Thick, Modern Distortion
With A Few Extras
The Dirt Hammer is a thick and heavy distortion box. Dialed back it can be extremely expressive and sensitive. Push the gain and you’ll have plenty of thick saturation at your fingertips. The pedal is at home on guitar and bass pedal boards, and with the dual detented shelving EQ controls you are sure to dial in the exact sound you’ve been lusting after. Similar vibes to the DS-1 and RAT, but providing much more tonal flexibility and a much richer, saturated sound.
Cutting a some excess mud and brightness helps focus the power of the distortion
into the places where it matters most, the low mids and the mids.
