Egnater Silversmith Distortion Pedal

Description

Looking at the Egnater lineup of pedals you already have the versatile all over tone machine with the Silversmith, you have a powerful extreme metal distortion with the Black Metal and a powerful hard rock and metal option with this the Silversmith. Based on some incredible medium to high amps this pedal has incredible clarity and punch with an awesome USA like tone.

The Distortion

On one half of the pedal you have a 4 control distortion that can fit pretty much any amp and guitar. Volume, Gain and Tone act as you would expect but it is the Contour control that gives this such versatility. With two different range options this controls the midrange and sweeps through from extreme scoop to a strong boost that fits your sound.

Tonally a great way to think about this pedal is like a hot rodded American amplifiers. Something along the lines of a 5150 mixed with an SLO which are both known for covering anything from classic rock to djent and extreme metal. Making it even more amp like you have a tight switch that lets you reduce the low end for a tighter attack and response.

The Boost

Based off of some of the worlds most popular clean to low gain boosters this section of the pedal is just as well thought out as the core overdrive. With drive, level and color controls that can produce anything from a completely clean volume boost to a soft gain drive you have ultimate control over just how you want your rig to sound.

The boost on this pedal is actually completely separate from the overdrive internally so you can use it independently if you wish. This is also means that you can choose in which order do you want the pedals to run using a small switch on the front. You can even select to wire them up differently into parts of your signal chain.

The Smaller Things

Great tone is essential for a pedal but sometimes it is the small things that make a pedal great and there are plenty of these touches on this pedal. From the tough metal housing with the massive Egnater logo the front to the high quality footswitches this pedal is made to take punishment on stage. Plus with the very cool low battery LED indicator you can tell when you need to replace the battery...you don't have to go on stage doubting the battery life as it will tell you as soon as you plug the pedal in.

Here's what Egnater say about the Silversmith Distortion

The Silversmith is a 100% pure analog, two-in-one Distortion and Boost pedal. The High Gain Distortion section boasts an extremely responsive tone control along with the Gain and Volume knobs to deliver a vast array of  seriously saturated tones. Contour allows you to accurately sculpt the critical midrange frequencies. Egnater's signature Tight switch provides control of the essential low frequencies. The Boost section is versatile and intuitive. Set the pedal for an ultra clean boost or dial in the perfect amount of grit. Drive tapers the amount of gain in your boost while Color shapes the overall tone and brightness. Tight controls the overall low frequency response. The Path switch selects the order of the Distortion and Boost. Patch jacks on the rear panel allow you to separate the Overdrive and Boost into two individual pedals.
