The Dynamic Distortion is a sonic hybrid of the two most iconic distortion pedals in Rock 'n Roll history, the Germanium Fuzz of the 60's and the TS Overdrive of the 80's. This legendary combo provides unmatched touch sensitivity and clean-up with your guitar volume knob from sparkley cleans, to overdrive, to fuzz, while providing the mid-range cut of a classic TS pedal and the full-bodied woolliness of a vintage Fuzz. The Dynamic Distortion has all the advantages of combining the tonal DNA of these historic pedals (TS & Fuzz) with none of the drawbacks: use a buffer before or after the the pedal with ZERO compromise in sound, get classic Fuzz tones that always cuts through the mix (most fuzzes get lost in the mix), get the full sweep of your Wah pedal with Dynamic Distortion set for Fuzz (impossible with vintage fuzz), and get the perfect mid-range Overdrive tone with plenty of low-end fatness and note bloom. With the thin/fat knob, the Dynamic Distortion offers an assortment of tones ranging from a robust classic British 4x12 sound to a treble-heavy RAT-style distortion. With the Dynamic Distortion, you can dial in legendary sounds or use its ultra-responsive controls to produce your own unique distortion tones.
Disclaimer: I won this pedal from Vertex on their YouTube site. Let me say, this pedal absolutely sounds amazing. I'm playing a Musicman Cutlass into a Fender Custom Deluxe Reverb, and I'm in tone heaven. The pedal cuts through the mix especially well, and is perfect for my blues/rock tone. The Dynamic Distortion does have plenty of gain on tap, but I prefer it around 10 - 11 o'clock. It doesn't really sound fuzzy at all to me. I also like the fact that it gives that great lead tone on the neck pickup and still sounds fat with the bridge. This is my first Vertex pedal, but I will definitely be checking out his other offerings after this.Feb/26/2019
I only tweaked the pedal a couple of times before taking it out for it's first gig and it sounded killer! It was an outdoors gig too in a very hot 40 degree Australian summer day so it survived the elements as well. Looking forward to getting more tones out of it!Feb/04/2019
