Veteran amp technician James Brown has announced the forthcoming release of a new metal-head-pleasing crunch pedal in his Tight line of Amptweaker effects units. The new TightMetal pedal has all of the features of the original TightDrive
, but with a few notable additions geared towards dark and dirty metal speedsters.
Renowned amp design engineer James Brown will be taking a new guitar effects pedal to the Nashville Amp Expo shortly and is asking for help with final tweaking. The new TightBoost pedal offers musicians a clean gain power boost without producing unwanted distortion, and the comments from show visitors invited to try out the new pedal could well help to shape the final production model.
The TightDrive from Amptweaker allows guitar and bass players to take control of that all important tone and overcome any unwanted delay that can slow down the sound as it moves through an amp's circuitry. As well as LED-lit gain, distortion, volume and Tight controls the pedal also features an effects loop where onboard effects can be moved in front of or behind the TightDrive's tone modifications.
