Ultimate riff power is yours with the FullBore Metal Distortion pedal from MXR. This compact but powerful device is all you need to unleash the most devastating contemporary metal guitar tones ever heard.

This is combined with a built-in Noise Gate to knock out the noise associated with extreme gain levels while also adding definition and tightness to syncopated metal riffs.

Extensive EQ controls, with Bass, Mid, sweepable Mid-Freq and Treble knobs let you sculpt your tone with fiendish precision. The additional Scoop switch provides an instant high and low frequency boost thatll rumble the room while also adding clarity. Available from MXR, the world leader in analog pedal technology.

I first got the Dark Matter pedal, didn't like it, traded it in for this pedal. Very happy. If you want to go from clean, acoustic sound to beafy, crunchy metal sound..... get this. Adjust the eq's, find the high a bit too HIGH so I keep it dialed back a bit, I have the low turned up all the way and the mid at mid. Just the sound I was looking for! ??

I'm fairly a novice with effects and pedals, so I might be doing lots of things wrong when it comes to dialing in the effects, but this pedal makes the sound very artificial-sounding. Almost like if you were playing a synth rather than a guitar, with most of nuances of picking completely lost.

This is by far the best high gain distortion I've ever used and I've used alot. I've seen some bad reviews on other sites and I don't understand why there is any? I mean if your not looking for a metal pedal don't by a pedal with the name fullbore metal. The eq on this pedal is amazing and for a high gain pedal all your notes come out crystal clear. Sounds amazing for lead guitar also. This pedal turns my 30 watt Marshall amp into a beast! If your looking for a heavy metal pedal this is the best!

This pedal was a great buy for the price. Pretty light, but solid construction. Really helped me get some nice meaty metal tones with a bedroom practice amp. Had it for over a year now and it's really easy to get similar tones to many different artists with this.

This is one great distortion pedal. Just picked one up and played it through my Fender Ultra Chorus and I was blown away by the sound. Great bottom end for heavy riffs and great tones for solo`s. Then by mistake I activated the overdrive on my Ibanez Jemini Distortion-Overdrive pedal and I have the greatest sound that I ever heard. Added great colour to the tone. Warm, clean, clear and crisp. Just awesome!!!!!! I think one of the best distortion pedals out there. The noise gate is a great added touch to the pedal.

I've used many, and by far the tone shaping and control this pedal offers it's awesome. For $139 you get... 3 Band EQ, mids frequency adjustment, a built in adjustable noise gate and this wonderful "scooping" option. So you can go from a Ozzy ozzbourn kinda sound to Metallica Black album at the click of a button.

this pedal is amazing, you can dial in any kind of distortion you want, and it even has a built in gate that works awesome. this pedals dials have a huuuge amount of range and it is build like a tank. my only complaint would be that the battery access is under a plate that you need a Philips screwdriver to get at ( also where the adjustment for the gate is, though it is factory set pretty perfect imo and can be turned on off easy with a top mounted button ) and the A/c jack is on the side, which could potentially chew up some room on a pedalboard. Buy this pedal... its strengths are many and its weaknesses few.

Extremely versatile pedal with tons of options. Took me about an hour to dial in exactly what I wanted -- a nice beefy Dual Rectifier type sound at reasonable volume. The scoop button and frequency dial are awesome features that really expand the range of tones you can achieve. I also have the Metal Muff, which is great, but the Fullbore is better.

this is deffenitly worth buying if you desire something more out of your amp it gives more distortion when my mg10 is on clean and its switched on than when my amp is on overdrive and the switch is off

This little guy is an incredible power house! The noise gate and scoop select are amazing and the fact that you can easily modify your sound to almost any desired metal creation to your liking. Truly a gift from the metal GODS!
