This pedal is a modified version of our Box of Rock’s Distortron Engine. The improvements include a gain boost switch for added sizzle and a sub control switch with 3 levels. The amounts were carefully selected to reduce “flubbiness” that occurs when using amps with heavy low-end response. It would be immodest of me to suggest that this ZVEX effect is the greatest distortion pedal of all time, but it probably is. Try it last in your chain, and beat it up with your other effects... it stacks like a dream.
The Distortron™ is the gifted little sister to the Z.Vex Box of Rock™. It is highly specialized to simulate the “everything on 10” sound of a classic Marshall® JTM45 non-master-volume amplifier. You may use the Distortron™ effectively with many different amplifiers, but to get the sound I heard when I de-signed it, try it through an old-school non-master volume Marshall at least once. You may use your guitar’s volume control to adjust for the exact amount of distortion you need, all the way down to very clean and clear with most drive settings when the gain switch is set to Lo.
Control options: Drive, Tone, Volumen, Gain, Subs
DRIVE: Sets the amount of distortion. Start around 1:00 o’clock. Drive is based on my original Super Hard-On gain control, so it may crackle when turned. This is perfectly normal.
TONE: Adjust for treble content. Start around 2:00 o’clock.
VOLUME: Adjust for output volume level. Start around 9:00 o’clock.
GAIN: “Lo/Hi” lets you choose standard “Box of Rock” gain level or a slightly boosted level.
SUBS: “2-1-3” lets you choose the full “Box of Rock” sub amount (3) or two different lower levels of subs depend-ing on your amp’s needs.
9vDC battery or external power supply (optional)
