Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "What a fun high gain monster"
Overall: What a powerful distortion, a extreme range of high and low end. If you know how do dial in a good sound on the Metal Zone stacked EQ you will love this puppy. What a fun pedal to play. Everyone had to love a killer gain like this once in a while. Really is pure metal, deep low end, loose and tight switch, super high end if you like that sort of thing, much more low end range than a Boss. True Bypass, and 15v internal step up.
Style of Music: heavy fusion variant

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "HardWire TL2 Metal Distortion Pedal"
Overall: I bought this pedal after I bought and heard the Hardwire Tube Overdrive pedal. I was very impressed with the purity and clarity of the tone. It sounded like I was playing thru an overdriven tube amp. I had a Boss metal zone at the time. But after checking out the Hardwire TL2 metal Distortion, I was blone away! I gave the MT2 to my brother and went and got the Hardwire Chorus, the Hardwire Phaser, and a Hardwire tuner. These pedals are built really well, they're true bypass so my tone stays mine, they all sound amazing, especially the HardWire TL2 Metal Distortion Pedal. I'm totally able to get that deep, stalking, shredding, punchy kinda riff! And playing thru my Gibson les Paul and my Marshall half stack, it's totally the sound I've been chasing! You all know what I'm talking about. LOL, I may go ahead and buy two. I love this pedal! The Hardwire pedals have most the other brands shaking in there box's!
Style of Music: I play mostly blues, with classic rock and metal throne in here and there.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
