Owned by Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, KHDK Electronics has a new stompbox, the Gary Holt Paranormal EQ. It’s been built specifically for Slayer’s lead guitarist – is this a marriage of metal and tone?
KHDK Gary Holt Paranormal parametric EQ
Designed in cooperation with Gary Holt, the new Paranormal parametric EQ pedal has seen use on Slayer’s final tour. This new pedal has control over your guitar’s mids, frequency and bandwidth for dialling in the sweet spot on your guitar amp.
When you hear what this pedal does to a stock Marshall head, you’re gonna shit your pants … This is the tone I’ve been searching for, for over 20 years.
The Paranormal is being produced in a limited run of only 250 units, so don’t take too long to decide if you want one or they will sell out. With such high praise from the Exodus/Slayer guitarist, it would probably make sense to get in early and order one soon.
If you’re after the kind of brutal, crushing guitar tones you would associate with Gary Holt, check out the short but sweet demo videos below.
