The Massacre is my newest distortion pedal. Its got plenty of gain and lots of bite. Very tight and focused sound, great for clean shred tones and plenty of flexibility for hard rock and metal tones. This pedal will clean up with your guitar's volume knob and sounds massive through an overdriven amp. Warm crunchy break-up, makes a great overdrive with the gain down- all the complexities of your playing will show through.
