    Product Description

    Back in August 2018, Fender announced its first wave of ground-breaking guitar pedals to much acclaim. The MTG Tube Distortion Pedal, released at Winter NAMM 2019, is one of the latest in a string of innovations from Fender HQ and is no exception.

    A preamp tube-driven distortion pedal that enables guitarists to find that true breakup they’re so often searching for, without having to push amps to unbearable volume levels. The on-board three band EQ allows for bucket loads of tonal variety, whilst the option to polish your sound with a tightness control also exists. If that isn’t enough, you also have a separate foot switchable boost that has independent level and boost controls too! Complete freedom to create the sounds that you want.

    Whether you play at home, record in a studio or perform live, rest-assured that the MTG Distortion pedal will soon be a staple on many boards. It was co-designed with the one and only Bruce Egnater (who has worked with artists such as Steve Vai, Phil Collen, Chris Poland, Kirk Hammett and many more) and tested by musicians. After several rounds of feedback and iterations the MTG was born.

    The MTG Tube Distortion is packed full of features that you can both hear and see. It is an all-original Fender circuit, the chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminium, and the Amp Jewel LED gives your pedalboard the classic Fender look. Not to mention the cool subtle features and attention to detail that has become synonymous with the success of the Fender brand. You’ll find the ability to control the LEDs too.

    Here's what Fender say about the MTG Tube Distortion

    Many pedals try to emulate the sound of tube breakup; we decided instead of emulating tube distortion, we’d use actual vacuum tubes and give you the real deal in a compact pedal. The heart of the MTG’s design is a NOS (New Old Stock) US-made 6205 preamp tube. 3-Band EQ with Tight control and switchable boost—with its own Level and Boost controls—makes it easy to dial-in just the right sound.

    Co-designed with Bruce Egnater, the MTG Tube Distortion is an all-original Fender circuit. To ensure this pedal is performance-ready we let musicians kick it around, took their feedback to heart and refined it. The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminium, and the Amp Jewel LED gives your pedalboard the classic Fender look. The LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance.

    Use the MTG Tube Distortion on your next gig or session to bring the sound of true tube breakup to your rig.

    You really get to control the amount of overdrive and the overall tone nicely on this tube piano pedal.

    Mr Michael Cooper11th Apr 2019

    Sound quality and price are pretty good for the money, but it's not that well thought out logistically. No psu supplied and doesn't work on battery or a powerbank (not mine at least). The jewel is blindingly bright and means it's impossible to read the other controls which are pale writing on gold, so not distinct anyway. The boost operates incrementally so if you only have a bit of break up on the first channel you can't go to a full overdrive on the second channel. I prefer the system on the Blackstar HT Dual where the two channels are completely independent. It may do what you want, and it has it's uses if you already have a good hi gain channel 2 on your amp, but it's also got its limitations. Slightly disappointing.
