Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion Pedal

Need metal? Take a ride on Rocktron's high octane Metal Planet distortion pedal. Equipped with a 4 band EQ specifically designed for guitar distortion with separate level and distortion controls, the Metal Planet delivers the goods! The mid-frequency sweep allows for a wide range of tones from scooped heavy metal tones to more modern rock tones.

This pedal is not for the timid at heart - be ready for a heavy metal distortion unmatched by other pedals. The Level control adjusts the overall output of the distorted sound. The Low control adjusts the low-end frequencies and the High control adjusts the high-end frequencies. Middle control adjusts the mid frequencies bite of the distorted sound, while the Middle Frequency control adjusts the actual midrange EQ sweep. Use the Distortion control to adjust the amount of distortion in the signal.

Rock as hard as you want with Metal Planet. Housed in Rocktron's rugged road worthy extruded aluminum chassis, this pedal will stand up to the abuses of time and road wear and tear. The easy-access battery compartment makes changing batteries during a gig a breeze. And check out the super bright blue LED that tells you when the pedal hits the metal!

If metal's your thing, this may be the stomp you've been looking for.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (20 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"BAD F%#@ING PEDAL"
Sound: I just got the pedal today and the distortion is awesome!!! Feature: The knobs on the pedal provide awesome tone and distortion molding. Ease of Use: This pedal didn't rate higher because it takes a lot of knob turning to get the exact sound that you want, I wish it came with some presets like the digitech pedals. Quality: This pedal (as far as I can tell) is solid as a hunk of steel, I don't see breaking it any time soon. Value: This site is selling it for around $70. I just picked mine up for $80, that kind of frustrates me, but I still think that it was worth it. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed any support so far, so I can't really give an accurate rating, but I trust it is to the highest standards. The Wow Factor: Ever since I seen this pedal in an issue of "Guitar World" I have wanted it desperatly, everything about the looks is perfect. Wouldn't change a thing, and now that I have one, I know my lust was well placed. Overall: I cannot think of a better pedal out there. I don't see myself replacing it ever. Unless it breaks, then I'll just buy another one.
Style of Music: Death Metal, Black Metal, just Metal in general

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.
