Amptweaker Announces the FatMetal Pro

A design that's based on the TightMetal and packed with effects loops, a 3-band EQ, and lots of tonal flexibility.

Cumming, GA (May 23, 2016) -- Amptweaker announces the consumer-requested FatMetal Pro, a new version of the top-selling TightMetal Pro. It has all the same boost features and multiple effects loops, but is voiced like the FatMetal. It's particularly suited for use with brighter amps or for thicker metal tones used in sludge, doom, and black metal.

The boost system includes a Gain Boost and Volume Boost, as well as an extra effects loop that comes on with the Boost footswitch to add delay or other efects with one click.The proprietary SideTrak Loop provides quick A/B to clean efects or another distortion pedal. A 3-band EQ, Smooth switch, Fat switches, and a Thrash switch give a lot of tonal flexibility, and Amptweaker’s Tight control helps dial in the pick attack./p>

All of Amptweaker’s drive pedals use true bypass switching, operate from 9 to 18VDC for varying dynamics, and have battery access with no tools required.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
