Truly solid and truly metal

Magnus W., 05.03.2014
Right, so, for those who like to play metal with rapid progressions, perhaps in low tuning (I use Elexir 012-068 in C std, very sharp attack) with thick strings and multiband compression, and find that they need a complement or replacement for that slow tube drive (good as they may be, they are slow by design) should at least buy one of these and try it out. Where pedals as the BOSS ML2 can only do one sound and all guitars sound the same (it do have its uses) the Solid metal builds on the tone in your guitar and makes them sound thick, punchy and singing (organic almost). Moving from low tones to high ones in sequence displays it ability to cover the entire scope of a guitar. I bought it because Keith Merrow informally endorses it, didn't expect much (my eyes was on a different pedal at the time) but have now ceased my manic search for the perfect metal distortion pedal. I still use my tube drive in many contexts but this pedal is so fast and high fidelity that I sometimes use a MXR Super badass to soften it out, or for a plain EQ boost tube screamer style, (zero distortion setting).

And its solid by design as well, could probably use it as a weapon if the crowd storms the scene :P

Great pedal and great sound

Carlos., 06.10.2013
In fact the "solid metal" palmer pedal has dazzled me with its great sound.
The pedal is constructed entirely of metal except the 9v battery compartment. (As is normal (* you can also use a 9V power supply if you do not want to use the batteries)), which gives a lot of security when it comes to handling it without fear of being broken. The system of activation / deactivation of the pedal is a metal button very comfortable at the same time that common that does not give any problem of failure of activation or anything.
To the sound that this pedal can offer I can only get "one hit" (to call it somehow) and it is not versatile to vary in genres, that is, you will not be able to play a light tone of distortion in the style of blues-rock thing that I do not dislike but that other people can throw back when it comes to buying it, but inside the metal, hard rock and other similar derivatives offers a great variety of tones and sounds thanks to all the drivers that has (low, high, distortion, volume, mid, mid freq.) and that has impressed me.
Another point in favor of this pedal is that it is not excessively expensive and of course the price-quality ratio is incredible, a luxury.
In conclusion, if you want to look for a hard distortion for your guitar and at the same time look for your own original sound, this pedal will be an ideal and quite affordable purchase.
