YOUR BEST SOURCE FOR PRO AUDIO GEAR. Amptweaker Fat Metal Pro Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with SideTrak. Amptweaker Fat Metal PRO Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with SideTrak. Since introducing the FatMetalT distortion pedal in 2015, AmptweakerT has received many requests for a two button version. There’s also a Midboost button that works with the output Boost knob, to help solos cut through the mix. The FatMetal Pro is designed for players who wanted a warmer metal tone that works better with brighter guitars and amps, but also is less aimed at palm-muted metal, and works better for tremolo-picking Black metal, and darker sludge and doom metal tones. All features are identical to the TightMetal Pro, but the tone has been tweaked to extend the low range of the Tight and Tone controls, and the Black Gain switch boosts the gain in an appropriate way to get the thicker, buzzier gain required for those genres. The Thrash switch converts the basic tone into a heavier, more mid-scooped tone for classic vintage metal tones. The noise gate has also been retweaked to make it smoother, and to sound better with the reduced highs of the FatMetal to allow it to work better for solos…. But it’s internally adjustable if you want the TightMetal CHOMP gate, just crank it! Amptweaker pedals are known for effects loops, and this one has 3: a universal loop, another active with the boost, and our popular SideTrak loop which activates when the pedal is OFF, to automatically shut off clean effects. I can be used to add a compressor, chorus or chain of effects that only works when you play clean, or to switch to another distortion pedal to use for an alternate rhythm sound… All without having to hit more than one switch… It’s like having a built-in A/B box. A green LED alternates with the normal red one to indicate that the loop is active when the pedal is bypassed. Another cool SideTrak trick is that if you only plug in the SideTrak Send, and don’t plug in the Return, then that Sent dry signal can be sent to another amp….. Meaning you could have the FatMetal Pro going through a 412 halfstack while sending the clean tone to a Twin or some other clean amp. All this ability comes from two simple jacks on the side of the pedal! A question we get a lot is, can the boost work by itself? No, the boost only works when the pedal is ON.. And here’s why: Since the boost has 2 boost knobs, one before the distortion and one after it. The gain boost is before and increases the distortion with only a little effect on the volume, while the Volume boost is after and increases the volume a lot. If the distortion circuit wasn’t in between, then the volume would jump very high and result in a boost for clean that didn’t make sense. The boost footswitch also turns on the boost loop, switches in a Mid-boost switch and a fat-switch underneath, and is EQ’ed to work right with this pedal… If you tried to use it as a clean boost, it would sound too mid-rangey for most people. If you’re on clean, you turn the pedal on to get crunch.. But if you want to go from clean to lead, you preset the boost before you turn on the pedal. If the boost worked separately like 2 pedals, then you’d have to hit 2 buttons to go from clean to boosted lead.

Amptweaker Tight Metal ST Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with SideTrak. At Music Store Live we’re all musicians like you, and we know how hard it can be to afford all the gear that you want and need. We encourage you to make us an offer. Often times, you’ll be pleasantly surprised! We’ll do everything we can to help get that next piece of gear into your hands. The new TightMetal STT distortion pedal takes the popular TightMetalT pedal with its over-the-top metal and hardcore crunch tones, and adds the popular SideTrakT effects loop. This loop is a secondary loop that only works when the TightMetal ST is OFF. There’s also an added High/Low gain switch to select modern or vintage metal tones. The original TightMetal pedal was designed when discussing various ideas with Mark Kloeppel, guitarist from the deathgrind band Misery Index. Like many other metal players, Mark was looking for a particular guitar tone, one with a lot of harmonics but with the ability to stop the notes really fast to work with their music. As on the original TightDrive, the Tight control varies the low end from smooth and thick to tight and aggressive so you get the attack that works with your guitar and picking style. The pedal also includes a built-in noise gate with a’Chomp’ setting for extremely tight stops. In the same way high gain tube amps are designed by cascading extra tube stages, the TightMetal was created by adding additional stages in front of a carefully modified TightDrive. The resulting thicker and much heavier distortion is tweaked by a simple built-in output EQ curve, and can further be adjusted by the output Tone control, so it’s easy to get a stack sound even through a small combo amp’s clean channel. The propietary SideTrakT effects loop is a secondary loop that turns ON when the pedal is OFF. It can be used to add a compressor, chorus or chain of effects that only works when you play clean, or to switch to another distortion pedal like the FatMetal or a 2nd TightMetal ST to use for the rhythm sound and the main TightMetal ST for the solos… All without having to hit more than one switch…. it’s like having a built-in A/B box. A green LED alternates with the normal red one to indicate that the loop is active when the pedal is bypassed. Another cool SideTrak trick is that if you only plug in the SideTrak Send, and don’t plug in the Return, then that Sent dry signal can be sent to another amp….. Meaning you could have the TightMetal ST going through a 412 halfstack while sending the clean tone to a Twin or some other clean amp. All this ability comes from two simple jacks on the side of the pedal! All other features from the original TightMetal remain intact, including the regular Effects Loop with its Pre/Post switch, the LED illumination of the controls, and the Battery On/Off switch and magnetic battery access door. The effects loop send can be used as a clean guitar send for re-amping in the studio if switched to Pre. Gain, Tone, & Volume Controls. Gate switch with ChompT setting for quick stops. Mid switch with Thrash setting. Gain switch for modern or vintage metal. Effects Loop with Pre/Post switch.. SideTrakT EFX loop that works when pedal is bypassed! LED lit knobs when using a power supply. Battery disconnect switch with red indicator. Current: 14mA with 9V battery, 20mA with 9V adapter. Works with 9V-18V supplies-like’variacing’ your amp up and down. DC Adapter jack, standard 2.1mm X 5.5mm, center ground(-). Magnetic Battery access door opens w/o tools. Handmade in the USA.
