The Blade Whitechapel signature boost pedal is one of the most powerful offerings from Fortin's popular and ever-growing stompbox lineup. Created in close collaboration with all three of Whitechapel's guitarists - Zach Householder, Alex Wade and Ben Savage; this potent boost pedal is designed to push the front end of any distorted amplifier to the heights of high-gain heaven.
Tightening your tone for maximum aggression, the Fortin Blade pedal has extra functionality with its treble (Cut) and bass (Deep) EQ controls; letting you carefully craft your tone to perfection. Featuring a red sawblade graphic on the front of the enclosure, this pedal certainly has a cutting sound that'll ensure you're heard in a frantic metal mix!
