Amptweaker TightMetal JR - Mini Metal Distortion
With ever-shrinking pedalboard real estate, a recent common theme are smaller footprint versions of popular pedals. The TightMetal Jr. shares most of the features of the larger TightMetal and FatMetal Pro pedals, and uses the same circuitry, while eliminating some features most players don't need in order to shrink down the size and weight. Derived from the Pro series, the Tight control and Fat switches were re-configured into a 3-position Fat/Normal/Tight switch to dial in the attack of the notes from thick and heavy to aggressive and chunky. An EQ switch similarly provides Thrash/Normal/Smooth tone settings, which helps the pedals cover much of the range of its Pro parents. This pedal can even be used as a preamp, by running the output straight into the amp's effects return or power amp input. For the FatMetal tones, simply switch to Smooth and Fat, otherwise it's a mini TightMetal Pro. The manually-adjustable Noise Gate which can be cranked to stop notes hard and fast is also included And the great thing about a built-in noise gate is that it goes away when you turn the pedal your clean tone is unaffected!
