For Sale direct from the 2013 NAMM Show is the new Metasonix F-1 Complex Distortion Pedal-$299.00.
Ever wondered what would happen if you deliberately destroyed your tube amp? Now you can blow it up, every day, all day long. Without actually damaging anything.
The F-1 Pedal uses a unique vacuum-tube pentode circuit to do something special: It simulates the extreme distortion, parasitic oscillations, and other unique sounds that come from a tube guitar amp atht is being overdriven to flaming destruction.
There's only one knob to adjust, and it only needs one knob. "Complex Distortion" varies the plate loading on the two pentodes to give asymmetrical distortion, and it varies the feedback effects--all on one knob. A vast cornucopia of sound effects, from a mild vacuum-tube warmth to beserk torturous screaming violence, is just a knob turn away!
It's hand made in California, by real people. And there's nothing else even vaguely like the F-1, in any form. The Metasonix F-1 comes with an AC Adapter and extra 6CB6 A Vacuum-tube.
