To see in 10 years!
