The WARTHOG Distortion
What we think…
If you like your tweed on the cranked side (we know we do!) and all things from across the pond, then look no further than the Warthog. Gritty overdrive with tons of tonal potential, this pedal lets you sculpt your tone whilst retaining the definition and clarity of the instrument. Married to bomb proof construction and an aesthetically pleasing package, there is no way you can go on without one.
A word form the manufacturer The WARTHOG started off being designed to be the distortion to beat all others; however it ended up being so much more. Through minute tailoring of the circuit, the WARTHOG delivers the biggest range of tones of any overdrive/distortion pedal on the market. With an ability to go from crystal clean boost through to distortion the WARTHOG has sonic characteristics that match the military prowess of its namesake. Its tonality is firmly in the American camp with sparkling cleans similar to the best amplifiers in that genre, With the calibre and gain controls cranked you get a crushing distortion with fuzzy overtones at the very extremes of travel. All settings are extremely addictive, with a 3 dimensional and complex sound that makes your playing jump from the fretboard.
Aside from achieving fantastic sonic credentials the WARTHOG is built like a tank with physical features such as recessed knobs and top mounted jacks. Robust build does not have to come at the sacrifice of looks, the WARTHOG uses a combination of a beautiful stainless steel laser etched centre console wrapped in a tough powder coated baseplate.
Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, Neutrik jacks and a Burr-Brown Opamp. These are the crème de la crème of the electronics world and when coupled with a robust gold plated PCB and dust sealed potentiometers the recipe is as good as it can possibly be.
