The Roar...

18.03.2015
A friend of mine recomended me the Blowtorch just to try. I was never a fan of using a distortion effect with bass. My exeperince with the effect on a bass was always bad. Of the sound became fuzzy or unrealistic or the sound lost the clearity,....But, when I tried my friends Blowtorch, I was instantly on Thomann buying it for myself.

The effect offers you diffrent kinds of tone managment. You can use it for diffrent styles of music, from Rock to Metal or you can use it just as a EQ for diffrent types of the song. I use it as distortion on a bass for several songs and I use it as boost/EQ in chorus.

The sound is great. It offers a wide option of sound managment and it is a must buy.

Name is program: the BlowTorch bl ...

SebastianA, 30.01.2010
The BlowTorch is really the hammer when you look for Zerr sounds for his bass.

The processing of the BlowTorch is as with all MXR effect devices without blame. A brushed metal case whose "tread" is highlighted by a yellow-orange warning. A blue LED indicates the operating status. A slightly recessed slider, which allows a mid-lift on three different frequencies. In the semi-circle, we find a total of six potentiometers, on the axles of which there are tried and tested and well-grip knobs.

In addition to gain (volume) and volume (volume output), there is a 3-band EQ (bass, midrange, treble). For midrange, there is an additional slide, where you can select from three frequencies the influencing one. The sixth reger is the blend control, which can be adjusted infinitely, how much effect or how much original signal is desired in the sound. Finally, there is a switch on the housing side, which provides a stronger intensity of the torn.

Thanks to the well thought-out arrangement of this switch, even with the use of the BlowTorch you can boost your sound with a light pressure of the shoe side. By the two outputs (Thru, Ouput) you have the possibility to put your unaltered original sound on a different channel (or another amp ...) as the effect sound, which is not only available in the studio.

And to the sound: You always get a good sound, even with extreme EQ settings. This pedal is nice. The BlowTorch fits well with almost every music style, thanks to its wide range of distortions (... without prejudice from nice warm over lightly torn to the brutal Metalhammer ...).

Absolutely the best!
