The Mooer Black Truck is a portable and powerful multi-effects unit that can be easily transported to rehearsals and gigs, especially with its dedicated carry case. Providing you with 6 individual effect modules, this affordable floorboard is an all-encompassing alternative to the traditional pedalboard, with all of the essentials at your disposal.
Although it is flexible enough for a variety of styles, the Black Truck has been designed with hard rock and metal players in mind, especially with its built-in hi-gain distortion module.
6 Essential Effects
Tuner - The most important feature of the Black Truck is of course its tuner, as if you're not in tune, anything you play will sound bad! With a fast and highly-precise response, this accurate tuner will ensure that you're always ready to deliver the goods.
Space - To the right of the tuner you'll find the 'Space' module, which delivers time-based reverb and delay sounds. With the ability to use these effects independently via a toggle switch, you can also use them in unison for a truly engulfing and ambient experience. With the reverb and delay sections featuring the 2 and 3 essential controls respectively, you can easily manipulate their sounds to add a subtle extra dimension to your playing, or even set them up in an extreme manner for experimental tones.
Mod - The Black Truck's Mod section gives you access to three key modulation effects, letting you embellish clean arpeggios or riffs with some musical movement. Allowing you to select Phaser, Tremolo and Flanger effects, you can easily affect their sounds via thoughtful Colour, Range and Rate controls, as well as a timing knob for more precise control of the effect speed.
EQ - An underrated effect, EQ can let you shape your tone unlike anything else. With control over 5 key areas of your guitar's frequency spectrum, you can boost or cut the lows, mid-range and highs to achieve very particular sounds. It can also be used to compensate for deficiencies in your amp's base tone. For example, if you're running into a dark-sounding amplifier, you can raise the highs to ensure that you can cut through in a live mix.
Hi-Gain - This is where it really starts to heat up! The Black Truck's built-in distortion will give you pure metal tones at the press of a footswitch. With Tone and Tweak controls, you can influence your sound and fine-tune it just the way you want. However, we'd recommend using the Hi-Gain module in conjunction with the EQ, if you're really fastidious about your tone. A Mid switch enables you to add more punch, while the Gate switch will cut down excessive noise if you really crank the gain.
Comp/OD - For adding some squeeze to clean sections for a more consistent sound, the Black Truck's compressor section will handle it. With dedicated Volume and Comp controls, you can easily balance your signal output if you want an extreme compressor sound for funk, or a subtler and more natural sound.
The OD section works like a traditional overdrive, and when fed into the Hi-Gain distortion, you can really tighten up your sound and attain more saturation. With both the compressor and overdrive circuits engaged by a single footswitch, you can choose to turn off the compressor via a toggle switch on the front panel if you don't want it blended with the overdrive.
Although the main purposes of the footswitches are to engage and disengage each effect module, you can also use them to control the parameters of the delay and modulation sounds too. By pressing footswitches 1 and 2 together, you can set the time of the delay repeats, giving you an ergonomic tap-tempo function. The same applies for footswitches 2 and 3, but you instead influence the modulation rate, which is particularly useful for the tremolo effect. 3 and 4 together lets you manually control the tempo for the delay and mod sounds at the same time, for a hypnotic, synchronized vibe.
With stereo outputs, you can take full advantage of the time-based and modulation effects, giving you a three-dimensional spread. An integrated effects loop also allows you to place other pedals within the Black Truck's signal chain, but it also means that you can set up the Black Truck using the popular 4-cable method.
A direct output lets you also run the Black Truck into an audio interface or mixer for recording and live performance applications, with its speaker simulation convincingly emulating that traditional mic'd up cabinet sound.
