Product Description

The Monolith from Laney's 'Black Country Customs' division is a versatile distortion pedal that dishes out a diverse range of sounds — from classic rock overdrive, through to thick high-gain bordering on fuzz. It's like having 3 distortion pedals in one!

Catering for many genres, the Monolith can become the only gain pedal you'll ever need. It does a great job at providing warm, soft overdrive sounds, but really shines when you turn up the heat. Whether you need a thick, powerful distortion or a biting tone that really cuts through in a mix — the Monolith will handle it. Regardless of style, it retains a wide dynamic response so that you can be expressive even with extreme settings.

Distortion Modes

  • D1 - Orange: Heavily-compressed distortion. Provides a smooth sound, but without loss of definition. For players who like a more controlled and "squeezed" tone.
  • D2 - Blue: Softly-compressed distortion. A more expressive sound with adaptive, even harmonics at lower levels. Allows you to "dig in" and attack notes with less hard compression.
  • O/D - Purple: Overdrive/distortion. Good for boosting your sound level or pushing the front-end of a valve amp. It's more open-sounding, with very little compression so that your amplifier or following effects will do most of the colouration for you.

Key Features

  • 3 Distortion Modes — Volume consistent between all three settings.
  • Unique Range Control — Adjusts the low-end content before distortion. Cleans up muddy-sounding pickups and high-gain settings.
  • Ultra Low-Noise Circuitry — High-quality components ensure that little noise is introduced when the pedal is engaged.
  • Transparent, Fully-Buffered Operation — Produces a punchy and present sound, even with long cable runs.
  • Tri-Colour LED — Provides a clear visual reference for which mode the pedal is running in.
  • Silent Switching — Prevents an audible "pop" when the effect is engaged. The only thing you should hear is a great-sounding product!
  • Low Battery Consumption — Get hours of use out of a single battery, or use a dedicated pedal PSU.


  • Solid Metal Chassis Construction
  • Dimensions (H x W x D): 58mm x 74mm x 121mm

Expecting to use as a one trick pony to add distortion as an option instead of my usual stacked overdrive sounds in front of my edge of breakup amp. I was wrong! This is a massively versatile pedal and is already part of my core drive pedal chain. The three modes are all highly usable and I end up stacking the modern distortion (D2) mode into a boutique UK made overdrive pedal for a huge range of tones. The controls are wide ranging so very easy to dial in the the "right" sound in live situations, now those are a thing again.
