Looking for doom in all the wrong places? This meticulous recreation of the preamp from a rare ’80s amp is explosively effective.

Destructive amounts of volume, gain, and low end. Wall-of-amps doom in a box.

Somewhat confusing control labels and layout. EQ boosts can be subtle. You’ll probably want a noise gate.

$250

If doom metal and its variants are big blips on your radar, you’ve probably noticed there’s a dearth of all-in-one stompboxes capable of unleashing genre-worthy filth and mayhem. A Big Muff (or any number of other fuzzes) and a distortion or two will take you a long way, but for dedicated doomers the aural onslaught usually isn’t just about cascading gain—it’s watts and decibels wreaking havoc on speaker cones. Which is why powerful heads (often 120- or 200-watt bass or PA models) from the likes of Sunn, Ampeg, Peavey, Orange, Hiwatt, Sound City, and Marshall largely rule the realm.
