January 3, 2011

ProValve, Triple Wreck, Tube Zone and PisdiYAUwot battle it out. The ESP Stef-T7 is the catalyst once again, although this time it’s tuned E through to low B. Let the games begin!

    @hendrix184 Not sure about singles with the might TW. I personally go for humbuckers with it because the gain is so ferocious the noise floor might be a little much. You can crank the mids, though, and it will sound OK.

    hey great vid, im really interested in the triplewreck, i play a strat sss and i play mostly metallica/tool/mastodon stuff would this be a good choice for me, i want to add some beef to the single coils

    @twistedH3L1X i had the DIST-X, i thought i’d be able to replace my sans amp gt2 and my Damage Control Solid Metal pedal with the Blackstar pedal but it couldn’t replace either of them..the tone controls have limited range and the gain is noisy and past 3 o’ clock it didn’t add much of anything…

    I think the Triple Wreck destroys the other pedals….nice demo…

    Thumbs up for the Provalve! Very nice!

    triple wreck seem a nice choice to be front DS/OD pedal boosting other one, especially its creamy tone :p

    @twistedH3L1X I’ve requested a demo unit from Blackstar and they haven’t so much as replied despite several emails. So if that’s indicative of their customer service..

    I would like to see the same comparison with the Blackstar HD DIST-X replacing the Provalve. The Blackstar is more inline with the others and is far more brootalz than the Lovepedal, IMO. It might even win.

    It is great to find one of the worlds accomplished X menI mean axe man to ask a question to. I have a Fernandes Ravelle baritone with an 80 gage on to Fsharp b e a d g going through a b52 combo with a 15 inch orange base cab under it. I need a pedal that will give me a good tight start stop chuger chuger scream like a bitch sound with out loosing crunch or tone, I have an isp decimator g string on itโ€™s way if that would help with the choice. I was thinking of the new version of the Bloody Mary.

    @wabwabb I’d love to, but neither company has come forward and I ain’t buying anymore pedals (or I’ll get thrown out of home!) ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you make a Metal Muff Video soon.

    @MeTuLHeD Heheh. I’ve covered the Crunch Box on my channel a number of times. Do a search on the channel’s page. The Plush sounds interesting though; I’ll check it out. Cheers, BK.

    Dude. You’re on a boutique pedal roll!

    It’s time to check out the following.

    1. MI Audio Crunch Box
    2. Plush Noxious

    I’ve heard that BOTH of them can REALLY bring the brootz!

  21. plexed on January 4th, 2011 3:15 am

    Always hard to tell unless one is plugged in but… just going on this video
    I would pick in order the 1. Emma 2. Tube Zone 3. TW. 4. Pro Valve. For straight
    amp metal sound the Emma really nailed it!

  22. scorpguitar79 on January 4th, 2011 3:22 am

    good video but alittle anemic in the low end. Provalve sounded the worst-emma the best.

  23. twistedH3L1X on January 4th, 2011 3:26 am

    Thanks for the great demo! I’m leaning towards the Emma in this demo.

    I am the proud new owner of a Triple Wreck!

  25. RelaxationII on January 4th, 2011 4:02 am

    Triple Wreck wins. Who’s next?

Got something to say?
