Pedalboard distortion pedals

This table describes the distortion effects pedals.

Stompbox

Description

Candy Fuzz

A bright, “nasty” distortion effect.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Drive knob: Set the input gain.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Double Dragon

A deluxe distortion effect.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Drive knob: Set the amount of saturation applied to the input signal.

  • Tone knob: Set the cutoff frequency.

  • Squash knob: Set the threshold for the internal compression circuit.

  • Contour knob: Set the amount of nonlinear distortion applied to the signal.

  • Mix knob: Set the ratio between the source and distorted signals.

  • Bright/Fat switch: Choose between two fixed high shelving filter frequencies.

Fuzz Machine

An American “fuzz” distortion effect.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Fuzz knob: Set the input gain.

  • Tone knob: Increase treble, while simultaneously reducing low frequencies, as you move it to higher values.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Grinder

Grinder is a lo-fi dirty “metal” distortion.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Grind knob: Set the amount of drive applied to the input signal.

  • Filter knob: Make the sound harsher and more crunchy at higher values.

  • Full/Scoop switch: Choose between two fixed Gain/Q filter settings. At the Full position, filtering is less pronounced than at the Scoop position.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Grit

A hard and nasty filtered distortion effect that sounds great on keyboards and guitars.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Volume knob: Set the amount of drive applied to the input signal.

  • Filter knob: Make the sound harsher and more crunchy at higher values.

  • Distortion knob: Set the amount of drive applied to the output signal.

Happy Face Fuzz

A softer, full-sounding distortion effect.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Fuzz knob: Set the amount of saturation applied to the input signal.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Hi-Drive

An overdrive effect that can emphasize high frequency content in the signal.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Treble/Full switch: Set a fixed shelving frequency, allowing either the treble portion or the full range input signal to be processed.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Monster Fuzz

A saturated, slightly harsh distortion.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Roar knob: Set the amount of gain applied to the input signal.

  • Growl knob: Set the amount of saturation.

  • Tone knob: Set the overall color of the distortion. Higher values increase treble with a corresponding decrease in overall volume.

  • Texture knob: Smooth or roughen the distortion.

  • Grain knob: Set the amount of nonlinear distortion applied to the signal.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Octafuzz

A fat fuzz effect that can deliver a soft, saturated distortion.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Fuzz knob: Set the amount of gain applied to the input signal.

  • Tone knob: Set the cutoff frequency of the highpass filter.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output level.

Rawk! Distortion

A metal/hard rock distortion effect.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Crunch knob: Set the amount of saturation applied to the input signal.

  • Tone knob: Set the tonal color. High values are brighter.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output gain level.

Tube Burner

A vacuum tube-based distortion that provides a wide palette of sounds, ranging from warm grain to crispy overdrive.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Low knob: Set the low frequency cutoff.

  • Mid knob: Set the mid frequency cutoff.

  • Mid Gain knob: Set the mid frequency level. This affects all frequencies in the range between the Low and High knob values.

  • High knob: Set the high frequency cutoff.

  • Fat switch: Set at the top position to enhance low frequency content in the signal.

  • Tone knob: Set the tonal color. High values are harsher.

  • Bias knob: Adjust to add or avoid crossover distortion.

  • Squash knob: Set the threshold for the internal compression circuit.

  • Drive knob: Set the amount of saturation applied to the signal pre-output.

  • Output knob: Set the effect output gain level.

Vintage Drive

Overdrive effect that emulates the distortion produced by a field-effect transistor (FET), commonly used in solid-state amplifiers. When saturated, FETs generate a warmer sounding distortion than bipolar transistors, such as those emulated by Grinder.

  • On/Off switch: Enable/disable the pedal.

  • Drive knob: Set the amount of saturation applied to the input signal.

  • Tone knob: Set the tonal color. High values are harsher.

  • Fat switch: Set at the top position to enhance low frequency content in the signal.

  • Level knob: Set the effect output gain level.
