Egnater Black Metal




An awesome distortion with tons of range and versatility.

The Black Metal is a 100% pure analog high-gain distortion pedal that summons everything from classic to modern metal. The High and Low EQ knobs, coupled with Egnater’s signature Tight switch, allow the Black Metal to handle lower tunings while staying tight and defined. The built-in gate provides essential noise and feedback control for tight rhythm playing. The Black Metal also features a foot-switchable midrange section with Depth and Level controls. This midrange feature provides complete reign over the vital mid frequencies. The Black Metal features a solid zinc housing designed to withstand the abuse of the road.

The “fast gate” offers two sensitivity settings to accommodate your playing style. Whether you are a hard hitting, aggressive player or a lighter player, the gate will adjust to your style.

The footswitchable MID side of the pedal (borrowed from our acclaimed Egnater Armageddon amp), will radically alter the critical midrange from severely scooped for heavy rhythm to a boosted midrange for more cut, especially for solos. Of course, this feature is footswitchable so you can preset two very different sounds to recall “on the fly”.

The unique low battery indicator warns you when you battery is getting low.
