About this Nux Metal Core Deluxe Distortion Pedal

Forged in Hells Basement!

Nux Metal Core Deluxe

Our Metal Core Deluxe distortion pedal has 2 high-gain tone circuit positions and 2 great tones: Voice 1 gives you a responsive, percussive low-mid with smooth high frequencies. Voice 2 features a balanced EQ, well-suited for maximum shredding with a big solid punch. It has Level, Gain, and, very sensitive Bass and Treble controls that allow you to fine-tune any tone. Metal Core Deluxe also has a built-in Noise Gate with an adjustable gate parameter.

Voice 1

It is very characteristic, a gritty scooped metal distortion sound. Our Half Gain parameters are perfect for those shredders from hell that are into any type of classic groove metal playing. If you like to play more aggressive-groove thrash metal style, High Gain parameters will summon the bloody rain clouds all over the sky.

Voice 2

Modern distortion sound with well-balanced EQ frequencies, suitable for six-string-razor shredders. Half Gain parameters offer modernized classic heavy metal sound which is best for the rhythm playing. The parameters will inspire you to break up your metronome and go for a faster-than-a-bullet solo!

T-Lock Function

When you set your tone up to ready-to-play, use the toggle switch and activate T-Lock to protect your parameters.

Built-in Noise Gate

Metal Core Deluxe has a dynamic Built-in Noise Gate, and you can dial up your tone with any Gain parameters you desire. You can adjust the noise gate threshold essentially to avoid any signal loss. You can adjust the Gate Level as you needed

Hands down THE best budget metal distortion anyone can want.... Extremely versatile, the built in noise gate is amazing and the T Lock function is a blessing... If you're looking for metallicas black album tone then this pedal can handle it with ease... Switch it up and drop your tuning and you can handle anything from slipknot to meshuggah... Great pedal. Welcome addition to the board and of course artist guitars service is always amazing.

My New Favourite

This pedal is insanely good, the gate takes a bit to get down but the tone is so good with 7 and 8 string guitars, the harmonic response is great even at lower gain settings, I run this straight into a bass amp and the tone is PHAT and Djenty, I can't say enough good things about this pedal

Once again, an excellent pedal from Nu-X. Versatile, responsive Bass and Treble controls. Distortion much more than plain Metal. All the knobs/settings actually do what they are supposed to. Excellent build quality and value.
