Ibanez SM7 Tone Lok Smash Box Distortion Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
Drive, Lo EQ, High EQ, and Level knobs.
For 3 decades Ibanez Electronics has created effects the working player could afford, but couldn't afford to be without. If your current boxes aren't having the right "effect" on you, it's time to "lock down" some new tones.

The Smashbox is the most aggressive weapon in the Tone Lok distortion arsenal. Armed with obscene amounts of gain, tight low end, and searing highs, the Smashbox is THE heavy rock sound for the contemporary guitarist.

Drive, Lo EQ, High EQ, and Level knobs provide precise effect control.

On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case. No more lost settings or knobs broken by ticked off lead vocalists stomping off stage.

On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in a cool looking, road tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.
Runs on 9-volt battery or optional AC adapter.

"Ibanez smashbox, best pedal I've ever heard..."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had this item for close to a year and I'm still not bored with the sound. I'll keep this one as long as I keep playing.
Sound
I've had several distortion pedals including the Digitech Metal Master, DOD Death metal, DOD Grunge, Rockteck Metal Worker, Digitech Hot Rod, and a few others and this pedal sounds the best with my setup. I have a Behringer GX212 Ultratwin amp and use a Jackson DK2 skully guitar. This pedal has excellent crunch and a deep tone.
Features
This pedal has more features than any other single distortoin pedal I've ever played. The void is awesome and you can change the tone by the push of a switch.
Quality
The only thing about this pedal is that its light. Seems like a big fall could damage it but thats the pedals only downfall.
Value
Like stated above, this pedal sells for $50 and the metal master and hot rod pedals are $80- $90 and don't sound as good at all!
Manufacturer Support
Never had to deal with them so support isn't needed.
