The new, aptly named Empress Effects Heavy Distortion Pedal comes with a full range of unbeatable high-gain tones - everything from shred-worthy, mid-driven '80s hair metal to dropped-C, Machine Head-esque savagery. With two independent channels that can be voiced similar to one another, you can use one channel as a solo boost and the other as your main setup, or you can define each channel separately for two wildly different rigs, depending on your amp combo.
The Heavy also has separate Weight controls that let you shape the low-end response, as well as a mutual High and Low EQ section allowing you to find just the right tone. It's true bypass, too, so it won't affect your signal chain when not in use, and it features a noise gate to limit the amount of unwanted noise. New here at MSM, the seven-person, Ontario, Canada-based company has some really great pedals available, all incredibly well built and easy to use. This Empress Effects Heavy Distortion Pedal is one of our new favorites. Requires 9V power supply.
