Stompboxtober Day 15: Karma MTN-10

Enter here for your chance to WIN a Karma MTN-10! Giveaway Ends October 16, 2021.


Karma MTN-10 

The Karma MTN-10 captures the warm and wonderful character of the long out of production Ibanez Mostortion, an overdrive pedal especially popular with Nashville players for its amazing tube amp-like sound. As in the originals, we use the elusive CA3260 dual opamp chip. The Drive control covers a huge range of almost-clean to nicely overdriven tones, while the 3-band tone stack EQ allows for subtle-to-extreme tone shaping. And the Volume controls kicks out plenty of gain to push the front of your amp. The Karma MTN-10 is true-bypass, using advanced modern construction techniques and sturdier, more reliable pots, switches, and enclosures. The Karma MTN-10 is now on the pedal boards and in the studios of many respected players around the world. Check out the many glowing reviews we've gotten on our Reverb page!

Excellent sounds in a portable and very affordably priced package.

A footswitchable clean channel and onboard reverb would make it perfect.

The original Bogner Ecstasy, released in 1992, is iconic in heavy rock circles. Though it was popularized and preferred by rock and metal artists (Steve Vai and Brad Whitford were among famous users), its ability to move from heavy Brit distortion to Fender-like near-clean tones made it appealing beyond hard-edged circles. Even notorious tone scientist Eric Johnson was enamored with its capabilities.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
