“I stopped using distortion pedals when I bought an amp. But when playing shows where I can’t bring my whole rig, I find it very hard to get a hold of the sound that I want. When a friend lent me his tight metal pedal, I started using it at home on different amps. The first thing that came to mind was ‘this pedal is what i need.’ Everything that i need for my dirt sound is in this pedal. No more, no less.” –Ariel Lumanlan
