    Code: DISTORTRON

    The Distortron™ is the gifted little sister to the Z.Vex “Box of Rock”. It is highly specialized to simulate the “everything on 10” sound of a classic Marshall ® JTM45 non-master-volume amplifier. You may use the Distortron™ effectively with many different amplifiers, but to get the sound I heard when I designed it, try it through an old-school non-master volume Marshall at least once. You may use your guitar’s volume control to adjust for the exact amount of distortion you need, all the way down to very clean and clear with most drive settings when the gain switch is set to “Lo.”

    Product Features

    • DRIVE: Sets the amount of distortion. Start around 1:00 o’clock.
    • TONE: Adjust for treble content. Start around 2:00 o’clock.
    • VOL: Adjust for output volume level. Start around 9:00 o’clock.
    • GAIN Switch: “Lo/Hi” lets you choose standard “Box of Rock” gain level or a slightly boosted level.
    • SUBS Switch: “2-1-3” lets you choose the full “Box of Rock” sub amount (3) or two different lower levels of subs depending on your amp’s needs.
    • DRIVE: The Drive is based on my original Super Hard-On gain control, so it may crackle when turned. This is perfectly normal. That’s why it says “Crackle Okay” by that knob.
    • Uses one 9V battery (preferably alkaline, but the unit is shipped with a carbon-zinc battery.)
    • The low current operation of this pedal’s circuit will give you extraordinarily long battery life.
    • Current draw is approximately 2mA.
    • A DC power jack (standard Boss configuration with center negative) is provided on the side of the pedal.
    • Use a high- quality 9V adaptor for all high-gain effects!
