A good distortion pedal - Cool Cat Distortion

I just got this red Cool Cat Distortion, and I had high expectations, since I just loved the FAB Distortion pedal that Danelectro put out earlier. The Cool Cat however, is a much sturdier and higher quality pedal, and not surprisingly, it also sounds really good.

This pedal is not for metal, no it is more old school rock tones that you can expect to get out of it. It works really well with a clean sounding amp, whether it's tube of solid state.

The Cool Cat Distortion is in some ways similar to a tube screamer, but it is fatter and has less pronounced midrange. It does however clean up nicely as you roll off the guitar volume knob a bit. If you like to control the amount of dirt just by how you set your guitar's volume, this pedal is for you.

This pedal is also true bypass, which I like. The casing is made out of solid metal and the switch is heavy duty. Quite the upgrade from the previous plastic flimsy things Danelectro put out (although they sounded good too).

If you are tired of the tube screamer sound, give this pedal a try. It sounds fatter and richer than a tube screamer, in my opinion.

Get a Cool Cat Distortion at a good price from Musicians Friend
