Producer and Torche guitarist Jonathan Nunez collaborated with OvertoneWorks’ Gary Phillips to build a handmade a discreet Class-A overdrive capable of an array of dirt colors.

Miami, FL (September 9, 2019) -- Nunez Amplification has unveiled its new Tetra-Fet pedal, a discreet Class-A overdrive capable of an astonishingly broad range of tones. It can do subtle tone lifts, slight break up, moderate levels of OD or distortion, and extremely high gain – all while preserving the natural tone of your instrument. The Tetra-Fet Drive is a dynamic overdrive that reacts and sounds like a tube amp, allowing you to roll back your volume to achieve creamy smooth or twangy cleans, mid-level crunch, as well as pulverizing levels of gain.

The Tetra-Fet delivers all these over driven tones with remarkably little noise – even at high gain settings. Its circuit brings out the most intricate details of any player's technique and allows the sound/tone of the instrument being used to come through while expanding it.

Whether you’re playing rhythm or lead, the Tetra-Fet allows players to switch smoothly between the two roles with no awkwardness. The Tetra-Fet also excels at keeping tones tight, no matter how many strings your guitar has, or how low you tune – a major attraction for 7-, 8-, and 9-string players.

The Tetra-Fet can also be used as a preamp, feeding your guitar into a power amp. Our pedals have been consistently described as sounding like tube amps, not pedals.

Tetra-Fet Drive highlights include:

  • Unique All Discreet Class-A Design
  • Tight to Massive Low End via Shift switch for Extended Range for Lower Tunings
  • Up to 90db of Gain with very low noise
  • Up to 6db of Dynamic Range at High Gain settings
  • Intuitive Controls: Gain, Level, Bass, Mid, High, Shift
  • Handmade in the USA with High End Components Sourced from: UK, EU, Japan, Canada, and the USA

The Tetra-Fet Drive is competitively priced at $275.00 and can be purchased directly from Nunez Amplification at

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
