Designed for everything from classic power metal over ultra-tight thrash riffs to a complete riot of unleashed power.

Risskov, Denmark -- TC Electronic has released the Röttweiler Distortion pedal, designed specifically to capture the tone and true feel of raw power that only a high-gain tube amp used to be able to deliver.

The all-analog design features a unique distortion circuit based on soft clipping – just like real tube amps – for an extremely authentic response and tone. Röttweiler Distortion is voiced to burn through any mix. While many distortion pedals sound great on their own but get lost in the mix in a live setting, the Röttweiler Distortion has been designed with live performances in mind.

Whether the ideal is power metal or tight-chugging thrash, Röttweiler will deliver at the flick of a switch. The ‘Voice’ toggle switch allows for choosing between two midrange voicings, instantly going from classic hard rock to full-on death metal. The two tone controls, Treble and Bass, let users fine-tune their guitar tone to whatever their needs and wants might be in a matter of seconds. MSRP $129.
