ZT Extortion Expressive Distortion Pedal

Don't be afraid to go to extremes with your sound. Switch between pure, vintage-style analog and DSP-enhanced analog modes with this distortion pedal.

The ZT Extortion pedal is a completely unique concept in effects pedal design. Switch between pristine, vintage-style analog overdrive and DSP-enhanced tonal extremes unlike anything any that have come before. From blues-y midrange-sweet drive through searing highs to the deeply scooped chug of death metal, the Extortion does it all.

For classic tones, the Extortion features one of the finest analog distortion circuits ever heard. To blast into other worlds, kick in the 'Spectral DSP'. Fully adjustable in tonality and intensity, the digital circuitry is not a separate 'stage' simply placed in series with the analog. The Extortion becomes an analog/digital mutant, with the two domains merged together as one. The Spectral DSP can also be controlled real-time with an external expression pedal, for even more out-there sounds!

Combine all this with an innovative single tone control that functions as a graphic EQ, the Extortion is a true pedal lover's dream. It can be your sole distortion or complement your other favorites -- but once you hear it you won't want to live without it!
