Should I be concerned? At the least a little worried? My stomp pedal board will never be the same after I dropped into its signal chain the Ogre Thunderclap Distortion pedal. It's one of three new Ogre guitar stomp pedals that are packaged as disembodied heads of menacing and nightmarish demons sculpted in die-cast aluminum. They come in four anodized colors--gray, red, green and yellow and, when activated, all three pedals have glowing eyes (LEDs) to look up and "watch" you!
The Kronomaster Delay and Tubeholic Overdrive pedals are alien heads fitted with retractable frontal lobes that flip back to expose their essential controls. The Kronomaster digital delay has Time, Wet/Dry Mix and Feedback controls--you can get any delay sound from tight doubling to long musical slaps. Tubeholic has Level, Tone, and Gain controls and uses a NOS diode for symmetrical clipping but also works outstandingly as a clean booster as well.
The Thunderclap Distortion pedal is an even scarier-looking creature whose four horns function as level, bass, treble and gain controls. I found it to have a wide gain range great for metal tones especially with high-gain amps and I found the Fender Blues Junior amp I used never sounded as nasty as it did with this pedal in circuit!
All three of the new Ogre pedals sell for $299.99 MSRP each and for more information, check out: www.ogreusa.com.
