Who says metal is dead? It seems that heavy music has once again taken the world by storm, only a few short years after all the "experts" said that it was a dying fad. The rebirth of heavy music marks a renewed interest in super-saturated guitar tones, brutal drop-tuned riffs and bone-crushing rhythms.

The key to keeping these chainsaw chops razor sharp is the "scooped-mid" guitar tone - crank your low-end, boost your highs, and turn down those mids and you've got it. To achieve this, you need a distortion device that offers complete control over the entire tonal range.

That's why you need the Guyatone MM-X Metal Monster. The MM-X is the absolute last word in high gain distortion devices. It offers gobs of grinding gain and singing sustain that were previously unattainable without the use of the most powerful tube amplifiers at full-bore volume (did we mention most expensive and heaviest as well?).

The Metal Monster's hybrid tube/solid state distortion circuit yields everything from subtle overdrive to extreme saturation worthy of the blackest black metal band. Its Three-stage EQ section allows for precise control over all frequency bands, with a parametric midrange that covers the "sweet spot" between 200-5kHz. The MM-X's controls allow for an unlimited variety of brutal tones, including the trademark "scooped mids" made famous by bands like Metallica and Pantera.

If other distortions just aren't enough, try the MM-X on for size!
