The 10 Ton Hammer is targeted for the 80′s metal tones. Recreate “Hair Metal” sounds with versatility. With the separate bass and treble controls you can really carve your sound. Be sure to wear your spandex!! However, don’t be surprised when you coax some very soulful blues out of this beast….very organic sounding!
Experiment with all the settings since they offer a variety of tones and feel!. This pedal is very easy to find great sounds with! If you back off of the gain and increase the volume you can actually achieve some really nice “blues tones”. Turn the gain all the way up and you get what this pedal does best, lots of metal tones!
This pedal has a very high gain circuit so if you already use a high gain amplifier you will experience white noise…and isn’t that the name of the game with high gain?!! If you play the pedal through a clean amp such as a Fender type circuit, the noise will be much less. Either way, this pedal can go from very nice, mild OD tones to crushing metal tones! Adjust the bass and treble settings to taste and you’re ready to rock!
