On first impressions the slostortion is a great looking bit of kit! Everything about the pedal is sturdy and obviously built to last. The stompbox will deliver some of the fattest most saturated tones one could ever wish for! However don't take the Slostortion to be a one trick pony, with a flick of a switch it will also provide you with more subtle furryness. The pedal will fill all of your disortion needs, from just breaking up your amp to melting it into a puddle!
The Slostorion comes with 6 robust knobs which control; EQ, Boost, Volume and Gain. A 2 way switch kicking the pedal between its mighty Overdrive and its vintage Crunch. Its 2 footswitchs are the obvious and all important on switch. And a usefull Boost button which would serve you well in the live situation, when you threatend with the task of climbing above the rest of the band for the all important solos!
This Pedal will fill all of your distortion needs across multiple genres. It particualry excells in the high gain big saturation lead department. Stomping on this bad boy will add huge harmonic overtones to your sound and it will have you sustaining notes all evening! More over riffing on the high gain settings will retain all of the warmth and clarity of a valve amp while adding the punch and smoothness which we all desire. Its equally enjoyable selecting the milder crunch tones, this setting will have you playing with more dynamics in no time at all. All in all treading on this stompbox where ever the knobs are pointed is a pleasurable experience.
Perhaps a seemingly hefty pricetag but its backed up with build quality, durabilty and outragious tone!
