Nemetone Releases the Distiny Overdrive/Distortion

Designed and hand built in Canada, the Distiny is designed to be a versatile drive pedal that allows you to choose between overdrive and distortion with the flick of a switch.


Boutique pedal builder Nemetone has announced the release of their new Distiny overdrive/distortion pedal.

Designed and hand built in Canada, the Distiny is a versatile drive pedal that allows you to choose between overdrive and distortion with the flick of a switch. It has a very large operating range, spanning the softest overdriven tone to the heaviest distortion in a single pedal, without compromises and with very few adjustments required.

Its key feature is a two-position toggle switch allowing you to select your preferred operating mode. "Soft" mode is a soft clipping channel producing a classic overdrive sound. "Hard" mode is a hard clipping channel producing a powerful raw distortion.

The pedal also features a straightforward 3-knob control set. The Gain Knob adjusts the amount of overdrive/distortion added to the input signal. The Filter knob is a low pass filter allowing you to adjust the high frequencies of your signal and control the harshness of the distortion. The Volume knob controls the output volume.

DISTINY’S features include:

  • Gain knob with superior range and versatility
  • Filter knob to control high-end content of the distortion
  • Toggle switch to change drive mode (Distortion & Overdrive)
  • 9-volt DC via external power supply or batter
  • High visibility LED indicator in all light conditions

The highly versatile and handcrafted pedal carries a price of $199 USD. It can be purchased at nemetone.com.
