Overview

Tap into a world of high-gain riffage with Fangs Metal Distortion and its super versatile set of tone tools that let you sculpt your sonic onslaught to perfection. From ultra-tight thrash tones to thick walls of doom metal distortion, you’ll find it all here and then some in this highly affordable pedal that’s ready to slay the stage!

All The Gain
Let’s be honest, you’re not here looking for a nice transparent overdrive or a bluesy crunch. If you are, you must have taken a wrong turn down by the Tubescreamers at isle 14. No no no, you want the gain, all the gain and nothing but the gain! Fangs Metal Distortion delivers that in spades. So whether you’re looking for tight and raunchy rhythm tones ala Metallica or searing Slayer-esque solo sounds, you will be able to get there in no time with Fangs Metal Distortion’s ultra-tight and bone crushing gain structure.

Take Control Of Your Tone
A guitar lives and dies by the mid-frequencies, and when it comes to metal the mids are more important than ever. That’s why Fangs Metal Distortion offers a versatile mid-frequency selector plus individual bass and treble controls, so you can go from raw classic metal tones to scooped nu-metal and all the way to super-beefy sludge metal tones with the flick of a switch.

Heaviness Distilled
Fangs Metal Distortion is a ferocious tone monster, but we’ve managed to contain the sonic brutality in a compact enclosure that’s built like a tank, while outfitting it with top-mounted jacks for a hassle-free implementation on your board. Now add true bypass to the mix, so the beast only takes over your tone when you need it to, and you got a great starting point for your metal mastery.

Backstage Pass – All Access
The metal monster lives! Let’s have a look at how to tame it.

Got Gain?
Unleash your inner beast, and go from a growl to a roar with this knob

Get Loud!
How loud do you want it? Exactly, LOUD! You can of course dial it counter-clockwise if you want to stay friends with your neighbors and family, but where’ the fun in that?

The Magic’s In The Middle
Choose between three finely tuned mid-frequency settings and get instant access to everything from thrash, groove and nu-metal tones.

Bass Brutality
Looking for some crushing low-end tones? This beast has a ton of it. Crank it for supreme bottom-heavy riffs or smoothed out solos, or dial it back to thin out your tone, if you don’t feel like picking another battle with your bass player today.

Looking For Treble?
If you’re playing an axe and amp combination that doesn’t offer up enough treble, or offer up too much, you can use this to sculpt your high-end tone, so you’ll sit perfectly in the mix every time.

Comments about TC Electronic Fangs Metal Distortion Effects Pedal:

The Fangs pedal is the best metal pedal I have ever have. I own a BOSS MT-2 and it does not have the great sound this one does. I use it with a power supply but using it with batteries may be difficult, you will need to take off 4 screws and open the whole enclosure, it does not have like a little door to open and change battery. The switch is non-clicking and activates when you release it, not when you press it.
Overall is great. The best pedal i have ever use, have and own. Not letting it go. It will stay in my pedalboard for ever.

This pedal is perfect for Metal... I added a link to video I did with the pedal, to be fair, there is also a Boss Compression/Sustain pedal on the chain as well, but overall, pedal sounds fantastic for the money...

          Comments about TC Electronic Fangs Metal Distortion Effects Pedal:

          I bought this pedal to actually be used with my bass guitars. I went to GC to try out few pedals and by far, with the price being as low as it is especially, was my favorite. It has tremendous tone and you can dial in many different tones. I play an upgraded Japanese 1980 Hondo H1015 Professional II most of the time and Schecter Stiletto (laugh at the Hondo part all you want, those DiMarzio p/u's are monsters). I play a lot of grunge style and everyone who has heard me play with this pedal has complimented the sound. Absolutely recommend for someone with a bass looking to turn their bass into a low end metal thrasher.

            Comments about TC Electronic Fangs Metal Distortion Effects Pedal:

            Got the pedal yesterday and noticed that the foot switch didn't click when depressed but engages/disengages when you press and then release the foot switch. Not how any of my other pedals function, so it feels counterintuitive. I'm thinking maybe the switch is faulty on mine, has anyone else experience this?

            Comments about TC Electronic Fangs Metal Distortion Effects Pedal:

            This pedal gives you all the distorted gain tones that you need. I use it for a different kind of distortion with my orange TH100 head on the clean channel. Very articulate and you can season to taste - a little dirt to gobs of mud. Easy to dial in a good tone. Very rugged build quality. Since I have limited space on my board for this amp, and I love the Orange dirt channel, I'll use this with my Marshall DSL 40 combo amp. I do not currently own a Fender combo amp, but I would think it would be awesome with a Blues or Hot Rod Deluxe for the best of cleans and a great canvas for your heavier tones using this pedal. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

              Comments about TC Electronic Fangs Metal Distortion Effects Pedal:

              I wasn't until after I had gotten a Bugera V22 Infinium, a TC Electronic Prophet, and a TC Afterglow that I did some research and found out they were all actually Behringer products. Behringer? Known for cheap and substandard products, Behringer? I was stunned. I had no idea while playing them in my local Guitar Center. I just got them for their awesome sound and build quality. I took my V22 apart just to see what it looked like on the inside. Stunned again. Immaculate. Five star, all the way.

              The Bugera was perfect for clean to classic distortion but it needed something else to make it complete. A really high gain pedal to take solos into the stratosphere.

              Considering the great sounds coming out of my other TC pedals I naturally thought about the Fangs. I wasn't disappointed. It gave me all I could handle. At the highest gain settings total firestorm on the bridge pickup, and sweet creamy saturation on the neck. I'm thinking I might invest in a fire extinguisher to set next to the amp. Just in case. Yeah. This pedal is that good.

                I was very skeptical of this pedal. It is a cheaper one for sure, but ONLY in price. This thing is a brick. It isn't going to be like the plastic Behringer pedals. It sounds amazing too. Perfect for thrash tones. I love it! Just go get it. You won't regret it.

                    I don't usually write reviews of gear but this pedal DESERVES all of a 5-star rating! I've only played over a couple disto effects that were as awesome as this one - and they were much more expensive.

                    This pedal is well-built and features enough control to really shape and tweak your tone.
