DIGITECH X-Series® Metal Master™

as you can see, the pedal consists of 4 knobs:
  1. Level - utk control volume level
  2. Low - control bass freq
  3. Hi - control treble freq
  4. Morph - control distortion punya type / tone
first thing, aku set Level sesedap rasa, then set Low & Hi at 12 o'clock... then set the Morph level to zero.

ok, dari sini aku palm mute (dropped D) sambil pulas Morph knob clockwise... menarik! ada mcm2 tone distortion yg bersesuaian utk metal sound! mula dgn classic metal punya tone, then pulas sikit2, sound dia morph to a different tone, dan dgn pantas kita dapat bayangkan jenis music metal yg sesuai dgn tone tu...

then bila sampai kat area 11 - 1 o'clock aku dapat tone yg best utk citarasa aku.. then dari situ adjust Low n Hi knobs.. even boleh menghampiri sound Metal Zone (at a certain setting).. then aku pulas abis Morph knob to the max.. dapat la tone yg garang, sesuai utk low / drop tuning.. so aku try riff Metallica "Somekind of Monster".. fuhh.. kalau guitar tu tune drop C mesti lagi sejibik!

pedal ni mmg takde knob Mid, maybe sbb metal mmg terkenal dgn sound scoop mid dia, so depa eliminate terus knob tu heheh.. dan setelah beberapa jam menge'test', aku baru perasan.. pedal ni takde distortion punya knob! hahaha meaning mmg dia setting distortion level dia to the highest possible gain level, tanpa perlu bimbang akan gangguan feedback / noise.. nice!

yg menarik ttg pedal ni is that kita boleh dpt mcm2 jenis tone hi-gain distortion utk any metal genre (classic, modern, metalcore, metallica, pantera, etc) tanpa perlu pening kepala nak setting knobs mcm Metal Zone (hi, low, mid, mid-freq, distortion - 5 benda nak kena set!!).. dgn Metal Master, anda cuma perlu pilih tone distortion yg anda suka (Morph knob) then set Low / High freq sahaja - that's it!

note: kalau nak test pedal ni, make sure output dia di cucuk dari sumber yg betul.. ada 2 output (mixer / amp).. kalau pakai amp, guna la "output (amp)" sbb output lagi satu tu bunyi dia mcm dlm kotak skit (cabinet simulation - sesuai utk direct recording / mixer)..

kelemahan:
  1. price tag dia RM390.. kalau diskaun pon maybe boleh la dpt dlm RM350.. (AKHIR 2006)
  2. pedal ni utk metal sahaja.. jgn cuba utk menjinakkan sound dia (sbb mmg tak boleh, unless kalau ko tutup level dia).. kalau nak try dpt sound rock, beli la DS-1

Aku agak kechiwa dengan Digitech Grunge Guitar Effect.. Bunyi Grunge terlampau buatan.. Menghampiri metal's sound.. BOSS Distortion gak antara yg best...hmm

Grunge pedal, kalo nk guna pun. Kena set low knob tinggi dan high knob rendah. Kalo x, terlalu bingit dan terserlah digital sound pedal 2. Nk lagi sedap, campur dgn multi efx (paling koman ambik Zoom G1xN). Poof, alhamdulillah selama bbrp tahun dan bulan baru biasa skit pakai grunge pedal. Sound dia nk kena adjust dan kawal skit dari segi high knob kalo x, mmg susah kalo nk main rock chord (kalo lead mmg bleh dgr) when jammed dgn drum pasti drum x dengar apa yg lagu dimainkan dgn guna rock chord. Harap2 dgn tips ni bleh bantu guitarist lain kalo nk guna grunge pedal dgn baik.....
