The team's opinion: It is with pleasure that we present this second-hand Zvex Distortron to you! As you are beginning to know, the Zvex effects pedal brand holds an important place in our hearts. As you can see, this Distortron is an overdrive pedal. It is based on the Box of rock which is one of the references of the Zvex brand.
The difference ? It offers a little more gain than its big sister, the boost has been removed and switches have been added. The purpose of these is to modify the structure of the gain as well as the equalization. Inspired by Marshallesque, this distortron will allow you to perfectly adapt the sound to your guitar! Do you use a Les Paul humbucker? Carefree ! You just have to position the Sub switch in position 3 to free the bottom of the spectrum. Conversely, with a guitar typed strat or telecaster, position them in 1 or 2.
The gain switch will allow you to go from the domain of the terribly vintage big overdrive to the more frank saturation. Let's not forget that this effect pedal is based on a Marshall Bluesbreaker. The latter is a Blues/Rock oriented amplifier. In short, this Zvex is an excellent reference and offers welcome versatility. The used Zvex distortron offered here is in very good condition. If you are looking for a more “vintage” model, I invite you to look at our Zvex Super Duper USA.
