AmpTweaker Tight Metal Distortion

The new TightMetal™ distortion pedal takes the TightDrive™ and TightBoost™ overdrive platform to the next level by providing over-the-top metal and hardcore crunch tones with adjustable tightness thanks to the Tight control. This issue came up early on 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.

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.

  1. Finally a distortion box with Balls!!! Review by Krimson Le Diable

    The Tight Metal Pedal is a beast of a machine, super versatile, armed and ready to deliver that tight metal sound that we all crave, wherever you go and whatever amp you plug it into. Beware folks!!! This is NOT another fizzy box!!!! It IS the new standard. It would be my ONLY PEDAL if I'd have to travel SUPER LIGHT to a gig or a rehearsal...not knowing what back line I'd get. Why mess about with tweaking a clean preamp, just plug it straight into the return of an FX loop. It's a sounds AMAZING in both solid state or valve power amp...and I even tried it through a pocket pod an it still sounds deliciously SUPERB!!!! Well done and THANK YOU James're the man!!!!
