Distortion Pedals

Distortion pedals provide a new tonal palette for your amp, hard-clipping the input signal to achieve distorted sounds. Many guitarists use a distortion with a clean amp setting.

Distortion pedals span a huge range of sounds, from classic rock tones through to modern metal, plus everything in between.

RAYGUN FX Dual Soda Drive+

£95.00

Incredible Value for a Dual Channel Drive!

The Raygun FX Dual Soda Drive+ is a super-flexible drive pedal which ranges from boost to dense distortion. It combines two Soda Drive+ circuits in a single pedal, with the option to run each channel independently or stack them for more tonal variation.

Both channels have a 3-way toggle switch, allowing you to select from Dirty, Boost (less gain, more volume) or Fuzz (a germanium diode) modes.

Founder of Raygun FX, Steve has even added slightly different germanium diodes to each channel to give subtle variations in the Fuzz mode. 

 

Handwired in Southend-On-Sea in the UK, it's easy to see why this is one of our most popular pedals: the Dual Soda Drive+ is a serious bit of kit at a great price!

Features:

  • Dual-channel overdrive/distortion pedal
  • 3-way toggle for each channel: Boost, Drive & Fuzz
  • Non-identical germanium diodes give each channel a slightly different character in Fuzz mode
  • Volume, Tone, Drive & Toggle controls x2
  • True bypass
  • Handwired in the UK
  • Power:9V DC, 100mA centre-negative (not included);

GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Nobrainer

£150.00

Plexi Crunch To Metal Muscle!

The Greenhouse Effects Nobrainer is a high-gain distortion pedal sure to satisfy those looking for distortion ranging from thick Plexi-style crunch through to modern metal muscle.

The Tone & Mid controls are very interactive, giving this pedal almost endless tonal possibilities, whether you prefer to scoop your mids or highlight the low end.

You can also switch to a single control if things get too much by simply turning the Tone control fully anti-clockwise and using the Mid control to adjust your tone. This technique also provides additional headroom.

Features:

  • Volume, Gain, Tone & Mid controls
  • True bypass
  • Responsive, interactive high gain distortion pedal
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Outlier

£158.00

Cranked Tube Tones...

The Greenhouse Effects Outlier is a wide-ranging, harmonically rich overdrive/distortion pedal designed to emulate a cooking tube amp.

Combining 3 cascading gain stages (2x Op-Amp & 1x FET) in a complex circuit enables all levels of drive to be covered in a single pedal, from boosty overdrive and mild crunch to soaring high gain.

The active EQ allows far more tone-shaping possibilities than a passive design, and the Bass & Treble controls are very interactive with each other.

The input and output stages feature buffers to condition your guitar signal for optimum integrity.  

Features:

  • Volume, Gain, Bass, Treble & DIS/OD controls
  • 3 cascading gain stages
  • Active EQ
  • True bypass
  • Input and output buffers
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

ZANDER CIRCUITRY Cranium Murine Distortion

£149.00

Super-RAT!

Zander Circuitry's Cranium Murine Distortion is an all-in-one version of the famous RAT circuit, pulling together the best bits from various mods and generational iterations and introducing enhancements such as Zander Circuitry's signature diode selector.

Key to the Cranium's flexible approach to the RAT circuit is the interplay between Freq and Tone controls, enabling precise dialling in of your sound. The Body control takes this even further, affecting how much bass is produced for a deeper or more sculpted tone.

The Blast control allows you to set the gain level for the second footswitch for a volume/gain boost when kicked in.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Cranium Murine Distortion features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

  • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
  • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
  • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
  • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
  • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
  • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
  • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
  • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

Features:

  • Updated version of Cranium Dual Gain Distortion for 2021
  • Top-mounted jacks
  • Level, Gain, Tone, Freq, Body, Level, Blast & Diode Selector Controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).
  • Current draw: 120mA
