The Distortus Maximus packs all the bone-crunching tone of Krank amps into a compact pedal. Easy to operate with 3-band EQ, gain, and master controls. Achieve the high-gain harmonic flavors of the Revolution 1/Krankenstein amps that other distortion effects just can't deliver. It's over-the-top insanity with the warmth and clarity you expect from Krank.

Bought this nice pedal abut 2 years ago and haven't thought about any other distortion since. I play mostly Metal, metalcore, rock music and this baby packs a punch! Has a very nice crunch tone to it giving you those heavy, chuggy palm mutes we all love!
I bought this distortion pedal quite some time ago looking for something durable that will last me a long time. I saw The price and hoped it would be worth it. A good friend recommended the 'Krankshaft' or this pedal to spice up my amp's distortion (small Fender Frontman 15g somewhat old). I ordered it at the store and it was on back order so it took a LONG time, But i finally got it and it was worth it all. After plugging in my B.C. Rich warlock with EMG 81-85, it was amazing. It has great distortion for many types of rock music. I highly recommend this pedal.
This pedal is one of the best out there. It maintains the guitar's original tone. I use a Fender American Standard Strat and a Hot Rod DeVille, and it sounds just like the Fender tone. It's very versatile, don't be fooled because it's for "Metal" because it isn't. When I play with the guitar's volume around 5, it sounds like a clean cranked up, very nice, even with the pedal's gain at 10. The EQ is very sensitive so you won't have any trouble finding your sound. I can even get a John Mayer sound from this pedal! When I use it with all the gain, it's a flamethrower with beautiful sound! You can feel and hear every note you play clearly!! Get this pedal, you won't regret it!
This pedal is really great for Metal and Rock Guitarist. Its distortion gives you an incredible metal tone but it doesn't cloud you sound like metal cores and zones. Its also has the true bypass so if your on stage playing or even with a friend, if the battery fries then you still can play without dealing with the wires. Out of the box it took me about a half hour until i found settings that rocked. Its a little bit pricy compared to what you could pay but this thing has my vote 100%. Totally worth it.
