The -D4 is a straight-up distortion pedal. Muthafucka say wha? That ain’t cool and booteek! It should be a non-coloring transparent overdrive or some other bullshit internet forum descriptor. Well, this is exactly what it says. A good distortion pedal that has plenty of volume and gravelly gain on tap with a true tone that will boost or lower highs. At high gain it can get a little muffy, at lower gain it is looser and can work as an overdrive with a bit of chest hair on it or even tap into rodent territory. Hitting a hot tube amp with the -D4 gives it some serious \m/etal vibes, almost like a JCM 800. What is also cool about it is that unlike most major manufacturer distortions, this one plays well in a pedalboard context. Plug a mic into it and release your inner Al Jourgansen.
Smaller 4.37" X 2.37" X 1.07" MXR sized enclosure, true bypass switching, common 9v center negative BOSS style power input and battery snap.
