The new Electro-Harmonix Nano Metal Muff gets you that metal-tinged distortion of the original Metal Muff, but in a much smaller, more pedalboard-friendly form factor. It also features a newly designed noise gate that keeps unwanted hum at bay.
Electro-Harmonix Nano Metal Muff
Electro-Harmonix has shrunk its ultra-high gain Metal Muff into the more compact Nano Metal Muff. This new pedal features a handy built-in noise gate to tame any unwanted hiss that is likely to be produced with all that extra gain. A welcome addition, as nobody likes to hear hiss between their riffs.
EQ and controls
You can sculpt your tone to taste using the comprehensive EQ section that includes Bass +/- 14dB of cut or boost, Mid +/- 15dB and Treble +/- 10dB. A VOL/Volume control sets the overall output, whilst the DIST knob adjusts the input gain and overall distortion level of this high gain pedal.
The gate eliminates any unwanted hum/hiss and has an LED to indicate when the output signal is being muted. When dealing with a pedal with such high gain, hiss/hum can always be an issue. However, if this noise gate is tight, it will no doubt appeal to players interested in such a metal-orientated distortion pedal.
This little metal dirt box can be run from either a 9 volt battery (one is included) or an external power supply. You can check out the official demo video below to hear it in action.
