Inspired by the Box of Metal, one of the heaviest-sounding pedals in the ZVEX lineup.
This board will punch your audience with a massive wave of distortion with a great thump and excellent tone control. It also includes a noise-silencing gate feature that can be turned off or on with a convenient footswitch.
Just don’t expect mercy from this pedal; the gain knob adjusts from hard to harder.
Metal Boxer is an aggressive high-gain pedal whose gain and tonal characteristics are somewhat similar to high-gain tube amplifiers that have been the staple of hard rock and metal sounds since the ‘80s.
There are many pedals out there, but none of them can deliver those punching waves like the Metal Boxer. Its superb sound quality provides excellent harmonic content while consistently delivering gain on tap for your desired tone. The set of knobs also adds all the versatility you need to hit the right spot.
Gate: Adjust for your playing style. When fully clockwise, palm-muting will create an audible thump, and bumping the strings will open the gate. Turn down to make the gate tighter. Gate is unaffected by other controls.
Volume: Sets the output volume of the pedal.
Bass: Sets the bass/sub-bass level.
Treble: Adjust for treble content. Use this in tandem with your amp’s presence and treble controls to get the precise top-end texture… the presence control is essential on your amp if you have one.
Gain: Sets the amount of distortion. The BOM does NOT clean up. This control goes from hard to very hard. It may crackle when turned, which is perfectly normal.
MIDs: Adjust to accentuate or scoop out mids.
