This pedal gives a really nice metal distortion sound. I went to a guitar center store to try out pedals and i bought this one because of the quality for the price. Its made of metal so its hard to damage. The only thing that i dont like about it is that you can only change the distortion level and the volume, theres no equalizer adjustments or anything else.

I bought this pedal in hopes of getting a decent metal sound and was very dissapointed. To get any kind of a decent sound out of it you have to basically eq your amp so that the highs are almost completely gone. After that it sounds mediocre at best but when you click it off everything else sounds bad because of the lack of highs. I would only reccomend this pedal to a beginner who has no idea what good tone is and just wants something cheap with high gain. Anyone else I would advise to stay away.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal sounds exceptionally good! I run it through a hot rod and it makes my amp sound comparable to my friends Mesa Boogie stack. Great for anyone who wants that kind of sound without shelling out thousands of dollars. This pedal is really made for one purpose-high gain metal, which is the only reason I bought it. If you want something more versatile this might not be your best bet. Some people complain that there is no tone control, but I just run it with a graphic eq and I don't have any problem.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    By the way, I'm not a "plant" but a real customer. I can understand the reviewers here being split down the middle on this pedal; it's very intense as far as the effect it has on your tone, but that's also what makes it great if you're into a very heavy, creamy type sound, think Smashing Pumpkins' Today song only with more of a Sabbath-type tone instead of grunge fuzz. I have the scoop switch off, the controls set to 12 o'clock for rhythm tracks, and the distortion set to 2:00 for leads. My SG is fun to play again.

    Enter Sandman ...

    By Michael Magallanes

    from Charlotte, NC

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This gem has the most biting distortion sound I've heard in any pedal...nails the "Enter Sandman" tone on my guitar with gain at about 3 or 4 and the scoop set at low (middle position). I had to have this after seeing a demo on you tube and am very happy with it! Note that this is not a smooth overdrive and is not your mom's pedal!

    This Pedal

    By srinivassa

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Ever wonder how many of the people in these reviews are plants? No way that many people think this is the greatest distortion box ever. There were only two people on the money. The one who said buy the biggest one, and the one who said the nano has uncontrolable treble. The main thing about the full-size is that it actually has an eq, so you can pull out all the treble, most of the midrange, and add a ton of bass. Then, you top boost for solos. I bought the nano hoping I could save space on my board since I'm not a hardcore metal player. Big mistake. I basically have to redo the sound of this by using it to drive a Bass Big Muff. That lets me eq it down to a bassy grind. Not bad in that I am using the same board space for two pedals now, but the metal sound is less desireable.My advice, if you want real metal tone, buy the big Metal Muff and drive a tube amp with it. It should get you where you want to go, short of a Marshall JCM900. If you are even semi-serious, get the XO at least. It has a tone knob that might save you from the trebly pain, and a top boost switch you could theoretically flip with your foot.

    Don't buy a DS-1 or a MT-2

    By Harshstar (Band)

    from Moorhead, MN

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I bought this muff awhile back because I was looking for something a bit more mellow w/ some warmth. My other distortions, Boss DS-1 and MT-2, are too scratchy overall and mask your tone. The treble on them is a bit ear splitting as well. So I decided to get this pedal simply because it had no eq capabilites and the ability to have some gain.I run a GE-7 Eq after this so I can eq both the clean thru my Ultimate Chorus and the pedal. This pedals sounds great if you turn the gain to 1 (1 out of 10) or .5, just a little bit. The trick is to increase the volume a lot afterwards and leave off the scooping entirely. I also use a DD-6, Rocktek Chorus, and Boss Trem, and a Crybaby. I play video game music covers so we do a lot of single note lines in 3 piece harmony; avoiding actual chords like the plague. So this pedal works for the heavier stuff by maintaining your pickup's tone; adding a little grit to your clean. If you turn the gain up all the way or use the scooping you'll be disappointed... just makes everything mush w/o clarity. I'm still looking for an overdrive pedal and a tube amp, but this pedal works well and makes you feel at home.

    metal is all

    By telecasterdisaster

    from twin cites, mn

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    i bought this pedal for some over-the-top distortion in adition to all my many overdrives. i wanted a punchy, and consuming sound, and the compact-ness of this pedal (and the price) sold me. the sound however, is nothing i thought. its very buzzy and 80's metal sounding. weak sauce in my opinion. Someone also said that by turning the gain low, you could get just some overdriven sounds out of this thing. WRONG. definetly nothing clost to any decent overdrive here, just metal. so thats whats up.

    best pedal, best value. hands down

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Electro-Harmonix Nano Pocket Metal Muff Distortion Pedal has it all. Turn the dial 1/2 way to get a good rock/hard rock cruch sound. turn it all the way up and you have the most intimidating distortion on the market. It puts all other pedals to shame. I was very impressed with the quality of this pedal. its durable, yet light weight. the pedal shifts with incredible ease. 10/10. buy it now!! happy rocking !
