Amptweaker TightMetal Pro


Introducing the Amptweaker TightMetal Pro Pedal

Sugar Hill, GA, July 10, 2013

Since introducing the popular TightMetal™ distortion pedal in 2011, Amptweaker™

has received many requests for a two button version. Unlike most distortion pedals

with boost, the TightMetal Pro includes 2 Boost knobs, one before and one after the

distortion… it’s easy to boost the gain AND volume, for the perfect solo tone.

There’s also a Midboost button that works with the output Boost knob, to help solos

cut through the mix.

We also polled many customers who didn’t like the TightMetal, to find out what tone

changes could be offered to reign in those other metal tones. The result is the

Smooth Edge switch which cuts the high end sizzle for a warmer edge, and 2 Fat

switches allow either the normal or Boosted tones to have a thicker attack with a bit

more compression. The added three band EQ allows for much tonal variation, with its

Thrash button for more traditional deeper scooped mids. Our standard noise gate

from the original TightMetal is also included, with the hard stopping Chomp setting

to help keep the rhythm as tight as possible…..especially when doing very quick riffs

with a lot of palm-muted stops. Internal adjustments allow for tweaking the gate.

Amptweaker pedals are known for effects loops, and this one has 3: a universal loop,

another active with the boost, and our popular SideTrak loop which activates when

the pedal is OFF, to automatically shut off clean effects.

Standard Amptweaker features: LED illumination of controls, 14 gauge steel housing

and true bypass switching.
